Hi all, I would like to know if drinking mineral water for a period of 1 week is safe? I will b travelling to China as u know, drinking bottled mineral water will b safer than to take their tap water. My sis says we shall boil for hot water from the bottled mineral water. Need to know whether it is safe. I am 4 half mths pregnant. THANKS!

Hi there, before I got my water filter i was drinking bottled water as the tap water in the UK can taste nasty wth all the stuff they put in to make it safe for us to drink. Bottled water I think is the safest, even when pregnant, but just beware of having ice cubes out there as it might be tap water. Hope you have a nice holiday. :o)

My daughter advised me to drink filtered tap water instead of bottled water because few bottled waters have the fluoride needed in pregnancy. It is important for the mother and the developing teeth buds of the baby. He said bottled water isn't bad occa__sionally but whenever there is a choice drink the filtered tap water. Most filters like Brita and the like will not filter out the fluoride. This doesn't help about the water in a different country though.
