Holle Bio Stage 2 Organic Follow-on Infant Milk Formula is the perfect next step for older babies who have been thriving on clean, high-quality formulas like Holle Bio Stage 1 or Holle Bio Stage PRE. Holle Bio Stage 2 is a complete source of nutrition for babies six months and older, including those who are still breastfeeding and those who have begun eating solid foods. Because of its short list of ingredients, the Holle organic infant milk formula is a particularly good choice for babies who are transitioning to formula for the first time.
In order to meet the needs of growing babies, Holle Bio Stage 2 contains larger quantities of micronutrients and macronutrients than Stage 1 and Stage PRE formulas, yet it maintains a very simple ingredients list for a high-quality organic baby formula: biodynamic organic skim milk, organic whey powder, organic maltodextrin and starch, organic vegetable oils, and essential vitamins and minerals. Manufactured and packaged in Germany, Holle Bio Stage 2 is completely free from synthetic nutrients and artificial preservatives, coloring, and flavors.
Holle is one of the most highly-respected baby formula brands in the world, and this cow’s milk-based formula meets the Demeter standard for organic, biodynamic farming, far surpassing the requirements for organic agriculture in the United States. Demeter certification requires annual renewal, ensuring that all Demeter farms are committed to biodiversity promotion, ecosystem preservation, and the highest animal welfare standards. Furthermore, the ingredients in Holle Bio Stage 2 are derived entirely from GMO-free and chemical-free agriculture and manufacturing,
We guarantee that you’ll receive a fresh, beautifully-packaged shipment of Holle Bio Stage 2 infant formula with at least six months to go before the expiration date. Each box of this Holle organic baby formula contains 600 grams (21.2 oz) of formula powder, which should make approximately 150 fl oz of prepared formula.
If this formula isn’t right for your baby, we will work with you to help find the right option for your little one, and give you a store credit to try it.
Our top priority is to help you find the best formula for your little one.

About the Manufacturer
About Holle Organic
Founded in Switzerland in the 1930s, Holle quickly became one of the first companies to achieve the organic Demeter certification, given only to manufacturers working with the highest quality biodynamic farms. For over 85 years, the Holle brand has grown to represent the highest echelon of global organic quality.
While Holle produces a variety of baby products, Holle baby formula is known for its Demeter certification, formulations with fewer ingredients to promote easy digestion, and nutritional completeness. Holle formulas are always based on lactose from biodynamic skim milk, contain added whey to more closely resemble breast milk protein composition, and essential organic nutrients to promote healthy development. Holle also specializes in high quality organic goat milk formula as a healthy alternative for babies with sensitivity to milk proteins. The Holle brand also includes the Lebenswert Bio line of baby formulas, which it launched in 2009.
Holle also cares deeply about sustainability, undergoing a CO2 audit in 2012 covering its entire formula manufacturing process. Today, Holle’s baby formula products are CO2 neutral. At Huggable, we love Holle products because we can feel great about them both for their nutritional excellence and environmental sustainability.
