I have been reading the archives about flouride and I didn't find anything about what is too much flouride. We just moved to a house with a well and it was tested to have 2.2 mg (?) of flouride naturally in it. On the test form it says that 1.4 or so is the max amount for dental care. So I am wondering if I shouldn't feed my toddler this water. I understand the concerns about flouride. I didn't have flouride growing up and had lots of cavities too. I don't want that to happen to my ds. I use non-flouride toothpaste with him now. Any advice on how to approach the well water?<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/confused.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Confused">:

Check out this thread! This link will take you to page 3 where Smilemomma says at the bottom of the page that 2.5 ppm is too much to ingest. The entire thread is a really good LONG one!<br><a href="http://216.92.20.151/discussions/showthread.php?s=&threadid=299&perpage=20&highlight=favorite&pagenumber=3" target="_blank">http://216.92.20.151/discussions/sho...e&pagenumber=3</a>
