Preparation Instructions:
  1. Sterilizing and Preparing:
    Begin by thoroughly washing your hands and sterilizing all utensils, as well as your work area. To ensure that all potential bacteria in the water are eliminated, bring a liter of water to a boil and then allow it to cool down to about 50°C (122°F) for up to 30 minutes.
  2. Mixing:
    Pour half of the water into the bottle (refer to the Feeding Chart above for the exact quantity). Measure the powder according to the specified amount on the table and add it to the bottle. To do this, loosely fill the measuring spoon and level it off with the back of a knife. Shake the powder and half the amount of water vigorously to ensure a thorough mix. Then, add the remaining water and shake well again.
  3. Temperature Control:
    The baby food is ready for consumption once it reaches a safe drinking temperature, approximately 37°C (~98°F). If necessary, you can let the food cool in the refrigerator to reach this temperature. Always check the temperature of the food on your forearm to make sure it's not too hot before feeding. Use the freshly prepared food immediately after preparation.

Holle PRE – Organic Infant Formula
Holle PRE – Organic Infant Formula


Organic and pesticide-free ingredients are crucial for baby formulas to ensure that infants receive pure nutrition. This Organic Formula stands out by sourcing its ingredients, including skim milk and vitamin B6, from farms that adhere to strict organic and biodynamic farming principles. These farms avoid synthetic pesticides and fertilizers, ensuring that every spoonful of formula, enriched with 0.1% fat milk, is as natural as possible.

In addition to being organic, Holle’s Stage Pre formula powder is also free of additives, preservatives, and artificial flavors or colors. It is made with high-quality ingredients such as organic milk, organic vegetable oils, organic maltodextrin, and essential vitamins and minerals, to support optimal growth and development in babies.
This Holle product is also easily digestible and gentle on infants’ stomachs, thanks to the carefully selected ingredients and the absence of harmful additives. This product is ideal for infants from birth to six months old, who need a nutritious and wholesome alternative to breast milk.

Demeter Certification: Beyond Organic Standards

Holle’s formula is not just organic; it’s Demeter certified, making it a premium choice for infants needing stage 1 or stage 2 nutrition. This certification is a step above organic, indicating that the farming practices meet the highest biodynamic standards. Demeter farming emphasizes a holistic approach to agriculture, ensuring the health of the soil, plants, and animals, and is integral to the production of organic infant formulas. This certification is a testament to Holle’s commitment to sustainability and eco-friendly practices.

Why Choose Holle for Your Baby?

The Importance of Milk as a Primary Ingredient

The Essential Role of Milk in Infant Nutrition: Milk stands as the foundational element in infant formulas, rich in vital nutrients such as proteins, fats, vitamins, and minerals, essential for a baby’s healthy growth. 

Holle’s organic baby formula elevates this foundation by utilizing superior cow or goat milk sourced from Demeter-certified farms. These farms cherish the principles of biodynamic agriculture, allowing animals to thrive in natural, verdant pastures without the intervention of harmful chemicals or antibiotics. Such practices ensure that the milk, a critical ingredient in Holle’s formula, retains its purity and nutritional integrity, offering your infant a nourishment that closely mirrors the wholesomeness of breast milk.

Holle’s Commitment to Biodynamic Farming Practices

Holle’s approach extends beyond mere agricultural methods; it embodies a profound respect for nature’s cycles, aiming to produce organic baby food that aligns with the environment’s natural rhythms. This philosophy guarantees that Holle products not only support your baby’s health but also contribute to a sustainable future for our planet. Opting for Holle means choosing a path that nurtures your baby with the finest organic ingredients, from organic skimmed milk to organic palm, rapeseed, and sunflower oils, all while advocating for a healthier Earth.

Moreover, organic infant milk is not just nourishment; they are a celebration of life’s beginnings, crafted with care to meet the baby’s needs. From the first box of formula to every subsequent feed, parents can be assured of providing their infants with a diet that is as close to nature as possible. Holle ensures every infant formula, whether it’s Holle goat milk formula, Holle stage pre-organic, or any of their biodynamic products, adheres to the strictest organic certifications. This commitment is evident in their transparent practices, ensuring that each infant-milk contains all the necessary nutrients, like vitamin B6, for a thriving infancy.

Safety and Quality Assurance

How Holle Ensures the Highest Quality in Every Box

Holle adheres to stringent European organic regulations, ensuring each box of formula meets high safety and quality standards. The brand’s commitment to transparency and quality control means parents can trust what they’re feeding their infants.

Understanding Organic Certifications and What They Mean for Your Baby

Organic certifications for Holle organic formula are more than just labels; they represent a commitment to providing your baby with a natural, safe, and healthy start, enriched with nutrients like vitamin B12. These certifications ensure that all ingredients are free from genetically modified organisms (GMOs), synthetic pesticides, and harmful chemicals. By choosing the Holle Stage Pre-Organic formula, you’re choosing a product that’s certified organic and Demeter, meaning it meets the highest standards of organic farming.

Understanding Organic Formula

What Does “Stage Pre” Mean for Your Infant?

“Stage Pre” indicates that the infant milk is designed for the earliest stage of an infant’s life, from birth onwards. It’s crafted to be gentle on newborns’ stomachs, mimicking the nutritional profile of breast milk as closely as possible. This stage offers a balanced blend of nutrients essential for your baby’s development during the first few months.

The Nutritional Profile of Holle Stage Pre-Organic Formula

Holle Stage Pre Organic is enriched with vitamins and minerals necessary for infant growth and development, including vitamins C, E, B6, and K, along with folic acid, niacin, and more. It provides a balanced mix of nutrients, ensuring that your baby gets a solid foundation for healthy growth.

Beyond milk, Holle formulas are fortified with a balanced blend of carbohydrates, and vital minerals, meticulously crafted to cater to all nutritional needs of your infant. This careful formulation underscores Holle’s commitment to providing a holistic, organic infant formula that serves as a comprehensive supplement to breast milk. With every spoonful, your baby is enveloped in a spectrum of nutrients designed for optimal growth and developmental support, making Holle a trusted choice for parents seeking the pinnacle of organic baby nutrition.

Transitioning to Holle Stage Pre-Organic Formula

How to Introduce Your Baby to Holle Formula

Introducing a new formula can be a gradual process, especially when transitioning to stage 1 organic infant milk. Start by replacing one feeding with Holle Stage Pre Organic and gradually increase as your baby becomes more accustomed to the new taste and composition, ensuring they receive all essential vitamins including pantothenic acid. This slow transition helps your baby’s digestive system adjust smoothly to the new organic infant milk.

Tips for Smooth Transition and Feeding Schedule

Maintain a consistent feeding schedule and pay close attention to your baby’s hunger cues. Always follow the mixing instructions on the box to ensure your baby receives the right nutrient balance, including adequate amounts of vitamin K and vitamin B1. Warm the milk to body temperature for a comforting experience for your baby.

Holle Stage Pre Organic Infant Formula: Your Questions Answered

Is it certified organic?

Indeed, Holle Stage Pre goes beyond basic organic standards, being not only certified by the European Commission but also produced on farms that meet the Demeter criteria for biodynamic agriculture – the gold standard for organic farming in Europe.

What is the difference between Holle Pre and Holle Stage 1 formulas?

Both Holle Pre and Holle Stage 1 formulas are designed to nourish infants right from birth, yet they cater to slightly different nutritional preferences and needs. The primary distinction lies in their carbohydrate content. Holle Pre exclusively uses lactose as a carbohydrate, closely mirroring the natural sugar found in breast milk, making it an ideal choice for newborns. On the other hand, Holle Stage 1 may include maltodextrin in addition to lactose, offering a thicker consistency and potentially providing a more satiating effect for some babies. Choosing between them can depend on your baby’s digestion and nutritional needs, with both products delivering the high-quality, organic nutrition that Holle is known for.

How does "Pre" formula differ from later stages?

The “Pre” designation indicates suitability for the earliest nutritional needs, from birth to 6 months, focusing on lactose as the sole carbohydrate to closely mimic the composition of breast milk, without the addition of other carbohydrates like maltodextrin or starch.

At what age can my baby start with Holle Stage Pre?

From the moment of birth until the 6-month mark, this product serves as an ideal nutritional choice, perfectly tailored to your infant’s dietary needs during these crucial early months.

Can it be the exclusive nutritional source for my infant?

Absolutely. This product is formulated to be a comprehensive nutritional source for infants, capable of either supplementing or fully replacing breast milk up to six months of age, now including important nutrients such as vitamin B6 and calcium carbonate.

What about the iron content?

This organic formula is fortified with iron at a concentration of 0.53 mg per 100 ml of prepared formula, to support your baby’s developmental needs.

Are there probiotics or prebiotics in Holle Stage Pre?

This product is crafted without the addition of prebiotics or probiotics, focusing on a pure and simple formula to support your baby’s health and digestion.

Does it include palm oil?

Yes, the formula contains organic palm oil, sourced in an ecologically responsible manner, to provide essential fatty acids.

What allergens are present in Holle Stage Pre?

The primary allergen in this product is milk, derived from organic dairy used in the formula.

Could it potentially lead to constipation?

While this product is designed to be gentle on infants’ digestive systems, individual reactions can vary. Should you observe any signs of digestive discomfort in your baby, consulting with a healthcare professional is advised.

What steps should I take if the formula doesn't agree with my baby?

If you notice any adverse reactions to this product, it’s important to stop using the product and seek guidance from your pediatrician to find the most suitable feeding solution for your baby.

Where is Holle Stage Pre, available for purchase?

You can buy Holle Stage Pre formula on the Baby’s Best Food online store.

How much formula does one box of Holle Stage Pre, produce?

One box of this product yields approximately 102.4 fluid ounces of prepared formula, providing around 20 servings of 5 ounces each.

What is the shelf life of Holle Stage Pre?

Unopened, Holle Stage Pre can be stored until the expiration date marked on the package. Once opened, we recommend using the formula within 2 weeks for maximum freshness.

How long does prepared formula remain usable?

Freshly prepared formula should be used within 2 hours if kept at room temperature, or within 1 hour after feeding has commenced. Unused formula should not be stored or frozen; however, if necessary, an untouched prepared bottle may be refrigerated for up to 24 hours.
