Pediatric Tube Feeding Guide

We are pleased to offer our new “Pediatric Tube Feeding Guide” for free. This guide provides comprehensive information about tube feeding, including how to care for your child’s tube and the skin around it, how to deliver feedings and how to prevent common complications. This information does not replace the advice of your healthcare professionals.

Once you enter in your information and click “Submit Request,” you will receive an email with a link to a digital PDF copy of our booklet.

This reference booklet adds to Shield HealthCare’s GROW community with guidance on how to resolve common feeding tube complications, how to execute different types of feeding methods, and how to use different types of pumps.

Our GROW with Shield program provides specialized support and products to help keep children with complex health care needs at home and thriving with their families. We focus on parent and caregiver support to promote healthy development and well-being.

If you are a health care professional, we welcome to you to contact your local Shield HealthCare sales office to discuss your patient’s needs with a representative.
