Paige does not have one so I am not help. Just know that she (and you) will be in my T&P's.
I know there is (or used to be) at least 1 or 2 moms of kids with feeding tubes. I hope they chime in with some help.

((hugs)) My daughter had an NG tube for awhile, but we didn't have experience with G-tubes. However, I posted on this great support forum where there are parents with lots of feeding issues with their kids: http://www.parent-2-parent.com/forum/

There's a lot of knowledgeable people on there, and even if you don't sign up or post, you can still read what others have written on the subject. Good luck to you.
I predict a riot.

Thanks ladies. She has a ng tube now, but it is interfering with her physical therapy, and her body is rejecting it. She is always sick. From what I understand the g-button is going to make a huge difference, but it seems so permanent. I keep wondering if she is every going to eat anything but pediasure.
