Poor the cats

The baby spent a few days suffering crippling stomach cramps and Not Sleeping which meant that the rest of us also suffered crippling ear pain, and crippling back pain (from carrying him around to soothe him) and also Not Sleeping, and what with one thing and another we forgot to stock up on catfood.

And discovered we'd run out at 11pm when three starving cats were casting themselves upon the ground and/or looking at us imploringly and then we were all "We know! Let us give them that dodgy fish from the fridge because cats! They're animals! They can digest anything!"

And that night the baby was sleeping, and I was sleeping, and we could hear the cats outside the bedroom crying piteously and I was sleepy and didn't want to play CatButler to let them in and out and in and out and in and out because we were all "it will be fine! They have a clean litter tray in the bathroom!" and "What can go wrong with them in one night anyway?"

Well lo and behold, in the morning there was cat poo in front of the bathroom door (because my mother had unthinkingly closed it in the night, and the cats could not get to their litter tray but did courteously poo as close to it as physically possible) and there were pools of cat sick in the living room (well i guess some of that mewling was pained mewling) because apparently they don't like dodgy trout.

Agh, bad animal-parent guilt. Good thing two of them are deeply forgiving animals, and one has the memory of a goldfish.

I've also been called upon to mediate because my mother left out the sweater she is knitting for the baby not realising that it's like crack to the furred ones and they kindly unpicked most of it and unspooled the wool throughout the house in the manner of gleeful Andrex puppies and because it's not my knitting I was all "Oh shit" but mostly AWWWWWWw and my mother was mostly $%$^&*O)&^%%%%!!!!!!!!!!!

He's been screaming much less since I started drinking tea made from cumin seeds which apparently has a soothing effect on the infant digestive system. Poor the baby! Whatever hurts them is always the worst thing in the entire world and will last forever oh noes oh noes.

Is it colic? I've heard horror stories about it, but neither of mine had it.

I think that lasts well through the teenage years. :)

It is a form of colic I think. He's definately having major digestive issues and suffering bloating and trapped wind and then cramping up and crying with the pain of it for hours. Poor the baby.

On the plus side, nowadays farting in this house causes calm and celebration.
