    I only give water to Isabella that has been boiled, just really carried on from when she was a young baby. I do add a little juice.

    My DH and I only drink bottled water so think it is unfair to give her tap water. Can she have bottled water?

    Thanks.

    I remember reading somewhere that bottled water had a high level of something (sorry cant remember what it is) and it should not be given to babies. So now she is a toddler is that ok??? As she will have it every day?

    I can't remember now whether it was 6months or 12months when you can give them straight tap water. I know we have been giving Ellie tap water for a long while now. We tend to drink filtered water, but I heard somewhere we shouldn't give this to Ellie but I don't know when she can have that? She has had it occasionally as she sometimes demands some of my drink.
