Any one know if there are G tube covers or a sock that will go over a G tube to stop a child from pulling on it?

  • You could try wrapping a bit of gauze or an ace bandage around the tube & extension and also pin the extension to the bandage. If you get a g-button, then you won't have the extension to deal with and a button is really easy to cover up with clothes or a gauze patch because it is so small and relatively flat.

    JackieGirl007 - A g-tube is a gastronomy tube. It is used to feed food (typcially a special formula) directly into the stomach when a person either cannot eat by mouth or is not eating enough by mouth to stay alive and, in the case of a child, grow.
