Is It Better to Use Tap Water or Bottled Water For Baby Formula?

Which Water Do You Use For Formula?

New moms have it hard — there's so much to think about, and not enough hours in the day! Even after deciding whether breastfeeding or formula feeding is right for you, some moms have another choice to make: which type of water to use to mix powdered formula?

Of course, mama wants to make the best decision, but the answer isn't all that simple. There are unknown safety concerns (like the radiation fallout the poor moms are dealing with in Japan), the possibility of too much fluoride, and whether or not you need to filter or boil it. Bottled water, on the other hand, may not have enough fluoride for your baby, or may be just too expensive. And then there's the pricier option: buying water especially made for baby!

Whether you run the tap or buy, which type of water did you and your doctor decide was best for your baby?

Until my daughter was a year old, I used tap water that had been filtered via the Brita, then boiled and cooled. After that, just filtered. I now use the toddler formula to make milk for her sometimes, and just use regular tap water.

I would use filtered tap water. Where's the option for that? Definitely better than regular tap water without hurting the environment!
