preparing formula for babies

So i keep reading about how to prepare formula for babies.
They say not to use the nursery water in the store you can buy because they are finding that the fluiride in it isnt good for them . Also using your tap water isnt a good idea either and if you are using tap water you should be boiling it first.
What do you guys use to make your babies bottles?

  • My kids were all formula fed using tap water. They're healthy. Unless you live in a developing country where the water isn't purified, you don't need to boil it.
