I grew up with a sister who's asthmatic. I witnessed how she would gasp for air and cough her lungs out like there's no tomorrow. Being the mischievous sibling that I was (teehee!), I still found the humor to mimick her.
Well, all that changed when I witnessed my own boy having his own asthma attack. Rap was barely a year old then and we have just transferred homes from Makati to Sta. Rosa, Laguna. It puzzled me that he got asthmatic when one of the reasons why we moved was to give him a place with cleaner air. Along with a nebulizer and vials of anti-asthma meds, we were also adviced to change his pillows and bedding with one that's made of fiberfill.Fiberfill is made of synthetic fiber and it is used as fillings of throw pillows, cushions, and comforters. Compared to cotton or feathers, fiberfill is hypoallergenic and is resistant to dust mites, bacteria, and other allergens. Most baby pillows I see in the stores here in the Philippines are made of fiberfill. When Rap turned older, we replaced his baby pillow with the one I bought from a Dakki reseller. It's an Elmo pillow that's vaccum-packed and he's still using it up to now. Uh-oh, he'll hate me for spilling this out!
