I have tried almost every formula on the market. Finally got to this one and it worked for 2 months for my baby. Out of nowhere, he suddenly will NOT eat this anymore. He absolutely hates it. Not sure if I got a bad batch or something? But he screams bloody murder now. Gave him a different brand and he is fine.
Great supplement for LO - wish I could purchase smaller amounts!

We've been using this formula as needed between nursing for five months now and have had a positive experience. Our LO has a 5oz bottle daily or every other to give me a break from nursing. We do have to burp a bit more after a bottle vs nursing as he's more likely to spit up but we haven't had any issues with gas or upset tummy. I do wish we could purchase smaller amounts and to-go portions. At times we've had to throw out containers as it expires within 30 days, I hate to waste!
My 2 month old is breastfed and was demanding more than I was producing so I tired to introduce her to this formula. She took 2 OZ and vomited pretty bad and it seemed like she was cramping as well. It just didnt work for us

We started using this when our little guy was eating more than momma was producing. Have not had any issues with switching between this and breastmilk. My only wish for this was that it was available in the packets for on the go. Would make it less wasteful than buying a whole tub that may or may not be used before the product starts to draw moisture and get hard.
It always amazes me how different each baby is. We tried numerous formulas and baby always had horrible gas and would be inconsolable. We started this one and within a week of adjustment she now has no pain! She doesn't wake up screaming in the middle of the night until she passes gas anymore. She still spits up, but she has done that with everything I have ever fed her, breast milk included. She is a happier spitter now atleast!
I started baby on breast milk, however, my supply started decreasing so I decided to introduce formula to supplement the difference that baby needs for each feeding. We tried a few 4-pack of the ready for feed which seemed to be working fine but can be expensive so we decided to switch over to powder. Within a week of switching over to powder she started experiencing gas pains, became constipated, fussy, uncomfortable after feedings, and we even began to hear gas bubbles in her tummy along with experiencing difficult evenings due to all the discomfort baby was in. Not sure if the powder is made different but it definitely has a different reaction to our baby than the ready to feed bottles.

We tried the ready to feed first and then bought the powder for my mostly breastfed 12 week old. The ready to feed bottles are convenient, but she spits them up. However, if we make a bottle using the powder she doesn't have the same problem. Not sure if it is because of how they are made or if it is because they are stored in a warehouse before reaching a retail store, but she has had less gas and spit up on this formula than on a standard or gentle formula.

I started baby on this to adjust from breastfeeding, incorporating formula with breast milk little by little. Within the week of using it my son was an unhappy baby. Constantly crying, fussing and screaming in pain. We tried gas drops and gripe water and nothing was relieving his pain. He went about 3 days with no bowel movement. I can hear his tummy bubbling with gas but nothing was coming out. My poor baby was suffering. We recently switched to a sensitive tummy formula hoping this helps.
