    Discover the Holle A2 Formula Difference

    Holle A2 formula features a special type of skimmed milk from cows that naturally produce only A2 proteins. Researchers have confirmed that A2 milk reduces the digestive intolerance associated with A1 milk, making it a soothing alternative to conventional cow’s milk formula. 

    But that’s not the only benefit; this infant formula is also structurally closer to breast milk! Human milk naturally contains only A2 milk proteins, which can make this formula a smoother transition for breastfed babies.

    You can count on Holle A2 Stage 1 to provide the same delicious milky taste as any other kind of cow’s milk but with more gentle qualities better suited to sensitive tummies.

    Please note: A2 milk is not suitable for babies with lactose intolerance or cow’s milk protein allergy. 

    Bottle Buzz: Feedback About Holle A2 Baby Formula

    Customers of the Holle A2 range enjoy how simply and gently the formula is made, noting that it eases common tummy troubles.

    “I've tried other formulas; this one seems to work well for my baby. She no longer cries from gas pain, is not as constipated, and doesn't spit up nearly as much! It has the viscosity of and tastes similar to breast milk!”

    Jade C. Holle A2 formula Stage 1 customer

    Parents praise Holle A2 milk for its mild taste and creamy texture. We have received feedback expressing that this gentle formula was a lifesaver while making the switch from breastfeeding. Our customers rated this A2 formula an impressive 4.9 out of 5 stars.

    Unique Features of Holle A2 Stage 1 Formula

    1. 100% lactose base 💯 - Holle A2 Stage 1 only contains lactose as a source of carbs. Over 1/3 of a newborn's calorie intake comes from lactose, which offers energy for growth and development. Current evidence suggests it also plays a role in promoting bone development and gut health.
    2. Enhances digestive comfort ✅ - A recent study found that when toddlers were fed A2 formula instead of conventional cow’s milk, reports of constipation and overall gastrointestinal distress were significantly reduced after only 1-2 weeks.
    3. Less inflammatory 🪶 - When A1 milk is digested, it releases an inflammatory peptide known as BCM-7. Because no BCM-7 is produced when digesting A2 milk, many babies can tolerate Holle A2 better. 
    4. Gentle whey powder 🥛 - The second ingredient in Holle A2 Stage 1 is whey powder. When compared to casein, whey proteins are easier to digest as they stay liquid when they enter the belly and pass through the stomach more quickly. 

    Holle A2 Stage 1 is an organic infant formula suitable from birth until 6 months of age. It offers a complete source of nutrition for newborns and is a breast milk alternative that can be used for supplementary feeds or exclusive bottle feeding.

    To provide continued gentle nourishment as your baby grows, we also offer Holle A2 Stage 2 from 6-12 months and Holle A2 Stage 3 from 12 months onward.

    If you're interested in exploring other formula options, we offer a diverse range of Holle formulas for purchase. You can also receive personalized product recommendations by taking our formula finder quiz. Our customer care team is just a click away if you need further assistance.

    Add half of the required water to the bottle.

    3.

    Fill the measuring spoon and level the formula powder on the spoon. Add the advised amount of formula to the bottle.

    4.

    Close the bottle and shake thoroughly.

    5.

    Add the remaining water and shake thoroughly again.

    6.

    Cool to a drinking temperature of approx. 37° C / 98.6° F. Remember to test the temperature before feeding your baby.

    Please follow the preparation instructions exactly. Incorrect preparation and storage could harm your baby.

    Only use the provided measuring spoon - 1 Flattened measuring spoon equals 4.4 g / 0.155 oz.

    Always prepare bottles fresh. Do not reuse leftovers. Do not heat up the formula in the microwave, as this poses the danger of overheating.

    Important Notes

    Breast milk is the most beneficial nourishment for your baby. Holle A2 Stage 1 can be fed to babies beginning from birth. Please consult your pediatrician before introducing this formula to your baby.

    Do not allow your baby to suck on the bottle continuously. Constant contact with liquids containing carbohydrates can lead to tooth decay. Remember to pay special attention to your baby’s dental hygiene once their first tooth has come through.
