    Discover the Holle Cow Difference

    With 90 years of excellence behind them, Holle sets the gold standard for clean infant nutrition. They surpass conventional European standards by crafting baby formula with the Demeter certification, the highest organic standard internationally.

    Holle formula Stage 1 features a short list of wholesome ingredients, like Demeter cow's milk, and a host of vitamins and minerals designed to support your baby’s development. This formula also boasts a simple lactose base to supply breast milk-like benefits. 

    Lactose is an important nutrient for infants, supplying 40% of their energy needs in human milk. Studies have also found that it enhances gut health and mineral absorption, offering optimal nourishment for sensitive newborn bellies. 

    Sip & Share: Feedback About Holle Bio Stage 1

    Our reviews consistently share that Holle Stage 1 helps ease babies’ tummy troubles, making formula feeding a stress-free experience.

    “Our son was extremely colicky and would push the bottle away. Then a friend told us about Holle, and everything changed. No more pain, and his stool appears much healthier. European formulas really are the best.”
    Robert H. Holle Bio Stage 1 customer

    We often hear from parents that Holle has been great at minimizing bloating, gas, and spit-up, helping little ones feel more comfortable. Plus, they feel good knowing their babies are being fed a high-quality formula. Our customers have given this milk a perfect 5 stars!

    Unique Features of Holle Stage 1 Formula 

    1. Milk from Demeter farms 🐮 - Demeter-reared cows have continuous access to fresh air, are fed exclusively organic fodder, and are not dehorned. This humane treatment yields more omega fatty acids and vitamin E in the milk for enhanced nutrition.
    2. Only with lactose 🥛 - Holle Stage 1 has no starch or maltodextrin to closely mimic human milk. In breast milk, lactose represents the bulk of the carbs, which supply babies with energy to fuel growth and support brain tissue formation. Stage 1 also offers slightly more energy, fat, and protein than Stage PRE.
    3. Minimal ingredients📝 - Holle formula features a short list of organic ingredients that are strictly controlled for quality assurance. This minimalist approach is particularly suited to fussy babies and those with mild sensitivities to certain foods.  
    4. Without fish oil 🐟❌ - In lieu of fish oil, Holle Bio Stage 1 contains a balanced fatty acid profile featuring algae oil as a plant-based DHA source. Not only does this give the formula a milder taste, but it also upholds Holle's commitment to sustainability.

    Holle Stage 1 organic infant formula is suitable from birth until 6 months of age as a complete nutrition source. It may supplement breastfeeding or be used exclusively for formula feeding.

    Holle Stage PRE and Holle Stage 1 are specially crafted for early infancy. As your little one gets older, you can switch them to Holle Stage 2 at the 6-month mark and Holle Stage 3 at 10 months. Starting at one year, Holle Stage 4 offers nutrition tailored for toddlers.

    If you are considering other options, we have an extensive range of Holle formulas. We also offer a formula finder quiz that provides personalized product recommendations. Should you have any questions on your feeding journey, our customer care team is only a click away.
