Frequently asked questions

Breastfeeding is going great and I def want to keep it up when I go back to work. Do you have any tips for me?

Awesome – keep up the great work! You can def keep breastfeeding while you go back to work by pumping and giving your baby bottles of your breastmilk. Start the process a few weeks before you go back so your LO can get used to taking a bottle (you may need to enlist help getting your baby to take a bottle). Be sure to talk to your employer about pumping at work (the where, when, etc) so you can make up a schedule. Need more info? Text Dotti to make an appointment with our certified lactation consultant.

My pediatrician said my baby has colic. Do you have any products for babies with colic?

Gerber has products that may help address colic, excessive crying and fussiness.  If you are breastfeeding, try Gerber Soothe Colic Drops – a probiotic supplement with L. reuteri.  L. reuteri has been shown in clinical studies to reduce crying time by 50% in as little as 1 week.  Soothe Drops are also available with Vitamin D.  If you are formula feeding, you might try switching to Gerber® Good Start®
