If a baby needs a lower intake of minerals, then this is a very good product (and about the only one that I have found so far). Although it can be a bit more expensive than other alternatives, it can be worth the money if it is necessary. We have been pleased with the results of this product when we have needed to use it. Easily Digested This formula does seem more effective for our babies when they needed to slightly reduce their mineral and iron intake for a short period of time. In our somewhat limited experience, it has worked quite well for them, although someone who needed to use it longer than we did may have a different opinion. Ease of Preparation This is a powdered formula that simply needs to be mixed with water in a bottle. Once it is mixed, it may need to be adjusted to the right temperature. We usually adjust the temperature by warming up a container of hot water and letting the bottle sit in it until it is warm enough.
