Bottles & storage

How hot does the water have to be in order to dissolve the milk powder? 

Do not mix the powder with boiling water, so as not to damage the vitamins and natural lactic acid cultures. Use boiled water that has cooled to 40 – 50°C.

HiPP Milk Formulae dissolve easiest at this temperature. In order to reach the desired 40 – 50°C, place a measuring jug containing freshly boiled water in cold water for a few minutes.

How can I determine the correct drinking temperature?

Drinking temperature can be tested on the back of your hand: put a few drops of milk formula on the back of your hand. The temperature of the milk should feel pleasantly warm.

Can I prepare milk formula in the microwave?

If the formula is prepared according to the instructions on the packet, it is not necessary to warm it in the microwave, as it already is at the perfect drinking temperature.

Can I keep already prepared milk formulae warm?

Ready prepared milk formulae should be fed straight away for hygienic reasons. If your baby cannot finish the bottle straight away, please prepare a fresh one later.


The contents of an opened milk formula pack should be used within 3 weeks. The foil pouch guarantees the best possible freshness and aroma protection. Milk formulae should generally be kept cool (at room temperature), dry and not next to strong smelling substances or foods. The HiPP Milk Box is available for ideal storage.
