That age group is known for crying. Crying is a sign of one of two things: pain or need. The hard part might be finding out which one it is.
They may need a change of scenery, need some attention from mommy, their belly might hurt because you have them on the wrong milk, or they have gas.
Have you spoke to your doctor about it? They can rule out a few things such as acid reflux or the wrong formula.
Try holding them in weird ways sometimes can help. My niece was only quiet when i had her belly on my shoulder. The pressure was just right for her to be out of the pain she was in. My daughter has acid reflux so laying her down always made her cry. Most days she slept in a back carrier. Just keep trying and you might find what works.
Most babies cry less around 6-8 months. Mine personally was when she started solid food. Seems a lot find that is when they find some peace also. Some find that swings are the answer to the crying.
Remember to take breaks if you need it. Although she might be crying go ahead and leave her and take a minute for yourself. See if a family member can come over and help watch her sometimes while you take a nice soak in the tub or something. It's very important to take care of yourself when you have a baby who cries so much.
