Pediatrician 's  Response
As long as the baby is on breast feeds there should be no major issues.At present the crying episode could be because of colic .Can try giving the baby some antispasmodic medication after consultaion with her pediatrician.Burp the baby well after every feed because if the baby doesnot burp the air while feeding could reach the intenstine and can lead to such colics in future.
Take care.
