It seems to be like Infantile colic.
It does occur in healthy infants.

If its associated with following, you have to show to Pediatrician immediately:
Persistent moaning or weak crying
-High-pitched, shrill cry,Irritability,Lethargy
-Vomiting,Change in stool (constipation or diarrhea, especially with blood or mucous)
-Fussing during eating

You can give probiotics like sporolac half sachet mixed in water for 3days.
