Most likely: Perrier contains 0.18ppm f. Cities that add Fluoride to their water "idealize" to 1ppm--nearly 5 times the dosage in perrier--not enough to harm, not enough to provide tooth protection for your baby's teeth. The sparkling water contains trace amounts of many minerals. Unless you are getting all your hydration from the bottle ($$$ and unnecessary), there should be no ill effects.

Maybe: Fluoride would not be a problem but high nitrate levels during pregnancy have been associated with several health risks.

Avoid the nitrates: The amount of Fluoride is small and not a problem, but i would avoid anything with high amount of nitrates while pregnant.

No. : Both are not good for you and your baby's health.

Yes...: I am not comfortable with all the nitrates. The Fluoride is not a problem. I would go with another source of water that is more pure.

Avoid nitrates: Nitrates are not good for you while pregnant. The cleanest and purest water tends to be your normal tap water. Bottled water is usually the city's tap water where it is bottled, and the chemicals in the plastic are not good for you.
