Baby Formula Preparations Guide

Updated: October-21-2020 / Author: MyOrganicCompany Team

How to prepare European baby formulas from Holle, HiPP, Kendamil, Lebenswert, and Loulouka requires different steps than American formula. In this guide, we will provide all the information needed - including preparation, storage, and bottle amounts per age.

 

Which baby formulas are covered here?

Preparation for European Baby Formula



Mixing all of the formulas require the same preparation, the only changes are the amount of scoops and water needed per brand and stage.

We offer the preparation instructions in English with every shipment, but you can always refer back here in case you lose your instructions, or simply don't want to keep the paper copy.

1. Always use sterilized bottles and nipples. Boil the amount of water needed (or more) and let it cool to between 104 and 122 degrees Fahrenheit.

2. Use the scoop included in your formula to measure the exact amount of formula necessary. Refer to the charts below for the amount of water to include as well.

3. Pour half of the water in the bottle, add the necessary scoops of formula, close the bottle tightly, and then shake to mix.

4. Add the remaining water, seal the bottle tightly, and shake again to fully mix. Check the temperature is about 98° F (you can also test on wrist to make sure it isn't too hot).

Serve your baby!

Extra Tips: 

  • Mixed formula lasts up to 24 hours if stored in fridge, but only 2 hours if stored at room temperature.
  • Use exact measurements: Most measuring cups have ml on the reverse side.
  • Use a sterilized bottle to ensure no bacteria is present in the bottle.
  • Your baby should not re-feed later from the same bottle with any leftover formula; always clean/sterilize bottle afterward.
    • This will ensure your baby does not get sick from leftover bacteria.
