Tube Feeding

Before Little Samantha was on tube feeding, my Sister have to spend 2 to 3 hours daily bottle feed her including night feed. Although she did not complain of lack of sleep, we know how much she and my BIL suffered cos both of them lost so much weight.  Sis doesn’t need the corsets to looks thin now.

For first timer like me, I’ve always thought that tube feeding is like a drip that was attached to the body 24/7.  Baby’s tube feeding is different.  Other than the tube that goes in to the nose, the other end of the tube was attached to the machine only during feeding time.  Milk formula was pour into the bag and you just need to hook up all the tubes, set the buttons and leave the machine to do all the 3 hours feeding work, while my Sis can go back to catch her beauty sleep (provided the baby did not cry).

    The best part is that you don’t have to worry whenever she refuses to drink. This kinda ensure that she gets sufficient intake.

    And now I’m putting on weight again.
