Hi Friends! Hope everyone is staying healthy and happy during these turbulent times. Many of you are stressed at the thought of buying American formula if/when your European formula of choice is unavailable. My advice is to be flexible. It is okay to switch brands (HiPP to Lebenswert) or stage down (use stage 1 instead of stage 3) for the first year of life. Please feel free to reach out with questions or concerns. Stay sane and healthy!
Friends of LWO,
I wanted to take a minute to touch base with you during this unprecedented time in our country. I want to assure you that I am doing everything in my power to ensure your baby formula needs are met over the next few weeks and beyond. I am increasing my ordering volume, however so is the rest of the world, so it may take a a week or so to replenish some of our most popular products. I did enable a pre-order function on the website, and I do recommend taking advantage of it if you are concerned about securing formula for your LO.
As noted on the homepage, formulas that are currently in stock/available will ship same/next business day and take 2-3 business days to deliver. Pre-order products will take closer to 5-7 days to arrive to a customer.
My inventory is kept inside my home office and only comes into contact with myself and my mail carrier. My family and I are practicing social distancing to prevent the spread of this disease, and my husband is also working from home.
In one study, which you can find here
, it is noted that the virus can survive up to 24 hours on cardboard, however it is still unclear if transmission can occur through contact with contaminated cardboard. The formula I order takes about 3-5 business days to arrive from the UK and Germany, and once shipped another 2-3 business days to arrive to the consumer.
We must all be diligent and thoughtful in our attempt to "flatten the curve" and stay ahead of the Coronavirus.
Stay healthy, and please don't hesitate to reach out with any questions you may have.
