My 4 month old daughter had no problem switching to formula thanks to Holle. She would not take any other one. The product clearly tastes good and I’m reassured that there are no nasty ingredients and it’s sustainably sourced for the most part. So a big thumbs up for Holle!

he loves it. it does make him a bit constipated, and poops are a but thick, but he poops nonetheless. compared to when he was on Enfamil, even when I mixed it with breastmilk, he hated it and would jus toss it around his mouth, most times he wont finish it. with Holle, he eats it all in one sitting.

Product Information

Is this product right for my baby?
Making the leap to formula can be scary, but luckily Holle has been putting moms’ at ease since 1933. Holle Bio Stage 1 Infant Formula is perfect for 0 to 6-month-olds transitioning to bottle feeding or starting from Day 1.

Some formulas can cause awful flatulence and gas pains, but most babies take to Holle with ease. It’s gentle on the tummy and easy to absorb, and because it’s formulated to help your baby feel full longer, they’ll be more likely to sleep through the night.

You won’t find it listed on the box, but Holle’s main “ingredient” is peace of mind - the peace of mind knowing that you’re giving your baby the best.

How to prepare and store

Holle infant formulas dissolve quickly and can be prepared in minutes. Preparation instructions are included in every package so it’s easy to follow along.

How to Prepare Fresh

Step 1: Boil water and allow to cool to about 50 °C / 122 °F

Step 2: Fill roughly half the bottle with boiled water

Step 3: Use the measuring spoon provided and add the correct number of scoops (1 scoop per fluid ounce of water). Spoonfuls should be flat, not heaping

Step 4: Close the bottle and shake until powder is completely dissolved

Step 5: Fill the remaining half of the bottle and shake again until the powder is evenly diluted

Step 6: Allow to cool to about 37 °C / 98.6 °F

Step 7: Squeeze a drop onto your forearm to test the temperature before feeding
How to Refrigerate and Store Prepared Formula:

Need to plan ahead and prepare some formula for later? No problem! Simply refrigerate the formula in temperatures below 41° F/5° C. Keep in mind that the longer you store, the more opportunity there is for harmful bacteria to grow. It’s always best to use within 2-3 hours of preparation.

How to Reheat Prepared Formula:

Prepared formula can easily be rewarmed by placing the tightly sealed feeding container into a separate container of warm water. Occasionally shake and swirl the feeding container to ensure that it heats evenly.

How to Store Opened Package of Dry Formula:

After opening, reseal the pouch and store in the original cardboard box, or use a sealable storage container. When stored properly, Holle Infant Milk Formulas can last up to 21 days.

  • Frequently Asked Questions

    Who is Holle Stage 1 formula best for?
    Holle Bio Stage 1 Infant Formula is ideal for babies aged 0 to 6 months. If you’ve tried conventional formula and found your baby struggled to digest it, you might find that Holle is the gentle alternative you need.
    Is Holle Stage 1 safe?
    If there was an Olympics for baby food safety, Holle might win the gold. They have a Demeter biodynamic agriculture certification, and all Holle formula contains ZERO antibiotics, hormones, pesticides, herbicides, synthetic ingredients or genetically modified organisms (GMOS). Holle Stage 1 is also gluten-free, wheat-free, soy-free, peanut-free and sugar-free.
    Does Holle Stage 1 support healthy brain development?
    Yes! Holle Stage 1 contains DHA and ARA to support neural tissues and boost cognitive performance. Some studies show that breastfed babies have higher IQs due to the DHA and ARA in breast milk. Luckily, Holle Stage 1 contains plenty of both!
    Is Holle Stage 1 good for sensitive tummies?
    Holle Stage 1 is gentle on the gut. It contains ZERO starch, soy, gluten, added sugars or artificial preservatives, flavors or colorings. Instead of complex starches, it contains maltodextrin, a shorter-chain carb that’s easier to break down. If your baby’s reacted poorly to conventional formula in the past, Holle Bio Stage 1 may suit them better.
    Does Holle Stage 1 support stronger immunity?
    Holle Stage 1 supports immunity with vitamins A, C, D and B-12, as well as key electrolytes like potassium, magnesium and calcium. Vitamin C is a master antioxidant that protects the cells from inflammation, while B-12 activates immune cells and boosts energy. At the same time, electrolytes guard against dehydration: one of the leading causes of weakened immunity. Holle is also free of added sugars, which are proven to damage the immune system.
    How much formula is in each package?
    Each box of Holle Bio Stage 1 contains 400 grams of formula powder and makes roughly 100 fl oz (3 liter) of prepared formula. Depending on your baby’s appetite, that should last about 30 feedings.
    I heard that maltodextrin is a useless filler. Why does Holle Stage 1 use it?
    Although some internet sources suggest that maltodextrin is a useless filler/sweetener, this couldn’t be further from the truth. Maltodextrin is actually an easy-to-digest carb and is only mildly sweet. Holle uses a special type of maltodextrin that’s even slower to digest so it keeps your baby full longer.
    Holle Stage 1 and Holle Pre are both for newborns. What’s the difference?
    The difference is in the carbohydrates. Holle Stage 1 uses maltodextrin as the main source of carbs, while Holle Pre contains more lactose. Both are exceptional formulas and it’s really a matter of personal preference which one you choose.
    What’s the difference between Holle Stage 1 and Stage 2 formulas?
    Holle’s first and second stage infant formulas are nutritionally almost the same. The only real difference is the ratio of proteins. Stage 2 is designed for hungrier babies so it contains more casein protein to keep them full longer, while Stage 1 contains more whey and less casein.
    How much formula should I order?
    At My Organic Formula, you can buy in bulk and save up to 15%. Your baby’s appetite can change pretty quickly, so it’s always a good idea to have extra formula on hand.
    What are the benefits of ordering a monthly subscription?
    Ordering a monthly subscription is the easiest and most convenient way to stay stocked up on baby formula. It’ll mean fewer trips to the grocery store and fewer online purchases, so you’ll have more time to squeeze in that power nap. Plus, you’ll receive an additional 5% discount per package.
    When will I receive my order?
    Orders with free shipping arrive in an average of 2-7 business days.
