  • What's the question. My dd doesn't, but when I saw younger I baby sat a boy with one. Doc's said he wouldn't live past 6 months, he's now in his 20s but has the mind of a 6 month old. He can eat with his mouth, but gets most of his nutrients from the tube.

  • My son had a NJ feeding tube when he had infant botulism. He was 5 months old and had it for two months. As he healed, he pulled out his tube 2 times and tried a 3rd. What info are you looking for?

  • My daughter was also born with CDH. She started out getting her nutrition via IV. Then, she had an NG tube. That went to an NJ tube, and then an ND tube. Just this past Thursday, she had surgery to have a G-tube put in and she's been doing great with it. Hopefully she'll be home soon. =)
