HELP! Sleepless baby (and mommy) -- need advice on a schedule/routine when starting from scratch

My daughter and I are visiting my family on the east coast for 1 month. It has been 2 weeks and everything has fallen apart. She is 17 weeks old. Before we left we had gotten into a routine and she was only awakening 3 times during the night and feeding about 1oz during each. This was a great improvement. Here she has no real schedule, sleeps in a pack-n-play in the same room and eats when someone wants to feed her sometime 1oz sometimes 4oz and naps whenever if at all. She is VERY crabby all day. And has even started making this nails on chalkboard sound. This is day 7 she has been waking up 4-6 times during the night. We are both at our wits end. I know we need to try and get back into a schedule in general but I'm wondering if there isn't something else I am missing. And what should the schedule be at this point?
