your baby has an NG tube without any underlying condition and you wondering why
your baby is not eating or why not breastfeeding and why your G.I. pediatrician
has the tube in your baby then you must read this article.
Tip: I and my wife started eating in front of our baby so that she can smell and see what we are doing because babies usually imitate everything that you do and thats how they learn. I tried eat food which she can eat too and tried offer the same food from my bowl that I am eating and slowly she started eating. She wasnt trusting because in the hospital they fed her all the nasty thing and did all the nasty tests on her so she had that trauma in her mind so I had win her trust. Yogurt worked best in our case. But you have to be careful in yogurt because you will have to wait at least 2 hour to feed her milk before and after feeding yogurt otherwise it will damage her digestion system and it is no good for her growth either.
So the simple logic here is, if you keep her hungry your baby will eat for sure. Make sure your baby has gained good enough weight from the tube that even if your baby loses weight she can still be above 10 percentile. My baby dropped to 9 percentile when we removed tube. We decided that if she reaches 5 percentile we will still try not to put the tube back in. She is not 29 percentile. Not all the babies are meant to be on higher side of weight. God has programmed some babies to be on lower side so she can be slim trip when she grows up.
Doctors will also scare you that your babies brain and other parts will stop growing. There are many other factors. If you are asian then your babies will on lower percentile because thats how asians are. So it depends on your family and race. If everyone in your family is slim then you cant expect your baby to me heavy weight. Most people from developing countries are malnourished and struggle for food and are underweight but it doesnt mean they all are dumb and their brain has not developed. In fact people from India where malnourished cases are pretty high produce the smartest babies - its a talent factory over there.
I am not a Doctor but I am a dad who loves my child more than anyone in this world. I would recommend you to use your common sense and follow your instincts, do not follow and trust doctors or anyone blindly. Be confident and fight this, dont think that you are alone in this. Many people go through this but with confidence and determination you can definitely get rid of that nasty tube. I know tube has saved life of my baby but at the same time when you keep it more than its really needed just because some nasty doctors out there can make money then it becomes nasty. I hope this helps mothers and parents out there who are going through this. I know it is very painful to see your child going through this and so I want to share my experience to help other parents out there. Happy parenting.
