When my son was born I started him on similac since it was what the hospital offered however we quickly switched him over to goodstart because it was just as good quality but lower in price and went on sale more often. These were my favourite because it was so potable, quick and easy. They are howver super expensive and when your baby starts drinking more you are better off buying the powder or liquid to mix. I recommend these for traveling!
I had to start supplementing early on, around 2 weeks old, and this is what we used. Luckily I did some trading and driving around and stocked up on the free samples before he was born, but once we ran out I found it got pretty expensive. I used these for about 2.5 months, but after about a month we started using the liquid you mix with water and only used these when we were out and about. I've made a lot of bottles that ended up being wasted because he didnt end up needing to eat, but with these, that was never an issue.
Theyre only good for when babies are small though. My boy is almost 5 months old and he'd finish 2 of these bottles easily. The price is also a bit much. But I prefer goodstart over all the other brands so I didn't mind it so much. Plus, they give coupons in their free sample packages so I've never paid full price for any of my good start!
If I ever have another baby I'll be buying these again! Just wish theyd go on sale more often.
Will always recommend these to friends / people online!
I love the ready to feed bottles for many reasons. With 5 kids, all bottle fed, I've tried many different formulas and I always come back to this one. What I like about these ready to feed bottles is that unlike other brands who only have 1.5 oz bottles, the Goodstart bottles are 3oz, which means that I was able to use them longer. And even better than that is the GLASS bottles!! So much better than plastic!!
My baby needed some formula as a supplement while we were building supply. We breastfeed, but he needed some extra "food". I liked that Good Start 1 also comes Ready to Feed, it's very convenient specially when you are going out or are tired, sleepy, and have a hungry baby. I really liked that it came in glass bottles instead of the usual plastic, as glass is inert and safer, I think. The mouth of the jar is standard, and fits regular nipples for baby bottles. I will use Good Start 1 again if and when my future baby needs some supplements.
I used these with my newborn, Nestle sent a sample pack as well as coupons for more. They are on the pricey side, running $20 for a case of eight bottles. I probably would not have spent the money if I didn't have a $10 off coupon. They are, however, really handy in the first couple of weeks when you need formula now. Also, I like to use these when I am in town or travelling.
I found these came in handy when my daughter was first born. A bit pricy but definitely worth the money. I will be getting some for my second child. B
This is a great product for a mom who has their hands full with a newborn baby. Pop it into a bottle and you're golden. However it does get really expensive as baby get older and hungrier.
My baby loved this formula when I had to give it to her. Very convenient. However it is so expensive.
I used this formula with my first & she loved it. Formula is ready made & ready to use, no work needed. I always had a box in stock,for super busy days!
This was the only formula my daughter could have,others seem to make her sick and this one agreed with her.These are convenient and already made ,super easy for rushed days
