    Can I use bottled water with formula?

    Hi there,

    We've just moved and can't put a water purifier on the kitchen tap in our new place so I've been using boiled water to make my sons bottles. In the last couple of days he's been spitting up (which isn't normal for him) and I'm wondering if it's the water?

    Can I use bottled water instead? He's nearly 1 year old.

    Thanks!

    Nuckle,

    Have a read through the similar threads below. We used boiled tap water for my son, but if you live in an older building with rusty pipes bottled water might be better. You can also try WildAlp Spring Water .

    Some article I have read suggested that you should not give mineral water to baby as their kidney or something is not fully functional.
