The Difference Between Lebenswert Stage 1 and Stage 2



When it comes to organic goodness, you get it in every bottle of Lebenswert organic baby formula. If your baby is six months old, what is the difference that makes you want to change stages?

Your baby is growing, and what you feed them has a lot to do with it. Lebenswert baby formula can make a difference with its organic goodness that sticks to the necessities for your baby's diet. Not only has it been a part of the Holle Baby Food company since 2009, but it is also certified by the largest organic food association in Germany. Bioland has high standards when it comes to their organic products, and Lebenswert meets or exceeds those expectations. These standards include biodynamic farming methods that balance the land, the animals, and the farming community where it all takes place.

Once you made the decision to feed your baby Lebenswert, you knew that Stage 1 would meet all of your baby's nutritional needs from birth to one year old. Even if you started Lebenswert after weaning your baby off the breast, you were confident in the naturally sweet, delicious milk from grass-fed cows used in the formula. Lebenswert is iron-fortified and does not contain allergens such as wheat, soy, peanut, or gluten. There are no artificial sweeteners, preservatives, by-products, GMOs, hormones, or any other ingredient that your baby does not need.

Around six months old, your baby has developed more into the little person that you love. They are ready for solid foods because their digestive system is more developed. They may be hungrier or just need a little something more to be satisfied. Maybe it is time to consider Stage 2. So what is the difference?


Lebenswert Stage 1 vs Stage 2


Lebenswert Stage 1

  • from birth to the first year
  • free of starch or maltodextrin
  • contains lactose, the same carbohydrate found in breast milk


Lebenswert Stage 2

  • from six months to the first year
  • contains maltodextrin


Why Use Maltodextrin?

Maltodextrin has been used in organic baby formula as a natural thickener that balances the sweetness of the formula. It is typically flavorless that comes from either corn, potatoes, rice, or wheat. For older babies, a thicker formula can leave them satisfied for longer. It also keeps the formula at the right level of sweetness without using additional sugars or sweeteners.
