|The Fresh Squeeze Station by Infantino|
I have received the Fresh Squeezed Squeeze Station from Infantino to facilitate my review. I will give a bit of background on my son because he is not a "typical" 4 year old. My son was born nine weeks premature. He spent the first six months of life in the hospital. He has had two open heart surgeries, two abdominal surgeries and suffered a stroke at ten weeks old. He has had some sort of feeding tube since birth. He receives all of his nutrition via his feeding tube. He has an intolerance to lactose and a severe gluten allergy. Because of this his food has to be specially prepared.
|He was about a week old here. His feeding tube is in his mouth (OG Tube)|
|He is about 3 months old here. He has a NG tube here (white).|
His feeding tube now. It is a Button Feeding tube.
Note food around plunger.
It was a bit time consuming for me so I tried it with our syringes. It went much faster and it I was able to know exactly how much was in each pouch. As I said volume is VERY important in our world.
This was prunes with rice cereal, honey, coconut milk and coconut manna. It stored and froze wonderfully. Actually everything I have made has done very well except spinach. The liquid would come out of the pouch but all the spinach stayed behind!!
All in all the concept is great but a few minor changes could make it better.
- Graduation marks on the filling tubes.
- A more complete seal on the plunger system.
- Bigger pouches (6 ounce and 8 ounce)
Feeding on the go!
