What’s your feeding schedule for tube feeds?

What are some examples or ideas for J tube feeds? My body is having trouble increasing my tube feed amount so I could use any examples/ideas or hacks to help. I currently run my TPN 12 hours over night and then try to do 2-3 (working towards 4-5) 250mL food bags through my j tube with bolus feeding during the daytime but again, having trouble sometimes even getting my second bag in. Ideas?

How is the Kate’s Farm formula??

Recently I was discharged from the hospital (Children’s) and they called my enteral nutrition company, having formula and supplies sent to my home. Well, back tracking a bit, in the hospital I was on Pediasure Enteral 1.0 formula. Had a super hard time tolerating it, even at a medicine cup an hour rate. However since seeing my Gastroenterologist & Dietitan yesterday.. we found I’m not only not tolerating the formula but I’m also rapidy losing weight on it. So I’m now being switched! 🙏 My dietitan wants me on Kate Farm’s (adult) Peptide 1.5. This way I’m getting more of my energy needs in less volume. Also on the plus, it’s organic and plant-based😀

So, I’ve heard really great things about the Kate Farm’s company..wanted to know if the hype is real?

Does anyone know what these are for?

I was wondering if anyone knew what they plastic “buttons” were for next to my GJ Tube? My doctor never told me and I don’t see him for a few weeks so if anyone could help that would be great. Thank you!
