I'm breastfeeding and pumping/bottle feeding. My hands were getting really dry from all the washing of the parts and bottles. So I just started using rubber gloves during the washings. I noticed that the silicone nipples are tinted yellow now, I'm assuming from the rubber gloves.

Would you still use them? I've set them aside for now (just two), and I'm using a couple others. I want to protect my very dry and starting to chap hands, but I don't want to introduce anything toxic to my baby. I figured since they are silicone, they might just be stained and not retaining anything bad. But I don't know. Any opinions?

I don't really have any strong advice, but maybe you could boil them? see if it makes a difference?

I asked my mom she said the same, boil them and see if it helps the color.
