How do I care for my button pads?
Please ensure all items are washed before using and then after each use.
Items are machine washable; it is recommended to use a delicates bag when washing. Using detergents with optical brighteners may cause your items to discolour. Items should preferably be air dried. Machine drying is possible, though it may lead to the item losing shape or deteriorating faster than normal.

What is a button pad used for?
Button pads are designed to take the place of hospital gauze and are a fun, stylish and cost-effective way to help with tube feeding. The pads are used to absorb any leakage from the site and to keep the site clean and dry. They are also effective at helping reduce granulated tissue (extra body tissue that the body produces to heal over the open site) and to reduce the movement of the feeding tube. Because they are machine washable and are reusable, they help reduce with ongoing costs.
What size button pad is best for me?
When it comes to the size of the button pad you need, this can be very individual decision. Generally, the regular size are best for smaller children and those who do not leak a lot from your stoma site. The regular size is also a great option for those who wish to wear something more discreet. The Large size is a fantastic option if you have a lot of leakage and need the extra absorbency. They are also great if you prefer a thicker button pad or you would like a large design pattern on the pads.
Ultimately the decision if personal preference.
When should I use my button pads?
It is recommended to wait up to 6 weeks before using anything reusable around a newly formed stoma site.
How do I measure for the G Tube Belts?
The best way to measure for a belt is to measure around the whole tummy at the stoma site. Please do not add any extra length as we allow for growth when they are made.

Why did you not follow up my order?
As we are all in the world of special needs, our lives can become very hectic in the blink of an eye such as unexpected hospital admissions or medical changes. For this reason, we understand that situations can change quite rapidly. We choose not to follow up with customers on orders, unless necessary, as we do not wish to cause anymore stress to peoples lives if it can be avoided. We apply this same principal when we also send out invoices, as we do not know if people’s circumstances have changed. If you are unsure if your order has been paid for by an NDIS Planner, please feel free to contact us or your Planner directly.
