Re: What kind of water do you use?

we use purified drinking water. Nothing fancy. Our tap water makes me nervous, we've made the (national) news for bad water quality.
Our ped told us anything bottled or out of the Brita was fine.
Both my kids are normal, well, if you call that normal

We use nursery water or bottle spring water. I did the same with DD1 also.

Re: What kind of water do you use?

I've heard that the nursery water starts to leave little white floride spots on there teeth when they start to come in so I stayed away from that. With my first 2 I always used brita water if we went out of town I would fill up jugs of water to take with us. It seemed like they didn't react well if I used a different kind of water while we were on the go so I always had to bring my own water.

However while I was pregnant this time around i'm not sure if it was on babycenter or what but it actually said that using a brita filter for formula was actually bad. It actually filters too much stuff out of the water. We have home delivery of big water jugs for our water dispenser thing and that water is reverse osmosis and I absolutely love that water. I can't drink anything else. And that is what we use for the formula. Well it was, now I buy ready to feed just because we were getting lazy.

Re: What kind of water do you use?

Our pedi told us to use regular tap water also since it contained flouride. I'm not sure if most bottled waters contain flouride or not, but tap water is definitely cheaper and easy to come by!

I always used tap water. Our water is safe and the flouride is a necessity.

Re: What kind of water do you use?

I have a water cooler because my tap water is not drinkable - contaminated well. A brita alone will not make it drinkable - a good industrial professionally installed expensive one might, but we don't have that kind of money. I did at one time boil the water for her bottles, but that was really early on, and not for very long.
