What is a nasogastric tube feeding?
A nasogastric (NG) tube is a small tube that goes into the stomach through the nose. Breast milk, formula, or liquid food is given through the tube directly into the stomach, giving your child extra calories.
Checking the tube placement
To prevent aspiration, you must check the tube placement before each feeding, to be sure it has not moved. The stomach should be as empty as possible when checking for placement, so time each placement check before medications or feedings.
