My husband, My 7 month old son and me have just moved from the UK to Denmark. I thought that the water was OK to drink here, so I boiled it and have been giving it to my son in his bottles as I would in the UK. I have also been drinking the water from the taps.
I am got a very painful stomach, we are also getting through 14 soiled nappies a day, and I am constantly on the loo.
I thought the water quality was supposed to be good here, to be honest, I was like this when I went on holiday to Cuba!
I think it is terrible. I bought a new kettle a week ago and it has already furred up.
I am not sure if bottled water is any better, but I am buying that tomorrow!
