A little ago, I realised my tap water was dirty. The worst thing was I just give my one year old son a drink in his dark blue sippy cup so wouldn't of realised it was dirty behind the blue. I don't he has drank huge amounts of it. Should I be worried?

Probably not, I used to work for a water company, chances are it's just rust

Don't worry too much smile

I'm sure you'll be extra careful next time smile

In what way was it dirty? UK mains water should be safe to drink unless the water company have notified you otherwise. Sometimes my water looks cloudy but its a pressure problem and the grey, cloudy look is just tiny bubbles which clear when it settles.

I'd just keep a close eye on him, maybe keep a sample of the water and call 111 if he has any symptoms.

Sorry, discoloured is probably a better word. But it was pretty brown. He seems ok though! smile
