Water for formula


What type of water do you use for formula? I have just been using filtered tap water. Am I a terrible mom for doing that??

    I don’t think you’re a terrible mother. We do buy the baby water from Walmart since it’s usually only a $1 however I’ve used the filter water from the fridge if we’ve run out.. I like to think that it would be fine giving only filtered water. My parents gave me tap water and I’m sure it’s whole lot worse then than it is nowadays and I turned out perfectly fine!

    I use regular cold tap water. I only ever bought water when the city was doing work on the water main

    I use regular tap water. I got my tap water tested for lead and it came back negative so I've been fine with it.

    Not at all when I use to run out of baby water I would boil water on the stove

    I don’t know what the water in your area is like, but that’s what we do. Our pediatrician was fine with filtered water (we used the water dispenser from the fridge) and told us not to bother with store-bought baby water.
