Stage 1 Gerber® Good Start® Gentle for Supplementing

Routine infant formula ideal for supplementing breastmilk
(Birth-12 months)

  • 100% whey protein partially hydrolyzed formula may help reduce the risk of atopic dermatitis, the most common allergic disease of infancy†
  • Probiotic B. lactis to support the immune system and digestive health
  • Easy to digest and supports soft stools
  • Expert-recommended DHA for brain and eye development
  • Vitamin D to support bone development
  • Non-GMO — not made with genetically engineered ingredients


†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} 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. The scientific evidence for this is limited and not all babies may benefit.

Partially hydrolyzed formulas should not be fed to infants who are allergic to milk or to infants with existing milk allergy symptoms. If you suspect a baby is allergic to milk, or if a baby is on a special formula for the treatment of allergy, their care and feeding choices should be under a doctor’s supervision.
