Customers must use safe, clean water that has been properly treated and sterilized when introducing their baby to water, whether to mix formula or to drink. This includes the water used to clean baby bottles and feeding equipment.Babies are more susceptible to illnesses and infections during their first year of life because their immune systems are still developing.
WHEN CAN BABIES HAVE WATER?
It is best not to give new baby water until he or she is 6 months old. Breast milk or formula meets all nutritional needs for health and development during the newborn stage. Furthermore, mothers do not want to overfeed their babies with water because she/he may not be hungry for feedings. Because of her/his decreased appetite, she/e may become malnourished, potentially leading to weight loss. It may also reduce the mother's supply of breast milk. Never dilute formula with water, and always consult with a doctor before introducing water into the diet of a newborn baby.
WHAT KIND OF WATER PRUFIER IS BEST FOR BABIES?
Have the customer's water tested before they buy a water treatment unit so they know exactly which contaminants are in their water and which type of filtration system will best suit their needs. Options range from a basic countertop model to a sophisticated system. Filters are broadly classified into the following groups:
- 1. SEDIMENTS FILTER
Sediment filters are used to remove suspended matter like mud, clay, dust, or any organic matter. They do not, however, remove all contaminants such as heavy metals, bacteria, and viruses. These are best used in conjunction with other filtration methods. Sediment filters are also used as pre-filters to keep contaminants out of other water purification systems.For effective filtration and water flow, regular maintenance is required, and the cartridge/candle that traps contaminants must be changed at the appropriate time.
- 2. REVERSE OSMOSIS FILTER
All such filters are effective at purifying hard water that has been contaminated with waterborne, disease-causing bacteria and viruses. They also eliminate pollutants such as chemicals and metal particles. RO filters can remove impurities from water as it passes through a semipermeable membrane. Because these filters run on electricity, you'll need to plan ahead of time and store water if you have frequent power outages in your area.
- 3. ULTRA-VIOLET FILTERS
UV water purifiers remove the majority of the harmful bacteria and viruses that cause the most common water-borne illnesses.As it passes through the filtration chamber, the purified water is exposed to an ultraviolet light source. Because of the UV light exposure, any harmful microbes and pathogens are killed during this process.While it is effective at killing viruses and bacteria, the dead organisms remain in the water even though they are no longer harmful. Furthermore, the UV light does not assist in the removal of other contaminants such as heavy metals, sediments, and chemicals.
As a result, many people prefer to purify water using other filtration systems before passing it through a UV radiation process. These filters are also powered by electricity, so keep power outages in mind. Regular maintenance is required to ensure that the UV light is operating properly and at the appropriate intensity. If it does not, water-borne microbes can pass through and multiply in the water chamber, rendering the water unfit for human consumption.
- 4. ULTRA-FILTRATION
UF filters, like RO filters, purify water by passing it through a semi-permeable membrane. For those who live in areas with low chemical contamination, UF water filters are a good option. UF filters are effective at removing bacteria and viruses but ineffective at removing dissolved salts and chemicals found in water.
Electricity or a specific water pressure are not required for UF filters. They also have a longer lifespan and are less difficult to maintain. They must, however, be cleaned on a regular basis, often weekly, to remove bacteria and contaminants that become trapped in the membrane.
- 5. ACTIVATED CARBON FILTERS
Other carbon-based, organic chemicals, as well as some microorganisms, can be filtered out by these purifiers.They are ineffective at removing chemicals that do not bind to carbon, such as nitrates, sodium, fluorides, and heavy metals. They are also ineffective at removing certain bacteria and viruses.Activated charcoal purifiers are typically used in conjunction with other types of filters to remove contaminants that other filters may be incapable of removing.
