After Ostomy surgery, your kid needs support. Your smiles and the glow of your touch will help relax your child in this unfamiliar situation. Being patient, supportive and involved from the beginning will also help your child adjust to having an ostomy. Children are very accepting, and after a relatively short period of time, they will become calm with their ostomy. At HPFY, we are committed to improving the quality of life for individuals of all shapes and sizes, with ostomies

There is a good mix of one-piece and two-piece pouching systems including skin barriers, urinary pouches, drainable pouches and closed pouches. Varying styles in these systems include transparent, opaque, cut-to-fit, latex-free, odor-proof, adhesive barriers and much more. These products have been designed to fit a child’s soft contours allowing for maximum comfort and protection. Attractively designed pouches to keep the child in his/her comfort zone.

How to Select Ostomy Pouch?

Ostomy pouches are available in many different styles and sizes. Pediatric nurse can help choose the pouching system that suits your child best at different stages in your child’s life. There are one-piece and two-piece ostomy pouching systems.

 

One-piece system : In a one-piece ostomy system, the pouch and barrier are joined together as a single unit. The pouch collects stool or urine while the skin barrier is placed around the stoma to protect the skin and hold the bag securely. It is simple to use and easy to apply and remove.

Two-piece system : A two-piece ostomy system has a separate Ostomy pouch and Skin barrier. This arrangement provides convenience of changing the pouch while the skin barrier continues to remain attached to the skin.

How to Empty Ostomy Pouch?

  1. Empty the drainable pouch (or throw away a closed pouch) when it is 1/3 full.
  2. Hold the end of the pouch up before opening the closure.
  3. After emptying, wipe the end of the pouch with toilet tissue or a baby wipe.
  4. Close the pouch using a clamp or the integrated closure.
  5. If using a 2-piece pouch, you can replace the soiled pouch with a new one without replacing the barrier every time.
  6. Wash your hands and your child’s hands if they were involved in changing the pouch.

When to change Pediatric Ostomy Pouch?

Plan a regular time to change the pouch. Do not wait for it to leak. If your child feels burning, itching or is picking at the barrier, there may be a leak. Always check the skin around the stoma for skin irritation. The best time to change the pouch is when the stoma is less active like before your child eats or drinks in the morning

  6. Measure the stoma using the stoma measuring guide.
  7. Trace the measurement onto the back of the barrier.
  8. Cut the opening to match the pattern.
  9. Warm the barrier between your hands
  10. If the stoma becomes active, wait for the stoma to take a break and then proceed. Re-cleanse the skin if it becomes wet or soiled.

Frequently asked questions

Ostomy supplies for children are designed to best fit young ones. Major pediatric ostomy supplies include Hollister Pouchkins and ConvaTec Little Ones. These ostomy supplies are smaller in size and designed for newborns, infants and young children. Material used is soft plastic and comfortable fabric to suit the sensitive skin of babies. The ostomy pouch design is developed to best fit the contours of a young one’s body.

Pediatric ostomy bag replacement largely depends on how long the skin barrier stays connected to the child’s skin. The pediatric pouch needs to be changed in the following situations:

  • Leakage
  • In case the body develops itching and skin burns

The wear time of a pediatric ostomy pouch may vary from 1-2 days, sometimes going up to three days. Pouch replacement will depend upon stoma output and activities of the child.

Choosing the right type of clothing is important for a child with an ostomy. Avoid clothes with a waistband because it can obstruct the pouch from getting filled. Some parents prefer putting the ostomy bag inside the diaper while others may leave it outside, depending on the activity of the wearer.

The skin around the pediatric stoma can be cleaned with a soft cotton ball, washcloth or a moist paper towel. It is important to rinse the area thoroughly if using soap without oil or moisturizer. Baby wipes are not advised as they add moisture which can obstruct the pouch from sticking to the skin.

  • Leakage from the pouch can make the area around the skin red and weepy
  • Allergy to the skin barrier may result in skin burns, itch or sting
  • Moisture under the pouch can lead to skin infections
