    Discover the Holle Bio Difference

    Holle baby formula takes a minimalist approach to infant nutrition, relying on a short list of wholesome ingredients that are thoughtfully selected and sustainably sourced.

    A standout feature of Holle PRE is its Demeter-certified cow’s milk. With the strictest organic standards, Demeter ensures chemical-free agriculture and animal welfare for clean, ethical nutrition. Holle Bio PRE is crafted to imitate human milk and uses pure lactose as the main carbohydrate. 

    Lactose provides infants with 40% of their energy requirements and has also been found by researchers to promote mineral absorption and gut health, making Holle PRE well-suited to delicate newborn tummies.

    Sip & Share: Feedback About Holle PRE Formula

    Many customers agree that this simple formulation is well tolerated by little ones and easy to prepare, making formula feeding a breeze. 

    “When we switched to Holle, all of my son's digestive issues just went away. It’s also super easy to mix and smells and tastes great. Highly recommend it to any mom looking for formula similar to breast milk.”
    -
    Susan S. Holle infant formula Stage PRE customer

    Feedback from Holle customers is overwhelmingly positive. Many claim that their little ones experienced reduced discomfort after meals, which provided relief from common stomach troubles like reflux, constipation, and gas. Reviewers gave it a perfect 5 stars on our shop.

    Unique Features of Holle Bio PRE

    1. Clean Demeter cow’s milk 🐮 - Demeter cows receive 100% organic fodder and access to fresh air year-long. Plus, dehorning is prohibited, which retains higher levels of vitamin E and omega-3 and 6 fatty acids in the milk. 
    2. Short ingredient list 📝 - Holle PRE is crafted with a minimal number of strictly controlled organic and biodynamic ingredients, which is beneficial for little ones with mild food sensitivities and fussiness.
    3. Plant-based DHA🌿 - Holle PRE formula features an optimally balanced fatty acid profile that satisfies the latest infant nutrition recommendations. Additionally, to enhance their sustainability initiatives, the DHA comes from algae instead of fish oil, resulting in a milder flavour.
    4. Gentle lactose base 🥛 - In Holle PRE, lactose is the main carbohydrate source, similar to breast milk. This macronutrient serves as the primary energy source for your baby, supports brain tissue formation, and is thought to be easier to digest than complex carbohydrates. 

    Holle organic infant formula Stage PRE is suitable from birth as a complete source of nutrition. It can supplement or replace breastfeeding as needed. 

    Holle Stage PRE and Holle Stage 1 are both crafted for babies in early infancy. Once your little one reaches 6 months, they can progress to Holle Stage 2, and later, we offer Holle Stage 3 and Holle Stage 4.

    If you would like to explore other formula options, we have a wide selection of Holle formulas. Additionally, you can receive personalized recommendations through our comprehensive formula finder quiz. Our customer care team is one click away should you require further assistance.

    2.

    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.

    The recommended drinking amount and number of bottles per day are general guidelines only. Your baby does not have to drink the bottle completely. Individual deviations are completely normal.

    Important Notes

    Breast milk is the most beneficial nourishment for your baby. Holle Stage PRE is suitable from birth to 6 months. 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.
