Review: Nourish Bottled Water for Babies & Toddlers

Nourish is a unique bottled water that is designed for babies and toddlers. Nourish bottled water has a nipple or sippy cup top to make drinking easy on little ones and has a wide neck, so adding formula is easy and mess free. The top has been sanitized and kept sterile with a tamper-evident seal, so you know that your baby will be drinking from a clean, sanitary top. Nourish water itself is purified spring water, bottled at the source and packaged in a patented format that is designed for on-the-go parents and the top is completely spill proof, so no messy clean up. As an added bonus, the bottles are made in the U.S. and are BPA free.

I am not a huge advocate for bottled water, I’ll say that upfront. I think it’s very wasteful to rely on bottled water all the time, but I see its value occasionally. That said, I think Nourish water would be very useful to have on hand for times when you’re in a hurry or would just prefer less bulk to your bag. I had this water in my fridge for awhile before we used it and I grabbed one quickly while I was on my way out the door with one of my daycare’s toddlers. It proved very handy to have around and made the little guy happy on the car ride. It also proved very nice to have around this weekend when my four year old was sick. He had a tummy bug and we couldn’t get him to drink anything and he was becoming dehydrated. Finally, I offered him a Nourish sippy bottle and he thought it was so odd that he took it. He drank the whole thing, and I was very thankful for that. We refilled his bottle and he’s been drinking from it since. It may not be glamorous, but it worked and that’s all that matters.


You can find a retailer or buy Nourish on their website, www.nourish-inc.com. It retails for about $3.50 a bottle and can be found in stores like Whole Foods and even in some U.S. airports.  You can also order Nourish water by the case on Amazon.com and from CSN Stores.
