Where to buy Holle, HiPP and Lebenswert formula in the US: The Best Trustworthy Vendors in 2020!This post may contain affiliate links. Please read my disclosure.
Many of you know that when I had Layla, breastfeeding was not easy. I stuck with it for as long as I could, but eventually I needed to supplement with formula. After a ton of online research, discussions with doctors, and conversations with friends, I came up with this list of the best organic formulas for your baby (with Holle, HiPP, and Lebenswert formula ranking at the top of the list).
In coming up with the list, I realized that all of the healthiest baby formulas are produced in Europe. So in addition to identifying the formulas, I needed to find reliable places to buy European formula in the US.
The good news is – since Layla was born 5 years ago, there are many more places where you can buy baby formula in the US! The bad news is, there are also still a lot of untrustworthy vendors out there. That’s why I have created a thorough screening process to find the most most trustworthy online vendors that I could feel comfortable recommending as places to buy Holle, HiPP and Lebenswert formula in the US.
As of January 2020, the below 6 online retailers are the safest and most reliable places to buy European formulas.
Some of the items below were given to me to review by the manufacturer or as part of an affiliate program. I may receive commissions if you make a purchase through the links provided. I only recommend products I’ve actually evaluated, I believe are the highest quality, and can do the most to help you and your family. By purchasing any of these products from the links below, you help keep this blog running, so thanks for your support!
My recommendations are based on the manufacturer’s claims and ingredients list, and what I feel best giving to my own family. Your individual results may be different based on your overall diet, exercise, age, weight, family history, or pre-existing conditions.
Top 7 Places to Buy Holle, HiPP, and Lebenswert Formula in the US
Organic Start has been one of the longest-standing distributors of European Baby Formula to the US and is highly reputable and reliable. In fact, I ordered my kids’ formula from Organic Start when they were infants! I have known Peter, the owner, for over 5 years, and can confidently say that he likely has the largest supply chain of European formula available today.
Peter founded Organic Start (formerly Organic Munchkin) after his triplets were born and he was looking for a better formula than what was available on grocery store shelves here in the US.
What Makes Organic Start Stand Out?
- Always in stock! Organic Start has an extensive supply of: HiPP Dutch, HiPP UK, HiPP Germany, Holle, Lebenswert, and Loulouka.
- Other healthy baby related products: Organic Start carries organic baby care products, eco-friendly/biodegradable/chlorine free diapers from Bambo Nature, and helpful products for moms
- Free expedited shipping
- Same-day shipping to some US locations
- Discounts on bulk orders
- They have a wholesale site where you can save up to 40% on ALL European formulas
MyOrganicCompany is the only online retailer I’ve found that literally has every formula you can think of. They are always in stock of HiPP Dutch, HiPP UK, HiPP Germany, Holle, Lebenswert, Goat Milk formula, and the sensitive formulas (HiPP HA, Comfort, Anti-Reflux); but they even have Loulouka, Good Night Formula from HiPP, Stage 3 and Stage 4 formula from HiPP, Holle, Lebenswert and Loulouka!
What Makes MyOrganicCompany stand out?
- Guaranteed availability of ALL the European formulas

When it comes to affordability, Bottles & Burps is the lowest priced US retailer I have found that sells HiPP, Holle, and Lebenswert formula. I met with Courtney and Blake, the co-owners, and learned that they had the same experience as I did when trying to find healthy formula for their little one. They are committed to bringing high quality, European formula to parents in the US.

They have reasonable prices, reliable shipping (within 1-3 business days!), amazing customer support, and I have been in contact with the owner personally.
What Makes OrganicBabyFood Stand Out?

Please note that The Picky Eater is not responsible for the quality of either the formula itself or the experience of ordering from any of the distributors listed above.
