  • its just like bottled water.except its got fluride in it.its a gallon jug...you find it in the baby isle.I just wanted to make sure I didnt have to use it to mix it with formula.I want to give it to him straight.He's not on formula and I dont dilute his juice or anything.

  • It should be fine. You're talking about nursery water, right. It's perfectly safe it doesn't have too much fluoride in it in fact all tap water has a certain amount in it. It's will be good for his teeth. I would stop using it when he starts brushing his teeth with fluoride toothpaste because then it would be overkill and could has the reverse affect on his teeth. You good to go though! :o)

  • our city water doesnt have fluoride in it.. so when our son was 6 months old, our doctor perscribed him fluoride with vitamins in it, and he gets a drop every morning.. i think you should be ok to start giving small amounts to your baby
