Lecture Overview

The number of enteral-fed infants and children with a nasogastric tube, gastrostomy or jejunostomy has significantly increased in the last 20 years. Best practice indicates that the transition to oral feeding should be established as soon as tube feeding is no longer appropriate. This session discusses what to plan in order to wean an infant or toddler from tube feeding.
