We describe three male neonates where infant feeding tube (IFT) passed 18–20 cm in the upper esophageal pouch. A blunt-tipped red rubber catheter confirmed esophageal atresia (EA) with long upper pouch in all three cases.

Importance of using red rubber catheter at the pediatric practice instead of IFT is stressed.
