This is a wonderful formula that truly does work to relieve spit-up, and in turn, makes a for a happier and more satisfied baby. For a first time mother, this was a life-saver! My baby was a strong eater since day one, as she was a 5 pounder at birth. While she is generally calm, we could see that she had a certain fussiness at times. After three weeks of life, she began to spit-up more frequently and intensely. Our doctor suggested this formula and it worked like a charm. Her spit-up disappeared almost immediately, and her demeanor went from slightly irritable to calm, happy, and playful. She has been on this formula now for the past two months and I have only had some minor issues with constipation. The formula is visibly much thicker than other formulas due to the rice starch. The doctor told me to resolve this by giving her an ounce or two of water once a day. Now that she is older she can tolerate a teaspoon of baby prune juice in one of her bottles. This keeps her system flowing. I am so grateful for this formula. It kept my daughter satisfied while waiting to begin cereal. While addressing the constipation issues, my doctor temporarily suggested I switch to similac alimentum to see if this would help. This was a disaster. She not only began to spit-up again, but it also affected her sleeping patterns. She went from almost sleeping through the night at two months, to back to being up every hour and a half. It was thin and unsatisfying. I quickly put her back on the Enfamil, and in a day and a half she was back to normal. Never again! She does still have some slight spit-up, but it is very minimal. My only criticisms for this product is that you have to wait 5 minutes for the formula to settle after mixing it. This is way too long for a crying baby to wait! Also, the ready-to-feed is very difficult to open. My husband has to do it for me and there isn't a replacement top to use on it after it is open. We use aluminum foil to keep it preserved. Otherwise, this is a great product for babies who need a little more than the average formulas out there.

This is my 3rd baby, she is 3 weeks old, and she does have very freq. spit up, (usually every burp & hicup) and I don't mean just alittle, usually it can add up to 1/2 an ounce or more of formula each feeding. I know how important it is to burp her every ounce but I had to make sure I was covered and the couch was covered up when it came to burping her. This is my 1st time trying a formula with rice starch on one of my children, and I do not see too much of a change. She is now projectile vomiting out of her nose and mouth 1-2 times a day with this formula, it is harder for her to clear it out and catch her breath since the formula is thicker. I will also say that at times, when she does finally burp, nothing comes up and if some formula does come up, it is usually clumpy. I know it is normal for babies to spit up, but this is getting frustrating. My 1st child was a serious spit upper, no formula or intervention could change it. 2nd child had piloric stenosis, (which can cause freq. projectile vomiting), after surgery she still spit up but not as bad as before the surgery. 3rd child, still working on. Hopefully, I can find a solution to this problem and make my baby & me less stressed out.

      Comments about Enfamil AR Infant Formula for Spit Up - Powder - 1 Can (22.2 oz):

      Since birth, my baby had been spitting up and choking on another formula. He would gag and milk would come out of his nose and mouth. Especially at night. It was a scary sight. He hadn't slept in 24 hours. Then my pediatrician recommended this. She requested 4 oz of pedialyte prior to feeding so that this and the previous formula wouldn't mix and upset his tummy. Now, he's resting often, no more choking or spitting up. He even stays full longer. Would recommend to anyone.

        Comments about Enfamil AR Infant Formula for Spit Up - Powder - 1 Can (22.2 oz):

        My son is 3 1/2 weeks olds and would spit up/throw up breast milk and Enfamil newborn formula and very constipated. I felt helpless that I couldn't make him better. The doctors say he has reflux and put him on a prescription medication, which we hated doing, that made him more fussier and constipated. He cried for three days straight on this medication. My husband went to buy new formula and found Enfamil AR and we decided to try it. On the FIRST bottle we saw improvements. No spitting up and pooped shortly after. He is like a whole new baby. Very happy mommy and daddy!!!!!!

              My son is a week old and we are supplimenting with formula because my milk came in late and he gets mad because it's not coming out fast enough for him. He was very gassy and this formula has done wonders for him.

                  I have breastfed my two other children and never needed formula, when I had my last child breastmilk did not work from him he screamed, cried, spit up everything as soon as I switch to Enfamil Gentlease his attitude changed he was very content, happy and satisified. Was also sleeping much better. The only problem I have with this product is the amount of gas it causes.

                    My daughter will be 5 months tomorrow on the 23rd and has been on almost every formula you can name. What we thought was a milk intolerance was actually reflux. She had been on Nutramigen prior to this and it helped but, her spit up began catching up to her and she lost 6oz in two weeks. We took her to the doctors on Tuesday and got her switched and she's already doing loads better. I have nothing negative to say about any of the formula's that my daughter's been on. I can agree that this formula is rather thick but a stage 2 nipple was all my daughter needed. I also suggest Enfamil to friends when they're pregnant. Thank you so much for making such a wide selection of formula. If we have a second child I will use your products again. Thank you again.

                      I was only breastfeeding for a short while. I started using formula when my newborn was 6 weeks old. (mixed with breast milk) I knew within 24 hours that the regular formula was causing serious discomfort and I wasn't going to gamble on the thought that 'it will take some time to get used to'. I knew if we were going to sleep, I needed to make a change! Within 12 hours of switching to the Gentlease, the crying and discomfort stopped and sleep was soon to follow for both of us! My baby is now 6 months old and we still use this formula! He still gets gassy every once in awhile, but I can say that the Gentlease has made a world of difference.
