Getting 6 week old to sleep...

My 6 week old is a great sleeper. Only trouble is actually getting him to sleep. We have tried swaddling, rocking him to sleep, making sure he has a full belly ect. His preference seems to be either sleeping on myself or my husband and from there we can only get him to stay asleep in his carseat. Forget using a crib, bassinet, or pack n play. I didn't have this issue with my oldest and I am stumped. I feel like we have tried everything possible and I am out of ideas. Any suggestions would be helpful. Thanks.

Yours sounds like my 8 week old! She did the exact same thing from birth. We finally got her to sleep in her bassinet though when we covered her with a thick baby blanket. It kept her nice and warm like our body heat did.
