Formula- specifically organic ones

What formula are you currently using? My little guy will need to supplement when I head back to work. This time around I'm a little more conscious of what's in there and looking for something more organic.
Been looking into Holle Lebenswert (from Germany), Nature's One (but I've read it may have too much calcium), and Honest Company. Anyone have experience with any of these?

I use Baby's Only which is an organic non-gmo formula for my now 11 month old. It's made by natures one. Fairway and whole foods sell it but I get it cheaper on Amazon through subscribe and save.

I've read that they label it a toddler formula only because they want to promote breastfeeding for the first year. Then I read something about the amount of calcium being too high for infants. Have you heard that at all? I was leaning toward this one.

I've heard that about it being a toddler formula to promote breastfeeding but haven't heard anything about the amount of calcium.

I just looked. We use the lactorelief which has comparable calcium levels to similac sensitive.

We use Holle formula and baby loves it. He is doing so well on it. We order from organicmunchkin.com, it's a local company in Astoria. We are going to Europe next week and I will be stocking up to bring home. Baby has been on all of the similacs and 2 enfsmils. The amount of spitting up is awful. Holle has been so good for baby. We also buy the HIPP cereal( peach and banana breakfast). I give baby a DHA supplement once a day as well. Good luck , it's sometimes difficult to find the right formula for baby.

I've read the same. The reason I don't like that is because I feel like it's a disclaimer of some sort, like if something goes wrong?

Oh really? That's the website someone recommended to me. Something about buying something I can't read was making me nervous. Do you warm up the water first or just make it like any other powder formula?

I swear by Baby's Only. No issue with the amount of calcium in it. Not sure why it's labeled toddler formula but I used for 8 months with my first and it was a godsend. Baby #2 will definitely be on it if I can't BF.

I was heating the water for a while, but I don't anymore. They have the boxes in English if you search on line. Basically it's one scoop per ounce of water. The scoop is pretty small. You can also compare the ingredients , the milk is a better quality and smells SO much better than the formula we were using.
