My 4 mo is ONLY happy when he is in my arms being held. I bought a swing for him---he hates it and cries after 5 minutes. I have bought movies for him to keep his attention and he cries from being put in the swing. Yesterday I bought a jumperoo for him since he loves to jump up and down I thought I finally found something that would keep his attention so that I can get things done. WRONG. After 2 minutes hes screaming and only stops when I pick him up and hold him. I cant be holding him all the time. I NEED HELP!! =(Answer Question

Sounds like you have a baby that just likes to be held. My ODS was that way. We couldn't put him down at all. It does go away.
Once he started crawling, he didn't want to be held so much. If you have a carrier, use it or invest in one (I have the Eden Mei tai carrier that is good for baby's back and easy to use, one's like Baby Bjorn can cause back probs and cut off circulation in the legs).
It will keep him calm and you can get the things done that you need too.
