It's Taco Tuesday any day of the week with this fun feeding pump accessory set. Your favorite feeding tube accessories - now available in matching or coordinating sets!
This listing is for a set consisting of a size medium (for 500 mL feeding sets) insulated feeding pump bag cover and a connector cover.
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!"
These covers come in multiple sizes. The cover included in this listing is a MEDIUM. It 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.
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 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). You can see from the picture how the ice pack simply tucks into the cover along with your feeding set.
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.
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.
