Do I need to boil bottled water?

Postnatal, Your questions

If I use bottled water to dilute my 2-month-old baby’s milk, is this water ready to use for the mix, or should I boil it first? Thanks for your help, Christiane.


The only bottled water you can directly use is labelled as sterile water. If you find it in a store, it will be much more expensive than other types because it was already boiled. All the other bottled waters sold in stores need to be boiled up to four months of age. This applies to tap water, home water coolers, city or well water, etc. I hope this answers your question, Christiane.
