HiPP Organic Follow On Milk & Giveaway

We started weaning Archie at 6 months old, he had already been showing all the signs for over a month to say he was ready but we waited and he had his first taste of food at 6 months old, a beef roast dinner to be exact! He has done really well with weaning, we do a mixture of BLW and purees but now he is 10 months old it is more finger food with the occasional puree. One thing we have also changed is his formula, he is now on follow on milk for age 6+ months to compliment his new diet, we never changed Isla's milk but after looking into it we could see the benefits of the follow on milk and decided it was the right change to make. Archie has dropped a bottle so now has 2 8oz and 1 9oz bottle before bed as well as his 3 meals a day.

Don't worry his bottle is meant to be that colour, its the night time bottle by Avent.
The Hipp Organic Follow On Milk is the only complete organic formula that is available in the UK, it contains the right amount of ingredients for a weaning baby like vitamins A, C and D for the immune system, Iron for cognitive development and PRÆBIOTIK® (GOS). I noticed compared to the Cow and Gate follow on milk that we use that Hipp contained a lot more of the ingredients on most vitamins and nutrients. Archie has taken to the follow on milk really well and its nice to know that he is getting the right added vitamins needed so I don't have to worry to much that he's not getting enough iron etc into his diet if he throws his food everywhere as I know the formula is like a back up and contains more than his infant stage 1 milk. 

As you can see weaning is going very well, we are both really enjoying it, especially now he has 3 teeth and has properly learnt to chew he gets stuck into eating everything. His favourite foods are tomatoes, yorkshire puddings and beef, oh and as you can see he loves his Mummy's spaghetti bolognese! 

The competition is in association with Hipp Oragnic Follow On Milk, which is an ideal complement to the weaning diet from 6 months onwards when moving from breast or infant milk feeding. Follow on milks are designed to complement the weaning diet while your baby is getting used to a variety of different tastes and textures. They are enriched with vitamins, calcium and iron which can really be a help if baby is not eating many iron-containing foods.

The Department of Health recommends that you breastfeed your baby exclusively for the first six months of their life; at around six months you can start to wean them on to solids and start to combine breastfeeding with bottle feeding. HiPP Organic understands that all babies are different and some mums might want to transfer to bottle feeding earlier than others. HiPP Organic would always advise that you speak to your midwife or health visitor before changing your feeding method. For more information on milks, please visit the HiPP Organic Website
