My in-laws came for a visit, that's lasted 3 weeks! My son is only 5 weeks old, and all they wanted to do was hold him! Everytime he cired, even for a second, they are right there, grabbing him up and now... because he was NOT like this for the 2 weeks before they arrived... he doesn't want to be laid down at all!! He cries until he's so upset that he's sweating and it's horrible!! What can I do to fix this?!?!

Try swaddling him so he feels like he's being held. Also start to put him down to sleep when he's not asleep but drowsy. This will help him learn to self soothe.
