Someone please help..x

    Morning :)

    I use bottled water, because we live in area with very very hard chalky water - the NHS website states the following with regards to using bottled water:

    If you have to use bottled water to make up a feed, check the label to make sure that the water contains:
    • less than 200 milligrams (mg) a litre of sodium (also written as Na)
    • no more than 250mg a litre of sulphate (also written as SO or SO4)
    Hope that helps xx

    Have you thought about getting a water filter- could be cheaper than keep buying bottled water?

    We live in a horrible water area.

    We got a brita(?) water filter jug from Tesco, fill that up every night, there's enough in that to boil bottle water, fill the bunnys bottle, and make OH a cuppa in the morning.

    Never had a problem.

    You have to replace the filter cartridge when runs out (about once a month) but they're not overly expensive, and will be much cheaper than constantly buying bottled water. Xx

    You can also get a brita filter kettle, my sister has one and she says it makes life easier living in a minging water area! She has a filter in the fridge for cold water too.
