Anyone's LO been on a feeding tube? My 3 month old has had hers for a couple weeks, but she keeps yanking on it! And she tries to peel her tape off...any ideas on how to keep the tube out of the way? It goes through her nose.

My daughtet had an OG at the hospital, but not at home. Have you tried taping it up over her head (or across her cheek and behind her ear) so it's not hanging in front of her? Does she mess with it often?

Yes, she messes with it so much, she plays with the tape until it comes off and then out comes her tube! I can put it back in and check it, I'd just...rather not ya know?
