    My tin says to boil the water then cool it for 30 mins before adding formula.
    @kezanazz, I've been boiling the water in the morning then using that throughout the day and giving room temp bottles. Do you think that's safe to not have bugs?

    Me too. You're also supposed to do give cooled boiled water if you're offering a drink.

    Is this tap water or tank?
    Once the bugs are dead they are dead.
    What you are doing should be fine

    Also just on the bottled water some of them can be suprisingly high in salt.

    I used "Purea" casked water. Unlike 'mineral' waters it didn't have more sodium etc, just water. I didn't boil it and being in a cask bladder it was never exposed to germs in the air. I was on tank water, but didn't trust it (couldn't afford to get the tank checked, treated, drained, refilled etc) even with 5 minutes boiling.

    Taps easy then! The water is alresdy chlorinated to make sure it's safe. The boiling is just to remove any chlorine and is *really* up to you

    What bacteria are resistant to the temp reached in a quick kettle boil? I thought once the water had boiled it would kill any 'bugs' regardless of how long it boils for - the water can't actually get hotter as such?
