In brief: Depends

If baby appears unusually irritable, then take baby to pediatrician more urgently.
Sometimes colic can affect little ones and they will settle with warm blanket on tummy, frequent burping and/or mylicon drops.

In brief: What else

Brazelton defined patternsof nl infant crying (for no reason) in the 60's with starting @~1hr/d peaking @6wks @ 2hr & back under 1hr by 3mo.
If you ck ur momy list & baby is feeding well, wetting diapers/4hr, not too hot/cold & may just be tired, crying time is not the best indicator for action.If feeding poorly, not aleart or playful part of the day or ur internal red flag is up-go in.
