I'm not sure whether or not i want to use a bottled/ nursery water or just do the tap. Our water is safe but sometimes i do notice that occasionally it has a slfur like smell to it, which makes me nervous about using it.

I use Ready to Feed so I don't use water sometimes I will use the powder when I do I use nursery water. If you water is safe then you should be fine using it.

I am using nursery water, I heard that you not use just regular bottled water all the time ( think maybe it does not have the flouride). I plan on using this using this until she is about 6mo. My doctor thought it was a good idea to use right now, he said tap is okay and I could use if I want. But that it was tested to have too much of minerals at times. Plus I had tried that on her a couple times a she got really fussy/gassy. If you have well water you are not suppose to use from the tap, as there are bacteria in there. I would talk to you ped before deciding, they should be able to tell what would be best for you.

Our water is fine without any funky taste or smells, so we mix formula with warm tap water.

I use nursery water but I have no problem using tap, I just bought many jugs of nursery water before she was born.

Our tap water is disgusting, so much so that I don't even want my dogs to drink it... We use nursery water. The only time she might get something different is if we run out. Then she just gets room temperature bottled water.

I use nursery water. We are on our own private well and we have sulfur and some fine, fine sand in our water so I'm scared to give it to Emily.
