Avoiding Discomfort with Taping


Description of Your Hack

This is less of a hack, more of a trick we picked up. Our daughter has a G-tube, and we have to change it fairly regularly. Her skin was getting quite irritated from the tape that was being used to cover the tube on her stomach. We started folding the corners of the tape so that we wouldn’t have to pick at them to get them to peel.

About the Solution Hacker

Nothing too crazy here, just wanted to provide less discomfort for her! It also allows for a faster change of the
tube.
