Our first daughter, now 3 yrs old, was on Similac Advantage at first because that was what she was given at the hospital. She had such upset tummy and would not poop for 6-7 days being on Similac. I decided then to try Enfamil Lipil and that helped so much with her BM. She still had some tummy problems but at least she was not constipated. We tried giving her Gentlease at 6 weeks to help her out with gas but she would not take it. Maybe because Gentlease has a little bitter-ish taste and she was already so used to Enfamil Lipil. Overall she was just a very fussy baby and mostlikely colicky. She loved Enfamil Lipil and we somehow made through, her colic subsided and she was on Enfamil Lipil until she was 12 months old.
Our second daughter is now 11 weeks old. I tried breastfeeding but it did not work. My husband freaked out a little when I told him that we will put her on formula. He was so afraid of going through what we went with our first one. So many interrupted nights. I heard so many great things about Gentlease and decided to give it another shot and we started her on it from the beginning She did not have any problems at all. In a meantime I received a sample of Similac Sensitive and decided to give it a try, specially that two of my friends had their kids on it and were very happy with that product. Unfortunately it did not work for us. My daughter was screaming non stop, would not sleep, I could not do anything around the house nor take my girls anywhere. Constant holding her in my arms did not help at all. Nothing worked to calm her down. Overnight she changed from an angel to not so much of an angel at all. She was on Similac Sensitive for 3 weeks, developed such bad diahrrea. I then switched her back to Gentlease and within 2 days she was back to normal, my sweet, calm, little angel. She has been sleeping for 6 hours straight at night ever since, which I think is pretty awesome for such a little baby. I only feed her once or twice at night. I guess, every baby is different and every baby needs a different formula that works best for him/her.
I am totally satisfied with Enfamil Gentlease and would strongly recommend it to anybody with my full confidence.

I must be missing something here! Why are you changing the packaging? The new packaging is extremely uneasy & user unfreindly. Plus you have increased the prices Oz per Oz for the new box. Are we supposed to empty the pouch in the box? there is no specific instructions! is the box air tight so there is no bacteria contaminating the content? whoever has designed this package does not know anything about having babies and feeding them. Most importantly as many of parents here will testify, when you have a screeming baby in your arm you have only one hand to work with, so how the h... you can open this box and then open the pouch inside??? Who cares for the new design! We were as happy with the old box design. Most supermarkets do not have the separate refills anyway, so we end up buying new packages; where is the saving of the environment there? And where is our savings specially in this hard economic times? To recap I think this new Idea is a Scham to increase the prices and ridiculous to say the least and if you think I am missing something here I am all ears; enlighten me!!

Comments about Mead Johnson Enfamil Gentlease Powder - 21.5 Ounce:

Initially my son was breastfed up until 4 weeks. Due to complications I eventually switched him to formula. I started with Similac because it is supposed to be the closest replication of mothers milk. My son was SO constipated he would scream non-stop while trying to have a bowel movement. When he did they were like pebbles. I then found Enfamil Reguline, within 24 hours he had softer poo! Then elation turned to horror when he not only got diaper rash, but horrible Diarrhea. Similac Sensitivity makes him spit up and extremely gassy. So on to Gentlease. He did not like the flavor, and would spit it out, but he is a big boy and likes to eat. Afer a couple of days he got used to it and started drinking his normal sized bottles. After two days of using it he started having normal BMs the consistency of Peanut Butter. HOORAY! The gentlease does make him gassy, but not as bad as others. Sometimes he still gets a little stopped up, but once he passes the harder stool it is always followed by a soft stool. He is much happier and that is all that matters to me. In Conclusion, Gentlease is the best for us, though not perfect it is better than everything else we tried.

        Originally, I had my daughter on the Enfamil Newborn formula. At first, it worked well but after a few days, she was very gassy and uncomfortable. I decided to try this formula and so glad I did! After a day on it, she was a lot less gassy and fussy. I am very happy!
