Can't get baby to sleep

My daughter is 7 weeks old and still sleeps most of the day then when it comes to night, I have a hard time to get her to sleep. I'll nurse her, burp her and lie her down and she wakes up. I'll try leaving her and rocking her rock n play(where she sleeps) but she wants to be held. This will go on awhile. Then once I get her to stay asleep she will wake up anywhere from one hour to four hours later and repeat the same process. I've tried swaddling her but she hates her arms swaddled so I end up swaddling with arms out. I'm not ready to just let her cry it out, I think she is too little.

Even at this age babies are going to sleep when they want to not when you want them too. 7 weeks is still very young. You need to learn to take what sleep you can when she is napping during the day.
