distilled water safe???

My friend brought me distilled water even though I quoted drinking water. Is this water safe to drink for my kids as well as me being 13 1/2 weeks pregnant?

Yes.  The only problem that you might have is that the plastic container could give a flavor to the water, but that happens with drinking water also.

Please please please do NOT drink distilled water!  It is meant to go into machines like humidifiers and such.  A quick google search will show you the effects of drinking it.  Please  be careful!  A happy, healthy pregnancy to all!  :)

^^^ what? Distilled water is the purest of them all. That is why it is meant to go into humidifiers, because it doesn't have the minerals and particulants that muck up the inner workings of the machines over time. Distilled means that the water was filtered by using evaporation to pull pure h2o out of a solution, condense it back into water droplets, and collect it-thus u get distilled. All the minerals and chemicals are left when the water originally evaporates

The largest concern with water these days, especially bottled waters, is alkaline vs. Acidic water. YouTube yourself into that craziness... Though I warn you....you may not want to drink water again because it is such a stress choosing the right one
