Regular water or infant water?!



Recommended Posts


Its been 3 weeks since my surgery. So every time I tried drinking Water it makes me sick to my stomach!! Bloated, painful gases, and nauseous. Is this normal? 


So I’ve been trying my son Water which is “infant water” and it’s a big difference. So my question is.. is this okay to drink? I know water is water but you never know.

Regular Water according to my dietitian. I asked how about tap water she said that is also fine.

Didn’t know you got special Water, most people here would just use cooled boiled water!

Honestly I prefer tap Water, but my kids insist on bottled water. When I travel to other states I drink only bottled water as their tap water upset my stomach.

Whatever you use, just be sure you're getting in your 64 oz of liquid daily so you don't dehydrate. I've never heard of "infant" Water before.

The infant Water like the nursery brand or Gerber water is lower in Flouride and contain special minerals for baby. I used them to make formulas for my kids.

Some people find that tap Water doesn't agree with them post up. You may consider getting a filter if you find tap doesn't agree with yoy. In the hospital, I ended getting my husband to bring me smartwater to finish my water challenge. The water from a filtered machine was just too metallic tasting. Hydration is hydration get it how you can!

I am good with tap Water in NY and prefer it better. I learned my lesson when I traveled to FL that water tore my stomach up. When I travel overseas i stick to bottled water only.

I tried tap water today it was terrible for me. But someone just told me Mass tap water isn’t good.

It’s the Water they use for baby when you mix the formula. I didn’t know that existed until I moved to Massachusetts.
