Either they need something, or they are in pain.
The needs something part could be anything,from diaper change, change of scenery, or attention from mom.... like i said anything.
The pain part could be gas, hungry, problems digesting milk, an itchy spot they don't have the motor skills to reach (god only knows, I would cry about that)
My biggest cry baby had to be in a carrier most of the day to not cry. She actually had horrible acid reflux and laying down actually hurt her. I always felt bad with her being toted around asleep with her head slumped to the side. She got much better once she started to eat solids.
If you are concerned about the amount of crying feel free to call your doctor. It might be a milk allergy or even constipation.. or numerous other things that they can check into. They may even suggest you change formulas if that is what she is eating. If you are breast feeding you can try changing your diet.

My son was so mellow for the first 3 months and then he seemed to have horrible gas 30 min after nursing and cry like crazy, but his dr said it was not colic. he's 11 now and has always had bad GI issues/chronic constipation....so maybe just more trouble with gas???? He outgrew the crying by about 7-8 months.....Hang in there...I'm sure you are giving him what he needs....the crying can really wear you down though....it's ok to put him down and let him cry with you in the room or hall for a bit if you need a break....Hang in there sweet mama.....
