How BabyNes Was Born

Gerber has been helping babies get the best start in life for more than 85 years, through science-based nutritional products and services.

We recommend breastfeeding as the ideal nutrition for babies. The World Health Organization (WHO) recommends exclusive breastfeeding until age six months. Nestlé supports these recommendations and recommends continued breastfeeding for as long as possible after introduction of complementary foods.*

So when recent research on breast milk composition showed that it evolves as babies grow, we created BabyNes. Inspired by breast milk, it has six stages of formula capsules with a single purpose: nourishing the greatness in your baby.

The evolution of breast milk

The Next Generation of Infant Nutrition

BabyNes combines the six stages of formula capsules with a Wi-Fi connected BabyNes Machine and smart services and support to nourish each stage of your baby’s development.

From first smiles to first words to first steps, you might even call BabyNes a formula for success. Because a brilliant future starts with smart nutrition.

Gerber and Nestlé: A legacy of nutritional expertise

Henri Nestlé invented the world’s first infant formula for newborns 140 years ago. Since then, Gerber and Nestlé have consistently been on the leading edge of innovation when it comes to infant nutrition. After years of research, we are proud to introduce BabyNes, designed to break new ground in infant nutrition.

About our heritage

Nestlé and Gerber have long, rich histories of supporting the healthy growth and development of infants and toddlers. The Nestlé Research Centre (NRC), the world’s largest private food and nutrition research institute, has over 300 scientists who are continuously working towards creating the safest, most nutritious food available.

About Nestlé, Gerber and Nutrition

The science of infant and child nutrition

Nestlé and Gerber are committed to improving baby and child nutrition through innovation, backed by research. One of the most notable efforts was the Gerber-sponsored Feeding Infants and Toddlers Study (FITS) conducted in 2002.

This dietary survey of approximately 3,000 infants and toddlers 4 to 24 months old—the first undertaking of its size—significantly increased the knowledge and understanding of how young children were really eating. It's information we are using to help inform our ongoing development of new products and services.

With BabyNes, innovation goes hand-in-hand with environmental protection. Both the BabyNes Machine and formula capsules have many features designed to reduce energy consumption, support recycling and reduce waste, including:

BabyNes Machine:
