Hi, my daughter is 7 months old and I'm trying to get her used to using a beaker with cooled boiled water. I'm a bit paranoid about using water straight from the tap. I thought it was okay after 6 months but an 'old school' nursery nurse suggested I should always boil it. What do you all do?

Straight from the tap.

Tap, if you think about everything else that goes in their mouths at this age tap water is the least of our worries grin

That's very true actually. I think I'm way too paranoid about everything as this is my first child!

I don't sterilise anything anymore either.

Tap. No need to sterilise either.
