Re: Is tap water okay?

For what it's worth, we had two preterm babies ( 25 weeks and 31 weeks this matters due to being more susceptible to getting sick ) and the 25 weeker took so long to be old enough to nurse I never gotta really bf so she went straight to bottle once home. She had a brita filter pitcher with the water for her formula in it, and that's as much as we did. That is also what the NICU told us to do. Of course the NICU before recommending what water to use, looked up our water reports for us =) They said straight tap wouldn't harm her a bit, but they always prefer some filtration over none. Just an added safety is all. Not a thing more in our case.
OMG!! Happily adding to our beautiful family

Not to mention my husband who likes to pretend he's one of the kids
