    Also it's important to fill the kettle with cold water from the tap because if you use hot water it picks up copper from the pipes. Also I run the tap for a couple of seconds to get any water out that may have been sitting in the pipes

    No offence but if you're worried about extra chemicals then you might want to steer clear of formula in general...I'd imagine fluoride is the least of it. . And I say this as someone who formula fed

    Unfortunately some people can't steer clear of formula and it's great people are educating themselves on toxins/fluoride in our water

    Default How do you preare your water for making up formula?

    I wash DS' bottles, and fill them with water that has been boiled (and cooled) in the kettle. They sit on the bench until I need to use them, usually within 12 hours. I also measure the formula into dispensers, so that it's ready if I need to go out, or if DP needs to make up a feed. DS drinks room temp bottles too

    I did read about boiling water making the minerals more concentrated, or something along those lines. How about boiling filtered/bottled water and storing in a large sterilized closed jug? We don't drink tap water at all, we have a cooler here and get the bottles delivered. I can definitely taste the difference, tap water is yuk..

    I'll also add that I keep 2 x 500ml bottles of cooled boiled water on stand by just in case. I rotate the water so if that is more than a few days old and I need a bottle urgently and none are made up I am not waiting for boiling water to cool. Otherwise that water goes to the dogs or fish.
