Richard Saunders: Paregoric for me and mine, thankyouverymuch./off my lawn
Great Porn Dragon: NuttierThanEver: No that is even more old school than whiskey subby. I used to work at a historic park with homes and businesses from the 1800's and the Dr.s office was full of old boxes labelled to be used for everything from the vapors to colicky babies and many of them contained laudanum, essence of poppy or tincture of opiumThis--rubbing heroin on babby's gums comes from the days where heroin was actually an OTC drug (!) and commercial "soothing syrups" had enough H in it to make junkies jealous of the new addition to the family.(On a darker note, apparently one of the things that led to the end of "soothing syrups" was its use in many a "baby farm" to kill off the "undesirables" unlikely to be adopted (read: Babbies Of Colour and/or babbies who were born with disabilities or even with noticeable large birthmarks and the like). In some cases this went on well into World War II, even.)
Rumpertumpskin: Krokodil in my house... the drug that makes its own gravy.
NuttierThanEver: Mugato: I find if the baby won't stop screaming, heroin relieves the tension. I still don't know what to do about the baby though.Why is the baby crawling on the ceiling?
