I have a 5 month and we are shortly going to France on holiday. I am bottle feeding and as driving was thinking of taking our Perfect Prep machine. I was wondering if anyone had done the same and if so what water did you use to put in it.

I would use bottled water with the lowest sodium content you can find there.

In Spain I used bottled water to make up formula. It was fine.

If using a perfect prep then it's safe to use tap water but if you feel better about it then yes pick the lowest sodium water you can find.

How sure are you that tap water would be safe abroad using perfect prep?. It doesn't even boil the water so I wouldn't trust it. I would use bottled water

I'm sure! We had to do a lot of research into the filter when our tap water at home wasn't safe to drink due to an over chlorination issue.
