Fussy baby that always wants up. What is something that really helps? A sling or a bouncy/vibrating seat?

My daughter cries when ever I put her down. I am going crazy! I have let her cry but she cries a lot of the time. I'm not sure what to do. I have a regular front pack but I have heard that the slings are much better. We have a swing for her but she doesn't always like that. So do you think a sling or a bouncy seat would work? What did you do for your fussy baby? I have a 2 1/2 year old and I really need time that I can spend with her with out worrying about my youngest crying. She doesn't want other people. She will only sit with them or in her swing or bassinett for 20 or so mins before crying and wanting me again. Its not that shes hungery either. I don't know what to do. Please help.

  • Wow I feel like I just read something I wrote, my 6 month is the exact same way, I can't put her down or else she'll start crying its crazy. She loves to be raised in the air & bounced, but 24/7? How will anything ever get done?..
