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. Wash hands and sterilize all equipment according to the manufacturer’s instructions.
  2. Bring water to a rolling boil for one minute, then turn off the heat. Let cool for no longer than 30 minutes. Do not use artificially softened or repeatedly boiled water. 
  3. Measure the required amount of water into a sterilized bottle (referring to the Feeding Guide).
  4. Using the scoop provided add the correct number of scoops of powder – 1 level scoop of powder to each fluid ounce of water. Level off the powder. Do not press the powder.
  5. Place the sterilized nipple on the bottle and shake well until the powder has dissolved (approx. 15 seconds).
  6. Cool to drinking temperature (approx. 98.6 degrees Fahrenheit / 37 degrees Celsius) by holding the bottle under cold running water. ALWAYS test the temperature of the milk before feeding.

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.
