    Discover the Holle A2 Formula Difference

    For little ones who enjoy the slightly sweet and creamy taste of cow’s milk, Holle A2 baby formula provides the familiar flavor of cow’s milk but is enhanced by gentle features that are easily tolerated by sensitive stomachs.

    Holle A2 Stage 2 utilizes a unique variety of cow’s milk that’s exclusively based on A2 proteins. Studies reveal that A2 milk offers a more comfortable alternative to conventional cow’s milk by helping to alleviate the digestive intolerance linked with A1 proteins.

    Both Holle A2 formula and human milk are entirely based on A2 proteins, emulating the composition of breast milk. This makes Holle A2 Stage 2 an ideal choice for breastfed babies, allowing for a seamless transition and optimal nutrition.

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

    Bottle Buzz: Feedback About Holle A2 Stage 2

    Customers agree that Holle A2 formula has been an invaluable solution for little ones prone to tummy troubles. 

    “Wow. I had heard that A2 milk is easier to digest, so we gave this a try. Our baby's gassiness disappeared completely within days of switching to this milk. It’s been a couple of months now, and her gas is still gone!”
    -
    Susan O. Holle A2 Stage 2 customer

    Testimonials explain how convenient and gentle this formula is, making mealtimes a breeze. Parents also expressed that their little ones experienced reduced discomfort after meals once they switched to Holle A2. Our customers rated this formula an impressive 5/5 stars!

    Unique Features of Holle A2 Stage 2 Formula

    1. Improved digestion ✨ - One study discovered that switching toddlers from regular cow's milk to A2 milk significantly reduced reports of constipation and gastrointestinal distress in only 1-2 weeks, highlighting the digestive benefits of A2 proteins. 
    2. Reduced inflammation 🪶 - Many infants find A2 milk easier to digest due to the absence of BCM-7, an inflammatory peptide released in our bodies when we ingest A1 milk but not A2 milk. 
    3. Immune-boosting vitamins ↗️ - Compared to Holle A2 Stage 1, this formula offers increased amounts of vitamin A, which is important for your baby’s immune function, vision, and overall skin health.
    4. Sustained energy⚡ - In addition to lactose, Holle A2 Stage 2 adds corn-derived maltodextrin for a quick supply of energy and starch to create creamy and filling milk. Some experts believe that starch is the most important energy source for human nutrition.

    Holle A2 Stage 2 formula is an organic follow-on formula suitable from 6 months of age as a substitute for or complement to breast milk. It is designed to be fed alongside your baby’s weaning diet.

    Throughout early infancy, Holle A2 Stage 1 offers gentle nourishment for babies before moving on to Stage 2. At around 12 months, toddlers may benefit from the nutritional profile of Holle A2 Stage 3.

    Important Notes

    Breast milk is the most beneficial nourishment for your baby. Holle A2 Stage 2 can be fed to babies starting at 6 months as part of a mixed diet. 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.
