  • I boil our tap water....the water in out area is delicious. I have more faith in tap water since it is government regulated whereas bottled water is not.

  • i used tap water... but i live in Montana where our tap water is still pretty great (minus a few mining towns). But when I was at my father's in Arizona right on the border i used nursery water that we bought.

  • I boil tap water and keep a pitcher on the counter, then warm it in the microwave for a few seconds. My mom has a water purifier so I just use the tap water there. And my MIL is on a well so we use bottled nursery water at her house. Neither of these three has ever caused him excess gas or tummy discomfort if thats what you might be worried about
