New Feeding Pump

During the night, Noah is put on a pump which slowly puts food through his G-tube directly into his stomach. We have actually been using the pump at night for several months because we found Noah tolerates food much better while sleeping. Before he has his fundoplication surgery, Noah would throw-up an ounce or two of food after every feeding during the day. At night, however, he would only throw-up once. In order to help him gain weight, we slowly fed him all night long. His old Kangaroo pump attached to an IV pole and was quite large and difficult to travel with...although we took it on every overnight trip we've been on.
On Friday, a nurse came to the condo and traded his Kangaroo pump for a new portable pump. We are SO thrilled with how small and compact it is. It is so portable, that Noah can strap it on and carry it himself - although we just put it next to his crib at night.It truly is the little things in life that make me smile!

  2. Even though the new pump is little in size, it is definately a HUGE thing. Good things come in small packages, for sure! And with a backpack just his size, Noah is already getting a taste of school life :-)

  9. Little Noah looks like a Bartlett in this snapshot of him trying out his new backpack. I can see some of his great Grandpa Bob in his profile. Such a handsome lad! :-)
