Soy formula...Enfamil or Good Start?

My little one is cow's milk protein allergic. So she takes breast milk and Soy formula...we've been using Enfamil with Lipil but wondered about Good Start. Anyone with experience using both? Thanks!

Mine had problems with all Enfamil products (fussy, VERY gassy & spitting up).   We finally switched to Similac Isomil Advanced after reading reviews from Moms on .    I will say that the top two soy choices were Similac & Good Start.   I opted for Similac mostly because my LO didn't do well with the Good Start Supreme when we tried it (before we found out we should switch to a soy formula).    My LO seems to like the Similac... much less fussy and gassy with it.   Just watch for constipation.   Otherwise, I have a pretty happy LO.

My first born had horrible gas on anything but Good Start. My little girl gets gasy but not painful gas like my first and she is on the Similac Early Shield Advance. It gets pricey though so we checked out the difference between this and the cost co formula. And She does well on the cost co brand.

With her we had the spitting up problem. But when we switched to a purified water that helped eliminate that.

Sorry I wasn't much help. Lol.

we are switching from enfamil to good start soy because my 2mo old still has gas with enfamil
