Offering new parents top-quality European infant formula from renowned brands like HiPP, Holle, Kendamil, and more. If you’re uncertain about which product to choose, our Formula Finder can help you make the best decision for your baby.
Based on the latest scientific research on breast milk, HiPP infant formula experts have developed a new generation of HiPP formula Stage 1 to best meet the nutritional needs of infants. HiPP formulas have been tried, tested and continuously improved for over a century, with years of innovation and knowledge going into each product.
In each HiPP newborn formula, you will find a combination of simple yet effective ingredients that are consciously included to nourish your child with many of the benefits of breast milk without the need for breastfeeding.
HiPP Stage 1 Features - Advanced Protective Complex Inspired by the Natural Composition of Breast Milk:
HiPP's Organic Combiotic infant formulas are meticulously crafted with only the best ingredients for babies. After birth, their delicate digestive system requires simple nutrition, which is why HiPP has created an infant milk formula inspired by the natural composition of human milk.
The basis of HiPP formula stage 1 is certified organic skim milk, making this organic formula creamy, filling and gentle on a baby's stomach.
In addition to milk, you will also find a range of vitamins in HiPP baby milk, such as vitamins A, Vitamin D, and Vitamin C, as well as minerals, including Iron and Calcium, to ensure the harmonious development of your child.
Here are some of the key ingredients used to mimic the nutritional composition of human milk:
Probiotics - HiPP formula contains probiotic cultures of lactobacillus L. fermentum, which are naturally found in breast milk. These cultures form the normal intestinal microflora of the baby and support healthy digestion.
Prebiotics - Human milk contains oligosaccharides, which are prebiotics. They support the development of probiotics and the intestinal microflora. In their organic formula, HiPP uses galacto-oligosaccharides (GOS) that are sourced from lactose and are a natural component of human milk oligosaccharides.
LCP - Long-chain polyenes (LCP) are a mixture of essential fatty acids similar to those in breast milk. They are an essential part of vision and brain development.
Nucleotides - Nucleotides, which are naturally found in human milk, play an essential part in the growth and development of a child. Clinical studies suggest that the inclusion of dietary nucleotides in infant formula helps to mature and develop the intestinal tract as well as support immune function.
Stage 1 Baby Formula For Little Tummies
The first year of life is a time of immense change and transformation for both you and your little one. As your child grows and develops, so will their nutritional needs. That is why HiPP formula is deliberately divided into stages to ensure that your child's growth is supported through sufficient nutritional values and essential nutrients.
HiPP organic formula Stage 1 is suitable from 0-6 months and is intended to be used as a sole source of nutrition if your child is strictly formula-fed or can be used for supplementary feedings if they are also breastfed.
The main difference between HiPP Stages 1 and 2 is the amount of starch and lactose. Since babies need fewer calories, HiPP has intentionally left out starch in the early stages to make this formula gentle on tiny tummies.
HiPP's Comprehensive Range of Baby Formula Ensures an Ideal Fit for Your Infant's Nutritional Requirements
HiPP is well-known for their impressive variety of baby formula options. In this section, we explore the nuances of the different country versions and special formulas offered by HiPP to help guide you toward the right HiPP European formula for your baby.
Difference between HiPP Stage 1 formulas
To cater the country-specific preferences and legal regulations, HiPP has crafted three unique organic formula lines: HiPP German, HiPP Dutch, and HiPP UK.
Rest assured that you will find the same great quality in each line, with minor adjustments made to accommodate regional preferences and regulations. Regardless of which version you choose, you can feel confident in knowing that all HiPP baby formulas, with the exception of their specialty formulas, are certified organic by the European Union.
HiPP Bio Combiotik Formula Dutch, German & UK
• HiPP UK Stage 1 is made in Germany and packaged in the UK. The UK version of HiPP Stage 1 formula is starch-free and contains all of the nutrients mentioned above except probiotics.
• HiPP Dutch Stage 1 is made in Germany, but it is packed in the Netherlands. HiPP Dutch formula is starch-free and is enriched with lactobacillus fermentum hereditum®, which are natural probiotic lactic acid cultures originally extracted from real breast milk.
• HiPP German Stage 1 is both made and packaged in Germany. HiPP Combiotic Stage 1 formula is free of maltodextrin and contains mild organic starch to create a smooth, creamy-textured organic formula. It also contains lactobacillus fermentum hereditum® probiotics.
HiPP Goat Milk Formula Stage 1
For parents seeking an alternative to cow's milk formula, HiPP also offers a gentle and reliable goat milk formula. The quality of this formula is consistent with all other HiPP products, which means that throughout the production process, HiPP Stage 1 formula is made without the use of GMOs, harmful pesticides, hormones and steroids, or antibiotics (unless necessary for the animal's health).
HiPP goat milk has a base of organic skimmed goat milk and is especially gentle due to its simple A2 milk protein structure and natural inclusion of prebiotic galacto-oligosaccharides (GOS), which support the digestive system and boost the immune system.
To keep this formula extra gentle, HiPP Goat Stage PRE is free from both starch and maltodextrin and instead relies on lactose as the main carbohydrate. It is also packed full of nutrients such as vitamin D, A, and E, minerals, and essential fatty acids (DHA and ARA).
Special Formulas From HiPP
HiPP also offers various products which are specially formulated for babies who need a little extra dietary support. These formulas are typically used in circumstances where a standard cow's or goat's milk formula is not suitable. Specialty formulas are only to be used after consultation with a doctor to help you determine which HiPP formula to use.
HiPP Comfort (German)
HiPP Comfort is formulated to address common digestive-related issues such as lactose-related 3-month colic, flatulence, and constipation from birth. It offers relief through reduced lactose content, hydrolyzed milk proteins, and the inclusion of probiotic lactic acid cultures and prebiotics to support healthy digestion. This formula can also be used to regulate or loosen stool and promote healthy bowel movements. Importantly, this formula is suitable for babies from birth to 12 months old as it is an all-stage formulation.
HiPP Anti-Reflux (German)
HiPP Anti-Reflux is another all-stages formula made to help manage reflux and regurgitation from birth to 12 months. While most babies outgrow this tendency once their digestive systems have matured, this unique formulation is here to help in the meantime. The inclusion of a natural thickening agent derived from carob fruit is designed to reduce regurgitation and vomiting while also acting as a natural dietary fiber. This means that your baby's stool may become softer when using the formula.
HiPP HA (German and Dutch) Stage 1
HiPP makes hypoallergenic formulas in both German and Dutch versions. Both offer a base of extensively hydrolyzed cow milk proteins that are low in allergens alongside a combination of prebiotics and probiotics. This formula is gentle and effective at reducing allergic reactions in babies with milk protein sensitivities. If your little one has a suspected or diagnosed cow's milk protein allergy (CMPA), further consultation with a doctor is recommended to determine whether this formula is right for them.
