When our baby had his g-tube placed in his tummy, it was an emotionally challenging time for our family.
Thankfully he was finally able to eat! However, a very real clothing issue remained. How would we dress him?
I was sad to think his cute blue and white striped outfit would never be worn again. How would I dress him in his snap bottom clothes and still be able to feed him? What about his pajamas? At 10 months old – shirts without snaps or two piece pj’s were almost impossible to find in his size!
With the serious health issues we had faced in his 10 months of life I couldn’t help being sad that this one, seemingly trivial part of our lives was affected as well. Couldn’t we have one normal thing going for us? After all, I was a mom, I wanted my baby to be dressed nicely. I didn’t want him to wear cut up clothing. Besides how could I cut holes in clothes I had just paid for?
Knowing I was not the only parent faced with this dilemma, I was determined to find a better way. There had to be a solution for this clothing issue.
We knew we needed a fast, cute, and more affordable solution than a new wardrobe. And so Tummy Tunnels was born.
