Hi mommies..I'm moving to Chennai by this weekend. in Most of the places bore water is salt only. Will it harm my baby skin? Will it darken her colour?? Mommies living in Chennai !! how you are handling it?

Hey radhi anand, bore water will have some amount of salt in it. Its true. Please do not worry about skin color. We havr metro and bore water in most of the area. So you can put RO for bore water and use it for your baby or you can heat metro water which will not be salty.

hey dear.  i have had bad experience of bore water on my daughter's skin.  once i tried to clean her bottoms with the tap water and my my poor little baby got rashes on her bummies.
so even if u r using it heat it properly..  let it cool down n thn use for bathing purpose. 
for drinking u can fix up aquaguard😊
I m nt from chennai.  Had experienced the same in surat.

Hai.. Don't worry too much. Babies will adjust soon. Use little more oil for massage and some more moisturiser. Most of the metropolitan area have water problems and it will be a mixed water. You can use " canned water " for baby bath separately. Let baby be strong .

Hi Radhi even in Mumbai itself we have salty water which is not good for hair but thankfully we have another water supply as well which we use. Bore water will not affect on the skin color but it's harsh. avoid using it directly.....you can boil it keep it to cool down then use it for baby...thanks asha chaudhry for the tag☺
