My 7week old LO only wants to be held. I've tried the swing & bouncy seat he hates both. Car seat only when we are going someplace. Hes just starting to get used to a carrier but for a short time. I can't put him down for naps & I've tried swaddling him too. He always just wakes up & will then start to cry. Not sure what to do need advice. I know when I go back to work no one will hold him all day. Help!!

Well he IS only 7 weeks. Both of my daughters were the same way. Don't worry he will grow out of it, but right now he needs you.

He's still itty... Have you tried wearing him? Sometimes you just have to do what they need.. And remember crying is ok.. He's breathing! You are both still trying to figure each other out, and eventually there will be a day where you miss those naps on your chest...

My kids were both like that also, especially my daughter. I still need to rock her to sleep and she is 2. The age your baby is at right now it is completely normal though. Sorry, no real advice. Best of luck. Maybe one tip, get a front carrier baby bjorn.
