Hi,
Welcome to HCM
First of all I would like to inform you that unexplained cry is a common is infancy as in any adverse feelings of the baby will be expressed only by the crying.In is not true that pain abdomen is the only causes of unexplained crying.Newborn usually remains comfortable at mother laps rather than bed and they also love to sleep while moving.Actually consoling a infant/newborn is a art and this art is the best way to handle a crying infant not medicine.Do not depends on medicine though it may help sometimes.Try to understand the psychology of infancy and do not worry with a normal human behavior.
Thanking you and hope you understand all of this.
