Leakage...

How do I get this darn feeding tube stop leaking???

For the second day in a row, Princess was soaked in stomach contents dropping her off at day care. I know she did not spit up because nothing was on the blanket I had over her.

If she gets mad and cries while feeding, the formula will back out of her tummy up back into the syringe. Once the backup busted the whole thing and popped the syringe loose spilling formula and medicine everywhere!

Yes, the both caps on the tube are closed.

See why I asked for a button? Couldn't they have just listened? One month 2 weeks until she can get a button.

    We have a client at my work that has the same type tube. we wrap hers with a disposable pad piece, plastic on one side, pad area on the other and then wrap that with gauze, it at least prevents it from leaking all over her clothes.

    That sucks, why couldn't they have listened to the person who was going to be dealing with it!

    I called social services and our orientation will be Feb. 26th!

    Anonymous,

    I actually don't want it to "break" anymore because I recently learned if it "breaks" before 2 months, that means surgery. After 2 months, it can be changed without surgery from my understanding.
