Gases are a well-known souce of pain for infants. Thus, parents are usually very concerned about their kids passing gases. If gases get out – all is well. If they don’t – expect sleepless nights.
Olga and I are not an exception. We watch Maxim closely on the issue and share information on how often and how “hard” he did it. Needless to say that Maxim is not very good at controlling his body yet. Passing of gases occurres sporadically. One of the helpers seems to be the stress. When he is nervious about something, his muscles contract and he farts. Hence the expression “nervious fartdown” (“Ð½ÐµÑ€Ð²Ð½Ñ‹Ð¹ Ñ?Ð¿ÑƒÐº”), which is based on “nervious breakdown” (“Ð½ÐµÑ€Ð²Ð½Ñ‹Ð¹ Ñ?Ñ€Ñ‹Ð²”).
