By Gerber3 Reviews
Expiration Date: Oct 2015
The length of time for the expiration date or "best used before" date depends on the type of product, as well as the brand.
Perishable items (such as flax oils or certain probiotics) generally have shorter expiration dates. Although our warehouse is fully air-conditioned, these more fragile items are put in cold storage (freezer or refrigeration unit) for maximum freshness.
Our receiving department does its best to verify and then enter the correct expiration dates for all incoming products. However, discrepancies do occur from time to time. This being said, the exceptionally high turnover at iHerb ensures that our inventory is among the freshest in the industry.

The Shipping Weight includes the product, protective packaging material and the actual shipping box. In addition, the Shipping Weight may be adjusted for the Dimensional Weight (e.g. length, width & height) of a package. It is important to note that certain types of products (e.g. glass containers, liquids, fragile, refrigerated or ice packed) will often require protective packaging material. As such, these products will reflect a higher Shipping Weight compared to the unprotected product.

Good Food, Good Life
What are probiotics and how can they benefit my infant?
Good to know
Probiotics are good bacteria that are found in Breastmilk and help support your infant's digestive health and developing immune system.
Good Start Gentle for Supplementing is the only formula with probiotic B. lactis that increase the good bacteria in your infant's digestive system to help promote a healthy digestive tract where 80% of the immune system resides.
Good to remember
Good Start Gentle for Supplementing formula is an ideal choice for breastfeeding moms who supplement because our formula offers gentle nutrition with Comfort Proteins and probiotic B. lactis† to help support the digestive health of those infants receiving both breastmilk and formula.
†B. lactis provides the live and active probiotic cultures Bifidobacterium lactis. Bifidobacteria are the most abundant type of culture found in the digestive system of breastfed babies.
Makes approximately 90 fl oz (2.8 qt) of formula.

Cap bottle; Shake well. Feed baby immediately or refrigerate and use bottle within 24 hours. Once feeding begins, use within 1 hour or discard.
Your baby's health depends on carefully following the preparation, use, and storage instructions. Ask your baby's doctor about infant formula feeding* including how much to feed and the need to sterilize (boil) water and preparation utensils before mixing formula.
