    Default Bottled water for making formula

    whilst travelling (on airplanes & at airports) I have heard some stories of people having their bottles with sterilised water in them not being allowed through & only being able to have 1 bottle with water in it handy.
    Some people say that you can buy certain bottled water to use once through security to put in your bottles, certain ones that are low in fluoride, does anyone know any of the brands?

    they did test the water but that's it, they were actually pretty good about it
    that's a good idea too. if they let you through with 2 x 1ltr thermos then surely me having 8 bottles with 180ml in them each would be ok?

    I just want to cover all angles so I am not left without. That's why I am wondering what bottled water is ok....just incase.

    That is a cool gadget but not really what I am looking for, I need to know which bottled water is best for babies & has the least amount of fluoride in it. But thanks

    I think 'pump' water is good, it's not a mineral water just filtered tap water.
