When it comes to tube feeding, Dubbo mum Amy McIntyre would like it to be talked about a bit more.

Mrs McIntyre's six-year-old son Max has been tube fed since he was nine-months-old, and although it is a normal feeding process she said it sometimes feels as though it isn't being responded to as one.

Feeding Tube Awareness Week, which runs from February 2 to 8, will focus the spotlight on tube feeding and the day-to-day impact it has on individuals, carers and their families.

Mrs McIntyre said it would be great if more people had a wider understanding around tube feeding.
