Breast Milk - Naturally the Best

Breast Milk - Naturally the Best for Your Baby. Breast milk provides your baby with the optimum mix of nutrients. It can give your baby exactly what he or she needs at any particular time, whether according to your baby's developmental stage or even time of day. Breast milk contains all the essential nutrients and antibodies which are necessary for your baby's development, including a healthy immune system. Intensive contact with your baby through breastfeeding helps your little one to grow well and fosters a close and loving bond with you.

Holle recommends exclusive breastfeeding for the first six months, and further breastfeeding during weaning time as part of a balanced diet, according to your baby's age.

The best start in life

Breast milk is ideal for your baby. Holle milk formulas are developed as closely as possible with breast milk in mind. In this way you can have a good quality, organic alternative for your baby if you decide not to breastfeed, or when you decide to stop breastfeeding. Our Organic Infant Formula 1 is especially formulated for very young babies and contains all necessary nutrients for the first six months of life. All our formulas are made using only milk from biodynamically raised cows. This pure Demeter quality and our strict quality control gives you the peace of mind of a healthy and tasty formula milk you can trust.

Holle Organic Infant Formula 1 can be given exclusively from birth for the first six months, or as a supplement to breastfeeding, as well as whilst weaning onto solid foods. During weaning Holle Infant Formula 1 is ideal as part of a mixed diet.

Baby Formula and Weaning

The time to start weaning your baby or to change from Infant Formula 1 to Follow-on Milk 2 depends entirely on your baby's needs. As long as your baby is happy and full after a feed you can continue to give your usual milk.

After 6 months of age you may start to wean your baby onto solid foods. This means that some bottle feeds are gradually replaced by purées and porridges. At this time you can also change to Follow-on Formula 2 without problems.

Follow-on Formula 2 is to be given as part of a balanced weaning diet of bottle feeds and purées and porridges and is not to be given exclusively. Growing-up Milk 3 is suitable for the increasing nutritional needs of older babies from about 12 months onwards.
