HiPP Dutch Stage 3 cow's milk formula is a solid choice for little ones transitioning to solid foods. Developed to be included in a diet for infants weaning off breast milk and formulas to regular foods, it's packed with Vitamin A, C, and D to boost bone growth and help avoid any nutritional gaps as they graduate from infant to toddler.
Similar to other toddler formulas, this Stage 3 product is non-GMO and free of any corn syrup, gluten, starch, or sucrose. Stage 3 contains organic ingredients including lactose, skim milk, whey, and a blend of vegetable oils. To help aid in the healthy development of your baby’s gut microbiome and immune system, this nutritionally complete formula also contains galacto-oligosaccharides sourced from lactose. In addition to Omega 3, HiPP Dutch Stage 3 formula is also overflowing with Omega-6 long-chain polyunsaturated fatty acids to help promote the healthy development of your little one’s brain, eyes, and nervous system.
With an emphasis on safety both when producing and packaging, all HiPP Dutch formulas are certified by European Union standards far stricter than those in the United States.

What age of baby is HiPP stage 3 for?
HiPP stage 3 formula is intended for babies aged 10 months and older. This is the final stage in the HiPP infant formula range, which is designed to provide optimal nutrition for babies from birth through the first year of life. The transition to stage 3 formula typically occurs when babies are ready to start consuming solid foods and require a different balance of nutrients to support their growth and development.
HiPP stage 3 formula contains a unique combination of vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients that are specifically tailored to meet the nutritional needs of older babies. For example, it contains higher levels of iron to support healthy brain development and a stronger immune system, as well as more calcium and vitamin D to support the growth of strong bones and teeth.
Is stage 3 formula necessary?
While it is not necessary to switch to stage 3 formula, it can be a helpful option for parents who want to ensure their baby is getting the right balance of nutrients as they transition to solid foods. At this stage of development, babies need a different balance of nutrients than they did in earlier stages, as their digestive system is better equipped to handle a wider variety of foods.
Some parents may choose to continue using stage 2 formula or switch to cow's milk after their baby's first birthday. However, it is important to discuss this decision with your healthcare provider to ensure that your baby is receiving the appropriate nutrition for their individual needs.
Is formula necessary after one year?
After 12 months, most babies can consume a balanced diet that includes a variety of solid foods and whole cow's milk. However, some babies may still require baby formula after 12 months for various reasons. For example, if a baby has a cow's milk allergy, a lactose intolerance, or other dietary restrictions, they may require a specialized formula to meet their nutritional needs.
It is important to discuss any concerns or questions about your baby's nutrition with your healthcare provider to ensure that they are receiving the appropriate balance of nutrients for their individual needs.
How many ounces of prepared HiPP formula can one make?
The number of ounces of prepared formula that one can of HiPP formula can make will depend on several factors, including the size of the can and the specific instructions for preparation. Typically, an 800g can of HiPP formula makes between 20-30 fluid ounces of prepared formula.
It is important to carefully follow the instructions for preparation and to measure the formula powder and water accurately to ensure that the formula is correctly balanced and meets your baby's nutritional needs. Over-diluting or under-diluting the formula can lead to nutritional imbalances and may affect your baby's health and development.
What is the storage life of HiPP Dutch stage 3 formula?
The storage life of HiPP Dutch stage 3 baby formula will depend on various factors, such as the storage conditions and the expiration date of the formula. It is important to follow the instructions on the package for storage and use to ensure the formula remains fresh and safe for your baby to consume.
Typically, unopened cans of HiPP formula can be stored in a cool, dry place for up to 18 months. Once a can has been opened, it should be used within 2 weeks and stored in the refrigerator to maintain freshness and prevent bacterial growth. It is important to always check the expiration date on the can before use and to discard any formula that appears spoiled or has an unusual odor or color. Proper storage and handling of formula is critical to ensure that your baby receives the appropriate balance of nutrients and to prevent the risk of illness or infection.
