The only times I used boiled water was when i felt unsure of the water quality. Boiling water is one way to ensure it's clear of any contaminants. Otherwise, I don't see any real need to use boiling water for babies, as it can burn their mouth and body if used in bath time.


There really is no reason to use boiled water unless your water supply is compromised in some way. You can use bottled water if you prefer but tap water is tested and, unless you have been told differently, is safe to consume. I would not worry about boiling water unless it has been suggested by your place of living.
