Fantastic!

published

Best formula. Baby gulps it down and honestly prefers it more than my milk! Never once made her constipated and gives me 1 or 2 poo nappies a day. Expensive but sooo worth it highly recommend.

Purchased in July 2019 at Terra Madre for $23.95.

Holle organic goat milk infant formula

published

This formula is fantastic, hence all the baby awards. I use it as a top up after breastfeeding and my baby loves it.. no more tummy aches. Would recommend to mums looking for something similar to breastmilk. I tried cows milk formula (nestle) and my baby would suffer from tummy aches and she would poo green. I’m so happy I made the change and I’m not looking back.

Great formula

published

We switched to this formula after our baby wasn't doing so well on the previous formula. After the switch she was happier slept a little better too. Easy to prepare, but needs a good shake. Hard to find (we purchase online) and a little expensive, but worth it. Great for sensitive babies

Best Powdered Formula Available!

published

Highly recommend this formula. It is pricey and takes a while to arrive in the US, so I only use it when I travel and am unable to make my baby formula (using the Nourishing Traditions Recipe). My baby had no adverse side effects to drinking this formula and I was completely pleased with this product.

Excellent infant formula for cows milk. Also try the goats milk option.

published

If your baby has reactions to the cow milk formula the Holle organic goat formula for 0-6 months is also excellent. Baby loves both and sometimes we do a combo of cow and goat because the goat milk is double the price. Sometimes when I've opened the box there's been no measuring spoon in there. So I would advise to keep the measuring spoon from an old box and re-use it in case you don't get one the next time. Also, it's very often out of stock so if I find some I buy several boxes at once.

It stinks

published

The positive side: it is organic and there is not much option available for organic.
The negative side: this formula stinks really badly the smell in his clothes and bibs is unbearable...
Especially because my baby has reflux and vomits a lot, the smell sticks everywhere. I just couldn't finish the whole box Because it stinks.
PLUS THE PRICE I PAID WAS $45 at About Life for a little box... then saw it at IGA for almost half of the price


Happy baby and happy Mama.

published

My grandaughter wouldn't latch and after a month of my daughter pumping and topping up with formula she was desperate as baby was very colicky!!!!!After reading reviews ordered online. Immediately she settled and began to settle.Much more settled tummy and poops as if she is breastfed. Easy to mix and light on baby's stomach.Side effects?Just one happy baba!!!!!Highly recommend and she even smells better!!!!!!

terrible

published

This product has given my nephew horrible side effects. We initially purchased it from the supermarket and that day started him on it. For 2 days I babysat a constipated and crying infant. It was horrible what he must have felt. Very disappointed to see fluoride was added to the ingredients too, at a closer look.

Would NOT recommend this product.

Our baby loves it!

published

The milk preparation is very easy. We tried various brands of formula milk on the market but thanks to my sister who recommended this site [weblink removed] to us. We tried Holle organic formula and decided to stick with it. Our baby can finish his bottle with this milk and we notice the big difference between Holle and other formula milk. With Holle, he sleeps well and is getting stronger and healthier each day!

HORRIBLE.

published

I gave my baby 30 oz. of this formula within 24 hours (to give it a try). Unfortunately, to no avail, my son started having the worst constipation ever! He was in so much pain & the smell of his stools was so foul and hard like clay that he bled. My husband and I are so upset that we've hurt our son with this stuff. JUST TERRIBLE. I would not recommend.

Great Formula!

published

Easy to prepare, baby loves it. Have transitioned to the follow on formula and no problems :) It is expensive, but baby is getting high quality organic formula and he is mostly breastfed so trying to keep as natural as possible :) Also love the Goat milk formula. Will keep buying.


Excellent!!

published

This formula is great! Baby loves it and poops exactly like when breastfed. Gentle on tummy. I pour the formula powder into a large air tight glass jar so it's easier to use when preparing. Only thing it doesn't contain is dha and probiotics so I add this in. Very happy and worth the price knowing I'm feeding my baby the next best.

Great match with our baby

published

We tried most cow based and goat based formula and so far, Holle is the one which bub loves so far.
Nice smell, easy to digest, he poops daily (unlike other formula where he poops after 2 or 3 days), burps well
and generally gentle on tummy. It comes with a price but it it's worth it!

Perfect baby formula

published

Free from all the nasties compared to other formulas this European product is perfect if you are looking to supplement or replace breastfeeding.
Easily digested, organic and good for babies.
My son has been using it since birth(3 months now) and has no digestive issues with this formula, compared to other brands we tried.

Constipated to the point of bleeding after only 3 days

published

He ate it fine but he was so constipated that he actually bled. He only ate it for 3 days. I can't believe this happened. I'm at a loss for words, we are so upset. He was crying and uncomfortable and couldn't sleep all night long. Also seems like he couldn't digest t very well either since the poo smells so bad.

Love this formula

published

My first 2 children refused to drink formula (cows milk) and continuously spat up and felt unwell, but my 3rd child loves Holle goat milk formula without any issues at all. Although the product is more expensive than other brands, it's well worth it and being organic is a huge plus. Definitely recommend.


Why would you add fluoride to an Organic product?

published

I'm very disappointed. I read all of the great reviews on this product and saw this as a potential alternative for other Organic formulas I had been using. I read the ingredients and the labels in the PDF, shame on me, I didn't go all the way to the bottom and it wasn't until I ordered it and read the label at home that I realize it had fluoride. Guess I will have to go back to the original brand I was purchasing and see if I can get my money back.


Excellent

published

We tried Karicare Goats formula first as thats what was recommended, we ended up in hospital as my baby boy became constipated! Once he started on Holle Organice he started poo-ing again that day! I still breast feed (supply is going down) and give him 3 feeds a day of formula. Works well, i get a break and he sleeps better. Since starting on Holle we have had 4 sleep through nights. Winning!

Sienna ❤️'s it!

published

Tried various other popular infant formula brands when my breast milk ceased.. Those well know popular brands caused her constipation followed by diarrhoea, serve stomach cramps, body & face rash & was unsettled.. Holle Organic infant Formula changed that all around.. Sienna loves it, often wants more! She sleeps more constantly & all the above symptoms suffered from other brands were gone! Try it :-)

Didn't work for us

published

This formula was my last resort. It unfortunately made my baby extremely constipated and after the 5th day he wouldn't drink it. I don't think he liked the taste. 2 stars for being organic though.

My son is 8 months old and I am thinking about switching his milk to Holle goat and I wanted to know about the taste. I have tried Gerber Organic milk and he would not drink it at all. how is the taste if my son has already gotten use to the US based formula that is, what I seem to think, is sweet unlike organic?

My girl likes the taste even though I think the smell is a bit strong she is 6 months now and we have started no2.. I don’t think it’s sweet but then again I haven’t tried any US formulas.. up to you really..

I just prepared Holle Goat Milk formula for the first time and noticed that there are clumps is that normal?

It is but you need to shake it really well so it dissolves. I noticed clumps when formula was close to expiry date and also when we did not close the box properly and air got in.

Addie

Thanks for confirming Jasna! I did double check the expiration date on the package and it said Feb 2018 and it was a brand new box that I opened, I also tasted the milk to make sure it didn't taste spoiled and it tasted fine, I just was not sure about the clumps. Thanks again =)

agree with Jasna. it can be the air. just make sure you shake it well in boiled water.


Yolita

Yolitaasked

Hi! I would like to know if somebody has the same issues as my daughter.
She was having fevers that comes and goes and loosing hair since feeding her with Holle. She is 3 months old and I'm mixing the formula with purified bottle water (not boiled) and Nordics Organic Baby DHA. I also use probiotics from Narrow babies.
She doesn't have any other symptoms only low grade fever every other day and hair loss.
I stopped the formula about a week ago and the fevers have disappeared the same day that I fed her with other formula, also the hair loss. I stopped also the Dha and probiotics with it.
Any thoughts?
Have you heard about it? It looks like intoxication to me.
Thank you.

If you are not breastfeeding, looking for a good formula try Honest company organic babyformula. It's sold online & target as well. they are helpful there number is 1 (888) 862-8818 do not five the baby tap water or any other water if not boiled. Boil her water and let it cool . But if possible buy nursery water with NO FLOURIDE. I'm sorry to hear about your little baby having fever & loosing hair. I have a 4 year old and 4 month old infant so my heart goes out to how you feel.

Hi yolita I also wanted to mention the honest formula you will need to buy the dha drops separate but it will last a while. You only use it once a day in a bottle. But I would not give tour baby anything extra, only a good formula and read if it comes with dha or not & if it doesnt then you buy the dha drops separate. What does your pediatrician say about hair loss and fever ?
