Holle Organic Infant Formula Stage 1 is a top-quality formula that’s perfect for babies from birth to six months. This Holle infant formula contains only a few carefully selected ingredients and no unnecessary additives.


WHY WE LOVE IT: 

   A wholesome substitute for breastfeeding
   Organic milk from cows raised on Demeter-certified farms
   Demeter is the top certification for biodynamic farms, requiring annual renewal, biodiversity and ecosystem preservation, no GMOs, and more
   Formulated for better sleep and healthy cognitive development
   No artificial preservatives, chemicals, flavors, or colors
   Certified organic to European standards (which are stricter than in the US) 
   GMO-free 
   Essential vitamins A, D, C, K and B-Complex
   Higher proportion of high-quality Demeter milk fat, and lower proportion of processed vegetable oils


Similar to Holle Stage 2, Holle Stage 1 is an organic infant formula that features a simple list of ingredients that consists of biodynamic organic skim milk, organic whey powder, organic maltodextrin, DHA, organic vegetable oils, and essential vitamins and minerals. 


This organic infant formula can be used on its own as a complete source of nutrition, or as the ideal supplement to breast milk. Manufactured and packaged in Germany, Holle Organic Stage 1 is completely free from synthetic nutrients and artificial preservatives, coloring, and flavors.  


PERFECT FOR YOU IF: 

   Your baby is 0-6 months old 
   You want a formula at the highest organic standards (Demeter certification)  
   You want a nutritionally complete formula 


Holle is one of the most highly-respected baby formula brands in the world, and this cow’s milk-based formula meets the Demeter standard for organic, biodynamic farming, far surpassing the requirements for organic agriculture in the United States.


Demeter certification requires annual renewal, ensuring that all Demeter farms are committed to biodiversity promotion, ecosystem preservation, and the highest animal welfare standards. Furthermore, the ingredients in Holle Stage 1 are derived entirely from GMO-free and chemical-free agriculture and manufacturing.

Holle Organic Infant Formula Stage 1 is a creamy, filling formula from one of the world’s most respected Demeter-certified organic brands. It’s safe, nutritious and full of brain-healthy fatty acids DHA and ARA. What more could a growing baby ask for? 



The biggest difference between Holle Stage 1 and Holle PRE is maltodextrin or starch. The Holle Stage PRE has NO maltodextrin, but instead substitutes organic lactose to provide additional nutritive content while Holle Stage 1 formula does contain maltodextrin. Both are exceptional formulas and it’s really a matter of personal preference which one you choose.


Making the leap to formula can be scary, but luckily Holle has been putting moms’ at ease since 1933. Holle Stage 1 Infant Formula is perfect for 0 to 6-month-olds transitioning to bottle-feeding or starting from day one. If you’ve tried conventional formula and found your baby struggled to digest it, you might find that Holle is the gentle alternative you need.


Yes! Holle Stage 1 contains DHA and ARA to support neural tissues and boost cognitive performance. Some studies show that breastfed babies have higher IQs due to the DHA and ARA in breast milk. Luckily, Holle Stage 1 contains plenty of both!


Yes! Holle Stage 1 supports immunity with vitamins A, C, D and B-12, as well as key electrolytes like potassium, magnesium and calcium. Vitamin C is a master antioxidant that protects the cells from inflammation, while B-12 activates immune cells and boosts energy. At the same time, electrolytes guard against dehydration: one of the leading causes of weakened immunity. Holle is also free of added sugars, which are proven to damage the immune system.


Holle Stage 1 is gentle on the gut. It contains no starch, soy, gluten, added sugars or artificial preservatives, flavors or colorings. If your baby’s reacted poorly to conventional formula in the past, Holle Stage 1 may suit them better.


Maltodextrin is a plant-based sweetener. The primary characteristics of maltodextrin is its high solubility, easy and rapid digestibility (high glycemic index), and low sweetness. These characteristics work well in baby formula. High solubility means that the powdered formula will dissolve quickly and smoothly, which makes the formula easier for a baby to drink. The use of Maltodextrin in infant formulas is widely accepted and there have been no known disadvantages to consuming formulas with maltodextrin.


We recommend buying our Starter Kits which are specially made to provide you with formula supply for approx. two months. 
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. 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. A lot depends on your baby’s appetite, but following numbers will give us a benchmark. On average, babies will need 2.5 ounces of formula per pound per day. So that average 8-pound newborn will need about 20 ounces of formula per day.


This is an extremely important question. If you do not follow the instructions correctly, you could possibly cause harm to your baby. But don't worry, the preparation of the formula is simple and quick. 

  1. Clean bottle, teat and ring in boiling water for 3 - 5 minutes before use. 
  2. Boil water freshly before each meal and allow to cool down to about 50°C / 122°F Fill approximately half of the boiled water into the cleaned bottle. 
  3. Use the measuring spoon provided and according to the instructions, add the correct number of scoops. Each spoon should be filled flat and not heaping. 
  4. Close the bottle tightly shake until all the powder has completely dissolved. Add remaining water and shake lightly again until the solution is evenly distributed and diluted. 
  5. Allow to cool down (hold the bottle under cold running water or in the refrigerator) to approximately 37°C / 98.6°F before feeding. To prevent burns, test the formula on your forearm to ensure that it is not too hot. Feed immediately. 

Extra Tips: 
  • Only use the scoop provided in the pack. 
  • Do not make feeds weaker or stronger than indicated by adding extra water/scoops, and do not add anything else to milk feeds. 
  • For hygiene, always freshly prepare feeds and do not prepare in advance. Use feeds immediately, and discard leftovers at the end of the feed. 
  • Bottles at room temperature should be used within 2 hours. Bottles in a cooler with ice or a cold pack should be used within 4 hours. Bottles in the fridge should be used within 24 hours. 
  • Do not heat feed in a microwave as hot spots may occur which could cause scalding. - All open formulas should be used within 21 days. All sealed formulas should be used by the expiration date on the box.


Yes. 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 recommend you use the stage of formula that corresponds with his age. European Formula manufacturers have spent many years perfecting formulations to ensure every stage of your baby’s dietary needs is met.

All packages are prepared in Germany and sent out to their destination countries. Delivery costs, therefore, vary according to your country:

We source baby formulas directly from the manufacturers rather than third-party suppliers, so counterfeit products are impossible. All of our formulas are shipped directly from Germany.

🌱CARBON OFFSET FOR SHIPPING:

With your order at OBF24, you can help restore the planet. 


📌 RETURN POLICY: 

If your baby has a bad reaction to a formula you've purchased from OBF24, we will do everything we can to help you find the right option for your little one.

Unfortunately, Organic Baby Formula is excluded from the right to return. As we guarantee that our product is authentic and comes directly from the manufacturer, we cannot take returns, even if they are unopened. We do not restock the formula once it has left our warehouse. This provides security to our customers that the product they receive is authentic and not a counterfeit formula. 



🛃 IMPORT DUTY AND CUSTOMS: 

There is a low chance that customs will charge extra fees. Anyway, customs policies vary widely from country to country. Orders shipped outside the EU may be subject to import taxes, customs duties, and fees. When customs clearance procedures are required, it can cause delays beyond our original delivery estimates. 
OBF24 takes no responsibility regarding the local rules and regulations concerning our sold products for our customers located outside of Germany as that is the recipient's responsibility.
HOLLE
Since the very beginning, over 75 years ago, Holle has focused on naturalness and the use of pesticides or chemical fertilizers is strictly prohibited without any compromises. Today they are still using only raw ingredients grown to biodynamic or organic standards (Demeter) for their premium organic baby food. This is the basis for the exceptional quality of Holle baby food. Healthy and happy cows can graze on lush fields and pastures - free of pesticides or chemical fertilizers. 

Holle is one of the world’s leading baby food brands.

Holle uses only the best ingredients in their cow and goat milk organic formulas. Starting with well-cared-for animals that pasture on lush biodynamic fields, Holle forms the base of their formula with the best milk available. After gentle processing to make the milk suitable for your baby's digestive system, Holle adds oils that contain essential fatty acids, organic maltodextrin, and starch to make the formula creamy and sustaining and all the vitamins and minerals that will make your baby strong and healthy. They never use added sugars, chemicals, preservatives or synthetic ingredients. All of their ingredients are organic and GMO-free.  

Only strictly regulated partners are able to use the Demeter label.  

These regulations are set by the Demeter Society, whose criteria extend far beyond the standard Organic Farming certification. From growing to processing, all stages of production are checked - without any compromises. Foods that carry the Demeter label have been grown to strict biodynamic standards - in harmony with nature. Whether soil, seeds, plants, animals or humans - each element in the agricultural system has its own uniquely important role. Each element supports and strengthens the others and creates a farm that is a natural and self-contained living organism.  

The use of chemical and synthetic pesticides, fertilizers and GM technology is strictly prohibited in Demeter agriculture, as is the addition of questionable ingredients during processing. Grown in harmony with nature, Demeter-certified grains are full of flavor and vitality. Holle only uses whole grains for their porridges. This makes sure your baby gets the most goodness from every mouthful. Holle cooks the grain using the very gentlest of methods and then finely ground them so every Holle porridge can be easily digested by young babies.  

Quality through animal husbandry in a way that is natural to the species.  

Animal husbandry in a natural way to each species affects the composition of the cow's milk. It contains quite a lot of vitamin E and beta carotene. There is a high proportion of valuable omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids in the fat. The taste of Organic Milk is delicious and harmonious due to the proportion of herbs in the feed. 

Holle formula is sold all over the world because the quality is up there with the finest on the planet. In short, if you're looking for the best food to feed your baby for the first few years of life, Holle is one of the few companies you can count on.

My son loves this formula. Feel confident about the quality in comparison to other formulas. The service of OBG24 has been great. They have been helpful with all my questions so far. My last order was running behind and they were able to help track the package and follow up.

Healthier and safer formula for babies!

Great formula! We tried several American formulas before switching my son to this, he was sick on the other ones and felt so much better on holle. We like that there is no high fructose corn syrup.

Our baby was born 10 weeks premature. After mom's breast supply decreased, this is the only formula that we have been able to get her to take and she loves it. This is worth the extra shipping expense to Canada as nothing we can find here compares. Would highly recommend to all new parents.
