Diet Plan: From birth to the 4th month

**The WHO recommends breastfeeding until the 2nd year or longer. If you do not breastfeed, we recommend the HiPP Milk Formulae or HiPP HA Formulae specifically created for your child’s individual age group.

During baby’s first months, breastfeeding is best for your baby.

If you do not breastfeed, industrially manufactured infant formulae are the only alternative.

Infant formulae are composed in a way that they completely cover the nutritional needs of a baby during their first months of life. Therefore, they can be used as the sole form of nutrition. Within the infant formulae range of goods, we distinguish between nutrition with the prefix “Pre” and nutrition with the number “1”. These two types of nutrition are different in that “Pre” nutrition – such as breast milk – uses lactose as the only carbohydrate, whereas “1” nutrition also contains a small proportion of creamy, gluten-free starch.

In the first months your baby satisfies both hunger and thirst by drinking milk. Additional fluid intake through tea or water is only necessary if your baby sweats a lot or loses a lot of fluids.
