How heart breaking--even more so because I know this happens. The baby's name threw me off and made me think you were personifying the insect cicadas. This is powerful--I just wish it never happened.
A very heartrending story. Sadly, this really does happen.
Good writing!
Sad and a bit creepy. A well-written piece.
WOW, bold submission here and right on topic! Thanks for the walk on the dark side.
Very sad story. And yes, true colic only lasts for 12 weeks, but I had a baby with 'colic' for 10 months :) Good job with a sad topic.
Short, impactful, no more words needed.
If you were trying to cause a most unpleasant feeling in the pit of the stomach, you succeeded.

Red ink: I have come to expect better editing in Masters. I presume you meant "a swig of his soda."
"There nothing they could do for it."
