Water plays an essential role in the life of pregnant women, young mothers and babies. It is therefore essential, for you and your baby, to choose the water that’s best adapted to all of your needs.
Throughout pregnancy, water plays a vital role. On average, it represents 60% of your weight and is completely renewed every seven weeks, primarily through the water you drink. In addition, this water contributes to the formation and renewal of the amniotic fluid, the environment in which your baby develops and lives for the first nine months of life. At 25 weeks, the foetus itself is nearly 90% water. The quality of the water you drink is therefore crucial both for your own health and your baby’s.
Water continues to play a key role in your baby’s development even after birth. For the first several months, a baby’s sole source of nutrition is either breast milk or formula. And in both cases, the primary ingredient is water. In fact, 87% of breast milk is the water you drink. This water must be of natural purity, consistency and unique balance. evian® Natural Mineral Water is light with a neutral taste and is particularly appropriate during this key stage of baby’s development.
As your baby grows, it is important to give them clean water that is free from pollutants, contains low levels of nitrates and has a reliable mineral blance to protect your baby’s fragile kidneys. Month after month, during this formative period of life when water is truly fundamental, make sure you give your baby the best protection and guarantee to support healthy development.
