Quoting Beaunkev:“ I want to know if anyone here gives there child pureed food or baby food through there child's g- tube? ... [snip!] ... and she seems more active. But I want to know if anyone has tried it before and had problems with it or it turned out great?”
I personally give my son cereal and baby food through his g tube. He is ten months old and born with esophageal atresia and down syndrome so he has had a g tube since he was 5 days old. They told me not to give him any pediasure or baby food down his tube until after he was a year which is only a couple months now,However he was a point where he stopped gaining weight so i decided we had to take it upon our selves. Honestly they now no how we do it because he is finally gaining some weight after months. He is almost a year and only at 13 pounds. I think it works fine. We dont put food down every feeeding but about 2 times out of the day. As long as there going to the bathroom ok it should not be a problem .
