Lebenswert Stage 1 Organic Follow-On Infant Milk Formula is a fantastic, nutritionally-complete formula for babies from birth to six months. It’s produced by Holle, one of the most trusted formula brands in Europe, with over 85 years of experience in the industry. 

You’ll be pleased to learn that there are no chemical additives in Lebenswert organic infant formulas and no artificial nutrients, artificial preservatives, gluten, soy, or GMO ingredients. Lebenswert formulas are manufactured and packaged in Germany, and they never contain corn syrup, glucose syrup, or sucrose, unlike so many of the highly-processed formulas produced in the United States.



   Organic skim milk
   As close to breastmilk as possible
   Supports learning and cognitive function
   Sustainable manufacturing
   No maltodextrin or starch
   Certified organic to Bioland standards (one of the most stringent organic certifications in the world) 
   Manufactured and packaged in Germany 

Lebenswert formulas are made with organic ingredients that have been certified by Bioland, Germany’s largest organic food association. The requirements for Bioland certification are much higher than the European Union’s minimum standards for organic agriculture. 

Bioland certification guarantees that the organic skim milk in Lebenswert formulas comes from exceptionally well-cared-for cows raised on biodynamic farms that are governed by strict rules about the use of pesticides, antibiotics, fertilizers, and hormones. Bioland-certified farms must also demonstrate a commitment to the highest standards of sustainability, soil quality, and the ethical treatment of animals.


   Your baby is 0-6 months old 
   You want a formula at the highest organic standards (Bioland certification) 
   You want a gluten-free formula with few, simple ingredients 

Lebenswert formulas are known for their exceptionally high quality standards. They don’t contain chemical additives, artificial nutrients, artificial preservatives, gluten, soy, or GMO ingredients. Lebenswert Stage 3 is manufactured and packaged in Germany, and does not contain corn syrup, glucose syrup, or sucrose, unlike many of the highly-processed formulas produced in the United States. 

With its simple list of clean, organic ingredients, Lebenswert Stage 1 organic infant formula is one of the best alternatives to breast milk you’ll ever find. Parents are frequently impressed by just how similar this formula is to breast milk, in terms of taste, appearance, and nutritional content. 

Similar to Lebenswert Stage 2 and Stage 3, Lebenswert Stage 1 does not contain starch or maltodextrin, and it uses organic lactose as its primary carbohydrate source. Lebenswert Stage 1 is made with organic whey powder, a blend of organic vegetable oils, and all of the vitamins and minerals that your baby needs to ensure a healthy start in life.

Lebenswert Stage 1 is a gentle, nutritious formula for newborns upwards, made in Germany using organic cow’s milk. As well as meeting strict EU organic regulations, it meets the even tougher German Bioland standard, so you’ll know your little one is getting only the absolute best. What more could a growing baby ask for?

The biggest difference between Lebenswert Stage 1 and Stage 2 is maltodextrin and starch. The Lebenswert Stage 1 has NO maltodextrin and NO starch but instead substitutes organic lactose to provide additional nutritive content while the Lebenswert Stage 2 formula does contain maltodextrin and starch. Both are exceptional formulas and it’s really a matter of personal preference which one you choose.

Lebenswert Stage 1 is best for babies ages 0 to 6 months, either to supplement breast milk or completely replace it. It’s made with natural, easily-digestible organic cow’s milk that’s gentle on even sensitive tummies. Lebenswert Stage 1 can be given to complement breastfeeding or exclusively on its own. It contains lactose as the only carbohydrate, making the milk easy for the babies to digest. Since Lebenswert Stage 1 is Bioland certified, its ingredients are 100% organic.

Yes! All Lebenswert formulas are made with nourishing organic skim milk and contain the long-chain fatty acid Omega 6 (DHA), derived from fish oil, that’s scientifically proven to be essential to the growth of healthy brains in infants. It also contains vital vitamins: A, C, D, E, K and B-complex.

Lebenswert Stage 1 is gentle on the gut and made without the harmful additives that little tummies often find hard to break down, including starch, soy, and corn syrup. It’s made from only natural, organic cow’s milk and modeled on real breastmilk. If your baby’s reacted poorly to a conventional formula in the past, Lebenswert Stage 1 may suit them better.

Yes! Lebenswert Stage 1 will help your baby develop a strong, healthy immune system and fight off infection. It includes vital vitamins A, C, D, K, E, and B-complex and provides a perfect healthy balance of carbs, proteins, and fats. In addition, Lebenswert is free of added sugars, which are proven to damage the immune system.

We recommend buying our Starter Kits which are specially made to provide you with formula supply for approx. two months. 
In general, babies eat when they're hungry and stop when they're full. Appetites vary among babies, and each baby's nutritional needs change from day to day and month to month. If you follow the feeding charts printed on each box and check in regularly with your baby's doctor, your baby will likely be on track. A lot depends on your baby’s appetite, but following numbers will give us a benchmark. On average, babies will need 2.5 ounces of formula per pound per day. So that average 8-pound newborn will need about 20 ounces of formula per day.

This is an extremely important question. If you do not follow the instructions correctly, you could possibly cause harm to your baby. But don't worry, the preparation of the formula is simple and quick. 

  1. Clean bottle, teat and ring in boiling water for 3 - 5 minutes before use. 
  2. Boil water freshly before each meal and allow to cool down to about 50°C / 122°F Fill approximately half of the boiled water into the cleaned bottle. 
  3. Use the measuring spoon provided and according to the instructions, add the correct number of scoops. Each spoon should be filled flat and not heaping. 
  4. Close the bottle tightly shake until all the powder has completely dissolved. Add remaining water and shake lightly again until the solution is evenly distributed and diluted. 
  5. Allow to cool down (hold the bottle under cold running water or in the refrigerator) to approximately 37°C / 98.6°F before feeding. To prevent burns, test the formula on your forearm to ensure that it is not too hot. Feed immediately. 

Extra Tips: 
  • Only use the scoop provided in the pack. 
  • Do not make feeds weaker or stronger than indicated by adding extra water/scoops, and do not add anything else to milk feeds. 
  • For hygiene, always freshly prepare feeds and do not prepare in advance. Use feeds immediately, and discard leftovers at the end of the feed. 
  • Bottles at room temperature should be used within 2 hours. Bottles in a cooler with ice or a cold pack should be used within 4 hours. Bottles in the fridge should be used within 24 hours. 
  • Do not heat feed in a microwave as hot spots may occur which could cause scalding. - All open formulas should be used within 21 days. All sealed formulas should be used by the expiration date on the box.

Yes. As a child grows and changes, so do his nutritional requirements. To ensure your baby is getting all of the nutrients he needs to grow and thrive, we recommend you use the stage of formula that corresponds with his age. European Formula manufacturers have spent many years perfecting formulations to ensure every stage of your baby’s dietary needs is met.

Thanks to modern vehicles and efficiently planned tours, our delivery companies have already reduced a large proportion of climate-damaging CO2 emissions.

If your baby has a bad reaction to a formula you've purchased from OBF24, we will do everything we can to help you find the right option for your little one. Our team of formula experts will work with you to determine the formula that best meets your baby's needs. We encourage our customers to get in touch with us if they need assistance. 
Unfortunately, Organic Baby Formula is excluded from the right to return. As we guarantee that our product is authentic and comes directly from the manufacturer, we cannot take returns, even if they are unopened. We do not restock the formula once it has left our warehouse. This provides security to our customers that the product they receive is authentic and not a counterfeit formula. 


There is a low chance that customs will charge extra fees. Anyway, customs policies vary widely from country to country. Orders shipped outside the EU may be subject to import taxes, customs duties, and fees. When customs clearance procedures are required, it can cause delays beyond our original delivery estimates. 
OBF24 takes no responsibility regarding the local rules and regulations concerning our sold products for our customers located outside of Germany as that is the recipient's responsibility.

Their organic farming processes assure that the land, man and animals are treated with respect. Farming is done in balance with nature for the benefit of everyone and everything involved.

Lebenswert goes further than meeting the EU's strict organic standards.

About 5600 farmers, gardeners, beekeepers and winegrowers produce according to the Bioland standards. Together they share common values that benefit people and the environment.

Working in balance with nature, supporting biodiversity and protecting our environment and climate will secure our livelihoods and a diverse cultural landscape. Organic farming means taking responsibility for the future.

Fairer prices in these partnerships provide the economic basis for the sustainable development of independent farms and make organic farming an attractive profession for young people. In addition, Bioland develops solutions for current and future challenges such as an adequate supply of healthy and GMO-free food, animal-friendly farming and climate protection.

My baby suffered a lot from gas

My baby suffered a lot from gas and discomfort with many other North American formulas that we tried. But as soon as we tried this formula he was way better. No painful looking gas at all!
