I bought this brand because I do not seem to be able to produce enough breast milk for twins. I have tried other brands which seemed to give them bad belly aches. I love the premixed bottles, however I wish they came in 4oz size. The 3oz bottles were probably created for late night feedings so I guess they are perfect for that purpose.

Excellent for Supplementing!
I am a fully breastfeeding mother but sometimes I struggle to pump enough when I need to be away from my baby. I've tried other brands of formula to supplement but we ended up taking our baby to the hospital because he had a bad reaction to two different brands of formula and was projectile vomiting. I was hesitant to try Gerber Good Start formula so I gave my baby a small amount just to see how he would do and he loved it! He ate it with no issues and even though I don't supplement often this is my new go-to formula when I need to supplement.
*I received a free sample of this formula from PINCHme in exchange for my honest opinion.
My sons favorite formula
LOVE GERBER PRODUCTS!! BEST FORMULA!
I'm very happy with Gerber formula products. Received a sample size from pinch me. Ever since then this is the only one I purchase Let me tell you more about my baby and our relationship to this brand. Once my baby was born I was told a few days after that I needed to supplement with formula.After doing my research Gerber has what no other formula does has been found to improve brain development better than any other other formulas.
This formula was recommended to me by a friend who uses it, since her little one had no issues with it. I tried the other two "big name" competitor formulas and they left my gal with a hard belly and backed her up really bad - she would cry out of discomfort after every feeding. :( Since switching to the Good Start, she isn't backed up or distended or anything of that sort. She still spits up a little, because that's what babies do, but considerably less than with the old formulas. The price is very reasonable, too, since the cans are a little larger than that of the other brands. I'm very pleased with how well she responds to this formula and will continue to buy it for her until she no longer needs it.
Doesnt bother my babys tummy.
My babe has been breastfeeding since birth and she is now 4 months. We just started formula feeding not long ago and before we found this she was on similac pure bliss and she was extremely fussy and wasnt having bowel movements normally and her bowel movements were gray. The first night on this she had one big bm although it was grayish in color and for the next few it was slightly gray but now that she is used to it she is having a bm every day a more dark green color and normally. I'm so happy I found this!! I was afraid all formula was going to bother her stomach but this is gentle and easy for her to digest. I wanted to keep breastfeeding but I couldn't and this seems like it's the next best.
High quality- reasonable In price
We have used this formula since birth for our daughter and on our last visit to our wholesale shopping club they were sold out and I had to go with a competitor in "gentlease" - which I might add is more expensive and pushed regularly at my pediatrician but I prefer gerber because it is non- gmo- this competitions formula first ingredient is CORN SYRUP - as is the other leading competitor in "sensitive " was happy to see gerbers first ingredient is whey protein- I'd rather pay full price for Gerber any day than overinflated prices for sugar filled low quality garbage
Great value and great product
I received the Stage 1 Gerber Good Start Gentle Powder Infant Formula for free ffom PINCHme to try. I breastfed my daughter until she was 4 months old and when i did the switch to formula, this is the one i used! I was nervous about how she would take it, but she took to it very quickly. I was very happy it didnt upset her tummy! Did i mention the price is very affordable?! If youre a mom looking to make the switch, this is the formula for you and baby!!
Great formula, Horrible scooper!
I bought this new can design just a week ago and the scooper is ridiculously wide. I can't make my son a single bottle without formula getting all over my counter. I lose about half a scoop just trying to get the scooper in my sons bottle. My son uses Dr.brown bottles and the opening of that particular bottle is very slim and narrow. The formula scooper is just way too fat.
