This is from being clueless first-timer, rather than pfb (I think)! Do I need to offer him cool boiled water or is regular tap/filtered water okay?

regular tap water is fine, and i guess filtered water ie from a brita filter type thing? is also fine?

no need to boil it unless you are making milk with it smile

Tap water should be fine but if you want to be extra careful, boiled and cooled.

Bottled spring water can have a high level of minerals in so isn't recommended for making up bottles but a dribble in a cup for a 6 mo should be fine.

Thank you both.

Tap is better for you than filtered

Really - how come? I generally drink filtered as I much prefer the taste (live in v hard-water area).
