  • I hated the only formula daughter did not tolerate it at all gave her bad gas and belly aches. They now have a new formulation supposed to be better we will see Sep 29, 2018

  • my son didnt liked, he puke a lot with this one. Sep 26, 2018

  • I was bummed when I had to give up breastfeeding and had to switch to formula. My doctor recommended this one and my little one loves it. Sep 25, 2018

  • I tried to breastfeed but that didn't work so i started using similac pro advance and it seemed to make my daughter constipated. So i was told to try Gerber and i have not had any problems so far. Aug 31, 2018

  • This product made my baby very gassy. Jul 24, 2018

    This and the supplementing version were the only formulas my daughter could drink without getting extremely gassy. Jul 08, 2018

  • Worked well for my daughter. Very expensive though. Can usually find coupons for this formula. Jul 03, 2018

  • This is the only formula I have used for all 3 of my babies. Gerber is our go to brand for almost all of our baby essentials. The gentle seems to be perfect for their little tummies. Jul 01, 2018

  • this gave our baby extreme gas and upset stomach. Jun 27, 2018

    I had such a gassy baby and was having trouble with breast feeding supply. So after a few other formulas I stuck with this one and loved it, when she got older I switched to target brand of similac. Jun 21, 2018

  • My daughter loves this! It doesnt give her colic or as much gas. She also doesnt spit up. Its the closet thing to breast milk! Jun 18, 2018

  • We tried this with our baby, and while it was better than the one before, it still didn't quite work for him. But what we did like was that when it mixed, there were almost no bubbles in it. Jun 05, 2018

  • My son couldn’t digest the protein in this formula had to switch type of formula May 08, 2018

  • Worst formula for my kids. Upset their stomachs to no end May 05, 2018

  • We use this after trying numerous others! It has been the best so far! Mar 28, 2018

  • My daughter had a tough time eating in the hospital when she was born, when she was given this she ate. I love this formula. She’s still on it and is about to be 9 months! It never upsets her belly Mar 27, 2018

  • My baby didnt love this formula. I ended up taking her off after a couple days. Not great for formula fed babies. Too thin Mar 27, 2018

  • we switched to good start gentle after a few months on enfamil enspire. I preferred the enspire (except the price!) but my baby didn't care about switching and she had no problems! Mar 20, 2018

  • Seems thicker and all of my children were able to drink this with minimal spit up. They all had regular bowel movements and it set in their tummies well. Mar 07, 2018

  • The only formula that didn't constipate my little boy! Feb 05, 2018

    • Mary C.

    Lots of spitting up and diarrhea for my little ones. I threw it in the garbage. Feb 05, 2018

    Our ped. recommended this when we switched to formula and we never had any issues with it at all. Found it cheapest on Amazon Jan 22, 2018

  • A little more expensive than other brands, but worth it for us! Baby wouldn’t take other brands of formula. We tried this, and he seems to love it. It has less “formula smell” than other brands. Jan 14, 2018

    I'm a huge fan of Gerber Formula. I had 2 very sensitive babies who really struggled with lots of spit up and Gerber was the only brand they were able to tolerate. I'm planning to buy this for Baby 7! Jan 05, 2018

    Supplement with this and like it. Nov 28, 2017

  • My son loves this formula...it's easy to make. Nov 03, 2017

    • Lisa S.

    My favorite formula all around. I used this on 3 of my 4 kids. This formula was gentle on their stomachs. Didn't cause colic at all. Nov 01, 2017

    • Nikki T.

    Made reflux worst for us, and stomach pain. Oct 31, 2017

  • The only formula our little guy can tolerate. A lifesaver when the brand our ped gave us didn’t work well. If you write Gerber, they’ll often send coupons. And PSA: Target DOES have a generic online! Oct 21, 2017

  • Had to switch from Enfamil to this once we started receiving WIC. My daughter has been nothing but gassy since making the switch and she doesn't seem to be satisfied for as long. Sep 23, 2017

  • Used with all my kids, never had any problems with recalls or anything like that. Aug 17, 2017

  • Baby transitioned to this from BFing with no issues! After attempts with other formulas, I tried this, and he never had a problem. Easy on his tummy & he loves it! Jul 08, 2017

  • We have been using this since the day our baby came home from the hospital. Never any issues. May 10, 2017

  • My babys doctor recomended this formula because my baby had diarrhea for several days on the yellow enfamil formula. But she started being constipated on this formula so i switched her to gentlease. May 04, 2017

  • Started using this formula early on. The hospital recommended it. My little one has not had any issues with it and will not have any other formula. Apr 25, 2017

  • This formula helped our son with his terrible reflux. We love the brand and we love what it's done for both of our kids! Apr 24, 2017

  • I can tell the quality of this formula is good. Just didn't work out for my daughter, it caused her acid reflux to spike. I believe it was because it was partially hydrolyzed making it thinner. Apr 13, 2017
