  • shouldn't give them baby water before a year. I did it for the fist few months, before my son's doctor told me that the flouride in it can be bad for them. She told me that tap water is totally fine.

  • the difference is $$ chaching $$

    We drink reverse osmosis filtered tap water at a refilling station 10 cents a gallon. Our unfiltered home tap water is drinkable, its just that I think it tastes like wet fur.

  • We always just used bottled water or filtered water.

  • I never gave my son baby water. I just use our well water.

  • I used boiled tap until my son was around 9 months. Then plain tap.

  • Never used it ever with my 5 kids. We just use water from our tap. We have good drinking water here. When we're out we use bottled drinking water.

  • ive never used the baby water...its not that much different than distilled water....its just more expensive...if your worried about your water boil it and store an empy water jug full of it in the fridge...

  • My son is 6 and I am still buying it! lol Doc said at least until he is 7 because the well water has nothing in it... city water already has that stuff added so if you are in town you don't need to worry about it, just if you have a well!
