      I love this product! It saved us! My baby(4 mos) used to poop once every five days. And when that came, it was a painful moment for all of us. His stool was greenish and pasty, and very very sticky. After some research I decided to try this product and magic happened. He pooped the next day right after having this formula. After two days, the color turned yellowish. And no more red faces and grumpy noises. Just cannot thank you enough, diaper.com!

          This product saved our baby. He was so uncomfortable-had stomach cramps and was really gassy on the normal formula-and once we determined that he may have a sensitivity to the iron in the formula and switched him over to Similac 60/40, it immediately made a huge difference and he is so much more comfortable and happier now! If you think your baby might have an iron sensitivity don't wait to try this out-it may make a huge difference for your little one as well.

          Love this formula, my baby has an iron intolerance and no matter what formula I put her on, and the protein that was in it she was terribly constipated for a week after birth. The doctor kept giving my baby laxatives, until mom(a healthcare professional) figured out the problem. I was going to breastfed but couldnot due to no milk production, trust me I tried everything to get my milk to come in, but it never did. This is the closest formula to breast milk and now I have a happy healthy baby girl, that is doing wonderful! All signs and symptons cleared up after 1 week of using this formula, no more constipation, no runny eyes, normal baby.

          Comments about PM 60/40 Powder Formula - 14.1 oz:

          I stopped breast feeding at 5 weeks. On formula my baby was having problems with gas, pooping, was extra fussy and uncomfortable. Finally at 7 weeks I couldn't take it anymore. I felt so bad for him and was tired of using a Q-Tip with Vaseline to help him poop. So I ordered this formula and have been mixing it 1/2 & 1/2 with his other newborn formula. It has been a miracle worker! He has been on the new mixed formula for 3 days and has pooped 2 days on his own! He is happier, eating more at feedings and sleeping better. He still is a little fussy and has problems with gas and burps. I've been using the mam bottles and that seems to help with the gas issue. In all I am a big fan of Similac 60/40 and diapers.com!

            I had to supplement with formula since our baby girl was 2 month old due to low breast milk supply. Tried 3 different formulas, even Gentlease - they all caused frequent spit ups and irregular bowel movements:( This one worked great since day 2, and baby really likes the taste, no more screaming when she sees the bottle. We've been using it for almost a month now - no problems. The only complain - the formula gets foamy when you shake the bottle, so I just use spoon to mix it.

              I ordered this to help with my 3 month old's gas. She also started spitting up violently so I started to give her Enfamil AR which is a miracle formula, but I don't want her to get constipated from it so I mix equal parts this Similac with the Enfamil and it works great. The gas isn't as bad, and the poops are still on a normal schedule.

                  This formula has been a lifesaver for my daughter. Iron intolerance runs in my family and thankfully, I knew the signs. Sure enough, my daughter has inherited that also. She screamed through EVERY bottle of Similac Advanced, Similac Sensitive, Gerber Good Start Plus, Prosobee Soy, Enfamil Newborn AND Enfamil Infant. She had nasty, sticky, paint-like poop, and constant vomiting. The ped wanted to put her on Prosobee Soy. Um, no. Sorry, nice try. The ped told us there was NO Low-Iron formula on the market and it was bad for babies. Well, this is. Thankfully diapers.com had it. Finally, after realizing what her problem was I found this formula. We tried it and it was a godsend! We supplement with Store Brand Gentle. We also started feeding her at 3 months (she's 4 months now) just to keep the iron from sitting in her stomach. With the Gentle & Low Iron formula AND the feedings, ALL symptons of iron intolerance have gone away!!! No Reflux, No Colic, No Constipation and No Vomiting!!!

                  I would recommend this product for infants that have iron intolerance. If you think your child has iron problems (constipation, sticky dark green paint-like poop, colic), don't be afraid to try this formula.

                  My doctor told me to find a formula with less iron for my son who had really bad constipation. I found this and it worked wonderfully. but then July 24th he got very sick with whooping cough and was hospitalized. The nutrition lady told me that this formula is what they use for paitents with kidney problems and failure. I was shocked my doctor didnt tell me that. So we went through a list and found gerber good start gentle plus. he has had no issues with constipation and it still taste good doesnt stain and has all the nutrition he needs.

                    I had a hard time finding a formula that my son would take when I was weaning him from breastmilk, and if you've ever tasted infant formulas you know why. I don't know what gives the other formulas their foul smell and taste, but this stuff has a slightly sweet taste more similar to breastmilk. This stuff doesn't have DHA/ARA, but I actually prefer a formula without added DHA/ARA because all but 1 formula maker uses DHA/ARA sourced from algal oils which is extracted by hexane. I supplement DHA/ARA using an egg-based formulation instead.
                    I haven't had any issues with constipation, gas, or spit up, and it doesn't stain bibs or clothing. My baby was 6 months old before I began supplementing formula, so he was already getting his daily supply of iron from fortified cereal and baby food.

                        My daughter had suffered with stomach problems since she was about 2 months. i was breast feeding and supplementing with regular formula. she would scream for an hour after eating. it was so hard to hear my baby in so much pain. she had diarrhea and then constipation. she would scream and wake herself up in the middle of the night by the pain of passing gas. the sound was so loud it would wake me up too. the doctor insisted it was not the formula. But EVERY MOM i spoke to said it is the IRON! so i looked every where for low iron formula: not one store carries it. Thank God Diaper.com sells it. within in one weekend she was better. now she is 5 months. she never cries, moves her bowels at least 3 times a day. She is like a different child. I am so thankful i listen to my instincts and not some money hungry doctor who probably gets kickbacks with every can of Enfimil he pushes. So corrupt! yea keep the babies sick so they have to keep coming back. its a conspiracy i think. We need Low Iron formula for our children!

                            My son is 10 months old and for about 2-3 months he was struggling with constipation. He would strain when going and then there would be black nuggets/pellets. This went on for what seemed forever, despite giving him extra fluids, fruit, veges, etc... The doctor told me that if extra fluids didn't work, he would have to go on laxatives. I wasn't buying it.

                            I started researching low iron formula and read the reviews on this so I decided to buy 2 cans from diapers.com . I started him on the formula on Monday and I immediately noticed a difference. His poop was still hard and he was still straining, but I began to see color (what he ate), instead of black. It is now Thursday and his poop looked just perfect (I know, gross, but true!). I could tell exactly what he ate yesterday and it was very soft! I didn't even hear him go! I will continue using this formula until he begins cow's milk in a couple months. I'm bummed it's so expensive, but it is well worth it to see my son more comfortable. I would definitely recommend trying this product!!
