When mixing powder formula do you think its better to use nursery water or just plain distilled water? Does it make a difference?

If you know that the tap water is safe in your area, you can use that! It actually has benefits of minerals, including flouride for incoming teeth, for the little one. We never bought any special water.

I agree.
 
Almost always, city tap water is your better bet, especially if your city has flouridated water. Dentists are seeing a huge influx of kiddos with decaying teeth because their parents used distilled/bottled water when they were infants and they didn't get the flouride necessary to help build strong teeth.

If you decide to use bottled water, Nursery Water does have the amount of flouride recommended by the American Dental Association.
