My 6 week old baby cries at 4:30 every night

My baby cries at around 4:30 every night he will stop briefly & then start again.
This goes until about 7:00 when he will fall asleep. It's not wind or colic.
He has been doing it for about a week now & I thought it was because he was overtired. The last 2 days I have made sure he had plenty of extra sleep to see if it helps with no luck.
He is the most laid back happy baby at any other time if day.
Is this normal???

When I was pregnant with my oldest girl I was very active. I took long walks on the park and stayed in the gym until the day before she was born. When I was restless at nights I would go for walks in the nearby park. When she was born, I was very frustrated as I experienced the same problem. One night out of pure frustration I took, wrapped her up and left for the park rocking her and singing to her. Within a few minutes she fell asleep. It didn't matter whether it was evening or early morning hours this was my saviour. It was almost as if she recognised our pattern together. Hope this helps.
