Something to ask an RD. it seems like it would be fine, but I'd proceed with caution. If the RD is fat phobic and you want to try anyway, go VERY slowly.
I have Noonan's syndrome and some individuals with NS have tubes. It seems to me that they do give these people coconut oil, or at least MCT oil quite successfully. One of the issues with NS is lymphedema and avoiding PUFA's in favor of MCTs helps--and I've heard of administering via tube feelings.
