Giveaway // Win a HiPP Organic Follow-on Milk Hamper (#MilkMoments)

hipp organics giveaway

We began weaning H-Bear at around four and a half months old, after copious amounts of research into the benefits of early weaning for babies that suffer with reflux.

As this is our second foray into the land of weaning, we have entered into with both a tad less excitement and apprehension than the first time with Busby. He has taken to weaning with far more gusto than Busby ever did, and absolutely adores his food! Blueberries (squished a little between our fingers so they’re not a choking hazard) and apple (cut up into sticks) have been favourites so far, as well as Nick’s famous roast potatoes – sans salt, obviously.

H-Bear’s foodie adventure hasn’t been a completely smooth journey however; not only does he suffer with a cow’s milk protein allergy (CMPA), we’ve also discovered he’s allergic to soya too. This limits what he can have and most things have to be made from scratch, including bread, so Nick has been getting his bake on!

At seven months old, H-Bear has recently moved onto the follow-on version of his allergy milk. I’ve always wondered if follow-on milks are necessary, but HiPP nutritionist Helen has this advice:

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 higher in iron and vitamin D than standard infant formulas which can really be a help if baby is not eating many iron-containing foods and is therefore at greater risk of iron deficiency, and to help protect baby against becoming vitamin D deficient.

If you’re no longer breastfeeding, and are looking to move onto a follow-on milk, then the HiPP Organic Follow-on-Milk includes the essential ingredients your baby needs, including iron for cognitive development, vitamins A, C and D for the immune system and PRÆBIOTIK® a source of allgosaccharldes. HiPP Organic have been researching breastmilk for over 50 years, and their formulas include the ingredients needed to help your baby grow strong and healthy. Their follow-on milk complements the weaning diet from 6 months onwards if moving from breastfeeding, or when progressing from feeding the first stage version of milk.

10 out of 10 mums who have changed to HiPP Organic follow-on-milk say their babies seem happier.

We have one HiPP Organic Follow-on Milk Hamper to give away! The hamper will contain lots of weaning goodies, as well as HIPP Organic follow-on milk, and the HiPP Organic reusable milk storage box, which has a build in scoop holder in the lid and a scoop leveller inside.

Milks Disclaimer:
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.

Good luck!

    The best thing is the faces they make. Experiences for the first time, whether that’s the good (chocolate pudding) or the bad (pureed sprouts)

    I’ve enjoyed finding out she’s a “thrower”! It’s novelty as my son never wasted food – he just wanted to eat it!

    Lots of tantrums but patience and persistence is worth it to see them eating my homecooked food do use the tactic of hiding the food sometimes ie mushrooms chopped really finely keep saying I don’t like them

    It has to be the expressions my baby girl makes when she likes (or doesn’t!!) like new foods.

    It has to be the faces and sounds. They look very similar to the pout from “what you talkin bout Willis” 😀
