How do you pronounce Holle? Is it like Holly or Hall..?
Do I need to supplement any baby dha with this forumla?
It does not have added DHA. I recommend discussing this question with your pedi.
Does this formula have iron in it?
How many 2-3oz bottles can be made with one box of Lebenswert formula?
See our FAQ page.
Does a Lebenswert membership cover shipping? Or, does it only guarantee availability of the product?
No- It only guarantees availability.
I’m looking to start my 7 month old on a safe formulas. I see you recommend Lebenswert stage 1 for the entire first year. Is there a difference in nutritional content (other than the maltodextrin) from stage 1,2 and 3? In particular I’m concerned about iron. Does the stage 1 have enough iron for his age or should I supplement with a vitamin?
I see you recommend Lebenswert stage one for the entire first year. What is the difference in nutritional value between stage 1,2 and 3? If I give stage one to my 7 month old, should I supplement with a vitamin? Does stage 1 contain iron?
Hi! I do not necessarily recommend Lebenswert 1 for the first year of life. I’ve said that it is acceptable to feed your LO stage 1 for the first year, but that is up to the parent to decide. We don’t sell stage 2 and 3 because they are the same product as Holle 2 and 3. Stage 1 does contain iron. Stage 2 and 3 do contain more iron than stage 1.
Hi, I’ve started supplementing my 5 week old on Lebenswert 5 days ago…working up to half his feeds on it, the other half breast milk, he’s been a gassy baby from the start even just on the breast milk, but the formula is causing more gas, much harder poops (i know from my previous baby formula always causes the poop to become harder and change color) but he’s clearly uncomfortable from it, how long should i wait to let his tummy get used to it before I switch to different formula?
I’d say 2 weeks unless your LO is too uncomfortable.
I don’t see iron listed on the label but I see from one the replies Stage 1 does contain iron. Can you tell me how much iron is in there??
It is “Eisen”
What is the recommended age range (months) for this particular formula. I am going to begin introducing my 8 month old to formula. Which one do you recommend I give him, Lebenswert Stage 1 or Holle Stage 2?
It’s really up to you. Holle 2 has more iron than Lebenswert 1 and is specially formulated for babies after the 6 month. We address this question on our FAQ page, too.
We just received our order of Lebenswert, thank you! Trying to figure out the preparation instructions though. I read the product page but not sure I’m following the mL for water amount/drink amount and scoops. Can you just tell me how many scoops per ounce of water?
It is roughly 1 scoop per fluid ounce of powder, but it is not quite exact.
Why isn’t this approved by the FDA? Is it because it’s not made in the US?
It is because these companies have never applied for FDA approval. They are not seeking to sell commercially in the USA.
The FDA does not approve any formula. There is the 1980 Formula Act that requires all formula sold in the US meets a preset standard. You can Google and read about this legislation.
Thanks for the info!
Is the milk from grass fed cows?
Does the powdered milk need to be refrigerated once opened? Ordered 2 boxes about 3 months ago just in case…we made it to 9 months! Just starting to use it today,probably a bottle a day to start and then increase for the next 3 months. Does this sound ok or should I be trying another tactic?
Way to go on 9 months! That is awesome! The powder needs to be stored in an airtight container, but it does not need to be refrigerated. Yes, a bottle a day and gradually increasing is a great plan. You could also try mixing bottles half prepared formula and half breastmilk.
Hi! Goat milk 1, which is formulated for babies 0+ months would be an ideal choice for you.
What’s the difference between this formula and holle stage 1??? Could you please list the pros and cons in both? Thank you.
Hi there, can the formula be prepared and stored in the fridge? If so, for how long? Same 24 hours as the US products? The box only says to “prepare it fresh” each time. Thanks!
Yes, you can definitely prepare and store for up to 24 hours in the fridge.
If I prepare a days worth and store it in the fridge for up to 24 hours, do I need to let it cool down to a certain temperature before putting it in the fridge?
I have always moved it straight to the fridge, but it wouldn’t hurt to let it cool 20-30 minutes first.
If you prepare the formula and then store it in the fridge are you able to heat it up for feeding?
Sorry – just to confirm. You can mix the formula with the boiling water….refrigerate and then heat back up for a feeding?
Yes, that is correct.
Where can I find the mixing ratios in English for Lebenswert? Directions on Package are not English
Does the water really need to be boiled and cooled to 50 degrees celcius to prepare this formula?
Hi! Please see the FAQ page. We address your question there. Thanks!
Is it ok to supplement with lebenswert formula 1 or is it exclusively for bottle feeding? Please advise.
Hi- Yes! It is a great choice for supplementing.
Is it ok to supplement with lebenswert formula 1 while breastfeeding or is it exclusively for bottle/formula feeding? Please advise.
What’s the best way to transition from lebenswert stage 1 to stage 2?
Aside from Holle 2 being for 6 months onwards and Holle 3 for 1 year onwards. The vitamin and mineral content of Holle 3 is higher than Holle 2. You may want to check these images for comparison.
Holle 2 : http://www.holle.ch/data/catalog/documents/packshots/milchen/FM2/web_HOL41744_Pck_Relaunch_MILCHEN_D-F_RZ_FM2.pdf
It’s not necessary to transition to stage 2 if your LO is doing well on stage 1. Stage 2 formulas do have more iron than a first infant milk, which is important because a baby’s natural iron stores begin to deplete at 6 months of age.
How many calories are in a serving? This is the sole diet for my 3 month old. Do I need to supplement any additional vitamins?
Lebenswert Stage 1 has 69 kcal per 100 ml or 3.38 oz. By this, your baby would get 500 kcal a day enough to satisfy his diet.
Hi, Can I prepare a bottle of Lebenswert 1 formula and then refrigerate it for later use? If so for how long?
-Thank you in advance
Hi! Yes, a prepared bottle of formula can be stored for up to 24 hours in the refrigerator.
The fat content of Lebenswert 1 is 3.1 g compared to 5.6 g in American formula. Is this something to be concerned with?
That would be a question for your pediatrician, but if your baby is staying at a healthy weight, you shouldn’t be concerned.
Thank you. I actually see that based on serving size it is roughly the same amount of fat. Just had to do some math! 🙂
Is it 1 scoop per 3oz of water? I’m not making a bunch at once, just a bottle at a time.
It should be 1 scoop per 1 fluid ounce of water.
Oh wow, I did the math wrong I guess from the conversion! So 3 scoops for 3 ounces! Thanks so much!
Which formula do you recommend that I feed my 6 week old baby for gas problems? I tried giving my baby Lenenswert 1 but she would get fussy and gassy we switched her to organic similac tummy care out of desperation and the gas went away. I really like Hipp and don’t want to continue similac, do you have any suggestions?
Hi! I’ve had a lot of luck with HiPP first infant milk. If Lebenswert is causing excessive gas, I would definitely give it a try.
Can you feed baby Lebenswert straight from refrigerator or does it have to be heated back up?
Yes, absolutely (if your baby will drink cold formula)!
Does this mixed formula have to be tossed within an hour of the baby drinking from the bottle like most other formulas?
Hi, yes it does need to be discarded within an hour of the baby drinking from the bottle.
If I am on the go, can I mix this in room temperature filtered water and serve? Or does it have to be warm? Likewise, can I mix in room temperature filtered water and put in a bottle warmer for serving? Thank you!
