Bottled water, boiled water or tap water?


Ethan is 7mo and drinking a little water with his meals. There have been quite a few posts about not boiling water but I'm still unsure. Also, I've no idea if bottled water is safe. So I thought a poll was in order!

Thanks !

I'm not sure about this either! I've just been giving Isaac cooled boiled water because it seems like the safest option.

Me too, but tap water or bottled would be much easier!

My HV told me tap water would be fine from 6 months.

I have been giving my lo cooled boiled water however, at times once I found out you can give tap water after 6 mths I have the odd time given her that.

I don't think you can give bottle water as it has high levels of sodium in it.

I was thinking this and the level of minerals, but I'm sure I've read that some moms give it, and especially when going abroad, so I was wondering if I'd got my info wrong. Thanks for commenting

I fed Keira cooled boiled water with her milk, and as a refreshing drink.
When she turned 10 and a half months old I boil the water and sterilise her milk bottles for at night and first thing in the morning, but with her juice in her beakers I use tap water xx

I use bottled since birth. We don't have fresh tap water so I use bottled for preparing feeds & we use the large cooler water for cooking.

As we live in Phuket the tap water is not good to drink.
I bought this filtration system from Germany but still boil it and cool it down before giving it to her.
We always have about 5 litre plus available at all times as we have a seperate drinks fridge that has water, soft drink and the more important stuff called beer.
