Ok so I started my 4 month old daughter on bottles while she's in daycare..but my aunt says their nipples that act like breatsnipples but I'm confused on what to do. I don't think she's getting enough milk because when I bring her home, she "chugs" down the milk like it's nothing. So another question is that is it save to boil the nipples in a pan in hot water or will it melt the plastic?? I'm honestly totally confuesed!!!

So, you're nursing at home and shes getting bottles are daycare?   What is your concern, specifically?   How much milk is she taking at daycare?

She's breastfed right?
Baby only ever needs 1-1.25oz per hour in bottles no larger than 3oz. Bottles aren't supposed to satisfy her, they're supposed to take the edge off and be seen as "low supply" time, which makes you the feast and keeps your supply up.
There's no special bottle you have to use for a breastfed baby, whatever bottle they drink from is just fine. Most bottles/nipple are ok to boil unless the package they came in says otherwise. Have you joined the Breastfeeding Moms group?

That's what the daycare lady said but i don't know if that's a normal new mom thing but I pack more because when I'm not with her I bite my nails worrying if she has enough milk and when I pick her up she usually has more than enough but I get so worried :(
