Blédina allows babies to educate their palate and discover grain gently. The recipe contains nutrients essential to baby food: cereals, without sugar, without dye and nor conservative in accordance with the regulations. Preparation for infants of origin 100% French. Cereals require no baking, is a major asset, which can be used with the infant preparation of your baby. 0 to 6 months, the essential baby food is breast milk. That is why this product cannot be used as a substitute for breast milk before the 6 months of the gluten enfant.sans.
Suitable for feeding infants from 4 months.
Directions for use:
Just before the meal, prepare a bottle of 210ml of breast milk or infant preparation lukewarm, a 240ml bottle. Pour the recommended amount of grain (3 tablespoons shaved = about 12g) in the bottle. To get a good dissolution, shake the bottle in 2 time: – in circular way by rolling your hands for 10 seconds – vertically for 10 seconds. If you use an infant preparation thickened, adapt the nipple and decrease the amount of grain added.
Grain 99.9% (rice flour), vitamin B1, track of milk and soy – gluten. For 100g prior to reconstitution: fat… 1, 2gDont fatty acids saturated… 0, 4gGlucides… 85, 5gDont sugar… 0, 2gFibres food… 1, 8gproteines… 7, 8gSel… 0, 03gSodium… 10mgVitamine B1… 0.9 mg
Even if you don't make a habit of feeding your child from jars and packets, this information can be useful! For those of us who go out and travel a lot, taking fresh or home made and frozen food is just not always convenient, so we have acquired quite a lot of experience buying baby food here.
I have also included information that has appeared to date on our ‘Parents in France’ board to give readers a broader perspective.
The Bledina website has details of all its products, with ingredients I think, useful if you want to research before you get to the supermarket: www. bledina.com
Unfortunately the Nestle site is full of hints and tips, but I couldn’t find access to anything about its products, so not much help! However, they do send free sachets if you sign up to their club (useful as emergency rations for the baby bag). Bledina sent similar things too.
www.kidbio.com is the website for Babybio. Carrefour sells a small range of their jars. Their carrot puree for example contains only carrots and water, so you know what you are buying. If you contact Babybio they can mail you a list of their order codes so that pharmacists can get their products for you. The website also has tasty recipes for cooking your own healthy and organic baby meals.
We (and this is just a personal thing) used the Bledina formula, which is called Bledilait. I tried using another formula at one point, Nestle I think, hoping to find something we could buy in the UK as it’s a) much cheaper there and b) it meant we didn’t have to travel with big tins, but it just went lumpy and had to be thrown away. So we stuck to the Bledina for stage 1 milk and the start of stage 2.
There are also a number of brands of ready-made formula (Eveil milk) in litre bottles (from stage 2 only). It worked out the same price as a tin of formula but we didn’t have to make up powdered formula that we then didn’t use. It was also less chemical smelling than Bledina liquid formula, less sweet and more milky. Here is more information about it:
Liquid formula seems to come in 500ml or 1 litre bottles, not smaller cartons like the handy UK ones. Formula is sometimes in the milk aisle as well as with baby food, especially the Eveil milks. From 12 months pediatricians say you can switch to cows' milk, or alternatively keep buying "lait de croissance" (follow-up milk) or formula for your baby.
We were recommended to use soya formula when ds was ill at one point, but even with added flavouring (out of desperation) he refused to drink it. I believe some people get on well with it however. You do need to be extra vigilant about cleaning teeth with soya formula.
Here are other peoples’ comment on formula:
“Alternatively you could use a lait de croissance (sold in both the baby aisle and the milk section of the supermarket). These are marketed as suitable from 10 months, but should be fine on cereal for a breastfed baby of 6 months. Compared with cows milk they contain more iron and vitamins; however, they also usually contain added sugar! The only one I've found that doesn't is Candia Croissance (there is a normal and a bio version) though it's still quite sweet because of the lactose content. I use this on my son's cereal, as it comes in 500ml cartons which is perfect for 3 days' cereal (he's 13 months and eats 1-1 1/2 weetabix every day. Actually come to think of it, at 6 months you could start mixing the baby cereal with a little weetabix, which would keep the cost down for you).”
“I've seen that Guigoz do ready-made formula in Auchan and the Geant Casino. They do 0-4 months and 4 months +. Only problem is they are sold in 500ml cartons which have to be used within 24 hours - you'll find yourself wasting an awful lot which will work out expensive. It might be worth your expressing!”
“A friend recommended to me that I avoid Lait de Croissance as it is so sweet. Her dd developed a sweet tooth and refuses (normal) milk as a result... and the battle is still raging 4 years later! I have seen small (200ml) bottles of regular low fat milk and am sure that you must be able to obtain the equivalent in full cream.”
“If he reacts to the milk you'd need to talk to your pediatre about a suitable formula when you choose to wean from breastfeeding - either soya or a special formula for allergic babies. At your ds's age you'd probably be recommended to try a soya formula. We use Modilac Soja 2eme age for dd.”
Baby rice equivalents:
It seems that German babies have baby rice, so if you have an organic shop that sells German/Austrian baby foods, try them. I know Holle make a neutral unsweetened baby rice product. Babybio do organic cereals, chocolate, veg or vanilla, but not plain.
French baby cereals claim on the packaging that they are designed to go in bottles, but if you dislike the idea of feeding solids from a bottle, they can be made thicker and fed from a spoon just as any UK product can by increasing the ratio of cereal to milk.
Bledina now make a ‘my first cereal’. It is lightly sweetened, but designed to be bland in flavour and is gluten-free. Here are the ingredients. It’s not as pure as baby rice, but is possibly an alternative:
Farine de riz 37,4%, maltodextrines, tapioca 28,8%, amidon de mas, huile de palme, mulsifiant : lcithine de soja ; vitamines : E, C, B1, PP, B6, acide folique, biotine et B5 ; traces de lait
Nestle do 2 cereals in tins: one is ‘3 fruits’ and the other is something vegetable. The 3 fruit cereal has no sugar, but low amounts of some other sweetener (however it doesn't taste too sweet at all).
Other peoples’ comments:
“The brand name is Jammet - and the product is called Rizine instantanee. Looking at the packet it does have some added sugar and natural aroma of vanilla (hadn't realised that), but to me it certainly seems the same as what I used in the UK. It is milk and gluten free, claims to be easy to digest and relieves diarrhoea and can be used from 4 months. As well as using it as a first food for Luca I added it to vegetable purees to thicken them. He didn't seem to have any complaints but he's not usually very discriminating about his food!”
“I started weaning my baby 2 weeks ago, and bought the nearest thing to baby rice from the supermarket. It's called Ma Premiere Bledine crales pour bb, it's got no added sugar and is gluten free. I think it consists of rice and tapioca.”
Bledina do a whole range of compotes that are 100% fruit. They are slightly sweeter and smaller pots than adult ones, but adult ones might be acceptable (we found that they tasted more acidic and bitty, so some babies still prefer the baby ones…).
Here’s the choice:
Compotine 100% fruits harmonie de fruits (ex fruits du verger)
Compotine 100% fruits pommes bananes abricots
Compotine 100% fruits pommes coings bananes
Compotine 100% fruits pommes fraises
Compotine 100% fruits pommes pches
Compotine 100% fruits pommes poires
Compotine 100% fruits pommes vanille
In the organic range by Carrefour there are some unsweetened fruit and milk (formula not straight cows) puddings. They are nice, but very runny so you can just thicken them with baby rice or cereal.
Babybio do some jars of organic pure fruit, but some of them (pear Williams for example) are very, very liquid.
The very best vegetables for at home are frozen blocks of pureed veg. They are just vegetables that have been steamed and then pureed and frozen in small blocks, nothing added. To be honest, I couldn’t then see the point of making them myself and I still use these a lot. They can be used alone, or mixed together with baby rice. I believe that Casino does them in boxes, but I know that Carrefour’s own brand have cream and salt added, so you do need to read the labels.
The only jars I have found without salt are the ones by Babybio and a few German/Austrian ones in our organic shop. The Babybio ones are good (although the potato and leek is very thick and we had to water it down, but they only do a handful of flavours. However, with home cooking and weaning that’s not really a problem.
Otherwise I like the Hipp jars, but the UK ones. Few places sell them here, and they have still added salt. The chain Leclerc now stocks the whole range of Hipp jars.
To start with we used yoghurts and fromage frais made with formula, not cows' milk. Bledina do some in small pots, like fromage frais. The fruit ones have no added sugar. They also do plain lightly sweetened ones and vanilla flavour. They do large pots of strawberry or peach yoghurt and some small pots of ‘puddings’: vanilla, caramel or chocolate I think.
Gervais do similar fromage frais pots made with formula, plain lightly sweetened and fruit ones that are sweetened. They are usually cheaper than the Bledina brand.
From 4 to 6 months
Breast milk is the best food for your baby.
It is very important that the baby consumes breast milk for as long as possible.
The right age to start complementary foods
It is recommended to start introducing complementary foods into the baby's diet no earlier than 4 months, but no later than 6 months*. At this age, the baby is in the active phase of development and reacts with curiosity to everything new! Some babies at 4 to 5 months of age can no longer satisfy their appetite with breast milk alone and need complementary foods for healthy growth. Other children have enough breast milk, and they are ready for the introduction of complementary foods only after 6 months. The decision to start complementary foods should always be made according to your baby's development. Do you feel like your baby is not getting enough breast milk? Does your baby hold his head on his own, show interest in new foods or a spoon? Then it's time to start feeding. If in doubt, consult your pediatrician.
If your baby spits out the first spoonfuls of puree, be patient. After all, he must first learn to swallow it. Start with a few scoops and give your child time to get used to the new form of feeding.
*Recommendation of the Nutrition Committee of the European Society of Pediatric Gastroenterology, Hepatology and Nutrition (ESPGHAN)
Why is complementary food important for the baby?
After 4-6 months of life, mother's milk or milk formula alone is not enough to supply the child's body with all the nutrients and necessary energy. In addition, the transition to solid food trains the muscles of the mouth. And finally, with the introduction of complementary foods, the child will get acquainted with the variety of taste directions, which is also important for his development.
When to start complementary foods?
Gradually replace one breastfeed with complementary foods. First for lunch, then for dinner and finally for lunch. The mouse eats breakfast with the usual dairy food.
Starting complementary foods with HiPP products is easy. The first spoons will be vegetable or fruit purees HiPP:
First step: lunch
We recommend that you start complementary foods at lunchtime with HiPP vegetable puree (for example, "Zucchini. My first puree", "Cauliflower. My first puree" or "Broccoli .My first puree"). Then, for satiety, feed your baby as always: breast or bottle. The amount of vegetable puree can be increased daily by 1 spoon. Be patient if your baby does not immediately love vegetables. Try repeating the vegetable puree in the following days. Next week, you can expand your diet with other varieties of HiPP vegetables (for example, "Carrots. My first puree" or "Potatoes. My first puree").
If your baby tolerates vegetables well, in the third week you can introduce grain porridge into the diet, and as a dessert, offer a few spoons of fruit puree enriched with vitamin C. Vitamin C helps to better absorb iron in the body.
Once your baby starts eating a whole serving of mashed potatoes for lunch, you can eliminate breast milk or formula during that meal.
Tip: Reheat as much puree as needed for feeding. Store leftover puree in a sealed jar in the refrigerator. Use the contents of the opened jar within a day.
Important! If you are using a microwave, please remove the lid before reheating puree. Stir after heating. To prevent damage to the jar, please use only a plastic spoon. Always check food temperature before feeding.

How to properly dilute infant formula
Properly prepare milk formula - it would seem that it is easier, read the instructions on the box and do as it is written. But sometimes the simplest things, especially when they concern a newborn, can simply put parents in a stupor.
- How to properly dilute the mixture
- How to prepare infant formula
- How long does reconstituted infant formula keep?
- What water to dilute infant formula
- Water temperature for infant formula
- Preparing Night Feeding Formula
- Infant milk formula on the road
You should know that no formula, even the most modern adapted formula, can completely replace mother's milk. Transferring a child to artificial feeding should be a conscious and forced step, and not the advice of a friend and the desire to make life a little easier for yourself, to have freedom of movement or your own guesses and assumptions that there is not enough breast milk. The deficit that is formed in the child's body without mother's milk cannot be filled with anything.
How to mix
correctly The first thing to do is to read the instructions from the manufacturer. It always describes how to prepare infant formula. It is worth paying attention to the following important points:
- in what proportion to dilute the milk mixture (often, one scoop per 30 ml of water)
- at what temperature is the mixture prepared
- recommended amount of ready-made formula for children of different ages
- how long and under what conditions it is possible to store opened packaging
How to properly prepare formula for a newborn
The intestines and mouth of a healthy baby are sterile. The task of the parent is to give the baby the opportunity to gradually adapt to the surrounding space, before starting to acquaint him with pathogenic microflora (in other words, microbes).
In all cases of contact with children's things, food and the child himself, be sure and always wash your hands with soap and water. Of course, in any case, the baby will have to get acquainted with the surrounding microorganisms, but when he is a few days old, it is too early.
Since you need to prepare the formula just before feeding, be prepared to do it to the heart-rending cries of a hungry baby. It is possible that under such conditions it will not be possible to prepare sterile bottles in cold blood - it is better and more convenient to have at least two of them.
It is better to prepare and cover a clean bottle with a dry towel in advance than to rush around the house and remember where to put it after feeding when the baby is crying from hunger. Of course, in theory you need to wash the bottle immediately after feeding, but in practice, babies miraculously make adjustments to your schedule.
So, when all the necessary preparations are made, according to the instructions, we determine the desired ratio of water and dry mixture according to the age of your baby. Pour water of the required temperature into a sterile bottle or bring it to the desired temperature in the bottle. We pour the required number of measuring spoons, after removing a slide from them (you can use the back of a knife).
The measuring spoon must be dry. Follow this strictly and store infant formula in a dry place. Milk powder is very hygroscopic and perfectly absorbs moisture, and if the rules are not followed, the mixture will instantly begin to clump.
Close the bottle with a cap and shake very well so that there are no lumps left in the mixture (you can check for light). Just in case, we check the temperature of the mixture by dropping it on our wrist. After feeding, pour out the rest of the mixture.
Some mothers, trying to feed the baby more satisfyingly, increase the concentration of the dry mixture in the water. Doing this is strictly prohibited. This can lead to obesity or other metabolic disorders in the child.
To some, these measures may seem unnecessary, and, of course, no one can force you to do this. But do not forget that the first three months of a child’s life without this will complicate colic and aggravate the situation with hastily washed bottles, believe me, it’s not worth it.
How long can reconstituted infant formula be stored
A very common question of interest to all parents is how long can prepared infant formula be stored? Ideally, ready-made milk formula is eaten immediately and not stored. The longer the mixture is prepared, the more chances are given to multiply harmful microbes that love heat and milky environment. And not just the necessary bifidobacteria, for which you lovingly created the optimal temperature. The storage time of reconstituted infant formula should be kept to a minimum. Remember that prepared milk formula should be stored can not even be in the refrigerator.
The bottle and nipple must be washed and sterilized before each formula preparation. You can learn more about sterilizing feeding bottles here.
What kind of water to dilute infant formula
An urgent question for parents - is it possible to dilute formula with infant water? For decades, boiled water has been used to prepare the mixture. Now they began to think about the fact that boiling kills water, deprives oxygen and other trace elements. Today you will not surprise anyone with special baby water for drinking and formula preparation. It does not need to be boiled, it is enough to heat it to the optimum temperature.
What are the benefits of baby water?
- at all stages of harvesting, water undergoes strict sanitary control
- cleaning uses a multi-stage filter system
- unlike boiled, it is not devoid of oxygen and other useful trace elements
- mineralization decreases in baby water (in dry mixtures, they try to choose the optimal ratio of trace elements and water with increased mineralization can disrupt these proportions)
If you want to use water from a well, it is better to hand it over for analysis to a sanitary and epidemiological station.
Water temperature for infant formula
The water temperature is of fundamental importance for the preparation of formula, which must be indicated on the packaging. Almost all mixtures now contain bifidobacteria that are beneficial for the child's intestines. Beneficial bacteria, unlike harmful ones, are rather gentle microorganisms. At a temperature higher than that indicated in the instructions, they will simply die.
In addition, of course, the temperature of the water simply needs to be comfortable for the child, 36 - 37 ºC. This is the temperature of mother's milk. Therefore, if possible, use a thermometer to prepare infant formula. Fortunately, the assortment of baby stores is now replete with products that make life easier for moms. Well, if there is no thermometer, it does not matter. Put a few drops of the prepared mixture from the bottle on your wrist. If the temperature of the mixture is optimal, then you will not feel it on your wrist.
It is not advisable to heat the finished mixture. Adapted infant formula is not a product that can be heated and cooled without consequences. It's good bacteria, remember? And not only. But if it so happened that while you were preparing for feeding, the mixture has cooled down, warm it up under running hot water.
Do not use the microwave to heat up the mixture! You will not be able to control the degree of heating of the liquid bottle, which can lead to an irreversible change in the structure and composition of the formula.
Night feeding formula
The safest option for the baby and gentle for the mother is to pour water into a sterile bottle in the evening and put it in the warmer. Most warmers are capable of maintaining a constant set temperature in the bottle. Pour the dry mix into the dry mix dispenser.
Now you can prepare the mixture on autopilot at night. All that remains to be done is to get from the dispenser into the bottle and mix thoroughly. Just in case, do not forget to check the temperature of the prepared mixture. Ready. You can start feeding a hungry baby.
Infant formula on the go
All modern parents want to be mobile. We must pay tribute to the manufacturers of children's goods - it has now become much easier to provide a child with food on a trip than it was, say, in the last century.
