QuinnEssentials was inspired by our daughter, Quinn, who has required enteral nutrition since she was born. Our family was completely new to the world of tube feeding and struggled to find the support, resources, and references to help us adjust to our new way of life. Initially her tube feeds were accomplished with a nasogastric tube (NG-tube), and now she uses a gastrostomy tube (G-tube). After researching on our own, we were able to find many helpful resources that we wish we had from the start. As we became more educated, we developed a kit of essential items that Quinn needed. This kit has been so helpful that our goal is to provide a QuinnEssential kit to every new “tubie” and their family.
We created this organization to support pediatric families making the transition to tube feeding with the goal of sharing our knowledge to make your journey as smooth as possible.
