Your favorite feeding tube accessories - now available in matching or coordinating sets!
This listing is for a set consisting of an insulated feeding pump bag cover (in size small, medium, or large), a connector cover, a cord keeper (in your choice of lengths), and a cord clip made in a fabric of your choice from my stock of fabric.
Please see our currently available fabrics and enter your selection plus a backup in the space provided. You can also choose two different fabrics for your items, just note which fabric is for which item.
Insulated Feeding Pump Bag Cover:
Our Feeding Pump Bag Covers are such simple devices that make life so much easier. They are insulated to help keep your feed and ice pack cold and they're roomy enough to hold both a full feeding bag and an ice pack of reasonable size. They'll fit inside your backpack - or any other bag.
"I used the bag last night and put [a few small] ice packs in there... I filled up her bag to the top last night and the bit that was in there yet this morning was ICE COLD! Awesome, thank you so much! It eliminates my needing to get up every few hours to add formula!"
Our Feeding Pump Bag Covers snap ALL the way around, opening completely flat. This means no need to string the tubing through a small opening in the bag - and it means you can wrap the cover around a bag that's already running.
The insulating material is a high quality, densely-woven fleece by Malden Mills. This stuff insulates better than lunchbags and oven mitts. Our experience and that of our testers and customers has been that these covers plus a decent quality ice pack will keep a feed cold for an entire day or an entire night. Please Note: You *must* use an ice pack with this bag if you want to keep your feed chilled for more than an hour or so. It is not a refrigerator. :)
The inside surface of the cover is flannel, not waterproof fabric. The flannel absorbs the condensation from your feed and ice pack, bringing an end to bothersome dripping. This insulated bag also does NOT have a pocket for an ice pack. This means better cooling for your feed, and also lets you use whatever size ice pack you have on hand while giving your bag a longer life (fewer opportunities to tear the bag's interior).
Not every snap position will be used in every situation. Snap the cover around your feeding pump bag however it works for your set-up. Most people find that they prefer to use the hang loop inside the cover for Infinity bags, while they don't use the inside hang loop for Kangaroo - but however you use it is up to you. If you find you're not sure how best to use your bag with your current setup, please just message us!
Please note: You MUST wash these regularly. Machine wash cold, tumble dry low or air dry. I recommend washing weekly or any time it gets visibly dirty, gets formula or food spilled on it, experiences a feeding bag explosion, etc.
How cool any cover (or lunch box) will keep your food will vary with the ice pack you use, volume and thickness of your food, and the temperature of your environment. I encourage you to monitor the temperature of your food for safety while using this or any insulated cover. No guarantee is made that your food will maintain any specific temperature.
CHOICES TO MAKE for the insulated feeding pump bag cover:
These covers come in three sizes
- Small will fit ONLY Infinity brand 500 mL bags. This size is about an inch shorter than size Medium.
- Medium will fit BOTH Kangaroo brand 500 mL size bags AND Infinity brand 500 mL size, or similar. It will accommodate bags up to 7 inches wide and 9 inches tall.
- Large will fit Infinity 1200 mL bags, Kangaroo 1000 mL size bags, or similar. Large will also fit the Kangaroo 500 mL bags nicely with just a bit of extra cover. It will accommodate bags up to 7 inches wide and 15 inches tall.
You can choose whether or not your cover has a pocket for an ice pack. A pocket is NOT needed - most customers just toss their ice pack in the cover once the bottom snaps have been fastened. However, if you WANT a pocket, we can certainly add one for you.
Cord Clips help manage medical tubing to make your life easier! These flexible, versatile clips hold feeding tubes, IV tubes, dialysis tubing, ventilator tubing, and really any other type of medical tubing.
Simply snap the Cord Clip's fabric length around whatever tubing you want to wrangle, and then clip the easy-open/secure-close clip to clothing, backpack, wheelchair, or any handy surface.
Use them to corral the extra length of the tubing between your feeding pump and your g-tube. Use them to keep tubes separated from each other. Use them to relieve pulling at the stoma by supporting the weight of the tubing.
We Put two sets of snaps on our Cord Clips to increase the Clip's versatility. You may use both sets of snaps, or just one set, whichever makes the most sense in your situation.
And we use four layers of fabric in our clips for a sturdier, longer-lasting, easier to handle clip.
- Easy to Use
- Easy-open/Secure-close clip
- Cotton fabric strip, poly snaps and clip
Machine washable (make sure the clip and snaps are closed). Air dry.
Our Connector Covers snap securely and firmly around your feeding tube connection - blocking little fingers, stopping accidental openings and disconnections, and preventing the mess that results. Each Connector Cover has 7 closely-spaced snaps to completely enclose your feeding tube connection, and to keep the cover in its proper place. It won't slide down and expose the connection.
Our Connector Cover features two prints and a layer of padding. The padding further protects the connection, avoiding the risk you face with fabric-only covers that the med port could be bumped or pried open trough the fabric. These work equally well with legacy connectors as well as the purple EnFit connectors.
The Connector Cover will fit connections with one or two ports. These are typical of feeding tubes with buttons (Mic-key, Mini, Bard, AMT's GJ tubes) Some styles of non-button GJ tubes have three ports. If this is what your tube looks like (GJ, 3 ports) please contact us about a custom Connector Cover. We do make them, we just don't get enough demand to keep them in stock.
Our Cord Keepers help keep lines away from curious fingers, help reduce occlusion, reduce the risk of entanglement at night, and are just plain fun. They may be pinned to clothing near stomas or entry sites or to legs or feet of pajamas, but should not be pinned to collars. Many caregivers use these at night to tuck cords along the side of the crib or bed. They've even been known to make grumpy children more accepting of their various tubes.
Cord Keepers will hold 1-3 IV or feeding tube-size tubes. Cord Keepers close with high-quality KAM snaps located every four inches along the length. Tubes can enter and exit the Cord Keeper at any point. Please use common sense when using the Cord Keepers. Do Not attach to the patient's collar. Keep exhalation ports uncovered. Completely remove Cord Keeper when doing any maintenance on the lines - connecting or disconnecting IV tubing, for example.
Our Custom Cord Keepers are available in seven standard lengths -OR- we can make them any length you wish. Cord Keepers close with high-quality KAM snaps located every four inches along the length. Tubes can enter and exit the Cord Keeper at any point.
Not sure what length you need? It depends entirely on your intended use and your personal preference. Got a small tubie who wears his pump in a backpack and wants something fun covering the tube as it goes from backpack to belly/nose/port? The 12 inch size will probably work great. Got a tubie who keeps her feed on a wheelchair pole? Depending on how far away she is from the pump, 23 or 35 inches would be perfect. The best way to decide what will work best for your needs is to actually measure the length of the tubing you want to cover.
Personalization with Names/Phrases is available
If you would like your item to be personalized with a name or short phrase, please type EXACTLY the name or phrase you'd like in the space provided. We'll copy paste exactly what you've typed, so check to make sure it's right, and don't include punctuation unless you want it on your item. Also indicate the font you prefer (by number) as well as what color thread you prefer (if you have a preference - if no preference is indicated, we'll choose what we think would look best).
If the print you've chosen is busy (lots of colors, lots of details), a thicker/fatter font will show up better.
We do not accept returns on embroidered items for any reason.
We *may* be able to accommodate requests for embroidered designs, as well. Cost will vary. Please contact us to discuss.
Cord Clips can't be personalized.
