We were invited to share our experience on NGT and PEG feeding during a support group sharing at KK Hospital in April 2013.
Chloe was on NGT for more than 1 year and according to her SLT (speech therapist), it might take years before Chloe could manage total oral feeding.
For parents who are thinking of having a feeding button for their child, we highly recommend you to do so. If your child is on NGT for more than 6 months already and she/he has no other complication, then you should consider button feeding.
Please clip the following link to know more if you are thinking of switching over to PEG button from NGT feeding.
