Gerber® Good Start® GentlePro Liquid

Modeled after the complete nutrition and gentleness of breastmilk. For complete nutrition & advanced comfort.

High Quality 100% Whey Protein, Partially Hydrolyzed

  • Small proteins that are easy to digest
  • Promotes softer stools*
  • Clinically shown to deliver a gastric emptying time similar to breastmilk at 30 minutes
  • May help reduce the risk of developing atopic dermatitis†

Prebiotic Galacto-oligosaccharides (GOS)**

  • Prebiotics are important components of breastmilk
  • Promote digestive health

DHA

  • Expert-recommended DHA to support brain & eye development

 

* Compared to intact (non-hydrolyzed) cow’s milk protein formula
† For healthy infants who are not exclusively breastfed and who have a family history of allergy, feeding a 100% whey protein partially hydrolyzed infant formula, like Gerber® Good Start® GentlePro, from birth up to 4 months of age instead of a formula made with intact cow’s milk proteins may reduce the risk of developing atopic dermatitis throughout the first year of life. Not for treatment.
** GOS is not found in breastmilk.
