Some of our Top FAQ's

  • Are Gerber® juices pasteurized?

    Yes, Gerber® juices are pasteurized.
  • Are there formulas that are suited for supplementing breastfeeding?

    All routine formulas provide complete nutrition and can be used for supplementing breastmilk. Gerber® Good Start® Gentle powder formula is an ideal choice for when breastfeeding moms supplement because it is made with probiotics, good bacteria also found in breastmilk that support digestive health as well as 2’-FL HMO. 2’-FL HMO is a prebiotic oligosaccharide similar to one of the HMO components found in breastmilk. Gerber Good Start Gentle formulas are also made with 100% whey protein partially hydrolyzed that is easy to digest. Formulas made with 100% whey protein partially hydrolyzed also promote softer stools –which may support a smooth transition to supplementing.

  • Can I feed cereal from a bottle?

    We recommend that you do not feed cereal from a bottle, unless directed by your pediatrician. Feeding cereal from a spoon helps develop feeding skills.
