Travel Discs/ideas for Sealing Playtex Nursers?

I have looked everywhere for the small travel discs for placing between the nipple and the liner for Playtex Drop-Ins bottles. I have a couple (they must have come with my first bottle set), but I cannot find anywhere to buy replacements or extras. Babies R Us and Target don't carry them. I can't find them online. Does anyone have any ideas about how to help keep my bottles from spilling on the ride to day care? I can't believe Playtex doesn't sell travel discs. Every other bottle type has them. So I am looking for any ideas. Thanks!!...

Infant with Reflux

I have a almost 5 month old baby boy with reflux. He was born 13 weeks early. The doctor has him on previcid and it has not seemed to work. We have him on the Similic Advance formula. He does ok the first half of his feed, then the rest of his feed he will fight eating. Sometimes after he burps it gets better. He spits up after almost every feed. He is gaining weight. I was wondering if anyone else has had these problems and what worked for you. I am thinking of calling the doctor and putting him on a different formula. He also will cry...

Baby Crying While Bottle Feeding at 4 Months, Starting Formula

We are transitioning from breastmilk to formula for my 4 month old baby. As we are increasing the amount of formula per feeding (every feeding is mixed with some breastmilk), we are noticing that he seems to turn his head to the side and cry for the first few minutes. After this time he will sometimes get the hang of it and finish the bottle, but sometimes he will end up only taking a few ounces. It does not seem to be gas related. I am wondering what may be causing this--pain, distraction, etc. It seems to be about the same for...

7 Month Old Refuses to Eat from Bottle

I have a 7 month old daughter who will not eat from a bottle. I have been breastfeeding. Up until about 2 months ago, she would occasionally eat a bottle of pumped milk fed to her by her dad or grandma. Now, she absolutely refuses. I was gone all day yesterday, and she went without milk for 12 hours because she wouldn't eat from the bottle. We did start feeding her some solids in the past couple months, but I'm not sure that has anything to do with it. It seems like she forgot how to eat from the bottle. She will kind of chew the...
