There's a lot of research and anecdotal evidence that ng insertions really interfere with sensory aversions. I don't know if that's why your little one has issues.
I have told DD's doctors that I would go ahead with a button over an ng again.
Sorry. .. I'm probably not being helpful but I know that ng tubes can be problematic with eating/drinking.
We've always had trouble with DD when she's had ng tube feeds.

Yes some of the problem is sensory but he just can't eat most food. His tummy doesn't break it down or absorb it properly.

We start tomorrow. He was on it before but they moved him into fortini. Now his tummy can't Handle it. So we are hoping the peadiasure is not as heavy.

I hope so too. That's not nice and very stressful.
There's also a Nestlé one called nutren jnr.
I've been trying to see if it is supplied in Australia as it has less sugar.
Is there any chance you could use a different type of formula with added calories that's better on the tummy.
DD used to have allerpro for about 15 months made up at 1 and half strength for extra calories.

I'm not sure if those are an option for us. We are in NZ. I'll ask though. The dietitian had not mentioned any other options. We are waiting to see the pead again after his last stint with the ng tube. She wanted to wait a month to start testing again.

Yes. I just hate the food strikes and worry over failure to thrive. The thought of a tube fixes most of our issues. Plus he doesn't chew food so that doesn't help.

No I have not. I'll look into that. Maybe our speech therapist knows.
