The bag is cute but unfortunately it would not close right with our enteralite infinity pump. The zipper will leave the bag to hang. Ive tried contacting the owner but she hasn't responded after I sent her pictures of how the bag didn't work for us. Besides that the bag did take some time to arrive. I ordered it the first week of September and still having issues with this purchase. Very disappointed!

Additional policies and FAQs
I highly recommend that when you receive your FeedieFriends you wash them before their first use. Wash them after each use, you may use a non-chlorine bleach to help clean any of those unwanted stains after you use them. For sanitary reasons, these pads are to be washed after each use-you don't want to reuse crusty buttons :)

What size should I order?
Each Feediefriend is either 2, 2.5 or 3 inches (you choose at checkout) around to securely cover and snugly protect.

I recommend the 3 inch child size for children over 4 or if you prefer a wider coverage area. The todder 2.5 inch size is great for 6 months and up, and the preemie/newborn 2 inch size is good if you have a preemie or newborn, please know they will outgrow this size very quickly.
Please contact me if you are not sure what size to get or need additional help.

What backing fabric should I choose?
Which back fabric to choose depends largely on your absorbency needs and budget. Listed below are some facts about each fabric option.
Flannel:
• Most economical option
• Thinnest backing option
• Soft flannel is made of 100% cotton
• Best choice for those on a budget
• Good choice for those who need very limited absorbency
Minky:
• Softer than flannel
• Minky is made of 100% Polyester
• Good choice for those who need a bit more absorbency and softness than flannel
• Thicker backing than flannel
Organic Bamboo Velour (OBV):
• Softest choice available
• Naturally Hypo-allergic, less allergic reactions for sensitive skins
• Bamboo is naturally anti-microbial, which resists bacteria growth on the pad and the skin
• OBV is naturally anti-fungal
• Bamboo fabric is naturally odor resistant, which means less pad stink
• Bamboo is highly absorbent and absorbs up to 3 times its own weight in leakage!
• Bamboo reduces static, sitting very well next to your skin without clinging to it.
• Bamboo is a sustainable plant that is fast to grow, at up to 3 feet per day! It also requires no pesticides or fertilizers to grow, so it helps our planet as well


What are FeedieFlaps?
FeedieFlaps are the best way to keep your extension from coming unlocked, either accidentally or by little prying hands which not only makes a mess, but also wastes precious nutrients and can cause embarrassing stains!

Simply snap the FeedieFlap around your G-Tube like normal, attach any extensions, then snap the FeedieFlap down, securing the line from unlocking and making a huge mess!

FeedieFlaps are 3 inches around for a great fit around your G, J or C tubes.
If you have a combo G/J like the AMT G Jet button, these will not fit. Please contact me to let me know you have a combo button so I can ensure proper fit.

What are FeedieLocks?
Keep your tubie fed, your furniture and clothes clean with FeedieLocks! FeedieLocks help prevent expensive, messy formula spills at home and on the go by wrapping around the bag line and snapping securely to ensure it stays connected.
FeedieLocks proprietary design provides added security while feeding by keeping the extension and bag line together.
Each FeedieLock is handmade with care to last and aim to provide peace of mind from messy, expensive and embarrassing spills and stains.
FeedieLocks are really easy to care for! Simply toss them in your FeedieWash bag with your G-Tube covers!

What are FeedieBags Wet and Dry Bags?
Keep all of your wet FeedieFriends pads in one place and away from other items while out and about with wet/dry bag combos (also available individually)
Store your Feediefriends in style no matter where you go with this wet/dry bag combo pack. This pack includes 2 bags that snap together, so you can use them together or separately for a versatile bag set.

The wet/dry bag combo includes one waterproof lined wet bag to hold used tube covers or supplies, and one dry bag to hold new Feediefriends ready to use!

These bags measure 7x7 inches, and each bag can hold over 30 covers!
Be discrete and fashionable with these fun wet/dry bags! Perfect for:
• School/Daycare
• Daytrips or longer-each bag holds at least 30 covers!
• Purse/Car/Plane, anytime you travel
• Friends house/Sleepovers

What are FeedieWash bags?

Combat the G-tube cover monster and keep all your pads together with Feediewash bags! Simply place used pads in the wash bag until wash day, and then just toss the whole bag (zipped close, of course!) in the washer. These bags allows the water and soap to move freely around your pads, ensuring a thorough cleaning without allowing the G-Tube cover monster to sneak any. The FeedieWash bag also saves your back from having to gather all the tiny pads from the depths of the washer, and keeps them all together for easy washing and drying.

How do I wash my FeedieFriends products?

It’s easy! Simply toss your FeedieFriends products (preferably unsnapped) in our FeedieWash bag, zip the bag closed, and toss in your washer. Any type of detergent should be fine, but avoid bleaching as the covers may fade and the natural materials in the bamboo fabric will break down faster with bleach. It’s also wise to avoid fabric softener as it will coat the covers and make them less absorbent.
After washing, simply toss the whole bag into the dryer and dry as normal, or lay the bag down in a sunny, dry place to air dry. Obviously, hand washing and air drying is the gentlest way to clean your covers, however the quality and durability of these covers ensure that they will be long lasting even with machine washing and drying. With Feediefriends, some curling after washing is common. You can gently iron them down, avoiding the plastic snaps, or use them as is, no ironing necessary. Curling can be minimized by laying flat to dry.

Oh No! I lost a snap or a thread came undone!
Don’t worry! Please contact me at feediefriends [!at] gmail.com and we can work out a solution. If you have cared for your FeedieFriends properly this should not happen and I would love to make it right.

My order came and I bought the wrong size/backing or I’ve changed my mind!
Unfortunately due to the nature of this product, no returns or exchanges are accepted. Please choose your size and backing carefully-we offer photos of both size and backing as examples, and I am always happy to discuss your options if you have any questions!
