I too use the nursery water. It has everything they need for their teeth, and it's only a dollar per gallon. My ped. said to, not under any circumstances, use either tap or well water. Well water can contain any unknown levels of minerals.
Yes, your city water is treated. Yes, it is safe for older children and adults(most places). However, it contains chemicals, and not all of them will be filtered out. Our city water is treated with chlorine, and I won't even drink it myself.

Adults aren't advised to drink the tap water in Cyprus so I definately wouldn't offer it to my baby. I would but the bottled water but i would boil it aswell just to make sure! Also sterilise whatever you are giving it him, you can buy really good small travel sterilisers! Enjoy your hols!

I used water called Nursery water. I bought it at a whole bunch of stores, a gallon for less than 2 dollars... I had asked my pedi first and she said there was nothing wrong with that. Even more so she wanted to make sure we didn't use anything out of our city's water so I bought that when I was traveling. I agree with bottling your own city's water too, but if you are traveling by plane they probably won't let you bring it with you. If there are the same brands there of water as where you live then you can get those too, because you know the brand and I had also used some of those as well. Hope you find the answer you're looking for!

perhaps you can just boil the water of wherever you are going to, that should kill anything dangerous in it.

um, the solution i can come up with right now is to pack a lot of your city's bottled water, because the bottled water abroad is going to be their local water. That's my guess at least!

No im not worried about tap water at all he drinks it fine.. Im talking about abroad. He cant have spring water as its got high sodium content.

bottled water is tap water! if the bottle doesn't list where the water came from then its tap water. In order for it to be spring water it has to list the spring or well where it came from originally. By a filter if you're worried about other chemicals in the tap water.

i was under the impression that bottled water wasnt good for babies because of the extra stuff added in it like sodium...could be wrong tho

its ok sometime. but bottled water doesnt have the things in to to keep teeth healthy, so everyonce in awhile they need to drink regular water.

Plastic bottles are a waste.... I want to keep the earth clean so my son can live in it and enjoy it... Unless you have to drink bottled water, DON"T... we may all one day have to!

We used to use bottled water, but I got tired of payin $3 a week for something we have for free at home and tired of bottles everywhere so we got a Brita filter for the tap. There's nothing wrong with tap water if you live in the city, it's treated and perfectly drinkable. Where I lived as a teen, we had well water so we had to drink bottled water. But in the city where I grew up, the water was fine to drink. My husband, however, has a slight aversion to tap water. I don't know what's up with that because we grew up in the same city!
