So sorry to hear that your sister is having a rough time with her little one and crying!  It's been a few months since you posted, how are they doing?  Have the doctors thought about it being colic?

I also went through this.  It's so sad when they cry like this.  And frustrating when we can't soothe them.  I think first you have to make sure nothing is wrong.  Like a boo boo, diaper, hungry and all of those basics.  Once they are not, some babies do well with oral soothing like a pacifier.  Not sure how you feel about that but to get some sleep, I'm all for it.  However, then you run into the issue that I did that if the pacifier fell out and baby woke up, they cant get it back in themselves so they cry for THAT.  It's a never ending whirlwind of crying sometimes.  Do you have a good partner that takes half the duty?  And since it has been awhile, how is your baby doing now?  Not a baby anymore?  :>)))
And I guess this isn't your child but your sister's.
