I can't put my baby down for a second without him screaming. I know he's okay but I can't stand the sound of him crying so I always pick him up. Any suggestions on how to break this behavior.

You need to try and stop picking him up. If he is on the floor, get down with him and do something to distract him. Show him that you're not far away and talk to him calmly.
He has learned that if he cries you pick him up so the only way to break it is to stop picking him up.
