Have you tried gas drops? Or asked your sister what she does for gas?

Is she ff? It could be the formula of so. Try gas drops or gripe water and maybe suggest different formulas. If she's bf maybe mom is eating something her belly can't handle.

I know she does get gas at home the last couple days.  I told my SIL about gas drops, & she said she'd talk to her ped about them.
She doesnt know what to do for the gas either. This is her first baby.
The baby if formula fed & breastfed.
I tried calling my SIL to see if she would be ok with me giving her gas drops, but she isnt answering her phone, she went on the mountain with her DF

Can you give the baby a bath and massage her belly with the warm water? It sounds like she may be having issues with the formula or mom is eating something that's causing gas. Good luck

As I understand it, gas shouldn't/doesn't cause them lots of pain - baby may be lactose intolerant? If so, there's formula for that and BF is ok if mom avoids dairy.
