Great collection of articles on diapers. Diapers are almost a medical technology.

CLASSIC READ OF THE MONTH
Pentiuk S et al. Pureed by Gastrostomy Tube Diet Improves Gagging and Retching in Children with Fundoplication. J Parenteral and Enteral Nutrition 2011 May; 375-379. PMID: 21527599.
Pureed diets are becoming in vogue now with our population; this is a good article to read over as there is not much literature on this topic. This case series follows patients with gtube and fundoplication started on blenderized diets. The results are almost more important for what did not happen- no worsening of retching, no worsening of oral feeding aversion, and no basic blood work abnormalities.
