Benefits of 100% gentle whey protein
Throughout your baby’s first year, her digestive system is still developing. Whey protein, a main protein in breastmilk, is easy for babies to digest. This is one of the many reasons experts recommend breastfeeding for the first year of life.
So for moms who choose to formula-feed, GERBER® GOOD START® formulas with gentle 100% whey COMFORT PROTEINS® are a good choice. That’s because COMFORT PROTEINS are partially hydrolyzed—or broken down into smaller pieces—to be easy for a baby’s developing tummy to digest.
Clinical evidence has shown that formula made with partially hydrolyzed whey protein empties from babies’ tummies faster than other routine formulas, which may help reduce the potential for spitting up.
In addition, the stools of babies on formulas with higher whey content tend to be softer, like those of breastfed infants. So babies fed GOOD START formulas may be more likely to have stool patterns similar to those of breastfed babies.
