HIPP Comfort Formula relieves flatulence, lactose-related 3-month colic and constipation in infants. Newborn digestive systems are immature, which can be manifested by flatulence, colic and constipation and is often associated with crying. HiPP Comfort Formula with its special composition is easy to digest, has a stool loosening and regulating effect, and improves certain aspects of metabolic health.
What is so special about HIPP Comfort Formula?
HiPP Comfort Formula contains easily digestible lactose. Since some babies do not tolerate lactose well, the lactose content is significantly lower than in conventional milk foods. By breaking down protein, Comfort special nutrition also contains only small protein building blocks, which the body perceives as less foreign and can digest more easily.
Particularly easily digestible fat, whose structure is similar to the fatty acids in breast milk, rounds off the active complex of HiPP Comfort Formula. Please use HiPP AR Special Food only after consulting your pediatrician.

Frequently asked questions
Is a special diet useful for flatulence and constipation?
Problems such as flatulence, colic or constipation are not uncommon. Experience has shown that the symptoms can be alleviated by being very close to your baby, taking it easy during the day and massaging the abdomen. Most of the time, these digestive problems go away on their own.
In the case of constipation, you should pay particular attention to the correct dosage of powder. If your baby suffers increasingly from indigestion coupled with strong crying, a special food can help to alleviate the discomfort.
Due to its special composition, HiPP Comfort special food regulates digestion and loosens stool. It can therefore help with flatulence and constipation. Please always consult your pediatrician first before feeding a special food.
Can I combine Hipp Comfort Formula with other HiPP infant formulas?
In principle, it is possible to feed HiPP special foods – such as Comfort or Anti-Reflux – together with HiPP infant foods. Your pediatrician can decide whether this makes sense in individual cases.
How much milk does my baby need in the first months?
As a rule, your baby at this age may drink as often and as much as he or she wants. The food can be breast milk as well as an initial formula (Pre or 1).
Each baby has different needs, which can also change on a daily basis. A healthy baby knows how much food he or she needs.
If your child is not yet full after the bottle offered, a little more is offered – on the other hand, leftovers can also remain in the bottle when your baby is full. You will notice yourself very quickly with which amount and which number of bottles your baby is satisfied.
Hipp Comfort Formula vs. Hipp HA
Among Hipp’s special foods, Hipp Comfort Formula and Hipp HA Formula are the most popular. Hipp Comfort Formula is perfect for babies who are prone to burping and flatulence without this being due to an allergy. Hipp HA Formula, on the other hand, is designed for babies who either have an allergy themselves or are considered at risk of allergies based on family history.
