NG and Peg feeding - HELP!
Hi I am new to this site. My daughter had a baby girl in july 2016. When she was born my daughter tried to breast feed but baby just wasn't happy. So she was bottle fed. She was taking bottles fine until she was about 3 months old and was really crying and distressed my daughter took her to A&E. Tests were done and they diagnosed reflex. They kept her in to do routine tests. They diagnosed a large ASD heart defect. Which has now been operated on. When she was around 4 months she started to refuse a bottle and it's been hard work since. They fitted a ng tube and she has been fed like that since. My daughter tries every feed to give her a bottle a beaker cup etc. And solids she will drink half oz sometimes a little more she will only take a couple of spoons of food. She gags if trying any more. Gosh has now said she has an unsafe swallow. They are going to fit a peg. I don't think she has an unsafe swallow I think it's the tube. Help anyone please. Thank you
