Good Start formula question

Is there a difference between Good Start Natural Cultures and Good Start Protection Plus?
I was arguing with a helper at the store about it because he kept insisting that its the same thing. But if it was then why have a different name?
So is it the same thing just in a different can and I just made a big hubbub about nothing? Or did the helper just have no idea what he was talking about?

  • Well there definitely is a difference between all the formulas, whether it be an extra ingredient or what have you. I use Natural Cultures for Good Start. It's supposed to be the closest to breastmilk as far as formula goes, and cuts down on gas and colic. Since I have been using it my little girl hardly ever gets gas. But I haven't tried that other kind.

  • It's the same thing. Nestle changed their cans. Go to gerber.com. I use Good Start Supreme with Comfort Proteins DHA & ARA now it's called Good Start Gentle Plus. Same color orange can but different name and design. The one you use is in the green can right?

  • I came back to tell you what kaosgirly told you. LOL I don't know how I could have been so dumb! I use the Natural Cultures, but when they changed their can, they named it Protection Plus. DUH, I just noticed today, but I've been using it for a week. LMAO.

    So I retract my previous answer, and my new answer is that they're exactly the same!!
