Tubie Accessories. A MUST for any tubie!
This is a great way to carry barrier creams, syringes, and other tubie supplies! We carry two of these. One we carry that is pre-filled with all of her meds pre-drawn in the syringes. The other we carry has half empty syringes and half syringes full of water for flushing. I purchased mine from Sew Very Foxy on Etsy and it was great quality!
Port Connection Covers
These have been a lifesaver! Well that was until my little figured out how to open them! So now, we do two port connection covers over top of an AMT clamp (below). I purchased mine from Sew Very Foxy on Etsy and they were great quality. I initially only purchased two, but then we realized we would want more, so now we have 8.
Insulated Feeding Bags
These are a MUST for kiddos who are on overnight continuous feeds! Most formulas are only able to be at room temp for 4 hours. Add these insulated covers over them and they can go much longer! These have a side to put the ice pack in and the feeding bag on the other side, snap closed, and you're good to go!
This is a LIFE SAVER. This not only was awesome when we had the NG tube (placing those can get tricky when kiddos hands get involved). They're also great with G tube changes and cleaning if you can strap them down, then fold the strap just enough to get to the tube site! You can get this from many sites. I got mine from Buy Buy Baby.
AMT Clamp Feeding Tube Clamp Connector keeps tube connectors fastened together and helps prevent leaks. This is an excellent solution for feeding line/g-tube separation worries. My child receives the bulk of the daily feeds at night and it is great not to have wake up to a bed full of formula! I put this on first, then a connection cover or two over top! We were able to get ours from our DME (Insurance didn't cover it, but it was only $14.)
Button pads can help absorb leakage from the stoma and tube and help to reduce irritation and inflammation around and under the tube. Many parents and doctors feel that they help reduce and prevent granulation tissue. And, they are fun when so little about tube feeding is. We made our own, but you can buy them from a ton of sites! Feeding Tube Awareness has a good list!
We appreciate your support!
