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. We have shared more information when makers have provided it. We also provide the closure type and the shape since parents often have preferences. 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.

Products are listed in alphabetical order.
