    Mona,

    I've just emailed the folks over at Danone Group, who happen to own the Evian brand and have asked them. I hope they respond favorably. :)

    Sorry, I meant to post the reply I received from the distributor but forgot.

    Evian does not specifically process their spring water to make it suitable for babies, as it would go against their concept of water "bottled at the source".

    I have heard one reason why mineral water is not good for babies is that it contains high sodium content. However, they did tell me that Evian is suitable for babies as the sodium content is low, but maybe this is a good question to ask a paediatrician or someone more knowledgeable on this topic.

    Can anyone confirm this?

    Wow, my first post or how it is called... I'm a new member since today and saw this thread about Evian water for babies. I have been wondering as well, if this is good for babie, but now I found Volvic and they even mention on the bottle, that it is suitable for babies due to it's low mineral content.
    maybe this helps?
    Regards
    Marta
