boiled or tap water?
 
Do you use (cooled) boiled water/bottle water, or tap water for your babies bottles?
If you use tap water, when did you stop using the boiled/bottled water?

I usually use tap water, but since the earthquake we are having to boil all our drinking water, so right now she gets boiled or bottled drinking water
I stopped using boiled water when she was 3mo. We USUALLY have really clean drinking water...

We have really good drinking water here. I just give him warm tap water to make his bottles. Easier than having to heat it after.

I've used nursery water but last week we switched over to tap water. I'm tired of buying nursery water...DS is almost 9 months so I figure he'll be fine. We have good water.

I buy nursery water because I don't trust the water in Cali!

I usually buy Gerber water (since it says no added flouride) but if I run out I just use the tap and pour it from a Brita pitcher.

I thought it was better to use the one with added fluoride? Hmm...I probably should have researched that!

I've seen mixed things on it, I think. I'm sure it can't be too bad but I did read something about it not being good and with him only having one kidney and all I figured it probably couldn't hurt to go without flouride just in case.

Just like Michele said...some think it's good some don't... My Pedi told me to use it with DD so I did and when I put DS on formula I started using it again. We do not have fluoride in our water so DS also gets RX fluoride drops and DD takes a pill every day.

We have well-water so I use purified water...

I stopped using boiled water at 3 months, and I now use tap water out of a Brita jug.

With my girls, we always used boiled water, it just seems to many things are added to water now a days to be certain that its okay for children to drink. Until about 12 months it was boiled water, now that they are 3& 4 its still bottled water.

We have used warm tap water since the beginning as well.

I use bottled water and plan to stick with it u never know whats in your tap water

I use bottled water, even I don't drink from the tap. Although in a pinch, I would use tap water since our water is really clean. But I just feel better knowing its purified water. Our water cooler system boils the water as well, so its double clean....i push the button on the system to boil the filtered water....that way I can let it cool to room temp and then i mix her bottles and warm up as needed throughout the day. Im still breastfeeding/pumping as well. Our feeding really is a mixed bag....she loves it!! My baby is 2 months old. Oh and we only prefer the Nestle/Gerber Good Start formula.
