I wasn't able to nurse my youngest so I searchedfor a formula that was organic and had the best stuff it could have. I tried another organic formula but it caused my baby to be severely constipated. Then I found the earths best sensitive formula and this works well! My baby is now 7 months old and very happy and healthy!
I was getting very upset with the different formula's out there, Enfamil and Similac brands in particular. I noticed that even just after I mixed both of their formulas, there was a sour small that was just hard to stomach. My daughter reacted poorly to their formulas with an upset stomach, gas, and diarreah. My pediatrician wanted to switch her to an all soy diet, but I requested to try an organic formula. From day one on this formula, my daughter rested easier, the diarreah subsided, and she had less spit up and little to no gas. This formula is a lifesaver! My daughter is now on an ALL Earths Best diet. Couldn't be happier.

This formula has made a huge difference for my son. I have 2 children, both exclusively formula fed as I couldn't breastfeed so making sure I'm using the best formula is incredibly important to me. My youngest is now 8 weeks old and has been on this formula for 3 weeks now. He has between 8 and 12 3 oz bottles a day. I tried other non-organic formulas that claim to reduce gas and/or fussing and crying before switching to Earths Best. The Gerber Soothe did make a slight difference over the regular Gerber formula, but he still had gas nearly every time he ate and would cry or fuss until he worked through it. The Similac didn't work at all and made him so uncomfortable that he couldn't settle down to nap during the day. Since I have started using this product his signs of discomfort after eating have disappeared. He is smiling, laughing, and interacting after a bottle and is sleeping much better during naps and at bedtime. It did take about 4 days for his system to get used to the new formula. During that time his BMs were slightly hard but have since softened so that he is not uncomfortable passing them. I like that there is less sugar in this than in some others and that its organic because it's free of GMOs and other unnatural ingredients. I also like that the scoop is marked to measure for 1 oz so I can make a 3 or 5 oz bottle and know I'm mixing it properly. The only negative feedback I have is the amounts of some vitamins are slightly less than other brands and it does produce quite a bit of foam when mixed - but these are far outweighed by the positive changes I've seen in my son since switching him over. I very rarely do reviews on products, but because this formula has made such a marked difference in my baby's demeanor I wanted to share in hopes that it will help another parent searching for the right formula for their baby.
If you are looking for organic this formula is great. Powder dissolves easy and not foamy at all. After 6 weeks of breastfeeding I had to begin supplementing. We went through every gentle formula thinking the gassiness was lactose sensitivity. However, at four months I began using this formula and have had no problems. In fact, the gas subsided. So glad I swapped to earths best. I have always been pleased with all of their products and choose organic when I can.
