    Preparing formula for baby

    What kind of water do you use to prepare milk for your baby. I am starting to introduce a bottle to my 7 month old and am hearing conflicting info about which water is best: mineral, distilled, tap water? Any advice out there?

    Our tap has a filter and we boil the water for our baby over the stove (for ourselves we just boil in a kettle but playing a little safer with baby). Our building is fairly new so pipes should be ok.

    Our pediatrician said preferably not mineral water for day to day use. We use bottled distilled. There are conflicting opinions whether bottled needs to also be boiled, but our pediatrican said it is fine to not boil bottled distilled water and we have been doing that with no problems.
