My baby won't sleep at night unless I hold him!

My baby is only 3 weeks old and sleeps wonderfully on his own during the day - but as soon as the sun goes down he turns into a little stinker! He won't stay asleep in anything i put him down in. I've tried swaddling, nursing, rocking, soothing - but nothing works unless he's in my arms! Is this just the norm and he'll grow out of it or is there something else I can try?

My son was like that for a while. I used pillows to surround him. One above his head, one to hold his feet up a little, and one on both sides. But if that doesn't work try getting one of your shirts tht has your everyday smell on it and set it somewhere close. Usually they just want to know your close by.
