Any suggestions about a day care incident?

My son has been going to day care since mid January. Just about the last two months things have been disappearing from his cubby and diaperbag at his day care. He is the youngest baby boy there and he is 5 months. The other baby is a little girl and she is almost 1. Of course I send his bottles with him well about three weeks ago, I hadn't noticed at the time, one of the caps, nipples and lid to one of his bottles had been swapped. I did not think anything of it until about two weeks ago when I was cleaning his bottles and actually putting them together to put away, usually I was them and just sent them aside apart. Well, today he had came home from day care and it happened AGAIN, but this time to one of his bottles we just got the day before Easter, which personally I like these bottles a lot I think they are cool. First time when I realized it I tried to let it slide with thinking it was a mistake because they were probably making two bottles at one time and it was a accident. But it happened again, and I had a stupid feeling it would. I asked them to PLEASE make and leave his thing separate from the other babies YESTERDAY. Well I am really frustrated with the day care because not only this incident, but they try to tell ME how much my son each. My son eats once every four hours, he gets bored. Well the other little girl is spoiled and has to be picked up or she will scream at the top of her lungs leaving my son to be sitting in a bouncing chair all day. They think he gets hungry when he really wants some attention. His clothes have gone missing which I have no clue as to why cause he is the smallest one there. I am trying to restrain myself from going up to his day care and blowing up on someone, but it is starting to get hard. Any suggestions as to what I should do?

Label EVERYTHING! With permanent marker! That way there is NO question.

labeling will work if it is in fact the daycare itself, what if its another parent making the grab as they are picking up their child? Of course now a days permanent marker can be removed as easily as crayola washables. You dont really want to label nipples for the bottles as it might release toxins into the nipple. So you can either continue to be polite about the missing items and let it slide. Send things that arent quite as dear or important for that setting. But for them to not attend to your son in a more caring manner is just not ok. It is time to find another daycare, really.
