My son started off drinking the Similac Advanced with Triple Shield. I took comfort in knowing that he was getting the formula with the most health benefits, but noticed that he was very gassy, fussy and uncomfortable. First I tried switching the style of bottles we were using and that helped but it still didn't fix the problem. So then we asked his pediatrician what we should do for him, and he suggested switching to the Similac Sensitive. Worked like a charm! I immediately noticed a difference after the first feeding, and within a week he was doing so much better. He wasn't gassy and fussy and uncomfortable any more. He was full, happy and healthy. My son stayed on this formula until he was one and switched to whole milk. The only downside to this formula was the enormous recall that happened , thankfully, after my son stopped drinking it. Even though this formula worked so well for my son, I still see empty shelves with signs from the recall. It makes me wonder how much I can trust this brand now that I'm pregnant again. My daughter is due in only 3 months.  I'm now looking into trying Enfamil. If for some reason it seems like she isn't doing well with Enfamil then I would consider going back to the Similac Sensitive since it worked so well for my son.

**Similac Sensitive for Fussiness & Gas Infant Formula** is designed for babies that have lactose intolerance or experience negative side effects when they drink traditional baby formula.

I'm reviewing this product because I went online to see what the ingredients were in this formula. I wanted to know what made it "sensitive". I was disappointed to see that instead of milk, the first ingredients were corn syrup solids and sugar. I understand that the lactose in milk can cause some babies with negative side-effects, but I don't like that those two ingredients were the main ingredients in this formula.

If your baby has issues with lactose, I'm sure you don't have very many options and need to use **Similac Sensitive for Fussiness & Gas Infant Formula**, but since mine doesn't, I'll stick with my Similac Organic Formula.

Easily Digested
My son was recently in the hospital and the nurses gave me bottles of this Similac Sensitive Formula to give to my 7-month old son. He drank this formula in the hospital and all of the remaining bottles once we got home. He experienced no gas, spit-up or other problems while drinking this formula, but he doesn't experience any problems with lactose either.

Ease of Preparation
Easy to prepare, just add the powder formula to water in the bottle.

    Comments about Similac for Fussiness & Gas Baby Formula:

    I love this new formula from Similac. MY son did great. Never had issue with fussiness or constipation BUT when mixing makes alot of foam/bubbles. I will usually make the bottle 30 minutes before feeding time to let the foam sit.

      Comments about Similac for Fussiness & Gas Baby Formula:

      My son was 3 1/2 weeks early and he was put on this formula right from birth. Never had a problem with this formula and would definitely recommend 2 any parent who has a child that has been born early or has a problem with gas. My baby has never had a problem with gas at all and he is 9 months now.

          I absolutely love Similac Sensitive. It worked so well for my boys when they were newborns. They used to get so upset because normal formula would make them bloated and uncomfortable. I switched to Similac sensitive and the problems were gone! Easy as that. I received a sample then continued to purchase for the first 3 months for both my boys.

          I did not use name brand formulas with my first child after hearing scary reviews. However, this formula was recommended by our doctor for our second child as she struggled with constipation and gas from only a few weeks old. When we switched formulas to Similac Sensitive, the constipation was gone! This product also does not clump which allows for a smooth feeding experience.

            My 4 week old daughter was very gassy causing her to be fussy . changed formulas from unfamilia gentlease to gerber smooth and found no differnce in her fussiness. Then she began to spit up really bad so tried dr. Brown bottles before making the decision to change our 4 week old formuka for a third time . I was hesitant to change Her formula again worried it would make her stomach hurt more. after reading the reviews for similac sensitive I decided to buy a can and make the change Hoping for best but fearing the worse .... I immediatly seen the positive results making this change to similac sensitive . She immediately was sleeping better and content through out the day :)bests decison I made for her , I just wish I would of used this sooner and avoided the other two formulas .

              Comments about Similac for Fussiness & Gas Baby Formula:

              My daughter is 5 weeks old and has been gassy since we left hospital . Hospital started her with infamil gentlease after a week or two we switched to gerber good start which she was still gassy and noticed her stomach was bloated .We decided to try the dr.Brown bottles to see if that would help, Unfortunaly she continued to be gassy and began spitting up more then before after aprox. 3 weeks of using this formula so a this pointe we decided to try similac sensitive. I was so nervous to change her formula a 3rd time worried it would hurt her stomach and make things worse. But watching her spit up large amounts of formula and crying from gas pains - I had to figure something out besides milocon drops. We took the chance and bought a can of Similac and I can honesty say the positive results were immediately noticed! She didn't spit it up like gerber and she isn't fussy at all . I'm so thankful we tried the similac sentive and wish I would of used this formula sooner to satisfy her little tummy.

              Good For Upset Babies

              By 

              from Utah

              Comments about Similac for Fussiness & Gas Baby Formula:

              This formula does work quite well for fussy and gassy babies. It seems to help their digestion directly, so it can take care of the fussiness and the gas. Although it costs a little more than other formulas, it is probably worth the extra money.

              Easily Digested
              This formula was quite easy for our babies to digest, and it did seem to help with the gas and upset stomach problems that they had. They were much more contented when awake, and they had far less burping and spit-up. They also slept much better through the night, which I believe was the result of using a formula that was gentle on their stomachs and helped them be more comfortable.

              Ease of Preparation
              This formula is very simple to mix with water in a bottle. We use a vent air bottle that helps prevent the baby from swallowing too much air. With this type of bottle, you can shake the formula to mix it without fear of the baby getting too much air. This ability makes this formula even easier to mix and to use.
