Most likely your tap water is perfectly safe for your baby. There's a lot of hype about bottled nursery water, and you might think you need it, but in most cases this is an unnecessary cost.

Finding out if your tap water is safe enough for your baby is an easy task. There are a couple of ways you can do this. You can check the quality of your drinking water by contacting your local water authority or water company - water companies are required by law to produce an annual water quality report which lists common contaminates found in your water system (if any). You can also visit this link to learn more about water safety in your community. Also, you should know that if your water is truly dangerous, the water company is required to notify the community. In most cases, there's not going to be anything to worry about. You can give your baby tap water and make food and formula with tap water with few concerns if you get a clean water report. It's silly to waste your money on water when you've got diapers and cute baby outfits to buy. If you're still concerned then invest in a water filter. You can purchase a faucet attached filter or go with something more long-term like an in-faucet water filter. If your water is deemed safe by the water company then a filter is a cost you don't need. If your water tastes like chlorine, you can fix it yourself. Simply fill a pitcher with water and allow it to sit out for a day or so which will evaporate the chlorine taste.
