Does anyone know of a baby friendly water filter cartridge?
I am starting my Dt's on formula and the water round here is terrible and most cartridges seem to have salt in them and arn't any good for babies.

Where do you live that you need to filter the water???? Honestly I feed DD (9 months bf) on water from the tap in between milk feeds.

Near London, the water is shitty and full of chemical and stuff, plus when I boil it up the amount of limescale is disgusting.
My Dt's are only 3.5 months so I am still steralising etc.

Okay, couple of things - limescale is not harmful, yes it tastes horrid and makes you kettle manky but honestly it's actually quite good for you!

In terms of chlorine - if you draw water and leave it to stand for ten minutes, it evaporates into chlorine gas and leaves the water. If you try smelling water when freshly drawn and then ten minutes later, you'll see the difference.

TBH it's not a good idea to use mineral or other filtered water for babies as their kidneys can't cope with the high mineral load (it's not just salt). They can however cope fine on tap water.
