  • Generations have gotten by with not using nursery water. Use a water purifier. It will be fine.

  • If you have a well just boil your tap water. If you have city water and you are sure you don't have unsafe pipes then you can just use tap. We used boiled water from the Britta filter. The concerns are lead (old pipes - needs to be filtered), or bacteria (from a well - needs to be boiled).

  • nope! All it has in it that regular water does not have is, FLOURIDE, which if taken too much can be really bad for your health. Not sure why they even make that water. Funny though, if your talking about the nursery water with the pink label on it, i actually know that baby in the front. His mom got $5,000 for putting her kid on that nursery water label.....heck my baby was SO much cuter!

    Nursery water is a waste of money, don't even worry about it. He does not need flouride, its harmful to our health. Google it, it's fact.

  • How can a baby develop a healthy immune system if all they are exposed to is purified? If you can drink the water, your baby can drink the water.
