In more and more North American households, European formula is becoming normal. Parents seek the best for their baby and want to know what they are giving to their precious little one. Products with high organic production standards and ingredients are becoming the norm.
Parents are moving away from American formulas that often have complicated ingredients lists and are filled with added sugars, soy, and chemicals. European brands such as HiPP and Holle follow the European Union’s strict guidelines and even go beyond these regulations with the very best dynamic farming and gentle animal practices. They are knowns for the complete 100% organic nutrition they provide for your baby.
Another benefit, besides the used organic ingredients, is the labeling for ages. The composition of each of the formulas is developed to meet and support your baby’s development and growth. We will explain the different stages European formulas use below:
For age: 0 to 6 months
These baby formulas are developed for babies from birth up to 6 months of age. Its composition is perfectly tailored to infants’ requirements. The stage 1 European formula range supplies all the important nutrients for healthy development.
HiPP Comfort All Stages for Colic & Constipation
For age: 6 months and older
Your little one is growing and growing. In order to support this growth, the stage 2 range of European formulas is tailored to meet the nutritional requirement of this development. This stage is suitable for babies 6 months and older. Babies this age move more and therefore also burn more calories. Stage 2 formulas from Europe have a higher amount of calories per bottle compared to stage 1 so that the calories keep up with your little ones’ need and they do not grow hungry.
Age – 10 months and older
At 10 months and older your baby is ready to take in more calories as they move so much more at this stage. Here the different formulas differ slightly in age. The Dutch range of HiPP formula is developed for babies ages 12 months and older while the HiPP German and the Holle cow & goat are developed for 10 months and older.
European formulas are designed to fit each stage and nutritious needs of your little one. All formulas are made with clean and organic ingredients with no chemicals, GMO’s or added sugars.
