How to cure/discipline a frequently crying baby?

I have a 11 month old daughter. Lately, her favourite hobby has become crying. If anything is not to her liking, her first response is to start crying and continue crying till she is either given what she wants or is picked up and hugged and comforted. She has also become very demanding on her mother's time. If... show more I have a 11 month old daughter. Lately, her favourite hobby has become crying. If anything is not to her liking, her first response is to start crying and continue crying till she is either given what she wants or is picked up and hugged and comforted. She has also become very demanding on her mother's time. If her mother leaves her alone even for a few seconds, she starts crying. If we try to make her do anything that we want, she starts crying. Another problem is that, if she cries loudly for even 30 seconds, there is a very high possibility that she will vomit out whatever she has eaten in the previous hour or so. That also has us on tenterhooks all the time. If we go out, making her sit on the carseat is another major worry. We can't do anything when we want to and the way we want to. We get no time to ourselves. Seems like she is totally dictating our day to day life. Everything has to be done according to her whims and fancies. Any guidance/suggestions would be much appreciated.
