    Enfamil® Gentlease®

    Milk-based infant formula with partially broken-down proteins designed to reduce fussiness, gas, and crying within 24 hours

    Indication

    Enfamil Gentlease is a 20 Cal/fl oz, milk-based infant formula designed to reduce fussiness, gas and crying.1 It has an easy-to-digest milk protein blend patterned after breast milk (whey and casein in a 60:40 ratio)* that has been partially broken down. The formula is nutritionally balanced and has docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) and arachidonic acid (ARA), nutrients also found in breast milk that promote brain and eye development.

    Product long term usage

    Enfamil Gentlease is designed to provide the sole source of nutrition for infants up to age 6 months and provide a major source of nutrition for the remainder of the first year.

    *Comparison to whey-to-casein ratio of typical mature breast milk (15 days to 6 months after birth) prior to hydrolysis.

    PRODUCT BENEFITS

    Enfamil Gentlease is designed to reduce fussiness, gas and crying in 24 hours1

    A special blend of easy-to-digest proteins that have been partially broken down

    • Has ~20% of lactose* as a source of carbohydrates; infants with transient lactase deficiency generally can tolerate formulas with some lactose

    Clinically proven DHA at 0.32% of total fatty acids, the same as the worldwide breast milk average2

    DHA is:

    • Clinically provento support mental, visual and immune system development3–6
    • Clinically shown to improve long-term cognitive outcomes through 5 years of age†7
    • Shown to improve respiratory health through the first 3 years of life when infants were fed through 12 months†3

    Additional product features:

    • No artificial flavors, sweeteners or colors
    • Kosher

    *Of a routine formula.
    †Studies compared infants fed Enfamil® with DHA and ARA vs. discontinued Enfamil without DHA and ARA; studied before the addition of prebiotics.
    ‡Average amount of DHA in worldwide breast milk is 0.32% ± 0.22% (mean ± standard deviation of total fatty acids) based on an analysis of 65 studies of 2,474 women.2

    DIGESTION DISCOMFORT AND THE IMMATURE GUT

    In otherwise healthy infants, digestive discomfort may occur because infants have an immature gut. This video discusses the developing infant digestive system and how formula with partially hydrolyzed protein and reduced lactose can help.
