  • I was a night nurse for a family whose daughter was a Quadrapledgic and she had one. It helped her. Just make sure you keep a feeding chart to record how much she is eating and the calories she is getting. I'm sorry to hear that your little one might have to go through this. She will be in my thoughts and prayers! Good Luck!
