The HiPP formula stage 2 is for babies from 6 months onward – a natural and complete follow on milk which is specifically designed to fit your babies nutritious needs at this stage in live.
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 is a fascinating world out there just waiting to be explored. In the coming months, your baby can reach a whole lot of new physical milestones, sitting up unsupported, crawling, standing up, and lots more. The HiPP stage 2 range is well-tailored so that it can meet your little once growth and development. HiPP formula stage 2 is suitable from 6 months onwards. Read on to find out what can make the composition of stage 2 suitable for your baby’s development in these coming months:
The HiPP formulas are 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 could 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 might not be able to carry enough oxygen to the organs and muscles. Because the natural iron deposits in your baby tend to deplete by six months of age, the increased level of iron present in HiPP formula stage 2 is helpful to keep up a healthy iron level. Calcium helps for strong bones. Both an increase in Iron and Calcium are good to support the physical milestones your little one is aiming to reach.
The protein composition in the HiPP stage 1 Infant formula can contribute to the prevention of childhood obesity as it is in line with the protein found in breastmilk, 40% casein, and 60% whey. According to experts and studies this protein composition is close 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. This is when your baby reaches the age of 6 months and older.
Hipp formula stage 2 has a protein mix of 60% casein and 40% whey. This makes the formula more filling for babies even though they are getting the same number of ounces per bottle. Your baby is most likely moving more, so this extra energy is very welcome and supports physiological development.
Some of the other reasons why we love HiPP stage 2:
We offer two HiPP formula stage 2, the Dutch and the German version. The differences between these two formulas across the most important ingredients are:
There are two ingredients that are present in the German formula that is not in the Dutch version, namely soy and starch. The absents of these two ingredients in the HiPP stage 2 Dutch range make this, for many parents, the favorable between the two.
You can begin feeding your baby HiPP formula 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 so important to realize that each baby is unique.

Amazing service. So quick with tracked delivery and excellent communication from the Company. Very reliable.
My son is a completely breastfed baby and would not take any other formula to wean off! But he loves this formula and I’m so happy we ordered it. Thanks for making it accessible.

From the first order on, they were so communicative. I’ve purchased twice now and I couldn’t be more pleased with both the product, speed of arrival and service.

After doing a lot of research, we chose Hipp due to it’s focus on organic, natural ingredients and avoidance of products like soy & hydrogenated oils. We love this formula, our 10 months old tolerated it without any issues and it’s the perfect way to transition her from breast milk. shipping was fast and communication was excellent. Sarah from the customer service team is so great thank you, you rock!! We would order from Organic Formula Shop again!, these guys exceed shipment and storage standards which results in amazing quality. Highly recommend them!

First time ordering from OFS.com and wish I would’ve found them sooner. I received shipment updates soon after ordering. The prices are the lowest in the market compared to other leading European formula distributors. Also, according to a reputable Formula blog, these guys exceed shipment and storage standards which results in amazing quality. Highly recommend them!
