The first formula you feed your baby matters…
Breastfeeding is the best way to reduce the risk of your baby developing atopic dermatitis. If you decide to introduce formula, studies show that by starting with a formula made with 100% whey protein partially hydrolyzed, like GERBER® GOOD START® Gentle formula, may also reduce the risk of developing atopic dermatitis
What is atopic dermatitis?
Atopic dermatitis is a type of eczema and a common sign of allergy in infants.
The first and only qualified health claim for infant formula.
For healthy infants who are not exclusively breastfed and who have a family history of allergy, feeding 100% whey-protein partially hydrolyzed infant formula, like GOOD START® Gentle formula from birth up to 4 months of age instead of a formula containing intact cow's milk proteins may reduce the risk of developing atopic dermatitis throughout the first year of life. The FDA has concluded that the relationship between 100% whey-protein partially hydrolyzed infant formulas and the reduced risk of atopic dermatitis is uncertain, because there is little scientific evidence for the relationship.
GOOD START® Gentle formula should not be fed to infants who are allergic to milk or infants with existing milk-allergy symptoms. Not for allergy treatment.

100% whey protein partially hydrolyzed—our unique process to break down proteins into smaller pieces designed for your little one. Our Comfort Proteins may be more accepted by your baby's immune system than the whole (intact) proteins found in other routine formulas.
