Feeding your child after oesophageal atresia and/or tracheo-oesophageal fistula repair

Oesophageal atresia (OA) and tracheo-oesophageal fistula (TOF) are both congenital (present at birth) problems. They can develop together or separately and are usually diagnosed soon after birth (or occasionally during a prenatal scan). Both conditions require repair with an operation under general anaesthetic lasting two to three hours.

Once the repair has taken place, it can take some time for your child to completely recover. This page from Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH) explains how best to feed your child following the repair operation and how to safely wean them onto solid foods around two years later. Suggestions contained in this information sheet are based on our extensive experience of looking after children with OA/TOF and promote safe feeding practices.
