What is peg feeding?

Peg feeding...

Gastroenterologist
PEG feeding is when nutrition is given via a tube placed in the stomach through the skin. The tube is usually placed by a GI doctor during an endoscopy procedure. Many types of patients who cannot eat normally but have functioning GI tracts benefit from this type of feeding.

what's a feeding tube for?

Help with feeding

Neck-throat
A feeding tube is used to help patient's with food intake. The tube will either be put down the throat, or there are more options for long-term care (e.g., a tube surgically placed in the abdomen, to directly access the stomach). Many situations call for feeding tubes; comatose patients, patients with esophageal or swallowing problems, etc.

When should I do feedings?

When baby is hungry!

Developmental_pediatrics
Babies who are otherwise healthy are pretty good self-regulators; they'll let you know when they need to eat and when they are full. Most babies will feed every 2 to 3 hours or so, but this is quite variable - and it changes over time. Some newborns seem to do well feeding every 4 to 5 hours and some seem to need fed every 1 to 2 hours. Discuss your routine with your pediatrician.

What is feeding on demand?

When baby wants

Eating
On demand feeding refers to feeding the baby when baby wants as opposed to feeding on a set schedule. In the newborn period, on-demand feeding is usually the best way to feed (with, perhaps, a few caveats to make sure the baby isn't snacking and is getting other needs met - diaper changes, burping, sleep, etc.).

Is breast feeding heatlhy?

Yes

Eating
Breast milk is the one material specifically designed for babies that is readily available, requires no refrigeration or mechanical assistance in use & will not trigger an allergic reaction. Many aboriginal populations that totally breast feed for the first 2 yrs have better muscle/bone indexes than American kids over the same period.

How do you feed an anorectic?

Very difficult

Anorexia
Anorexia nervosa is a serious and potentially lethal disease. In my opinion it is a biochemical disorder, not "psychological". The urgent need is for vitamin therapy given intravenously. Find a physician registered with the American College for the Advancement of Medicine website and look for a physican in your geographical area.

Dr. Paul E. Trani answered:

When can I feed my baby corn?

6 months

Baby
Most experts agree nowadays that the previously-held theories about limiting food exposure to babies to prevent food allergies were poppycock and actually caused MORE food allergies. That said, corn is a vegetable that would need to be mashed up to be given to a smaller infant, so it's not the best first food for a baby, but 6 months old should be a fine age to introduce it.

Dr. Robert Kwok answered:

When can I feed my baby fish?

10-12 months

Baby
If a parent wants to feed a baby fish, wait until the baby is old enough to be able to eat pureed meats, which are a bit drier/stickier than the baby-food veggies or fruits. This is usually around 10-12 months. Fish have little bones, so are more dangerous. A parent must take each flake of fish and massage it between his fingers until it is mushy (that is the best way to check for bones.
