Hydration For Pregnant Moms, New Moms and Babies

I remember how thirsty I was all the time while I was pregnant and after my two boys were born and I was breastfeeding them. I used to carry a bottle of water with me all day all over the house and re-fill it all the time. Staying hydrated is super important but even more important is the water you are putting in your body and passing to your baby.

I wish I had known about the ZeroWater filtration system back then. ZeroWater is a high performance water filtration system that employs a patented 5-stage filter compared to most on the market that are only 2-stage.  The result is great-tasting water in just minutes removing all lead as well as other heavy metals including chromium that may be present in  your tap water. ZeroWater filters remove 99.6% of TDS (Total Dissolved Solids) from your water.

Not sure about how clean your water is? You can get it tested yourself with a water testing kit found at any home improvement store. You can also call in a professional who will offer more detailed lab analysis.

Contaminants such as lead are detrimental to pregnant women and children under six years of age, they can even cause developmental delays, slowed growth, learning disabilities and more. Using filtered water is the better option when expecting, nursing a baby or introducing water to your little one.

There are many water filter systems available on the market. Some offer more purification than others, however ZeroWater is the only filter certified by the National Science Foundation to reduce lead. We have been using their filters and we are loving the great-tasting filter water we are now drinking.



ZeroWater offers products like 6 Cup to 23 Cup pitcher and dispensers, starting at $19.99 and available at major retailers across the US and Canada.
