As a general rule, no! Mineral water usually contains high levels of minerals, such as sodium, fluoride or calcium, that a baby's kidneys cannot tolerate. Spring water too, should be avoided, as there is no requirement to list the mineral contents and this too could be lethally high for a baby. The only safe bottled waters for baby will be labelled as such. If you need to give your baby water, it is best to use boiled and cooled tap water.

People prefer to drink mineral water rather than tap water as mineral water has had all the bad microbes taken out by a filter. Tap water however, has had the bad microbes taken out with small amounts of chlorine The chlorine is not good for you to drink. Now though, at home you can by a tap filter to get mineral water out of your tap.
