  1. Hi there,
    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?

  2. 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.

  3. 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?

  4. 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??

  5. Hello,
    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.

  6. Hi there,

    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?

  7. 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.

  8. What’s the difference between this formula and holle stage 1??? Could you please list the pros and cons in both? Thank you.

  9. 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!

  10. Is it ok to supplement with lebenswert formula 1 while breastfeeding or is it exclusively for bottle/formula feeding? Please advise.

  11. Hi,

    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?


    • Hi Nina,

      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.

      Thank you!

  12. 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

  13. 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?

    • Hi Alison,

      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!

      • Thank you. I actually see that based on serving size it is roughly the same amount of fat. Just had to do some math! 🙂

  14. 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?

  15. 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!
