  • we transitioned off of it when we transitioned off of formula.. for the moms who say they dont see a need for it when you live in the city with all kinds of crud in the water it is better

  • Nursery water is a waste of money. The only difference is that it has added flouride. Most babies get enough flouride already, especially from other types of water. You can get distilled, drinking or spring water for less than a dollar. Save yourself some money.
    I don't drink tap water unless I have to, we just have a filter pitcher and a filter in our fridge ice/water maker.

  • I have never given my children nursery water. We buy water that is RO purified. I try to eliminate the presence of flouride altogether, not ADD it. You're not supposed to ingest flouride. It's a poison.
