Thanks for your important question.  Intra-Pour water for irrigation Fresenius is a special sterile hypotonic water used for irrigating surgical wounds. It is definitely not recommended that you use this water in your newborn baby's formula. If you wish to use a high quality water to mix with your baby's formula, spring water sold in 5 litre containers in supermarkets is good. Follow the instructions carefully when preparing your baby's formula.
