O.O at the rude chicks up in this post.
You're not a bad mommy by any means. The sling thing is a good idea, plus, don't be afraid to let him cry for a few minutes if you need to get something done. He will learn that way.
Maybe he is just super high maintenance... Watch out for the ADHD thing though, Dr.s are medication happy now-a-days. Make sure you get several opinions!
Good luck :)

Thank you soo much! :D
Sounds like my son wow...he is almost 6 months and very high needs....he has days where he plays great and others that he will NOT let me put him down....invest in a moby wrap its the best money I have ever spent I swear. My son also loves to look at trees so when he wont stop screaming its out for a walk we go. I hear it gets better when they can crawl ...im hoping so I love to cuddle my boy but it is hard to get everything done trust me I understand. Best of luck....just think this too shall pass

thank you :) some days are great and some are just awful, I think it will pass eventually though ;)
He's a freaking BABY. He wants YOU, and that's what you signed up for when you became a parent. Welcome to motherhood. Take him for walks, play with him, you know, things a mom would do with their child. Sounds like he's bored because you're not that interested in playing with him..."
these are the words of a woman who has no clue about dealing with a high needs baby my daughter is at breaking point, the most loving mother you could imagine wanting to give her son the best possible experience - you are ignorant and unless you have been through it you cannot understand. it is 24/7 a child who wants CONSTANT interaction and fun fun fun...she is emotionally and physically drained after five months of this, there seems no way out as leaving the baby to scream is not something she can endure but no human being can deliver single handedly what this child demands. Oh he's a happy baby, full of smiles and love with not a thing wrong with him but he must have it - the up times - all the time. he sleeps a couple of hours out of 24 it really is unbelievable. she is going to sleep clinic soon she has had next to no sleep for weeks and cries in despair. So suck up your useless rubbish which is unhelpful.
and btw bizzybee did you even read the op properly? and actually think about what that mother was saying she was experiencing before your brainless sanctimonious response? try it and maybe you can come up with something more useful next time !

Bahahahahah... Im sorry but at 5 months old the kid does not have ADHD. And yes I know about special needs. I have add, my brother has the same, my ex has bipolar and adhd.. THIS IS NOT ADHD.
Ok yall, this topic was posted weeks ago, time to get over it I think. I would hope that you would have other things to do except argue about old topics on bg...Its called a life..get one and also get the stick (or branch) out of your asses, you are NOT better than everyone else. Thanks to the moms who weren't useless and complete b***hes. To the rest of you, I dont appreciate all of the rude ass comments. I asked for advice, not to be put down. So once again, pull the stick out of your ass and get over it. This is the last time I even look at this topic, I have more important things to do. Thanks.
"YOUR MOTHER brought it up again, apparently!Tell her you want the dead threads to be dead if you don't want them brought up again."
I am not her mother....!!! LOL that is your assumption. I just saw your post and know what my** actual daughter** ( we live in Australia) is going through which is the same thing and your post infuriated me. And I'm sorry but a baby who's wired all the time does feel like an unnatural phenomenon and does cause carers to wonder about things like ADD. Your post was rude and insensitive no matter how you cut it.
@Bizzybee "I was a wreck until I bought her some toys"
wow what a post!! i posted a similar post about my 3 month old son and i did not get a reaction like that:shock:
my son needs constant interaction as well, im sure its not colic maybe teething??. i look at other mothers and there baby is so quiet, mine may sit there for a good 15 - 20 min then gets upset or fussy,i do all the usual things to pin point whats wrong but sometimes its not good enough:( I hope it gets better for you .......... hope it does for me tooo.
@Sarah people who have not actually been through this don't get it - they talk about buying some toys and playing more with the child as if these things have NOT BEEN TRIED ALREADY, they have no idea what we're dealing with
....we're buying Dr Sears book on high needs babies and hope it can help us
good luck with your little one
