Can I use hot tap water to make baby formula?
When using water for cooking or preparing baby formula, we recommend that you use cold water. Hot water is generally created by your home water heater which may contain impurities. In addition, metals from household pipes and plumbing (faucets) dissolve quicker in hot water than cold water, therefore, cold water may contain less impurities than hot water.
