Dh noticed it last night, its soft and squishy, there are no feathers on it. It seems to be filled with air. I've read a bunch of threads on things like this, but they all have varying answers. Is this always a symptom of it being hurt? My kids (10 and 8) were handling them a few days ago, but they are usually very soft with them. I also have a 2 yo but she hasn't been allowed to pick them up, though its possible she somehow snuck in there. Has anyone dealt with this directly and what was your outcome? I don't want to puncture it b/c I'd rather not deal with infection. Will it really just "go away on its own"? Is there a risk of death? She has been acting just fine, in fact she is the most vigorous eater.
