Clothing for Tube Fed Youngsters

Where can I go for clothing to help prevent ‘grabbing and smearing’ with a tube fed youngster during the night?


  • Fledglings do specialist clothing for gastro fed children, specifically Joey vests that do up over the tummy. We also use a sleeping bag that has a zip that does up from bottom and top that allows the tube to be connected in the tummy area, these sleeping bags are specially made to measure to the individual child. http://www.fledglings.org.uk
  • http://www.tummytunnels.com These are used to reinforce holes in clothing accommodating the gastro tube. They do ship to the UK- and it takes 5-7 days. The shipping fee is $14.50- but it doesn't seem to go up if you order 1 or 20! They are priced at $3.25 each.
