  • ~~NESTLE CARNATION GOOD START~~CLOSEST TO BREASTMILK (NOW GOOD START ESSENTIALS)

    Jul 19, 2001 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Iron-fortified; easy to digest; cost effective when compared to other starter formulas.
    Cons: No formula can duplicate the many beneficial ingredients found only in breastmilk.

    Summary: Of course, breastmilk is almost always the best nutritional choice when it comes to choosing feeding methods for your new baby. The perfect balance of fats, proteins, carbohydrates, vitamins, minerals, and immune-system-building protective ... read more

    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Very easy on baby's tummy, does not smell or stain.
    Cons: Only holds baby for two hours between bottles. Hard to dissolve in room temp. water.

    Summary: When my son was born in December 2004, I had planned to breastfeed exclusively for at least the first six months of his life. Unfortunately, my body had other plans, and that didn't work out. I got a severe breast infection (mastitis) which led to ... read more

    Pros: It works! Easy to find, inexpensive.
    Cons: None.

    Summary: A revision and update - we had to take my second baby off of Good Start since she was having very fussy periods and great difficulty making BM's. So, we are back on Alimentum. Good Start is good for some babies and it's certainly worth a try if other mi ... read more

    Jun 8, 2003 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Eased my son's colic and he is actually sleeping!
    Cons: I wish I had known about it sooner.

    Summary: Today my son became a different child. He is just over 6 weeks old. Due to problems, I could not breastfeed and my son was given Enfamil with Iron because that is what WIC allows. He was fine until the second week when really bad colic set in. The doctor ... read more

    Mar 24, 2003 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Inexpensive, some babies take well to the "comfort proteins"
    Cons: Made my baby gassy and her diapers smell foul

    Summary: When my baby was born, I breastfed for the most part. Every once in a while, my daughter would have a bottle. The doctors gave us Enfamil Lipil (that is a great formula) and it worked out wonderful. When she finished that can, we had to go purchase ... read more

    Pros: Easily digested. Great for my colicky baby. No more painful gas.
    Cons: wish ready to feed came in plastic bottles instead of cans.

    Summary: Our son was 2 weeks old when he became "colicky". Very gassy, burpy, cried every nite for several hours. Had hard poops. We had him on Similac for the first month. After reading so many reviews about Good Start, we decided to give it a try. Within a ... read more

    Mar 8, 2003 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Just as good and costs less.
    Cons: Does not mix as easily in powder form.

    Summary: Having a baby is expensive. Feeding that child formula instead of breast milk makes it even more expensive. With all the choices out there it is hard to come to a decision that is comfortable. Carnation Good Start was not out when I had my ... read more

    Pros: WIC approved
    Cons: Did not fill my babies needs

    Summary: We have had some problems getting our fourth baby boy (7 months) adjusted to a formula which suits him. We have finally settled on Enfamil Low Iron. We started with Enfamil on WIC and had to make the switch to Carnation due to the recent contract with ... read more

    Pros: It allows the baby to get the same nutrition as other milk based formulas
    Cons: Not the same size can as other formulas
