g tube feeding issues

Tanya - posted on 10/20/2015 ( no moms have responded yet )




My son was a micro preemie. He is now a year old. He had a ng tube throughout his stay in the NICU and had a G tube placed prior to coming home at 5 months of age.
He is on a pump feed all night and gets bolus feeds during the day every 4 hours which are also pump fed. He enjoys his feedings in his mamaroo but he is now 19 pounds and the base is going. I have looked into most of the swings and they are all max weight of 25 pounds.
What do other moms do for their babies who have to remain still while feeding or who have reflux issues at night which make laying down impossible.....
I have called my insurance company but have not had any luck finding a swing that will work for a child over 25 pounds.

Help please.....
