Two children were weaned from long-term tube feeding after liver transplant because of Alagille syndrome. The children were successfully weaned, one in seven days and the other in 13 days, using our standard and highly specialized intensive treatment protocol. Normal feeding behavior and stabilization of body weight were established. Children fed by long-term enteral tubes can be weaned from enteral feeding even after a long period of treatment. The return to age-appropriate self-feeding should be introduced as early as possible. Our weaning program time is brief and effective and can be recommended generally to improve quality of life and withhold unintended side-effects of enteral nutrition.
