The regular Good Start Supreme is the "normal" formula. The Natural Cultures is supposed to be easier on the tummy because it's easier to digest, and it supports a healthy immune system. It's the only formula that contains BIFIDUS BL, which is like those naturally promoted by breastmilk. Of course, it also has DHA and ARA for babies' brain and eye development.
I breastfed my first son for 17 months and automatically assumed it would work for the 2nd. I couldn't have been more wrong. Things went from bad to worse, and I ended up with mastitis 3 times. It turned out that he had bad reflux... Anyway, when I quit nursing, I was at a loss for which formula to choose. We went through Similac "normal" formula and Gentleease before we found this Natural Cultures to keep him from getting constipated. The rest is history! You can't go wrong with this one.
Target carries the cans with 25% more for $24.59, which is steal compared to what it used to be- $28 for a normal can. When they don't have 25% more cans at Target, I buy it at Publix because it's the cheapest place to get it. Also, I signed up on the Nestle website for coupons by mail. Publix also had a $5 coupon in this week's ad as well as Babies R Us is running a $20 sale on it this weekend. I am a frugal mom who shops around and then stocks up!

My son first started out on the good start (green can) did great on it! We wanted to save money and had friends recommend using the Parents choice (Walmart brand). We use the parents choice gentle in a purple can. He likes it and has been using it since he was about a month. It is about 15 dollars and that is a LOT cheaper than the good start!!!! Hope this helps.

hey i have a question about the taste.. i bought a couple of the nursette good start formulas and it had a bitter taste so i compred the tast to the free enfamil formula and that didnt have a bitter tast.. is it suppose to tast bitter.. i didnt give it to my son because it tasted gross,,today i bought the green power can soo i am going to see if that is bitter maybe it just was because it was in liquid form... does anyone know? MARINNA I went to babies rus because of the sale you told my about and i had an 11$ coupon so that was nice.. :)

I do. My son is 7 months old, and he has been on it because the other formulas made him constipated. Good Start Natural Cultures is the one he's on. It's the green can. I highly recommend it!
man im glad to hear that we just went to the doctor today for constipation and thats the formula they told us to try!!!! i hope it works for us as well!
