high needs son?

After doing some reading it seems that my 10week old son may be a "high needs baby". He's very active in his sleep, a very light sleeper (example:me tearing a paper towel off its roll will startle him), does not want to be put down at all (starting to like his swing, on good days), is always very upset and gets to that point in less than a second, nurses quickly but often (5-6 min)
So my question is, how in the world do I get this kiddo out of my arms and in his pack n play or crib for the night? And day! During his wake times he doesn't want to be put down at all. If I'm lucky I'll get 5 min. He isn't colicky, he just knows what he wants. He gets pissed if not held the way he wants. Anywho. Help?
