Long time trusted name
I acknowledge & they have acknowledged a mistake was made & we are both moving on. I continue to use this product & my 5 month old is very happy on it. 🙂
My little one was even more fussy and spit up a lot!
Immediately we noticed our newborn getting bad bouts of fussiness after feedings. It was horrible! He had normal bowel movements but the thin, frequent spit up was back. With such a huge container, we thought we would have to wait it out and add it to another formula until it was out. Thank god Costco has a really good return policy, we gave it almost a week and that container was returned right back to the store and we got Costco’s formula + gas drops in his bottles and have had no problems.
I didn’t like Gentlease for the spit up issues and he feeds more frequently on such a thin formula, but I’d much prefer Gentlease over this stuff.
Works for my sons fussiness!
Thank god for this formula!
After having breastfeeding problems with my little guy right from the start, we started supplementing with formula. I used the free samples of Enfamil Newborn that I had received. It worked for a couple weeks until I noticed a real problem with fussiness and gas. He was crying most of the time while up and I couldn’t put him down, always wanted to be rocked. So I switched to the GentleEase, which seemed to make no difference other than he was now gassy in his sleep. Next…tryed Gerber Good Start…even worse. He started having Colic screaming fits, so back to the Enfamil I went, and along came constipation! Started getting balls of poop!
Note: Baby is 6 weeks old. No spitting up, just extreme fussiness and gassy symptoms that the gas drops or gripe water had no effect on. I changed bottles several times also, finally found the drop-in system worked the best. Irritable Baby = Cranky Mommy
Dr. recommended Similac Sensitive for lactose problems and gave me some samples. I have no history in my family of lactose intolerance, but I have a sensitive tummy myself. I noticed a significant change in his behavior after about 3 bottles. He is now finishing his bottles, feeling full and happy in between. I can finally put him in his bouncy chair or lay him down to play with out immediate screaming fits. And now come the smiles 🙂 Poor guy was just really upset cuz his tummy was upset.
The ready made formula seems a little thicker and smells different, and so does the concentrated stuff. This powder is lighter in color and texture when mixed. Doesn’t seem to matter to my little guy though. Dissolves better than other powders I have used, less clumps.
The only reason this didn’t get 5 stars…The Powder makes a VERY FOAMY mixture. Make the entire days worth of formula so the bubbles have a chance to settle. My first bottle made him very gassy still…defeats the purpose right?
Hint: Mix with warm water to minimize foam/bubbles…stir with a fork or spoon instead of shaking to mix. Or make a whole batch and let it sit, gently swirl to mix up before making a bottle. If immediate bottle is needed, add 1-2 DROPS of Mycalon (or similar) gas drops and it takes the bubbles out instantly. (I’m not a dr. so I don’t recommend this to babies with health problems and such).
So far, Target has been the cheapest price I have found for this product. 🙂
This formula was the magic key!
less bowel movement
However, DONT BE DUMB, WALMART SELLS THESE FOR 21 bucks for these same 1.45 lb containers. you can even get them direct from Similac for less than these ripoffs. Hell I could buy from Walmart and resell at 30 a shot and make money too I guess…
