Son is 2y old,still boiling the drinking water for him(although bottled water),in egypt afraid of water even bottled,is okay? Or water loses sodium?

Boiled is safer: Water that has been boiled is safer, because germs and parasites have been cooked. People get their sodium from salt in food. In modern societies, we already eat too much sodium, and therefore need no additional sodium from our water. Other ways to make water safe include using special water filters and adding a specific tiny amount of bleach to partially treated water. ...Read more

What kind of water is best for preparing baby formula? Reverse osmosis from the store? Tap water? Boiled tap water? Nursery water?

Water for formula: Excellent question. You want safe water supply that's appropriately fluoridated so your baby doesn't end up with rotten teeth. MOST community water sources are safe, are closely regulated for what can and can't be in water. We're all scared after Flint MI, but most city water sources are perfect. DON'T boil water. It concentrates trace metals present in the water. Nursery water OK but expensive ...Read more
