Every parent wants the best for their baby and often has questions about what type of water is best. Good news, we are here to answer your questions and help! Best Water’s Water Treatment Systems ensure the water babies come in contact with is safe and pure.
Infants and children are very vulnerable to all forms of contamination. Research is alerting us that their precious little bodies are far more susceptible to the risk of contamination than adults.
Water supplies – municipal and well – contain many impurities, which enter our body through ingestion. Some chemical contaminants are carcinogenic; others like bacteria, viruses, parasites and cysts can potentially make you and your baby very ill.
In what ways does drinking water influence your families’ early years and how can contaminants affect them?
Drinking and Formula Water
Some moms decide to breast feed, while others choose to bottle feed their baby. In either case since your baby will be consuming water at some point, you must pay attention to this ingredient.
Preparing baby formula with untreated, boiled, tap water presents a health risk to your baby since hundreds of potential contaminants are known in our water supplies. Although boiling water before use kills germs and eliminates chlorine, contaminants like lead, nitrates, and pesticides can still be in the water you are giving your baby. And since boiling reduces the volume of water, it increases the concentration of those contaminants making matters even worse.
Nitrates are one of the most common and widespread contaminants in North Florida. When you prepare a bottle-fed baby’s formula with water high in Nitrates, or drink water or juice containing Nitrates, the baby can develop a potentially fatal condition called “Blue Baby Syndrome”: this is when Nitrates interfere with the blood’s ability to carry oxygen to all parts of the body.
Lead contamination is not as common but can occur and have serious long-term implications to your family’s health, including impairment to children’s brain development and learning abilities.
Giving your baby bottled water instead of tap water is expensive and not a healthy alternative. The bottled water industry is not regulated as well as municipalities are. Furthermore, since regulation enforcement is minimal there is no assurance that bottled water is safer than tap water.
Purifying tap water at home, using quality Water Treatment Equipment, guarantees safe and pure water free of contaminants for your baby and your whole family.
Cooking Water for Your Baby
When your baby moves onto solid foods preparing them with Purified Water will have further benefits. Untreated tap water sometimes has unpleasant tastes or smells. Preparing food with it may cause your baby to reject it, making feeding time more difficult for both of you. By purifying the water, you won’t introduce unpleasant tastes from tap water into your baby’s food.
