|Tube Feeding Tips: Clothes to Hold Tubes|
Clothes Hold Tubes, IV Lines, Bags
The BundieBaby is a onesie-like outfit designed for children with G/J-tubes, ostomy bags, bile bags, central lines, and/or other medical devices attached to the torso. Jody Williams designed the outfit to overcome some of the challenges she faced as a foster parent of medically fragile infants; namely, keeping active infants/toddlers safe from tugging on necessary tubes, lines and bags, and comfortable during frequent changes due to leaks or doctor exams.
The front panel is equipped with two special pockets. A smaller front pocket on the left stores gastrostomy tubing, and can hold a standard nursing pad as well to absorb leaks. A larger pocket behind the G-tube pocket accommodates ostomy bags, bile bags or other medical devices attached to the torso. The inside side seams have ties to secure a central line or apnea monitor leads.
The Bundie’s front panel can be removed and replaced with a clean panel without lifting or disrobing the wearer. The armholes open completely for ease in dressing, especially those with IV lines attached to the arms. The snaps are plastic so the outfit can be worn during MRI testing.
