Finally. What you have all been waiting for as you search the internet for the answer to what seems a simple question. Like many American moms just learning about European formula or perhaps just learning about Holle formula, stages of formula is a completely new concept. Even more so, Holle has added the PRE stage, which some other brands do not have. A common assumption is that this must simply mean it comes before stage one...right???
The difference between Holle PRE and Holle Stage One formula is one ingredient ... Maltodextrin!
The Holle PRE stage formula contains NO maltodextrin, but instead substitutes organic lactose to provide additional nutritive content. Holle Stage One formula, on the other hand, does contain maltodextrin.
Not sure what maltodextrin is? No worries, let's dig deeper into what this means in respect to the formula we give our baby.
We were in a pinch for formula and MyOrganic Company delivered it quickly and reliably! Would highly recommend!
I feel comforted knowing my baby is getting quality formula and the nutrients she needs. She also thinks it delicious. A win for mom and baby, alike.
We had an easy transition from Stage 1 to 2. Going from Stage 2 to 3 was just as easy. Baby likes it!
We have had really good luck with this company and brand of formula. Baby seems to really love it!
I was really disappointed when I found out I would not be able to breastfeed, I have an autoimmune disorder that requires medication to keep at bay and I was even more disappointed when I saw the ingredients that are in the formulas you find here in the US. It was such a relief when I found all of the great options on the My Organic Company website! I chose LouLouka and so far my newborn loves it, he rarely ever spits up and seems to have a happy tummy. It feels good knowing I am giving him the best.
