So I'm supposed to start a work from home job today which is great I can be home with my kids, but my 2 mo will not let me put him down for even 5 sec! I can't get any work done. Even if he falls asleep he wakes up screaming as soon as I put him down! Help!!!!! I don't know what to do! We really need this money!!!

Did you try a carrier?.... Also if you put him down to keep him a sleep try running the vacuum cleaner! (That was my BFF when my so was little) it helped put him to sleep and also kept him sleeping!!! It was like magic lol

I personally had the same problem. What I have done is put my LO on the floor for tummy time or put her in her swing and it worked for a little bit or I would let her cry for a little bit. Sometimes she would find something that distracted her for a while.

Wait about 20 min after he falls asleep to put him down. Try swaddling him so he is snug and doesn't really feel when you put em down.

Have you tried any baby wearing? Maybe invest in a ring sling or woven wrap. Facebook/baby wearing 102 is a great group!

Sometimes it take a bit for the answers to show up. I would try wearing your 2 month old. I loved my Happy Baby Wrap (very similar to the Moby Wrap), and I've heard great things about the Ergo, as well.

I can't wear him because he would be in the way and he doesn't like it.

Wear him. Get a bjorn or similar. Target has a good Chico brand one for $40. I take my 2.5 month old to work with me and when hes awake and not in his rock n play or pack n play I wear him.
