Whether your baby is transitioning from a Stage 1 formula or trying formula for the first time, Lebenswert Stage 2 Organic Follow-On Infant Milk Formula is a wonderful alternative to breast milk that’s perfect for older babies, including those who have begun eating solid food.
Lebenswert formulas are produced by Holle, one of the most trusted infant formula brands in Europe. Lebenswert Stage 2 is 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.
In addition to its base of organic skim milk, Lebenswert Stage 2 formula contains organic maltodextrin, a complex carbohydrate that thickens the formula and balances out the sweetness of the milk. Maltodextrin is easy to digest and releases energy more slowly than simple carbohydrates. To round out this delicious, nutritionally-complete formula, Lebenswert Stage 2 formula also contains organic whey powder, a blend of organic vegetable oils, and all of the vitamins and minerals your baby needs to continue growing and thriving.
It should come as no surprise that there are no chemical additives in Lebenswert 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.
We guarantee that you’ll receive a fresh, beautifully-packaged shipment of Lebenswert Stage 2 infant formula with at least six months to go before the expiration date. Each box of Lebenswert Stage 2 contains 500 grams (17.6 oz) of formula powder, which should make approximately 110 fl oz of prepared formula.
If this formula isn't right for your baby, simply let us know and we’ll send you a box of another formula to try, for free.
Our top priority is to help you find the best formula for your little one.

About the Manufacturer
Introduced by Holle in 2009, the Lebenswert brand represents Holle’s 85+ years of expertise at the highest echelon of global organic quality.
To that end, all Lebenswert formulas have achieved Bioland certification, one of the most strongest organic certifications in the world, becoming the only major formula on the market to do so. This means that Lebenswert formulas come from 100% organic farms that use natural compost, have high standards for animal welfare, and more.
Lebenswert formulas are some of the cleanest in the world, and since they’re typically based on few, simple, high-quality ingredients, are known for being very easily digestible while still containing all the nutrients that your little one needs to grow and thrive.
At Huggable, we love Lebenswert formulas because babies love them. They’re clean, healthy, easily digestible, and based on world-class sustainable farming practices.
