  • Distilled water IS boiled water. Well, it's steam really but it's floride free. Bottled distilled water is fine to use.

  • It's fine to use it occasionally but I would stick to distilled more often than not. Even an infant would need to chug a lot of water to get flouride poisoning.

  • And you'd know if she had too much floruide, don't worry about anything happening now because you already used bottled water :)

  • What did your Pediatrician recommend? I only used premade liquid formula. That's an option for you too.

  • I used tap water too. Maybe that's why my kid has a third eye?

  • I used tap and my kids came out just fine. In fact my formula feed DD is rarely sick and is smart as hell. Things on line like t make parents paranoid.

  • I used tap water without boiling also. My kids are fine. Ask your ped, but I really don't think all that is necessary!
