Babybio milks:

>> Where does your Babybio milk come from?
The skimmed milk in the Babybio recipe comes from cows reared on French pastures. The cows are fed with grass or organic forage and, in compliance with organic regulations, preventive treatment by antibiotics is forbidden.
>> Does Babybio market newborn milk ?
Breast milk is the best food source for the specific needs of infants up to 6 months of age.
As a result, European regulations forbid advertising by infant milk producers about milk for newborns.
For this reason we cannot present our newborn infant milk (for 0-6-month-olds) on the Babybio website or in its documentation.
However, if you cannot or do not wish to breastfeed your baby, a health professional can help you choose the best milk for your child.
For more information on our products, please contact us. We are happy to give you information.
>> When can I start follow-on milk?
You can change to follow-on Babybio milks (Optima 2, Lunea 2, Primea 2 or Caprea 2) from 6 months.
>> Is Optima Milk be suitable for my baby even if I didn't breastfeed?
Yes, the Optima range is wholly suitable for your baby, whether or not you breastfed. These bifidus-enriched formulas can meet your baby's nutritional needs (in keeping with regulations).
>> I am currently giving a follow-on milk from another brand and I want to change to Babybio follow-on milk. What should I do?
Changing from one brand of milk to another must be done progressively. You can start by replacing the day bottles by a bottle of follow-on Babybio milk. You do the same for 1 or 2 days, then you replace a 2nd bottle by follow-on Babybio milk and so on until complete replacement.
>> How long will my bottle of Babybio milk keep once it has been prepared?
The bottle of prepared milk must be consumed within one hour of preparation. If your baby does not drink it all, throw the rest away without hesitation.
>> My baby is demanding more milk. Can I increase the quantity of milk per bottle?
It all depends on the weight and size of your child. Ask the advice of a health professional (doctor, paediatrician...).
>> Why does Babybio use maltodextrins in the composition of its infant milks?
Maltodextrins are a source of carbohydrates or "semi-complex sugars" that are easily assimilated by babies. It is a natural material, organically certified and with quality controlled for an infant food application. From a nutritional viewpoint, we use maltodextrins as a supplement to lactose (carbohydrate provided by milk) because infant milk formulas only containing lactose are much less well digested by babies. This maltodextrins - lactose combination allows regurgitation, diarrhoea and colic phenomena to be limited.
>> Are your milks hypoallergenic?
Babybio milks are not hypoallergenic. A hypoallergenic milk is a milk that has undergone a cow's milk protein hydrolysis treatment to reduce their potentially allergenic character. In principal, this protein hydrolysis treatment is not compatible with the organic agriculture requirements specifications. The milks are particularly advised for "at risk" babies meaning those whose family already includes allergic people. They are special milks that are only found in chemists.

About other Babybio products:

>> Can I mix Babybio Cocoa, Vanilla or 3 Fruits Cereals into a bottle of milk?
Of course you can add these Babybio cereals to your bottle of milk, always following the doses indicated on the package. 3 Fruits and Vanilla cereals can be given from 6 months and those with Cocoa from 8 months.
>> Is it possible to freeze the rest of your jars?
After opening our jars will keep for 48h in the refrigerator. You can also freeze the rest of a jar and consume it within one month following freezing.
>> Does Babybio packaging contain bisphenol A (BPA)?
We certify that Babybio packaging is BPA-free. It should further be noted that before using any new packaging, we demand many guarantees from our suppliers, so as to select the most fitting containers for our recipes.
>> Do you use hydrogenated oil in your products?
None of our products contains hydrogenated oil.
>> Why have you chosen to put sugar in your teething biscuits?
Babybio teething biscuits have a simultaneously crunchy and melting consistency that eases piercing by teeth. This consistency is obtained by a very specific formula and manufacturing process. Sugar is one of the ingredients that allows this particular texture to be obtained. Important: to savour its teething biscuits, baby must be in a sitting position under the attentive eye of an adult.
