Should I boil the bottled water to feed my 3m baby with Aptamil formula?

Should I boil the bottled water to feed my 3m baby with Aptamil formula?

On The Bottle Again?: If taken from the Ganges River I'd advise that you do. But most commercially bottled water is OK. My grandfather always boiled the tap water to get rid of the chlorine in it but as far as I know most bottled water doesn't have that, or fluoride in it. No harm in boiling it though, as long as it's body temperature or less when given to the baby. ...Read more

How do breast milk and formula change a baby's poo?

How do breast milk and formula change a baby's poo?

Br.Milk: looser poop: Breastmilk-fed babies usually have looser, more watery, poops when compared to formula-fed babies. Breastmilk has ingredients that encourage the intestines to move the poop along, so the poop leaves the baby sooner (a faster transit time means the poop doesn't stay in the baby long, so the poop doesn't get drier nor firmer). Formula-fed babies have firmer poops and more easily get constipated. ...Read more
