Nestle Good Start

Has anyone had good experiences with this formula? I have to take my 11 week old off Enfamil Lipil because she is having such bad gas and not wanting to eat. My doc recommended Nestle Good Start to try. I would appreciate any feedback!!!

  • We loved it! It really helped my daughter's reflux. Keep an eye out at Target and BabiesRUs - they frequently have "bonus" sized cans and they frequently put them on sale.

  • My baby girl has been on Good Start and hasnt had a problem since she was born, til about 2 weeks ago (shes 5 months old). She now has very bad gas and I'm most likely switching. Good luck. All babies are different, Good Start is supposed to be the best.

  • Never used it, but I really liked Gentlease. Both my kids had gas issues, this was all they could tolerate.

  • WONDERFUL! My baby had surgery to correct her esophogus (she's 100% awesome now) and we switched her to Goodstart DHA/ARA the orange can when Enfamil and Similac made her acid reflux worse. Wow did her gas and burps calm fast. I'd recommend it.

  • I had good luck with it, but even better luck with Enfamil Gentlease, actually, the generic version of that. My little guy had reflux and was the spit up king until the gentle formula!
