Tube Feeding Tips: G-tube Holder
Share |

Makeshift G-tube Holder

Our son Steven is a very active sleeper and we worried about him pulling on his G-tube. To hold the tube in place, we use a nametag clip. First we make a loop out of his tube, then we wrap the plastic loop from the name tag around his tube and snap it shut. The clip part we attach to his diaper. This makeshift holder gives Steven room to move around without the tube pulling on his stomach. When he had a G-J tube, we did the same thing so the tube did not dangle.

Editor’s note: this tip was first published in MUMs National Parent-to-Parent Network Newsletter.
