Organic European Baby Formulas Stages Pre and Stage 1
When it comes to feeding babies between the ages of 0 to 6 months, it is important to choose the right formula that provides targeted nutrition. European Stages PRE and Stage 1 formulas are designed to cater to the specific needs of infants, ensuring they receive the essential nutrients required for their growth and development. What sets these formulas apart is their gentle nature, which makes them ideal for the immature digestive systems of young babies.
Stage PRE Infant Formula
The term "European Baby Formula Stage PRE" is often misunderstood as exclusively for premature or preemie babies. However, it refers to a nutritional stage that is specifically designed to be gentle on the digestive system of a newborn baby who is still developing. This stage is considered the most delicate of all the available stages and is intended for use from birth. Unlike other stages, it does not contain starch and maltodextrin, making it much easier for the baby to digest. Despite being easier on the digestive system, it still provides all the necessary nutrition that a newborn requires, ensuring they receive the best possible start. Stage PRE relies solely on organic lactose.
Stage 1 Infant Formula
As soon as a baby is born, this stage of nutrition can serve as a source of additional nutrients or a completely nourishing alternative to breastfeeding, just like Stage PRE. The main component of this stage is its primary protein source, which is usually obtained from whey derived from cow's or goat's milk. The reason for selecting whey protein is its high digestibility and absorption rate, which minimizes inflammation and adverse reactions in newborns and infants.
This makes it an ideal protein source that supports and promotes the healthy growth and development of infants and young children. Stage 1 may include the addition of starch or maltodextrin.
Do I have to switch baby formula stages after 6 months?
After 6 months, if your older baby is satisfied with stage 1 and is healthy and thriving, staying at this stage is an excellent choice.
The first and second stages are nutritionally similar; the key difference lies in the type of protein used and the amount of age-appropriate iron present. First-stage infant formula is made predominantly with whey protein, while second-stage infant formula is marketed for hungrier babies and contains more casein.
European Organic Baby Formulas
The European Union has set strict guidelines for all organic baby formulas sold within its borders. These guidelines ensure that the formulas are free from harmful substances such as pesticide residue, growth hormones, genetically modified organisms (GMOs), synthetic chemicals, and preservatives.
To earn the organic stamp, each container of baby formula must undergo a thorough testing process to ensure that it is free from heavy metals and other toxic ingredients. These high standards are maintained throughout the entire production process, from the farm to the final product.
