  • I don't use formula. But if I did I'd get a water pitcher and filter the water.

  • My doctor says faucet water is better and that is water I use for our twins.

  • I breast fed my last, but my first son I used the faucet water. The doctor said he needed the fluoride in the water.

  • I think it would depend on the quality of the water that comes out of your spigot if you want to use it or not. We've lived in some places that had pretty horrible water, so we used bottled or filtered water exclusively, including for mixing our DS's special formula.
