Bought the baby a crib instead of her bassinet and the pediatrician told me she'll have to cry until she gets used to it. She never cries, but when I put her in her crib she screams bloody murder :( Is there another way I can get her used to it??

She is going to have to go through a transition period but you can make it be less stressful. You must have a sleep time routine by now, I assume. Keep it the same every time she is tired. Whether it is a bath at night, diaper change, swaddling, lights out, drapes pulled, soft music on or singing, cuddling/rocking/swaying. When she's drowsy lay her down. If done in the same manner, all the time, the baby picks up on the cues and knows it's time for sleeping. It might be rough for the first few times but she will adjust.

Where has your baby slept until now? There are safe ways to co sleep. I'm sorry your friend lost her baby. The uncle was probably not used to sleeping with a baby.
Here are some links on safe cosleeping:
I hope this helps!
