Hi Guys
I am currently in Malta on holiday & about to run out of Aptamil cartons. Does anyone know which local bottled water I should buy to make up formula?
We purchased Paradiso water today, which has a picture of a baby on the side and I think the sodium content is low it says 3,5 per 1L.
Anyone any experience?
Thanks

i would just use tap water. as long as it's boiled it will be fine.

mineral waters are not really suitable

A few locals told me they don't use the water and to use bottled?!

When in Malta staying with dh family, I used bottled water, that is what his family drink, they dont drink tap water.

I have always used bottled water with the baby picture on the side to make up formula when I've been on holiday with dds. I know people that use Evian as well.

I'd use bottled water with the lowest sodium content and boil it before making up the formula.

But boiling it will increase the sodium content. Remember it's the formula that's not sterile, not the bottled water. Just boil enough so you can dissolve the powder.
