Day sleeps difficulty

Hi all
Just seeking some advise on day sleeps for 7 week old. He will only sleep in my arms, once put in his bassinet he will cry and wake up, if he does fall asleep he will wake after one sleep cycle.
I have met all his needs during up time, play, feed, nappy change, burped etc. is it harmful to try CIO methods? I have tried getting him to sleep in his pram, he cries, music, shhing, using the rocker etc. only in my arms.
He weighs 5kgs now and I'm finding it very difficult to sustain. I love him very much but I'm sure there has to be another way, I know he wants to sleep.
He sleeps 2 lots of 4 -5 hours at night. Resettles independently at night.

Any advise is appreciatied.

Have you tried a swing or swaddling him with warm blankets? Sometimes the sound of the womb or heart beat helps as well. Babies like those sounds because that's what they are used to n they miss it once they're born.
Good luck, hope that helps :)
