In brief: Colic is common

Colic is unexplained crying (not due to pain or hunger) in young babies.
The bouts of crying/fussing add up to more than 3 hours per day, is usually more than 3 days/week, and peaks at 3 weeks-3 months old. The child acts happy and content between bouts of crying.The crying usually stops when the baby is held and comforted. Colic is usually gone by 3-4 months old.See your doc if you have concerns.

In brief: Hunger

Your baby may still be hungry.
She may just be getting the fore milk and not the hind milk, which will make her more content.You can introduce her to 3rd stage baby food which will help as she is growing and busier.
