Button pads can help absorb leakage from the stoma and tube and help to reduce irritation and inflammation around and under the tube. Many parents and doctors feel that they help reduce and prevent granulation tissue. And, they are fun when so little about tube feeding is.
The number of makers in this area have exploded and they come in a wide variety of closures (snap, velcro, button, or none), shapes, and materials. Many makers are tube feeders or parents/caregivers of tube feeders. Prices and fabrics vary. We recommend asking about possible wait times as some makers produce products to order.
You can find these pads on Etsy, Facebook, shops that cater to disabilities and adaptive lines, and similar places.
