Lebenswert Formula Preparation Instructions

*Always consult with your baby’s pediatrician prior to feeding them formula and on best practices and preparation techniques.

 

Preparing formula with boiled water:

Ask your baby's doctor if you should boil water when preparing formula, and whether or not you need to boil utensils, bottles, nipples, and rings in water before each use. If you choose to boil, follow these steps:

 

  1. Bring water to a rolling boil for one minute, then turn off the heat. Excessive boiling can increase the concentration of impurities.
  2. Let the water cool to room temperature before adding to formula. Making formula with boiling water can cause clumping and decrease the nutritional value.
  3. Once mixed, sprinkle a few drops on the inside of your wrist to make sure it is not too hot.

 

Note: Bottled or filtered water is not a suitable replacement for water that has been boiled, but it might be a better alternative to tap water in some areas. If you are concerned about lead or other harmful substances in your water, talk to your healthcare professional before making formula with tap water.


How to mix formula:

For proper mixing, follow these steps:

 

  1. Wash your hands thoroughly with soap and warm water.
  2. Measure and pour desired amount of water into baby bottle.
  3. Add unpacked, level scoop(s) of powder to the bottle as directed. Return dry scoop to box.
  4. Put the cap on the bottle and shake. (Tip: Moving your wrist in a twisting motion helps powder formula mix more quickly and more thoroughly.)
  5. Feed or store immediately in refrigerator.
