Fluoride is added, I’d say in case you drink city water. Mixing infant formula with tap water must cover your baby’s needs. If you drink well water you will need to get it tested. So, anything less than 3 ppm fluoride will mean you can supplement with Nursery Water without worrying about overdosing. Known huzzah! Did you hear of something like that before? Tap water tastes a little funky to me. Lake Michigan is good for us as long as we have most of the freshest/cleanest water in the country. Chicagoland area. Another question isSo the question is this. Would you thence recommend using tap water? Just think for a moment. Every year we get a pamphlet from the city laying out how our tap water tested, and I use that as a what are we doing this year kind of guide. Melanie, I live in the southeastern Wisconsin area, and I would run our tap water through a filter like Brita or something.
By the way I would try the purified water, So in case the tap water tastes a little funky.
It will have any impurities removed, and in spite the fact that you might be a little low on the natural minerals, your baby’s formula, breastmilk, and eventually solids can make up that difference.
Hope this can it’s a good idea to use that for toothless infants. Then again, when fluoridation started it was always a risk/reward proposition. Ok, and now one of the most important parts. Less tooth decay for increased fluroosis. Notice, even alternative health organizations can have high research standards, and the ones he cites just don’t cut it, Although Mercola provides references, they tend to be misapplied or unreliable. For example, it’s steam distilled specifically states NO ADDED FLOURIDE on the container, That is what we use to mix our formula.
What about the nursery water without added flouride?
My only concern with the nursery water is the flouride. Than great, consequently read online that Surely it’s stripped of everything and it Undoubtedly it’s actually better to use Spring. Therefore, if I am mixing powdered formula with bottled water….which is what I use when I make powdered…is it preferable to be using Distilled Water, or Pure Mountain Spring Water for the minerals? Any ideas? My daughter picked me up 3 big bottles of Spring Water from Trader Joe’s that I haven’t used yet…but honestly, now I am confused about which would’ve been better. I would choose purified water first, if you’re avoiding tap water. I’m sure you heard about this. Worst case, you could alternate from side to side between purified and spring.
Hope this helps Pamela! That said, if you’d rather not toss those spring water bottles, Know what, I don’t think it will hurt her to use those. I’m happy to have your comment to let people know that option is now available, so this article was written with the information I had A ‘nonfluoride’ option did not appear when I did the research for this article ‘ohsomanymonths’ ago. This is the first time I’ve ever heard/seen a nonfluoride added version. Remember, there’s nothing wrong with purchasing a ‘non fluoride’ version of water, just ensure the price reflects the product, and not the marketing. That is interesting. Here is a scientific research study done from among the most prestigious Universities in the World. She keeps an awful rash on her bottom that the doctors say is a yeast rash. She was a preemie and I’m the nicu for the first three her life months.
We have switched formulas a few times but still the diarrhea continues.
It seems like she was having problems with her bowl since she came to the apartments. On top of that, are giving my five month old daughter nursery water since she was three months old. Although, has anybody ever seen this when using nursery water? Pls post back with comments and advice! We can’t define what’s causing her upset tummy. For instance, at her first appointment, the pediatrician said it’s perfectly fine to use our tap water. For the first week or so, we boiled water to make formula, after that, had to cool it. By the way I had no clue people used special water to make formula, before I had my first baby. Seriously. Walmart usually has both versions, about $ 88/gallon. With all that said… The water type is printed in upper right corner of Nursery Water label. Actually, nursery Water comes in both added fluoride andno fluoride added versions. You have to buy the nofluoride added version to mix with baby formula. Just read the label. Then, my teeth are quite rotten, and I wish that we will have had fluoridated water when I was a kid.
While splitting hairs to some, the proper usage would lend veracity to your article.
It seems like many parents outsmart themselves wheneverit gets to medical problems these days.
Our kids have gotten fluoridated nursery water from day one, and we have given them any vaccine we can get. They are both very, very healthy. Now pay attention please. Fluorine is the element Fluoride is the ion of Fluorine. Nothing for that matter. Like a dollar when she goes through a gallon in about a week well the tomorrow we went to the store we found this baby water brought out by gerber. Well among the things the doctors didn’t tell me about nursery water. Hi talking about this fluoride. Normally, well we bought the nursery water and it was kind of expensive. It ain’t fluoridated and it’s only $ 88 a gallon. Europe and most countries has now removed flouride from lots of their products altogether! Needless to say, where did you cite your facts that fluoride is in breastmilk? Essentially, this website needs to be updated. The composition of breastmilk does not contain fluoride in general! Zero flouride from our chemistry charts.
