Lebenswert Baby Formula

Lebenswert formula is modeled after breastmilk and made with gently processed organically skimmed milk sourced from cows raised on Bioland farms, organically vegetable oilseeds, and organic whey powders.

Lebenswert formula contains several important ingredients for your baby including folate or folic acid, vitamin B12, vitamin C, vitamin A, and DHA from seafood (such as salmon, tuna, and sardines).

How Long Does a Box of Lebenswert Formula Last?

Lebenswert formula has a storage life of approximately two weeks from the time the formula is opened. This is comparable to other European baby formula brands.

How Many Bottles of Formula Does a Box of Lebenswert Make?

One box (400g) will make 20 bottles of formula on average. This number depends on how old your baby is and how much formula he or she requires.

How Long Is Lebenswert Baby Formula Good For?

Formula should be prepared when intended to be used. Leftovers should not be heated up. Formula can be stored in the refrigerator but should be at room temperature before feeding it to your baby.

Can Unused Formula Be Reused?

No. Leftover formula should be thrown away if it has been left out to avoid bacteria that can multiply since the last feeding. Additionally, unopened infant formula containers should be stored in a cool, dry place such as a pantry or cabinet.

Ingredients Used in Lebenswert Baby Formula

Premium quality and carefully chosen natural products are essential for healthy babies. Fortunately, Lebenswert Organic Formula meets your child’s nutritional needs.

Organic Vegetable Oils

Organic vegetable oils are an important component of any infant formula, these natural sources of fat are regularly added to ensure that infants receive the right balance of essential fatty acids for healthy brain development.

In Lebenswert formula, a combination of three different organic vegetable fats are used, namely organic palm kernel, organic rapeseed, and organic sunflower oil.

Vitamins & Minerals

Lebenswert formula like any other infant formula is full of important nutrients to support your child’s health, including some of the same nutrients found in human milk. Some of these nutrients include: Vitamine C, Vitamine E, Iron Gluconate, Sodium Chloride, Calcium Carbonate, Potassium Chloride, and Zinc Sulfate.

Organic Whey Powder

Whey protein isolate is a dried fluid that remains after the liquid part of dairy products has been removed.

It’s used in infant formula and followed-on formula to add organic lactose, proteins, fats, and minerals. If there’s any part of the ingredient list that says “partly” demineralized whey powder, then it means that some of the natural minerals found in whole milk have been partially stripped out. Cow and goat milk contains more calcium than human breastmilk, so they need less protein added to them to balance out their nutrition.

How to Prepare Lebenswert Formula

Each individual formula includes its own set of instructions. Refer to the individual product pages to find the English preparation instructions.

Wash hands and sterilize all equipment following the manufacturer's instructions.

Boil 1 liter of fresh drinking water and leave to cool for no longer than 30 minutes. Do not use artificially softened or repeatedly boiled water.

Measure the required amount of water into a sterilized bottle (refer to the feeding guide).

Using only the scoop provided, add the correct number of scoops of powder - 1 level scoop of powder to each fluid ounce of water (approx. 30ml). Level off the powder using the scoop leveler. Do not press down on the powder.

Place cap(s) back on the bottle and shake vigorously until all the powder has dissolved (usually 15 seconds).

Cool down the formula to a drinking temperature of approx. 98.6°F (37°C) by holding the bottle under cool running water. Feed immediately. Always test the temperature of the milk before feeding every time.

What’s the Difference Between Holle & Lebenswert Formula?

There are two main differences between Holle and Lebenswert: Maltodextrine, which is a polysaccharide derived from starch, and lecithin, which is an emulsifier (food additive). Holle contains a small amount of maltodextrin, whereas Lebenswert does not. Lecithin is present in both Holle and Lebenswert.

Lebenswert Formula Certification

All Lebenswert formulas are carried out by independent certification institutes. European formula is considered some of the best baby formula available due to it being free of GMOs, artificial colors and preservatives, and flavor enhancers.

In addition, Lebenswert checks all products to numerous physical and chemical parameters that are far stricter than those stipulated by law. Refer to each product page for a full list of vitamins, minerals, and nutritional facts related to Lebenswert products.

Formula Preparation Best Practices

Infant formula in a container should be used within one month of being opened. Write the date that the container was opened on the lid to ensure you stay within this window.

Make sure the scoop is clean prior to scooping powder from the container.Make sure the lid is sealed tight and secure when finished. Unfinished baby formula that is refrigerated quickly can be stored for feeding within 24 hours. Otherwise, they should be discarded.

Why Are US Parents Choosing European Formula?

One reason is the availability of different options. Currently, there isn’t a US-based company that meets the FDA regulations for goat milk formula while European formula meets higher standards than the FDA. The European formula is also more hypoallergenic and doesn’t contain additive sugars.

Lebenswert Formula Stages

Lebenswert structures its babies’ formula according to the infants’ developmental stage. This is done to match the nutritional complexity of breastmilk which is a dynamic fluid changing to meet infants’ needs at different times.

Also, your child’s energy needs may vary with his or her stage of development, and quantities of certain vitamins and minerals may be more or less important.

Lebenswert makes baby formulas for infants from birth through age 3. They offer their products in three different stages.

Lebenswert Stage 1

Lebenswert infant formula is designed to be used as an alternative to or supplement to breast milk. Its organic infant formula is suitable from birth until six months old. It can also be used throughout the weaning period for supplementary feeding. Many parents will be happy to know that the only carbohydrates in the Lebenswert Organic Stage 1 infant nutrition product are organic lactose, which makes it extra gentle on a baby’s digestive system.

Appropriate age for Stage 1 formula:

0 - 6 months old

More Info

Lebenswert Stage 2

Lebenswert stage 2 is lactose-free and is an excellent choice for babies between six and ten months old. It contains no artificial colors, flavors, preservatives, or additives. It is gentle on the stomach and ideal for infants who suffer from digestion issues since it has no added sugar. Six-month-old babies begin transitioning to solid food and drinking milk. Their digestive system is not fully developed yet so they cannot digest lactose (milk sugar). You can give them breast milk or infant formula until they reach 12 months old. Breastfed babies get enough nutrition through breastfeeding alone.

Appropriate age for Stage 2 formula:

6 - 10 months old

More Info

Lebenswert Stage 3

Lebenswert Stage 3 is a great choice for infants 10 months or older following feeding with Lebenswert stage 2. There are higher levels of starch and nutrients than with Stage 2 formula. This makes for a much more satiating feeding.

Appropriate age for Stage 3 formula:

10+ months old

More Info


Lebenswert’s Organic infant food contains natural ingredients and no artificial chemicals or flavors, additives, GMOs, steroidal substances, or hormone supplements. It offers organic infant formulas that provide the best ingredients and nutrients needed for healthy development.

Lebenswert Stage 1 uses lactose as its primary carbohydrate source, which is the same as found in breast milk. However, Lebenswert Stage 2 uses maltodextrin and starch. Maltodextrin is a natural, flavorless thickener that balances the sweetness of the baby formula without the use of additional sugars and sweeteners.

To continue your baby’s proper development with proper nutrition, it’s advised that they progress through the feeding stages as they reach the proper age. However, a gradual transition in formula stages is advised.

Start with a combination of three parts old formula and one part new formula. As your baby accepts the new formula, move to 50% previous stage formula and 50% new formula. Continue this gradual transition over the course of several feedings to two weeks.

It may be best to only purchase a small amount of the new formula to see if your baby likes it. It may take one to two weeks to see any changes in burping, spit ups, stool, or gas. Ultimately, you’ll want to be feeding your baby only the next stage formula until the recommended age to progress onward.

There are many reasons to choose Lebenswert baby formula.

  1. European baby formulas have higher formula standards than those in the US.
  2. European baby formula includes only organic ingredients. They don’t contain GMOs, preservatives, additives, or other harmful ingredients.
  3. European baby formulas are designed to mimic breast milk, making them easily digestible and high in nutrients.
  4. Lebenswert is made by Holle, and is certified by Bioland as 100% organic. This means that all of the ingredients in the formula are organic and have been grown without the use of harmful pesticides or other chemicals. Lebenswert formula also contains all the essential minerals and vitamins that your baby needs for proper development.

Usually around 12 months old, you can begin transitioning your baby off of baby formula. It’s best to transition to cow’s milk since your baby still needs food sources rich in nutrients and whole cow’s milk meets this requirement quite nicely. It is best to hold off on this transition until the one-year mark to ensure that your baby’s digestive system is ready for it.

Switching from formula to milk is done in the same manner as transitioning from stage to stage formula by combining already prepared formula with whole cow’s milk. You may want to start with one-third of cow’s milk and two-thirds formula, then 50% cow’s milk and 50% formula. Make this transition over the course of a few weeks to ensure that your baby has time to get used to the whole milk. Additionally, it may be best to warm the cow’s milk since baby formula is fed to them warm.
