    Default making formula with local water

    So, I have been using the Nursery brand water for 10 months now when making formula. Does anyone in Kitchener know if I can just use tap water at this point? I'm only askinv because I'm almost out and I keep forgetting to ask the Dr. What do you do?

    I'm not sure if Kitchener water is the same as Waterloo, but I used Waterloo water for my 7 year old's bottles when she was little (the other 2 were breastfed). My dr told me it was ok and she did fine with it.

    I used tap water... I boiled it when she was little... Its hard to remember specifics of when I stopped now that she's "older" (2.5) lol, but i wasn't boiling it by 10 months.

    I always used tap water. The doctor said not to use bottled water,as it isn't regulated like city water. I've never heard of nursey brand water before.

    My doctor told me tap water is fine and you don't need to boil past 6 months of age.
