Hello Nur 99 Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com
Infants aged 6 months and older begin to be recognized by food or referred to as complementary foods ASI (MPASI), where ASI is still given with additional food that is appropriate for their age. At the age of 7 months many types of food can be provided with a soft consistency such as porridge. To meet the fluid intake in infants it is recommended that you continue to give milk to the baby.
The following article is further about: MPASI 6-month-old baby
If you need mineral water to meet your baby's MPASI needs, there are no restrictions or recommendations on the use of certain types of mineral water. Noteworthy is, you need to recognize drinking water that is fit for drinking. In Indonesia the drinking water requirement is based on the decision of the minister of health, namely:
Water has no taste, is odorless, is colorless, is not turbid, and is not in high temperatures
Does not contain bacteria
Do not contain chemicals, such as pesticides and disinfectants, exceeding the permitted limits.
Bottled drinking water is provided in glass, plastic bottles are safe to use as long as you pay attention to the content in the water, and make sure the bottled water is not exposed to sunlight or high temperatures in a long time. And if you want to consume bottled water, you should make sure the lid is still intact, clear, clean bottles and have been registered by BPOM.
If you are going to use water sourced from PAM or boiled ground water, it will not make this water condition safe for consumption. Because these water sources can be contaminated by materials such as lead, pesticides, or nitrates that do not disappear when boiled.
