I bought a new bottle for my son yesterday because he suddenly won't take a bottle. I used to give him one every other day just to keep him used to it, and he suddenly decided he didn't want one (I use the Medela ones that come with the pump). I was told that Playtex Drop-in's are really good, and are the most similar to a mother's breast. So I just picked up one to try it. I didn't really think about the fact that it was a latex nipple and not silicone. Well, about 30 seconds after trying to get him to use it (he still didn't take to it, just chewed on the nipple), he got an awful rash around his mouth. I took it away, and just popped the boob in his mouth instead, and it took about 30 minutes for it to start going away. It didn't seem to bother him much. He wasn't trying to itch it or anything. Nothing else seemed to swell and his breathing was fine. He's only 3 months old so I couldn't give him any benadryl.
