I used regular bottled water or water from our refrigerator dispenser, which is filtered.

hi-
i am from NJ too, and in bergen county we do not have fluoride in the tap water. I am not sure where in NJ you are so you should check with your doctor on whether you have fluoride or not. I am pretty sure most of NJ is fluoride free.

we used to boil tap water in our tea pot every night and then either make a pitcher of formula to use all day, or i would just put the room temperature teapot water in the bottle, put in the formula and shake it and use it.

our doctor gave both of my girls vitamins starting at 6 months and it has fluoride in it, they are on a vitamin with fluoride until they get all of their adult teeth in.

i think using the nursery water is a waste of money in my opinion, but if you do plan on using it, please let your doctor know, so he can adjust the vitamins at 6 months old. if you get too much fluoride it is dangerous.

I actually used plan old tap water right from the start - no boiling. The Dr said that we should use our regular water and not bottled water because of the lack of fluride in bottled water. If your water is questionable for some reason then the bottled seems fine but ours is just fine and we never even thought about going the bottled route. That seems like a PITA if you ask me. The Dr did say that if we weren't using the regular water that he would have added a fluride supplement but I don't remember when he said that (month wise).
