Aw.. poor thing.. and you too! At 3 weeks, I would definitely not let her cry it out.. chances are she still needs some essentials and she isn't just crying to cry.. you know? 3 weeks old is still sooooo tiny! Is there any reason you want her in her crib asap? What about a bassinet next to your bed? Or I have heard that darn rock & play is amazing! Speaking of.. many Mamas I know use that if their little one has reflux.. which laying flat in a crib can make way worse.. does she spit up a lot?

    with a lot of patience! You can try swaddling and a baby soother which plays a variety of sounds like music or nature sounds. Ours projects pictures on the ceiling. We got it at wal-mart and it's made by V-tech. Each night, when your baby is tired but not sleeping yet, swaddle him/her and offer a pacifier. New research shows that a pacifier can actually reduce the risk of SIDS. It will take a little time, but your little one will adjust. Our 3 month old now sleeps better in her crib than with us!
