sound like you need to have your water tested! I grew up on well water and I bottled it when I go to vistied my parents to mix my sons formula with, but they test there water every 6mo. Also my childs Dr. approved that we use well water, I feel that is is better for him then all of the chlorine in water where we live!

I have also heard not to give your child well water. I'd definitely go with bottled water.

we ALWAYS use the brita filter before drinking our water and i just use that in my babies bottle...ive heard its good to give a little tap water anyway because it gives them some flouride (but too much is not good).

I have always heard not to give well water. Im not sure why not, but we are big water drinkers anyway so we just buy the baby bottled water water with Fluoride to be safe.
