When did you stop boiling water for feeding, for your baby?

Just wondering when I can stop boiling my son's bottle water, he's 8 months! It's filtered water that we buy bottled for our water cooler, not tap water.

  • I never boiled the water. I just bought distilled water from the grocery store and kept it on the counter to keep it room temperature. I don't know why you would even boil water that is already filtered... Am I missing something?

  • We never boiled it. We had a filter. If it's filtered already, you shouldn't need to boil it.,
