Yeah! We’re ready for the next stage. Babies will usually transition to Stage 2 formula at about six months of age. This is a time when they’re learning to crawl, moving around a lot, and staying up more hours of the day. 

As with all Holle formulas, Holle Stage 2 is made from organic ingredients that meet strict European organic standards. There are ingredients added to aid digestion and absorption of the nutrients.

The basis of all formulas, milk, is different in Holle formulas. The milk comes from cows that have been treated well. They aren’t dehorned, which is painful and has been shown to change the milk's nature. They’re fed 100% organic feed and are allowed to graze in fields every day.

WHY WE LOVE IT 

  • Designed for babies from 6 months
  • Contains a complete nutritional profile
  • The perfect complement to solid foods
  • Works as a breastmilk replacement or between breastfeedings
  • Demeter milk from happy cows
  • Organic ingredients
  • Nutritionally balanced

Stage 2 is a busy time for babies. They are learning to move about in their world. Stage 2 formulas, which often start as early as four months to six months, are designed to be added to solid food's beginnings and can complement breast milk.

Holle’s farms adhere to strict Demeter farming standards. This is a set of guidelines that regulate what a farmer can do, how often fields are rotated, even how much fresh air cows must-have. As organic standards go, these are among the strictest in the world.

No Holle formula contains any genetically modified (GMO) ingredients. While there might be some debate as to whether GMO foods are as safe as everyone tries to make them out to be, in Europe, GMOs have been banned, particularly in organic foods. These rules apply doubly to baby food.
