Gerber Good Start??

Postby texasgirl8911 » Thu Feb 21, 2013 9:07 am

Anyone use any of the Gerber Soothe or Gentle.
Also, Is there a site where I can sell or give all the similac formula away? (If this new formula works).

I was using Similac Advance with the playtex drop in bottles. Then LO wasn't doing good the formula and the bottles were not working (having trouble with the bags). I have a LOT of Advanced 20 cans & 6 big plastic cans. So I switched to Similac Sentsitive and went to the Dr Brown bottles. He loves the bottles but was having bad gas pain on the sentsitive. (Have 6 cans). I got all the cans free from my baby showers,friends and the mail.
Someone gave me Gerber Good Start 1can Soothe & 3cans Gentle.

I started using the Soothe as its for excessive fussines,Colic and Crying.
I also have heard that "Colic Calm" works but haven't tried it.

I use the Similac Sensitive with DD and have used the Advanced and Alimentum with DS. It is pricey to ship formula because of its weight. What we did when we had excess formula that we couldn't use was donate it to a local women's and children's shelter. I think some food banks take it too.

Be careful with some of the specialized formula. I've noticed some of them put rice in the formula which I personally don't like. Just be careful and read the ingredients. I hope the new formula works for you.

I have used the good start with all 3 of my little ones-
The pediatrician gave it to me, and it was very gentle and always stayed down, so I never switched-
they all did beautifully on it. ( 10, 8, 3 weeks)
Now I use it to supplement for my 3 week old-
they have a formula specifically for breastfeeding supplementation-
Hope that helps!
