This is a common question we get at Organic Baby Food Shop. As all of our organic baby formulas have the instructions in German on the packaging, preparing your first bottle can be somehow challenging. Hopefully, with this article, we can address all of your concerns, but if you have further doubts please feel free to reach out to us.
Choosing the right formula is essential! Make sure you do your research before making this important decision. Try to read and study the ingredients to avoid exposing your baby to any unnecessary and possibly harmful ingredients.
All of our organic baby formulas, Holle all stages, HiPP and Lebenswert all stages are recommended by pediatricians, so if you choose to shop with us we can assure you that you have already made the right decision.
In order for your baby to receive the appropriate nutrition, it is important to get the formula preparation right. Adding too much liquid to the formula, for instance, will dilute the essential nutrients and can impact your babies´nutrition. It is important to read the instructions on the box.
Either if you are only formula feeding only or supplementing formula with breast milk, the preparation and handling are very easy once you have all the basics.
Though it is advised to follow the instructions on the baby formula package, especially for the correct measurements of the product, here are the basic guidelines you can use to prepare your formula.
How to prepare organic baby formula
Let's get started!
Hint: If you are in a rush, you can skip step 3, 4, 5 and directly prepare the formula with bottled water, shake well and warm the bottle under running hot water until 90-100 degrees Fahrenheit. If you need more information please visit our preparation guide.
Clean the area where the baby formula will be prepared: We avoid toxins in our babies environment and only clean with natural products. Make sure the area where you prepare the formula is clean and dry.
Make sure your hands are clean: wash your hands thoroughly with organic soap and warm water and dry them.
Have the bottle ready by sterilizing it. Boil water and let the baby bottle soak in it for approximately 5 minutes. We like to use bottles that are not made out of plastic to avoid exposure to toxins.
Use filtered water to prepare the formula, poor water into a pot and bring water to boil for 1 minute.
Pour water into the sterilized bottle and let it cool (ideal temperature for consumption is between 90-100 degrees Fahrenheit).
- Add formula to the bottle, close it and shake well.
Feed the formula immediately or store in the fridge, always check the temperature before feeding.
- Do not keep formula for longer than 24 hours in the fridge.
