How to Prepare to Lebenswert Stage 1

Here is a step-by-step guide on how to prepare your baby´s Lebenswert Stage 1. It's important to read these instructions before you start, in order to be sure everything goes smoothly.

To make the first stage of Lebenswert baby formula, you will need to gather the following ingredients and equipment:

  •        A measuring spoon
  •        A feeding bottle
  •        1 box of Lebenswert baby formula Stage 1
  •        A kettle for boiling water


Step 1

To correctly prepare the formula, you’ll want to start off with fresh water, clean bottles, a measuring spoon to avoid bacteria or yeast infections.  First, sterilize everything and this includes the feeding bottle, its nipples, ring, and other utensils that you will be used to prepare the baby formula.

Do not forget to wash your hands thoroughly with warm water and soap.

Step 2

Boil new clean water for about 3 to 5 minutes.  Please do not use repeatedly boiled water, microwaved water, or artificially softened water.

 Also, avoid water that you don’t know its source since this could be contaminated with industrial chemicals, fertilizers, pesticides, and other dangerous pollutants that threaten the development of young children’s brains and nervous systems.’

Step 3

Give it some time to cool down, to a temperature of 122 F/50C. Yes, water has to be cooled down for baby formula. Babies can't have hot water as it might cause burns.

Lebenswert Baby Formula Stage 1 comes in powder form and you just add water to prepare it. Many first-time parents are left wondering why the formula must be prepared with room temperature water, though it may not seem very appealing.

The simple answer is that there is no need to worry about this because the special temperature is critical for its taste and nutritional value, so the mix will still be fresh and flavorful when your baby takes the milk.

Stage 4

Fill 2/3 of the feeding bottle with water

Step 5

Take the measuring spoon and scoop the baby formula. If your baby is 1 week old, you will need to consult your pediatrician on how many scoops of baby formula you need to give per 1oz of water.

If your baby is 2 to 4 weeks old-add 3 scoops, for a 2 months old baby-add 4 scoops, for a 3 to 4 months old-add 5 scoops, and for 4 to 6 months- add scoops of baby formula. Refer to the table below for more information.

Step 6

Put the cap on the feeding bottle well and shake until the baby formula has dissolved or mixed well. Formulas contain proteins and carbohydrates which have different densities. Shaking the formula helps to make it smooth by blending particles of different densities together.

Also, you need to shake well the mixture so it may not form a water lump at the bottom, which is hard and not easy to dissolve when warming up the milk

Step 7

Test the temperature and make sure it’s 98.6 F / 37 C. You can use the back of your hand to make sure that the milk is not too hot.  The formula is ready to feed your baby.

Other Instructions for Preparation of Lebenswert Stage 1

If you are intending to prepare Lebenswert Baby Formula stage 1, I strongly recommend that you follow the preparation instructions exactly as described.

Preparation instructions are always given in the labels of baby formula. While this might be common knowledge for mothers and even fathers, it is good to remind yourself to follow the instructions when you are handling a baby’s food to keep it safe for him or her.

Otherwise, you might end up doing harm to your baby. Every step of the preparation process is important especially if the baby is below 6 months old. The wrong preparation can lead to adverse effects on your baby's health so you need to follow the instructions carefully.

Is it Important to Boil the Water?

Boiling water ensures that it's free of bacteria and other harmful substances. It is necessary if you bought the bottle straight from the box. You have to sterilize it before use.

Use only the recommended scoop. It is extremely important not to use more than the recommended amount of baby formula in a single feeding. Use only the scoop provided and fill the bottle with the correct amount of water, as too much Baby Formula can cause discomfort for your baby's digestive tract.
