Resources for Families

Welcome to the heart of our website!

This section is by families, for families, supported by clinicians and researchers. We hope it will be helpful to you as a parent of a child with feeding difficulties.

These resources are focused on tube-feeding, and especially children who feed using NG tubes, perhaps eventually having a PEG inserted instead.

We hope to cover other aspects of feeding difficulties in the future. To help us plan what content to add, you can share your story with us.

We hope you find these resources interesting, reassuring, and useful.

However, every tube-feeding experience is different, and we all have different views as parents. So you might find some bits surprising or less relevant, and you might disagree with some of the suggestions.

We’d love to hear from you if you think there’s something we have missed, a tip or trick you can offer, or an aspect of your story that is different and that you’d like to share.

Choose one of these main topics as a place to start!
