Growing Up with Gerber

What did new parents do before the internet? I thought we were completely ready after I had the baby. We had read every book, followed blogs, and took lots of advice. Then, we came home. Every ten minutes I had a new question I was typing into the search box and often agonizing on how to ask such questions to the internet without getting strange search results. However, I stumbled upon and some of my new parent anxiety was put to rest.


I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for Gerber Baby. I received a promotional item to thank me for my participation.

This brand has been providing for families for generations, and their website proved to be a trusted source for me to ask questions, track my son’s growth, and shop for safe, reliable products. With sections to guide you from pregnancy through the toddler stages, has the important information you need to know about your child’s development and nutrition.

As I struggled with breastfeeding during the first few weeks, I found helpful tips on the website. It proved especially helpful as I wanted to cry in frustration at two a.m. when I couldn’t call family or friends with my “urgent” questions. Then, when I decided to supplement my son’s diet with a little formula, I found exactly what I needed on the website. The Gerber® Good Start® gentle supplement was what he needed, and I could buy it right online, which was extremely helpful considering I couldn’t seem to find time to get dressed not to mention find my way to a store.

After signing up for my own My Gerber® free profile, I found that I could track my son’s growth and see what percentile he was in for every stage. It also provided helpful nutritional tips, videos, and resources. I could even schedule a call with a lactation consultant! This is the kind of interactive resource that moms need! If you’re a first time mom, I would highly recommend signing up for your own free MyGerber account.

  1. I ordered a Gerber spoon for my 2 older kids years ago with their names. I just remembered having that when I was little as a keepsake and it was such a cherished item.

  2. What a precious little boy.Congratulations. I didn’t have any children of my own but was privileged to watch all of my nieces and nephews grow up.
