HiPP Combiotic stage 2 – tailered to your babies needs while growing
Your little one is not that little anymore when you compare it to when he/she was just born. Time goes fast and your baby is beginning to notice that there’s a fascinating world out there just waiting to be explored. In the coming months your baby will reach a whole lot of new physical milestones, sitting up unsupported, crawling, standing up and lots more. The Combiotic stage 2 range from HiPP is perfectly tailored to meet your little once growth and development. HiPP Bio Combiotic stage 2 is suitable from 6 months onwards. Read on to find out what makes the composition of stage 2 suitable for your baby’s development in these coming months:
Iron, Calcium and Vitamin D
The HiPP formulas are exactly tailored to your baby’s nutritional requirements at each respective age. The biggest difference between stage 1 and 2 is the need for iron and increased calcium needs.
Iron is a mineral that babies and children need for good health and development. Red blood cells contain hemoglobin, a protein that carries oxygen to all cells in the body. If you have insufficient iron your body can’t carry enough oxygen to the organs and muscles. Because the natural iron deposits in your baby tend to deplete by 6 months of age the increased level of iron present in HiPP Combiotics stage 2 is needed to keep up the healthy iron level. Calcium is needed for strong bones. Both an increase in Iron and Calcium are needed to support the physical milestones your little one is aiming to reach.
Protein composition – casein and whey
The protein composition in the HiPP stage 1 Infant formula contributes to the prevention of childhood obesity as is perfectly in line with the protein found in breastmilk. This is 40% casein and 60% whey. According to experts and studies this protein composition is closer to the physiological needs of an infant younger than 6 months.
Once your little one is starting to become more active the protein intake need also increases. Hipp Combiotic stage 2 has a protein mix of 60% casein and 40% whey. This makes the formula more filling for babies ever though they are getting the same number of ounces per bottle. Because your baby is moving more this extra energy is very welcome and supports the physiological development.
You can begin feeding your baby HiPP stage 2 as soon as they turn 6 months of age. When you have a very active baby at an earlier age and he/she is often hungry it is also an option to start giving your baby stage 2 at an earlier stage to keep your baby satisfied and give them more energy. It is very important to realize that each baby is unique.
