The Environmental Working Group (EWG) has charged Nursery Water, makers of a fluoridated bottled water, with misleading parents into believing fluoride is safe for infants when it is not.

EWG reports, "Both the American Dental Association (ADA) and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) have raised questions or published warnings about the risks of fluoride for infants, driven by their susceptibility to fluoride-induced damage to tooth enamel called fluorosis, a defect of the permanent teeth resulting in staining and, in severe cases, substantial corrosion of the enamel.'

EWGs analysis shows that a significant percentage of infants drinking between one and two bottles daily of powdered formula using Nursery Water would be exposed to fluoride at levels the exceed the Environmental Protection Agencys (EPAs) safe dose for infants, established to protect against fluorosis.(EPA 1989)"

Also the salt levels in bottled water are not safe for children but you will also find that most tap water will also have floride in it. You cant get away from it.
