I've been on the "Kangaroo" for a bit, for NG feedings. I found it to be great.

Hi There,
Since I'm new to this forum I just came across your post for the first time. I hope you obtained the new enterelite zevex infinity pump by now. I still have my Kangaroo ,but it came to a piont where it almost touched me, so I wen't ahead and made a financial payment agreement for 80.00 dollars per month for one year for the newest zevex enterelite infinity. It came to a time that I was financialy too overburdened , thus I turned to Chai Lifeline and they paid it up. I have to tell you. Life became alot easier w/ my new pump.It's worth all the headaches it takes to fight insurance. However maybe your service coordinator could & should do it for you.
Hatsluche!

my knowledge of tube feeds is limited to eating disorders, so i apologize if i'm totally off-base in my suggestions....but ENSURE (and BOOST, i think) is OU-D and lactose-free....not exactly what you're looking for, but close...and i know people who put it thru their tubes...again, i don't know if that's the kind of thing you're looking for, but....

Thank you, but that's not really what i'm looking for.
I do know of a few companies that make formula thats OU-D, but i prefer not to use it.
Also, those brands that you mentioned are not for this type of tube feeding.
Thank you anyway for your help.
