We are going on holiday to portugal in a few weeks and was just wondering what to do regarding drinking water for my 13 mo dd? She has cows milk so that will be ok but for other drinks what water should I use...bottled or boiled and cooled tap water?

I live in Portugal, I'd use bottled, most people do

Thanks costa is there any particular brand you'd recommend?

Bottles is safer but you just have to be careful about the sodium content - look for the one with the lowest sodium.

I don't know which I'd recommend but I think I remember hearing that monchique water was high in sodium so I'd give that a miss

Bottled water. At 13 months she will be fine with any as wont get high minerals over a weeks use compared to newborn. Otherwise the bottles usually have a small logo of a baby on the side/ back if suitable. Evan def is fine but probably a lot more expensive than most

Costa - I'm not sure, they have Evian in Spain so I assume the do. They usually have Evian as the ' foreign' brand in most countries worldwide I find

Portugal has dozens of brands of bottled water, they don't generally import it, if you do find it, it will be very expensive compared to local waters

I think the local bottled water will be fine wherever you are. At 13 months they can have whatever you have.
