Anyone have a baby with a G-tube?

What's it like to have one at home? My daughter just got one today and I'm interested in some real life stories.

  • Yes my son has one. After the first few nights home you will be a pro at dealing with it. It doesn't bother my son at all, he actually was running around and playing the first day home from the hospital. I am constantly telling him "be careful with your tubie" but he doesn't care. It doesn't slow him down a bit! Feel free to PM me with any questions. Are you getting a pump? I highly recommend the zevex infinity. My son has a mic-key button and we even change it ourselves at home. Guess it helps that I'm a nurse, but really my only experience with g tubes was nursing school and then my son getting his.
