Sleeping in swing?

I know that an Infant swing is not for sleeping in but my one week old baby screams in his bassinet and in his co-sleeper nest. During the day he loves his swing and so the past two nights I caved and slept on the couch next to him in the swing. My husband goes back to work tomorrow after a week off of paternity leave and so I have been trying to let him sleep. I was wondering if anyone else has resorted to letting their newborn sleep in a swing? I hope this doesn't go on for long, he sleeps most of thr day and is sooo fussy at night. He wakes every hour sometimes less and just cries. I'm a first time Mom and just don't know what to do. I am exhausted. Please don't judge me, I am just looking for other Moms to talk to.
