I heart a Tubie
Did you know that this week is feeding tube awareness week? Well it is.There is a whole web site dedicated to tubies. I have seen plenty of tubies at the Choc clinics, but have yet to see a tubie in the wild. I would love to spot one. I have to admit, I have gotten some stares while feeding Davy in public places. I am in no way offended by it. I get it...it's different. I am sure people are wondering what the heck I'm doing. I will say and I am sure most special needs moms would agree with me, ask me about it. I'll even let you watch up close.
Davy has been having major success in the solid food department. But the poor girl can not get the bottle down quite yet. This picture shows it perfectly. She sticks it to the side and chomps, liquid pours out the other side and then she drops the bottle. Brittany (OT) thinks we should maybe try a sippy cup. So that is happening this Thursday. Wish us luck. Oh and if you have a tubie in your life give them a squeeze.
