Is it compulsory for my neighbours’ 6 month old baby to be quiet?

Compulsory - no. Some babies are quiet and some are noisy.

What kind of a stupid question is that? You can't tell a baby to be quiet. It doesn't work that way.

A long-standing question: going back to Common Law, everyone is entitled to the quiet and peaceful enjoyment of their home . . .whether or not there are local quiet laws, Common Law prevails. HOWEVER: a person in a single home at a reasonable distance from other homes has an enforceable right to peace and quiet. But a person who has chosen to live in a high-density apartment house, or a crowded neighborhood of young couples with many children, cannot expect the same level of quiet as on a country estate, ie if there are lawns in the neighborhood you must accept that they will be cut - - - but they shouldn't be cut at midnight, etc.

The general rule is '90 til 9' which is ninety decibels of noise, (from any source), up until 9 PM. Added to this are other ordinances like a dog may only bark 35 times in a row without the barking being considered 'disturbance of the peace' and the owner warned or fined for not controlling the animal.
You should also do your due diligence, since GOD has created things like ear buds and music, sound proofing and other things. If you CHOOSE to listen to a baby crying and it annoys you, you are at least partially responsible. You might even consider helping out with some advice. It has got to be annoying to the mother as well and she is much closer to the source.

No, of course not.
