|Tube Feeding Tips: Tube Cleaning|
Tube Cleaning Tip
I am the foster mom of a 10 month old with severe reflux and complete oral aversions. She is fed by G-J tube only. I wanted to share my tube cleaning tip. While running hot water through her feeding set, I put the tube between two prongs of a fork, then bend the tube and put it between the next two prongs. Next slide the fork from top to bottom in the same direction the water is flowing. Repeat if needed. I have installed two hooks above my kitchen sink to hang the bag on while doing this and to hang the extra tube on to dry between uses.
