In general, babies eat when they're hungry and stop when they're full. Appetites vary among babies, and each baby's nutritional needs change from day to day and month to month. That may sound complicated, but if you follow the feeding charts printed on each box and check in regularly with your baby's doctor, your baby will likely be on track. 

2. WHAT ARE THE DIFFERENCES BETWEEN THE STAGES?

 

The primary difference between our Infant-Formula (stage 1) and Follow-On Formula (stage 2,3,4) is the balance of milk proteins. Both formulas have whey and casein proteins, but in different proportions.

There is also an increase in iron and filling ingredients such as starch to help wean off of formula and introduce more solid foods in the later stages.

Stages marked as PRE should not be confused with Premie or Preterm Birth. PRE milk formulas normally contain no starch so you are able to feed more to your baby on a 3 hour schedule.

3. SHOULD I MOVE UP IN THE STAGES?

 

As a child grows and changes, so do his nutritional requirements. To ensure your baby is getting all of the nutrients he needs to grow and thrive, we highly recommend you use the stage of formula that corresponds with his age. Formula manufacturers like Hipp and Holle have spent many years perfecting formulations to ensure every stage of your baby’s dietary needs is met.

Please note that there is not much difference in the later stages that would warrant a switch on a specific date. You can move forward, or behind a few weeks.
