STAGE 1 | BIRTH - 12 MONTHS

WARNING: Your baby’s health depends on carefully following the preparation, use, and storage instructions below. Failure to follow these instructions could result in severe harm.

Talk to (OR consult) your baby’s doctor about the appropriate formula for your baby. Powdered infant formulas are not sterile and should not be fed to premature infants or infants who might have immune problems unless directed and supervised by your baby’s doctor.

Always wash your hands and utensils before preparing formula.

Sterilization or boiling of tap or bottled water and sterilization of utensils is recommended. Your doctor will advise if it is not required. If boiling water, bring to a rolling boil for 1 minute and allow to cool to room temperature before preparing formula.

STEP 1

Pour desired amount of water into a clean, empty bottle before adding any formula. Replace cap on water if using bottled water.

STEP 2

Add 1 unpacked level scoop (8.7g) of powder for each 2 fl oz water. (Only use enclosed scoop.)

STEP 3

Cap bottle; SHAKE WELL. Feed baby immediately.

Once feeding begins, use contents within 1 hour or discard.

NOTE: Only if necessary, refrigerate freshly prepared bottle and use contents within 24 hours. Refrigerator temperatures should be maintained between 35-40°F (2-4°C).

WARNINGS: Do not use microwave to warm formula. Serious burns may result.

STORAGE: Tightly cover open container and use within 1 month. Store opened and unopened containers in a cool, dry place. Avoid extreme storage conditions.

Warming formula above, or using water warmer than 100°F (38°C), will compromise the probiotic cultures.

Gerber® Good Start® Gentle for Supplementing | Powder Formula Stage 1 is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 75.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from BEST FORMULA EVER!!!!!! Ive tried similac advanced, similac sensitive, and enfamil nothing beats this Gerber product, my son simply loved it!!!! it is the only formula that sat well enough in his tummy not to cause severe constipation, or horrible projectile like vomiting, the only downside is that my W.I.C will not cover it even with a doctor prescription (due to my sons tummy sensitivity), so Ive had to make the switch to its slightly lesser counterpart Gerber gentle its almost as good, but not quite up to par. Hands down this 1 is the Best* So hopefully after reading this sum amazing person will go out of their way to make this formula readily available from W.I.C :) Fingers-crossed!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Only Formula I Use I was sad when I had to start supplementing my breast milk, but my baby was just demanding more than I was putting out. My pediatrician recommended I use Gerber Good Start Gentle Supplementing. I heard other mom's say "watch out for the formula poops" but I have never had a bad experience. As a matter of fact I did not see any difference in her breast milk diapers compared to her formula diapers. I still primarily give my daughter breast milk but this formula has been a wonderful stress reliever knowing I can still feed her even if the milk is not coming from me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for Breastfeeding Moms This product hit the market the year my 2nd baby was born. My first baby I breastfed for a year, and occasionally supplemented with Gerber Good Start formula. He would make a bad face, but drank it when needed with no problems. With the Gerber Good Start Gentle for Supplementing, my baby takes it as if it were a bottle of breastmilk. I have tasted both this formula as well as my breastmilk (just so I knew what my baby was in for), and both tasted sweet. No bad faces. And a happy baby! I always like to have a back up plan in case I can't get to my baby in time for a feeding or if I fall short pumping for daycare. Awesome product!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great formula but.... Due to medical reasons, I had to switch to formula for 2wks. My baby took to this formula better than any other! We have since resumed breastfeeding but use this every so often. Great formula but I wish Gerber would make individual packets or ready to use bottles for the supplementing. Since we do not use it on a regular basis, we tend to have to throw away a lot. We buy the smallest canister but we still do not go through it all with in the 30 days. I hate to waste so much. Gerber, please make smaller portions for supplementing :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy On Baby's System I am not able to produce enough milk to breastfeed alone. I received some free sample cans of this formula so I started using it with my son at 3 days of age. He had no problems and loved it. I thought he was just an easy baby until I tried changing to Similac Advanced Supplemental. BIG MISTAKE! He was extremely gassy, constipated, and projectile spit up every time he ate. And that was with me giving him half Gerber and half Similac so that I could ease him into the new formula. After 2 days I returned the Similac and switched back to Gerber. It took him a day but he's completely back to his normal happy self now. Thanks for making such a quality product Gerber. We appreciate it! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from best formula This is the only formula my daughter liked. I've tried 4 other brands of formula but she only will drink gerber gentle for supplementing. I was only breastfeeding up till 6 months now and slowly weaning her on to a bottle and she loves it. I also have a question about this formula.. When I completely stop breastfeeding can I only feed her this formula (gentle for supplementing) or do I have to change?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Thank you!! I got lots of samples of different formulas to try when I had my son. I exclusively breastfed but did try some supplementing. My son would not take any other formula but Good Start Gentle for Supplementing. He now has drank a total of 5 bottles. Which is amazing!! I had to supplement because I'm not producing as much milk as I was before we introduced solid foods to him. Sometimes he needs more and this formula is great. I see no difference in his poop, no constipation, or anything. I'm one relieved and happy mommy!! I do wish that WIC covered this formula though. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best for my baby! I tried other formula brands for my newborn, this one was the best formula for his tummy, because I breastfeed. it works out great when I supplement. I would recommend this formula to moms who breastfeed and supplement. I am really happy with the results.
