Frequently Asked Questions
Why do you offer these formula products and not ones available in most grocery stores?
We offer a wide variety of organic formulas sourced from all over the world, but mainly from Europe as the EU organic standards are considered to be the leading standards in the world. We understand that parents prefer to have a selection of organic infant milk formula products to choose from when selecting the best source of nutrition available, regardless of where it is sourced and manufactured. MyOrganicFormula.com strives to offer only the best formulas that were tested by our own son.
We guarantee that all products are organic so you can buy with complete peace of mind. Every baby is different, so you may need to try a couple of formulas to find the one that’s right for your little one, but only after consulting with a doctor. If you prefer to buy based on feedback from other parents, both Loulouka and HiPP organic formulas are bestsellers in our store.
Are your products compliant to rules and regulations?
All products that we sell on My Organic Formula are European organic infant food products. These products fully meet the standards applicable in the European Union.
It is the responsibility of our customers to check if the products meet the standards of their own local market. When in doubt, consult your pediatrician.
My Doctor recommended a different formula. Why should I consider any other or even Foreign Formula instead?
We understand your concerns and would recommend taking the doctor's advice seriously! There is, however, no harm in discussing different options with your child's pediatrician. If you read the ingredients of some of the most mass-produced baby formulas, you will find that the most common one is corn syrup. Essentially, you are feeding your baby processed and genetically modified sugar. The organic infant milk baby formulas offered by us provide all the nutrition your baby needs to grow healthy without unneeded sugar, pesticides, herbicides, and genetically modified ingredients.
How Are Holle Lebenswert & Demeter Different?
Lebenswert stage 1 contains lactose instead of maltodextrin. Another difference between the two is that Lebenswert has organic certification from Bioland instead of Demeter. Bioland is a very reputable certification company that upholds its own set of high organic standards.
I Heard That DHA Is Very Important For My Baby. What is DHA?
If you have done any research, chances are high that you would have found warnings about saturated fatty acids and the promotion of mono and polyunsaturated fatty acids.
However, infants under a year old metabolize nutrients differently than adults and older children. Fatty acids contained in human breast milk are mostly saturated. To closely mimic the composition of human breast milk and meet legal requirements, Holle uses palm oil in infant milk formulas. Palm oil is one of the very few vegetable oils that are rich in saturated fatty acids. Many other vegetable oils are high in mono or polyunsaturated fatty acids. Using palm oil in the mixture with grape seed oil and sunflower oil offers your baby a complete, wholesome profile of fatty acids and meets all of his or her nutritional requirements.
Are Palm And Grape Seed Safe For My Baby?
If you have done any research on this topic, the chances are good that your found warnings regarding saturated fatty acids and promotion of mono- and polyunsaturated fatty acids.
However, infants under a year old metabolize nutrients differently than adults and older children. Fatty acids contained in human breast milk are mostly saturated. To closely mimic the composition in human breast milk and to meet legal requirements, Holle relies on the use of palm oil in the fat mixture for their infant formulas. Palm oil is one of very few vegetable oils rich in saturated fatty acids. Many other vegetable oils are high in mono or polyunsaturated fatty acids. Using palm oil in the mixture with grape seed oil and sunflower oil, offers your baby a complete, wholesome profile of fatty acid and meets all of his or her nutritional requirements.
What Is Maltodextrin And Why Does My Baby Need It?
Maltodextrin is an unsweetened and medium complex carbohydrate derived from starch. The amount and the composition of carbohydrates in infant milk formulas are legally regulated, and a minimum amount of carbohydrates is required. Without the use of maltodextrin, the baby formula would contain more lactose (milk sugar) and have a sweeter taste.
Some infants are sensitive to high doses of lactose and suffer from colic issues when lactose enters the lower parts of the digestive tract. The mild complex structure of maltodextrin makes it easy to digest. Since this complex structure is slower to release energy, it satisfies your baby’s appetite for longer. Maltodextrin is scientifically approved as an accepted ingredient in infant formulas with no disadvantages.
How Many Servings Are Contained In One Box?
The number of servings in one box depends on the size and the brand of the baby formula you select. For example, HiPP Stage 1 contains 600g of infant formula, while Holle Stage 1 contains 400g of prepared formula.
Can I Keep My Baby On Stage 1 For The First Year To Save Money?
To provide your baby all the vital nutrition he/she needs to grow and thrive, we recommend that you switch your baby to the age-appropriate formula as they grow. Babies need certain levels of nutrients at different stages of their development. Holle has worked hard for over 85 years to develop its products to meet your baby's growing needs. You will find that Stage 1 has less formula than Stage 2, 3, and 4 so, Stage 1 is slightly more expensive than the older stages because you will need more of that formula for your little one.
How Quickly Should Prepared Formula Be Used?
We would advise you to use a bottle within an hour if it is left sitting at room temperature. Do not reheat mixed formula milk. Instructions for use also come with every box so, please make sure you read them carefully before preparing milk for your child.
Am I Able To Pre-Prepare Formula For Use Later?
We would recommend to prepare your Baby's formula fresh every time. But if you need to prepare in advance due to any reason, you can boil more water, let it cool down a bit, and pour it in a thermos for later use. You can then quickly prepare milk for your child by mixing the formula with water in the thermos.
Do not forget to check the temperature of the infant milk!
What’s The Best Way To Store Dry Formula? How Quickly Do I Need To Use It Once Opened?
We recommend storing your organic baby formula in an airtight container. The brands we sell do not contain preservatives, so if exposed to air, the product quality can degrade faster than baby formulas that contain preservatives. Organic baby formula can stay fresh in an airtight container for approximately one month. You can also read the instructions that come with every box for more details.
