Gerber® Good Start® Soothe (HMO) Powder Infant Formula
This is seriously the BEST and a LIFE SAVER!!! When we first had my little girl I could not breast feed because I had an emergency c section and was on too much medicine. So the formula they started her on in the hospital was the gerber gentle. When we got home after about a week my little girl showed so many signs of colic. My sister recommended trying this formula. Seriously LIFE CHANGER. She started sleeping all night after about a week of being on this formula!
Every baby has certain formula they like and agree with for my son Liam it was both ,the formula for him must of been a good taste he ripped it out my hand the minute it was close.my only problem was the clumps. The design was great very handy I was excited to find out it had a scooper holder so I wasn't dealing with finding it in the powder.
This formula is very similar to Enfamil Gentleease. Both have worked out very well for both of my children. It’s a perfect blend that is not as intense as the Gerber Gentle and not going to constipate your child like the Soy formulas may do. It does have less lactose then the gentle but not 100% lactose free like the soy.
This is the formula my daughter is currently using and she does pretty well on it. I have to say I like that is a little cheaper than the similac. She spits up sometimes but she does have GERD so I guess that's expected. She does pretty well other than that. No belly aches and no gas. Love this product ❣
My little one had a hard time with other formulas until we tried this one and we haven't had a problem since she's been gaining weight which was essentially our goal with her being born early , she was getting the nutrition she needed and gaining the weight we wanted .
This is the ONLY formula our baby will have. WIC didn't contract back with Gerber in our state. We tried others out there, but it just didn't add up. I rave about gerber to everyone, and will never use another. We love the friendliness of the company and the product.
I like to keep a container of formula on hand that's specifically for fussiness, just in case our little one is having a rough day. I had heard great things about the probiotics version of this formula, so when I received a rebate check from Gerber for formula I decided to give this one a try. I really like that it has probiotics in is as our baby definitely needs them. He seems to like the formula, but it does seem a little thicker in consistency than his normal Similac formula. I have noticed that he does sometimes spit up a lot more after a feeding with this brand. He does (usually) calm down after a feeding, so it seems to work well. Also, noticed a bit of a constipation issue with this brand. Probably won't purchase again for him though, but would be open to trying it again for our next baby.

Hands down the best formula for babies with excessive gas and colic. I solely used Gerber Gentle with my daughter for her reflux and excessive puking and it was amazing so when my son was born and had some tummy issues we turned to Gerber again. Great brand!
Very gentle on my little ones belly. I also love that you can buy it anywhere. The only complaint I have is that I really dislike the scoop that is in the container. The handle is not long enough and the scoop is too deep so there is always air bubbles
Q & A
Constipation: Has anyone noticed if your baby gets constipated with this formula?
Has anyone else had a smooth transition from another formula to this brand? Of course nothing is better than breast milk however my daughter required 22cal.
My baby's been really fussy and I have been meaning to get this. but since formulas are so expensive nowadays I was Never sure if I should. how is it? and is it worth it?
Is this good for bellys that become upset easily?
Has anyone had problems with spit up while using this? I recently had to transition my son to this formula from Similac sensitive. He's never had spit up problems before but now he's spitting up large amounts several times a day.
