HiPP Combiotic stage 3 – tailored to your toddlers needs
Your baby’s first birthday has arrived and is now officially a toddler. In just one year time your baby has developed from a completely helpless newborn to an independent little person. Your baby’s weight has likely tripled since birth and they have grown about 9 to 11 inches taller. The HiPP Combiotic stage 3 formula is tailored so that it can meet your little ones growth and development at this age. Read on to find out what makes the composition of stage 3 formula suitable for your baby’s development in this coming year:
Iron, Calcium & vitamin D
The biggest difference between stage 2 and stage 3 HiPP Combiotic is the calcium amount present in the formula. Calcium becomes more important as the bones of your little one is growing.
Vitamin D is also important as it helps with the absorption of calcium and therefore also helps with bone growth. When comparing Hipp Organic Growing-up milk to cows’ milk it contains 40 times more iron than whole cows’ milk does. It helps your little one meet their daily requirement for this essential nutrient.
Besides the physical growth, your baby’s brain has (literally) also grown. HiPP Combiotic stage 3 contains naturally occurring omega 3 fatty acid (alpha-linolenic acid) which can be important for brain and nervous system development.
Protein composition – casein and whey
The need for protein is very much grown in the last year as your toddler is moving and much more active than before. HiPP Combiotic stage 3 has a protein mix of 80% casein and 20% whey and is modeled more like cow’s milk rather than on breast milk. Your toddler might need this extra casein to support the energy level due to their physiological developments.
