    Does anyone have experience traveling to Disney with a child that has an nj feeding tube? If so how did it go?

    Hi Jamie,

     

    None of the Moms Panel has had the opportunity to travel with a child that has a NJ tube, however I have several suggestions for you to make your trip a fantastic one.  First, I am assuming that you will have a Kangaroo Backpack with a pump as most NJ tube feedings are continuous.  This would be the easiest to travel with, and if you do not have this, I would recommend consulting your physician for further assistance, as well as letting your doctor know your vacation plans.  You will need to bring the formula with you as well as the water that you will need to flush the tube after the feedings are completed.  Make sure that you have extra batteries for the pump or plug in source with you. 

     

    Thoughout all of the theme parks, there are Baby Care Centers that are easily located.  This is a quiet place to rock, change, or feed your child.  First Aid Stations are also available throughout the theme parks and water parks.  You will be able to ride most of the attractions that are age appropriate for your child as the backpack shouldn't interfere.  I would encourage you to check-in with Guest Relations at the theme parks if you have any other specific needs for your child.  They will be able to assist your further.  Please let me know if I can help you with any other questions you may have.  All of us at the Moms Panel want to wish you the most magical vacation, Jamie!
