Can I order a belt before Gtube surgery?
No, please wait till a week or so post surgery. The measurement needs to be taking around the whole tummy at the stoma site to ensure the best fit.
Do you have a tube fed child?
Yes! Our son Aidan is the inspiration behind Tubie Love. You can read more about our story here.
Do you do custom orders?
Yes, if you have a preferred print or fabric choice, I’m happy to see whether I can accommodate your selection. We also grow our product list through customer requests; if there is an item that could help you better manage tube feeding, let me know. I’m happy to discuss new designs so that other families in the same situation may be able to benefit too!
Do you make products for adults too?
Yes, our items are suitable for the whole feeding community!

Please be aware that your item may be held at customs for inspection, delaying the delivery time, and you may be charged a customs fee or import tax or similar.
Are you no longer shipping to North America?
Unfortunately, due to the impact of Covid-19 I’ve had to suspend sales to the USA and Canada as the cost of my liability insurance to this region is greater than current sales. I will be looking at resuming sales to North America in the future.
Where are you located?
We’re based on the sunny Kapiti Coast, north of Wellington in New Zealand, but we send our tubie pads and accessories all around the world.
