What type of water should you use for your baby’s bottle?
If you usually prepare a bottle for your baby with tap water, you should know that the World Health Organization (WHO) doesn’t recommend giving this to children in their first years of life. The reason is that the process in local water treatment plants, doesn’t reduce the presence of parasites such as Giardia lamblia and the Cryptosporidium.
Similarly, boiling tap water increases the concentration of some ions that can be harmful to the infant. Among them are nitrates, which increase the risk of a disease called methemoglobinemia.
In regards to bottled water, experts indicate that the label should be checked to ensure that it contains less than 200 mg per liter of sodium and no more than 250 mg per liter of sulfate, since higher amounts can damage the infant's kidney due to excess of solutes.
