I've been trying to figure out why Boog seems to get stuffy and congested when he goes to be at night. He also seems to get more colds and viruses than the rest of us. Hubster always goes for the most dramatic and expensive solutions and believes it's mole under the house. Wouldn't that affect us all? I started looking into other things.
It could just be that Boog is a first grader and spends more time than the rest of us around germy kids, but his sister never gets anything he has. She could just have a better immune system. Then I came across this video and thought "What disgusting stuff is in his pillow?" I've probably purchased 8 pillows in the past 2 years with Boog and Puddin Pop each getting a new bed but...Boog insists on using the absolute oldest, and flattest pillow we own. I think it probably ranks up there with the germs and dust mites of the last lady. Ewww, right? I'm going to toss it right NOW.
Okay. I'm back.
Now that I know that pillows should regularly (every 4-5 years) be replaced. I'm thinking that writing the purchase date on the tag would be a good idea. Otherwise how would you know?
My daughter has 3 pillows on her bed but two are in pillow shams and never get used. I may rotate them on laundry day. Son has 2 pillows (one now) and I'm looking to replace the one I just threw out with an allergy pillow...just to see if that diminishes his late night stuffiness and susceptibility to colds. I believe Hubster and I have 7 on our bed. He uses pillows behind his back and butt (for support) and between his knees and claims this is the only way he can get comfortable. Who wants to put their head on those? Ewwww. I have a pillow that is unlike anyone else's and always make sure it's my pillow under my head. I haven't always been this anal about my pillow. It started when Hubster started with the back, butt and knee pillows. Do you blame me?
So what is your pillow replacement procedure. Did you have one before now?
