Continuous Feeding Hang Time for Powdered Formula

  1. What is your hang time for continuous feedings using posdered formula?

    The A.S.P.E.N. Enteral Nutrition Practice recommends 4 hours but the WHO recommends 2 hours.

    Thanks

    We hang four hours- however, many, MANY of my homecare families hang 12 hours (without any problem) for overnight feeds.

    Ours is 4 hours also, but when they go home it is 8 hours.
