  • My son wanted to be held constantly at this age too. We finally figured out he mostly just wanted to see what was going on above his eye-level, mainly whenever I was in the kitchen (which felt/feels like all the time). So I started putting him in a high chair with good straps and support. Worked great!

  • Why don't you want to hold him and make him feel secure? Maybe a babypack would work for you.
