Enfagrow® Toddler Transitions® Gentlease®

For Fussiness and Gas, Milk-based powder with partially broken down proteins.

Last Updated: Monday, July 6, 2015 - 20:00

Description/Indications:

Enfagrow Toddler Transitions Gentlease is a 20 Cal/fl oz complete infant and toddler formula for toddlers 9-18 months who are transitioning from infant formula or breast milk. Enfagrow Toddler Transitions Gentlease can be helpful in situations where Enfamil PREMIUM® Gentlease® was used in infancy1 and when sensitivity appears to continue. Enfagrow Toddler Transitions Gentlease has an easy-to-digest protein blend with a whey-to-casein ratio of 60:40* that has been partially broken down. It also has 25% of the lactose of a routine, milk-based infant and toddler formula.

Enfagrow Toddler Transitions Gentlease has DHA, iron, vitamin C, vitamin E and over 20 other nutrients to help support growth and development. When toddlers transition to new foods, ensuring complete nutrition can become more of a challenge. Enfagrow Toddler Transitions Gentlease helps make sure toddlers get the nutrients they might still need.


* Prior to partial hydrolysis.

† Approximately ½ the lactose of a routine, milk-based infant and toddler formula.

  • Preparation of Feedings
    • Powder

      The baby’s health depends on carefully following the instructions below. Use only as directed by a medical professional. Proper hygiene, preparation, dilution, use and storage are important when preparing infant formula. Powdered infant formulas are not sterile and should NOT be fed to premature infants or infants who might have immune problems unless directed and supervised by a doctor. Discuss with parents which formula is appropriate for the baby.

      Discuss with parents whether they need to use cooled, boiled water for mixing and whether they need to boil clean utensils, bottles and nipples in water before use.

      WARNING: Do not use a microwave oven to warm formula. Serious burns may result.

      Refer to the product label for the most accurate information.

      Failure to follow these instructions could result in severe harm. Once prepared, infant formula can spoil quickly. Either feed immediately or cover and store in refrigerator at 35–40°F (2–4°C) for no longer than 24 hours. Do not use prepared formula if it is unrefrigerated for more than a total of 2 hours. Do not freeze prepared formula. After feeding begins, use formula within 1 hour or discard.

      1. Wash hands thoroughly with soap and water before preparing formula.
      2. Pour the desired amount of water into the bottle. Add powder.
      3. Cap bottle and SHAKE WELL.

      Use the following chart for correct amounts of water and powder. Use scoop in tub or can to measure powder. Store DRY scoop in lid holder in tub or in can.
