I'm so clueless about making up bottles but I plan to formula feed this time. I'd like to do room temperature so I don't have to worry about heating in the middle of the night or when we're out and about etc. Everyone is telling me tap water that is filtered is fine to use, however I need to decide how I'm going to filter it... the faucet mount systems all have pretty poor reviews so I was thinking of the pitcher style, but since they are all hard clear plastic are they BPA free? No point in my using glass bottles if I'm storing the water in a BPA laden container ya know?

Does anyone know if the Pur or Brita filter pitchers are BPA free?

Thanks!

Honestly, we just used straight tap water and didn't filter it at all. We're on city water and just didn't worry about it I guess.

But I'm not sure about the Brita and Pur filter jugs. I'd assume that they are not BPA free though.

I used bottled water with fluroide added with my first son. I never used tap water unless I boiled it first and then stored it in BPA free storage. I was overcautious with everything I did with him.

We bought a reverse osmosis filtering system. It was the best thing we ever did for our water. It tastes amazing.

This is my first - but I would check with your local area water company. My siste ris a dentist and she sees lots of kids with teeth problems because parents used bottled water or super filtration systems and it takes all the flouride out of the water. You might want to check what the filters take out of the water. Everyone I know just used tap water...

Too much flouride is worse for your teeth than not enough. Formula has enough flouride in it without having to add more.

Like Lillian said from my understanding when they are really little (ie year and under) its excess flouride that can cause issues not lack of, once they are older then I agree tap water with flouride is a good thing but I'm not sure that first year. I'm going to check with our city, I know they do add it but not sure to what amount. The water filtration systems don't remove flouride, at least none that I've read about. Supposedly Brita claim to be BPA free from my reading today, still not sure on the Pur. I'm surprised neither mention it on their sites given how concerned parents are with bpa these days.

I just bought the bottled Nursery water with my DD, but I will probably just use straight tap water this time since we're on city water and I know most women around here use it.
