As long as the tap water in your area is safe to drink it is fine for baby. That is all my kids have ever had . That's all we use for drinking and cooking . If they didn't drink it I would have to get them fluoride tabs from the dentist for their teeth .


I, personally, wouldn't give a baby under a year or two tap water. But, I think at that age, if you drink it, they can drink it. David and I don't drink tap water, we have a water filter in our fridge. We will have our kids drink that filtered water. If we do use the tap, then we'll boil the water and then stick it in the fridge. For Lucas we go to a Water and Ice store just up the road for pure water.
