Should I Filter Baby’s Water?

Nice clean, soft, purified water. Yes, it is for drinking, and also for baby’s other needs. The whole family can benefit from a water filtering system, to be installed shortly. You can install them on sink faucets, as in the kitchen, or the whole house. I love the idea of better water in the shower. It makes your skin feel smooth and less chemically attacked. Your hair comes out better and less tangled after washing. It’s just a good all-around policy if you care about toxic things floating in the fluid.

So, yes, the baby gets filtered water for drinking and bath. All the kids want it. I have spoken of it and have sung its praises enough to friends on the phone. I have researched it on the Internet and in magazine articles. They have piped in with their high-pitched vocal support. I don’t think these little tots even know what they are talking about, but they are in!

Water filter systems aren’t as expensive as they seem. Yes, you can just get a budget one for drinking water and keep pitchers and bottles of clean water in the fridge. You just change the cartridges from time to time. I am talking here about one of the better whole house water filter systems though. which are more costly. I think that it is worth it in terms of its many benefits, especially for the baby. Over time, I don’t think we will notice the increase in budget. At least I will save money on hand and body lotion! The good ones cost a couple hundred dollars to a thousand with additional outlay for replacement parts. If you do your research, you will find just the right one.

What do you get? First of all, you purchase a model that suits the number of rooms in your home. Upon installation, you get spring-like water right in your own home. It comes with a tank and various valves. Presto, no more itchy skin or chemical smells during bathing. A company comes out to do it for you so you can be assured it has been correctly placed. Replacing the inner filters is easy. You can go battery or electrical and both types come with warranties. So there’s no worry or guesswork.

Other pluses besides baby-quality water is that filtration systems cut down on bacteria and they don’t waste water. No guilt needed! And…drum roll…you get better tasting coffee and tea. Who knew! I am liking this more and more. It’s because that nasty chlorine and those dreaded heavy metals are nowhere to be seen. Herbicides and pesticides aren’t likely to be in civilized city water systems, but if they should rear their ugly heads, they will be dealt with apace.

Companies that sell filtering systems for household water tout the latest technology with catalytic carbon this and ion exchange that. I don’t care how it’s done, just that it works. I am doing something good for my family and that makes me feel great.
