Product Description

Size: 23.2 Ounce

From the Manufacturer

GERBER GOOD START Gentle Powder, 23.2 Ounce Product Shot

Made with key nutrients found in breastmilk to support healthy growth and development.
View larger.

GERBER Product Shot

DHA and ARA for brain and eye development. View larger.

GERBER GOOD START Gentle Powder is made with key nutrients found in breastmilk to provide complete nutrition for your growing baby. This formula has the iron that babies need and contains easy-to-digest proteins. Fatty acids DHA and ARA promote healthy brain and eye development, and prebiotics support digestive health. GERBER GOOD START Gentle Powder is suitable for feeding babies from birth up to 12 months.

COMFORT PROTEINS Are Easy on Your Baby's Tummy

Only GERBER GOOD START infant formulas start with 100 percent whey protein, the highest-quality protein available in infant formula. These proteins are partially broken down into smaller pieces and are easy for your baby to digest.

May Provide Protective Benefits

GOOD START Gentle Formula is made with 100 percent whey proteins that are partially hydrolyzed.

For healthy infants who are not exclusively breastfed and who have a family history of allergy, feeding 100 percent whey-protein partially hydrolyzed infant formula from birth up to 4 months of age instead of a formula containing intact cow's milk proteins may reduce the risk of developing atopic dermatitis during the first year of life. The FDA has concluded that the relationship between 100 percent whey-protein partially hydrolyzed infant formulas and the reduced risk of atopic dermatitis is uncertain, because there is little scientific evidence for the relationship.

Partially hydrolyzed formulas should not be fed to infants who are allergic to milk or infants with existing milk allergy symptoms. If you suspect your baby is already allergic to milk, or if your baby is on a special formula for the treatment of allergy, your baby's care and feeding choices should be under a doctor's supervision.

DHA and ARA for Healthy Brain and Eyes

GOOD START Gentle Powder includes DHA and ARA, two fatty acids, or lipids, that are found naturally in breastmilk and which support healthy development of brain and eye tissues. This formula also has a blend of antioxidant vitamins A, C, and E as well as zinc to support a strong immune system.

Prebiotic Fiber for Digestive Health

This formula includes prebiotic Galactooligosaccharides (GOS). This prebiotic fiber is naturally occurring in breastmilk and can help support a baby's digestive health.

Convenient Powder--Just Add Water

This powder comes in an EasyScoop plastic container that makes it easy to mix exactly the amount you need with no mess or waste. Simply add water according to the package directions, and you're ready to feed.

From Younger Formula to Older Baby and Toddler Formula

GOOD START Gentle Powder provides the nutrients babies need from birth to 12 months. The AAP recommends avoiding cow's milk as a beverage until your baby is at least one year old. Cow's milk doesn't have the proper balance of nutrients -- such as the level of iron -- your baby needs for growth and development. After one year, older baby and toddler formulas are a nutritious choice for babies who may not be eating a balanced diet. These formulas as designed to provide extra nutrition assurance for babies nine to 24 months old.

We tried several formulas. At first we went with Similac Sensitive, which worked well for our baby's gassy tummy. With all the coupons for Similace we found it cheaper but after talking with my pediatrician we finally decided to look at the ingredients on the back of the container. Both Similac and Enfamil list corn syrup as their number one ingredient. Only Gerber Goodstart has real ingredients and it is the only formula I will trust for my little one.

Size Name: 23.2 Ounce
I REALLY wanted my baby on similac. I THOUGHT that was the best formula after reading some reviews and ingredient searches. Also, Similac was the formula I used as a baby, and its been around what seems forever.... But my baby had a different opinion on that.
While she LOVED the taste of similac, it just didn't seem to agree with her stomach. It left her with watery bowel movements that immediately absorbed up into her diapers. Its like it had NO consistency. This worried me. Then her reflux started to worsen, and her spit up was constant.
After trying so many formulas: similac Advance, similac sensitive, Alimentum (P.U.) Gerber soothe, we finally used the orange gerber gentle. It took her some time to get use to the taste. I think Gerber is mild, and doesn't taste or smell bad, but the similac was definitely sweeter tasting. So we used half similac and gerber, and gradually decreased the similac more and more. Now there is no problem.
We didn't stay on the Gerber purple soothe because she would only have a bowel movement every 3-4 days on it, and when she did go, it was a huge amount of poo!
She has regular normal bowel movements. Way less spit up. Reflux is almost non existent. She is a happy baby on her Gerber. My second child was on Gerber Gentle because WIC paid for it, and she never had any issues on it either. Now my third is on it and doing great. I love that it doesn't have a bad smell, and it doesn't taste that bad. Whenever I have forgotten a bottle ( like the ones kicked under the couch) when I go to clean it, the smell is still pretty mild compared to what other formulas smell like if you forget about them! I love that Whey is the protein instead of Casein, which I think may have just been a little too hard on my little one's tummy.

This is not an Amazon verified review, we bought ours at Target. Some things can't wait, even Amazon's speedy delivery can't be fast enough for baby crying hysterically.

I was a big skeptic! I used to think all these companies are the same aren't they? They use virtually the same ingredients, maybe they'll change it a little and then call it a different name, just like soda pop companies. How many colas are out there? And don't they all virtually taste the same?

But I guess babies are so sensitive, that even the slightest change in ingredients can change the quality of life for your baby and yourselves, the parents. Our baby left the hospital being used to enfamil premium newborn ready to use. So we continued with the ready to use, but he got fussier as the weeks went by. We then switched to the powder version cause the ready to use was too expensive, of course he was still fussy, and then we started to experience frantic feeding. Then our doctor suggested enfamil gentlease. It did not help, and the frantic feeding seem to have gotten worse. The spit ups were painful and the baby would get sticky cause gentlease is very sticky, probably due to the corn syrup ingredient? My baby would always wake up crying and seemingly in pain. After reading the reviews here, but understanding that all babies are different, I went ahead and tried Gerber Good Start Gentle with low expectations. The first time we gave it to him was around 11pm at night. The feeding went well, but I was being cautiously optimistic, so I didn't put much clout in it. Then something else happened, he slept till 4am in the morning! Our baby is 6 weeks old and sleeps at most 3 hours. During these 5 hours, there was the usually toss, turn, squirm, grunt, etc.

Size Name: 23.2 Ounce Verified Purchase
At first my wife and I hated the idea of using baby formula. They smell bad (fishy) and taste bad too (also a bit fishy eww). We didn't want to give our baby daughter anything that we wouldn't want to eat ourselves. I'm sorry but liquified fish is not my idea of comfort food.

However, my wife's milk production wasn't keeping up with our growing baby and it was becoming more difficult. My wife was dragging her breast pump to work, getting up in the middle of the night to pump, etc.

We tried several other formulas (she really didn't like enfamil or similac) but finally settled on Gerber Good Start Gentle. Initally we mixed it with real breastmilk and after a few weeks she was gobbling it up! Here we are a few months later. We've completely phased out breastmilk and she still looks forward to her bottles! With a few good burps she never has an upset tummy.

We look back now and laugh at all the stressing we did over introducing formula. We appreciate the flexibility of having food for her at all times and not fretting over milk production. Our baby is happier and healthier than ever. We're official Gerber fans!

So, you first time parents out there, relax and breathe. Baby formula is not going to smell great, or taste great, but your baby will like it. I've read in several places now that baby taste buds are largely undeveloped in infancy and they are not nearly as discriminating as our developed palates are. They just want their tummy full and at the end of the day we just want them to get well balanced, proper nutrients. Good Luck!
