Formula Feeding Your Adopted Baby

We are delighted to offer our warmest congratulations to you on the arrival of your precious little one! The journey of parenthood is full of excitement and wonder, and we are honored to be a part of it. As a 100% organic nutrition provider, My Organic Company is dedicated to supporting you and your baby throughout your journey.

 

This article will briefly discuss bottle feeding and provide resources to help you get started.

Benefits to Bottle Feeding

The majority of adoptive parents choose to bottle-feed their new babies. There are many benefits to giving your new little one a baby bottle. One significant benefit of bottle feeding is that you and your spouse or partner can participate in feeding your baby, allowing for bonding.

 

  • Using a baby bottle at feeding time is an excellent way to encourage skin-to-skin contact, eye contact, and the comfort of touch for parents or caregivers. Another benefit is the convenience of quickly having a bottle readily available for a hungry baby.
  •  
  • When attempting to induce lactation for breastfeeding, it may take some time for milk production to start. In such cases, organic European formulas can be a viable solution. The high-quality ingredients present in the formula can provide the necessary nutrients while waiting for lactation and healthy milk production to begin.

Why Choose European Baby Formula?

Not all baby formulas are created equally. European baby formula companies are held to the highest standards. Far surpassing American baby formula companies in ingredients, farming practices, and production standards.

 

You will never find any artificial ingredients, chemicals, or unhealthy farming practices used at any step from soil to factory.

Which European Baby Formula to Choose

When bringing home your sweet little bundle it is more than likely you will not know some or even most of the biological family medical history. Without this information, any food sensitivities or allergies may be unknown.

 

For this reason, we suggest HiPP HA Combiotic Hypoallergenic Organic Infant Formula, HiPP Special Comfort Organic Baby Formula, Hipp Dutch Organic Combiotic Infant Milk Formula, or Holle Goat Milk Organic Baby Formula.

HiPP Hypoallergenic Formula

HiPP HA Stage 1

Age:   0-6 months

 

Size:   600g / 21oz

 

Why Choose?

Prebiotics & Probiotics for healthy digestion, hydrolyzed milk proteins for reduced allergic reactions

Made with 100% organic cow’s milk proteins that are divided into small fragments. This reduces the allergenic properties that can be associated with lactose.

 

Special fiber-based prebiotics and a probiotic from lactic acid bacteria cultures work together to support an infant's digestion. Perfect for sensitive babies or newborns that develop colic.

 

HiPP HA is formulated with vitamins A, C, and D to promote healthy immune function and bone health. Omega-3 and omega-6 (DHA & ARA) are added to aid babies' brain, eye, and muscle development.

HiPP Special Comfort Formula

HiPP Special Comfort

Age:   0 months +

 

Size:   500g / 17.6oz

 

Why Choose?

Prebiotics & Probiotics for healthy digestion, Reduced lactose content, Hydrolzed milk protein

This cow’s milk-based formula is 100% organic and is specially designed for infants who experience colic, constipation, upset tummies, and may be allergy-prone. HiPP Special Comfort has split milk proteins (hydrolyzed) that break the lactose into smaller molecules, making it easier to digest.

 

Much like mother milk, this European baby formula contains Omega-3s and omega-6s (DHA & ARA) to support brain and eye development, as well as Vitamins A and Vitamin C to boost your little one's immune system and added Vitamin D to aid absorption.

 

For optimal comfort, HiPP contains prebiotics and probiotics to support digestion further, making this baby formula a beautiful balance of nutrition and health-supporting ingredients.

HiPP Dutch Formula

HiPP Dutch Stage 1

Age:   0-6 months

 

Size:   800g / 28.22oz

 

Why Choose?

Prebiotics & Probiotics for healthy digestion, No Maltodextrin, Skimmed Milk

Gentle and wholesome, HiPP Dutch Combiotic is a 100% organic whey-based baby formula. This skimmed milk version of the formula is the standard version you often see on the shelves in America but without the terrible additives and full of added bonuses.

 

Nutritionally balanced to be as close to breastmilk as possible, this European baby formula has vitamins A, C, D, and iron to support your little one's body and immune system. Omega-3s and omega-6s (DHA & ARA) are added to support brain development and growth. Organic grass-fed lactose gives naturally occurring prebiotic fibers to aid digestion and helps to break down any allergy-causing bacteria.

 

Your little one will love the creamy taste of this baby formula, and parents and caregivers will love the nutrition that support the baby's health and immune system.

Holle Goat Milk

Holle Goat Milk Stage 1

Age:   0-6 months

 

Size:   400g / 14oz

 

Why Choose?

Biodynamic Organic A2 Whole Goat Milk, Organic Maltodextrin, No Palm Oil

Goat's milk formula protein generally forms a smaller, softer, and looser curd in the gut than cow milk formula, which makes goat's milk formula naturally easier to digest and reduces allergies found in cow’s milk baby formula.

Holle goat's milk formula provides essential fatty acids similar to breastmilk, which acts as a prebiotic. It makes digestion and absorption easier. Healthy gut bacteria means fewer issues with sensitivity.

 

100% organic goat’s milk naturally contains high levels of specific vitamins, including vitamin A, vitamin C, magnesium, and calcium, which help your baby to grow and thrive from head to toe, inside and out.

Only the Best for Your New Addition

Following the strict European baby formula guidelines, HiPP baby formulas and Holle baby formula do not contain wheat, soy, peanut ingredients, or added sugar.

 

European organic certification means that your baby formula will undergo multiple checks from the farm to the factory to ensure your infant receives only the superior nourishment they deserve.
