This is a Guide for parents to follow alongside being taught how to NG/OG tube feed their baby. It can be downloaded onto a phone for parents to use as a recap or access later to reread the teaching staff have done with them. It has a sign off section for parents to identify when they feel confident with each stage. On a smart phone it may be able to be signed electronically, alternatively the last page alone could be printed out for signing and kept in the cotside notes for staff to see how much support parents would like at each stage. Parents need to be confident with the ‘Trouble Shooting’ section before progressing. This confidence document will travel with families if they move to another unit maintaining consistency, avoid duplication and repetition.
