Many possible answer: Depending on the age of the baby, it could be colic, hunger, thirst, constipation, discomfort from too many clothes, irritation from the diaper, feelings of fear, loneliness etc.
Illness is usually signaled by fever plus other signs, so if none of those, try holding the baby, talking to it, check for sweating from too warm clothes & correct; offer water, foods etc depending on age. Be attentive.

Relax: How frustrating it is to have a crying baby! if you've checked with your doctor and there is nothing wrong, try to relax. It is normal for babies to cry up to 3 hours a day. If you feel yourself feeling frustrated see if someone else can watch them for a while or just put them in their crib and take a bath (where you can't hear them). Taking some time for yourself will make it easier.
