  • Invest in a sling.

    He wants to be close to you, you need your hands free - win win.

  • sling if you can handle it...or just but him in his swing/bouncy seat. it won't kill him to cry for 4 minutes while you do something that needs to get done

  • I got a Maya sling from e-Bay. It was wonderful! I used it until my baby was almost three. He was a crier and now he is a happy, positive little boy. I hope this helps.

  • I agree with the other moms, find a way to hold him all day :-) Slings are great! You can get a lot done with a baby in a sling. Also, figure out what really can wait (the dishes can wait, the laundry can pile up a bit, you can vacuum less etc.)

  • let him cry it out. it sounds cruel but its the best thing for him. my son was like that and this is the advice my mom gave me and now when i put him down he is fine. you cant just carry your baby around all day. how will he learn to crawl, walk, ect? you dont wanna be carrying your 4 year old around in a sling.
