Your favorite feeding tube accessories - now available in matching or coordinating sets!
This listing is for a set consisting of a size large (for 1000/1200 mL feeding sets - will fit either Joey or Infinity) insulated feeding pump bag cover, a connector cover, a 12 inch long Cord Keeper, and a Cord Clip.
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!"
The cover included in this listing is a LARGE. It will fit both Kangaroo brand 1000 mL size bags AND Infinity brand 1200 mL size, or similar. It will accommodate bags up to 7 inches wide and 14 inches tall.
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.
Technical details: 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 cover has a large pocket for an ice pack, which lets you use whatever size ice pack you have on hand.
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. Please dry completely between uses.
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 is made with a hidden 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.
Cord Keepers are available in several different lengths. The Cord Keeper included in this listing is 12 inches long.
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.
Ice pack, feeding set, feeding pump, and any other photo props not included.
