The Ministry of Health says most baby formula products in New Zealand can be safely mixed with fluoridated water.
The American Dental Association is recommending the use of non-fluoridated water in babies' bottles, because some are absorbing too much of the chemical and developing mottled teeth.Dr Robin Whyman, the ministry's chief adviser on oral health, says studies here have found no sign that fluorosis is increasing. He says most baby formulas available here contain no fluoride, and the few that do should be mixed with non-fluoridated water.Dr Whyman says a study of Southland nine-year-olds found about half had marks on their teeth associated with fluorosis, but that level had not changed since the 1980s.

So that's alright then!
