If your child is tube fed like mine then for sure peg tube covers will become an important part of your child’s feeding accessory kit.

You probably have noticed like I did that when you attach the tube you do tend to get stared at by nearby people.  Mostly out of curiosity but sometimes people can lack even minimal tact, to say the least.  

Once someone said to me ‘Oh it’s kind of like blowing up an inflatable pool toy’! simply because the mic-key button looks kind of similar.  

If your child can understand then this can be potentially harmful to his self-confidence and even if it doesn’t outwardly bother him we all deserve to live with dignity.

Adorable Pads G/J Tube Review


How Can These Covers Benefit My Child?

So one of the best things you’re going to be on the look out for is peg tube covers. They just kind of humanize the whole idea of g-tube feeding in my opinion.  

They fit snugly around the tube insert making the area a whole lot more user-friendly.  They come in great styles and different colors too.

They totally cover the part of the tube which goes directly into the stomach, and they also absorb any liquids that may sometimes escape the button.

Therefore keeping the place hygienic and esthetic.  They are not expensive and can be washed and reused many times.  (We’ve had ours for a couple of years now and they’re still in great shape).

  • Who needs boring medical gauze when you can use these reusable peg tube covers instead!
  • They absorb any spills from stomach juices or formula and pretty much eliminate the problem of granulation.
  • The first layer has extra soft fleece next to the skin, felt to absorb liquids in the middle and a great and fun pattern on the outside.
  • 100% machine or hand washable!
  • Made In The USA
  • Can They Be Used For Adults Too?

    These feeding tube pads got such great reviews on Amazon – 5 stars! Which is impressive, to say the least. In fact, I was not able to find any negative reviews. 

    They can be used for adults and children alike.  Doctors and nurses always compliment us on them and think they are a great idea.

    Before we had these for Natan Shai he was also experiencing tape burn from the cello tape we used daily with the gauze pad to absorb excess liquids. So we are very grateful not to have any more tape burn and use these great looking pads instead.

    Conclusion

    There are suitable styles for all, boys or girls, young or mature.

    If you would like to read more about g-tube feeding then you can see our experience here and also the before and after pictures.   This was one of the absolute best things we did for Natan Shai, our son.

    Also if you have your own story related to g-tube feeding I would love to hear from you in the comments below!  I love connecting with other special needs parents and enjoy learning from you all!

    Sometimes it’s not easy to be a parent to a special needs child but when we stick together and help one another out it makes life a whole lot easier

    So please feel free to connect with me and also to ask questions.  Please remember that the only ‘silly’ question is the one that’s not asked

    With much love,

    Hannah (Natan Shai’s Mum)

      Hi, All I can say is GOD BLESS YOU. What an awe inspiring web site. You make everything, easier to understand, such as the difference between HYDRAENCEPHALY & HYDROCEPHALUS. The idea of those peg covers is great. They could only help a child who is already going thru so much already. Please kiss your son for me and you’ll both be in my prayers.
