Frequently asked questions
Does HA food reduce the risk of allergies?
If allergies occur in the family, i.e. if parents or siblings are known to have an allergy (e.g. hay fever, food allergy, neurodermatitis or allergic asthma), babies in this family are also considered to be “pre-exposed to allergies”. Breast milk is the best allergy protection for babies. Mothers of allergy-prone children should breastfeed their babies fully for four to six months, if possible.
If breastfeeding is not possible or if the mother wants to supplement, HA food is a good option. The term HA stands for hypo-allergenic food. The special manufacturing process of HA food turns the large proteins of cow’s milk into many small pieces. This can reduce the risk of developing an allergy.
Won’t follow-on milk make the baby chubby?
Today’s follow-on foods do not make babies fat. In the past, doctors thought that a baby needs much more calories after the 4th month. For this reason, the follow-on foods of the time contained significantly more starch and sugar. Nutritionists warned against overfeeding. The calorie content of follow-on milks was therefore harmonized with that of the initial milks.
Since 2008, an EU directive has stipulated that follow-on and starter milks must not have a calorie content higher than a maximum of 70 kcal/100ml. This means that the energy content of follow-on milks hardly differs from that of starter milks. It contains more starch and is therefore significantly more creamy.
HiPP follow-on formulas are ideal for the needs of children from the age of six months. They contain precisely the right amounts of vitamins and minerals. Follow-on milks also improve a baby’s iron supply.
How do I switch from another formula milk to HIPP HA Combiotik Stage 2?
If there is still powder left from the previous food, you can slowly switch to the new food. Replace only one bottle on the first day, and then another one every day. Such a changeover is particularly gentle. Please do not mix the powder of two different foods into one bottle.
