15 week old baby will only sleep on me

I am looking for suggestions please.

My 15 week old baby will only sleep on me or next to me in bed, he is ebf at the moment. I have a sling which I put him in when I need to get things done but I'm finding the nights very difficult, my husband is worried about co-sleeping and so we are in different beds, I have a snuzpod but baby just cries as soon as he is apart from me.
We also have a 6 year old who is struggling with the lack of access to me, to add to the problems my husband works nights.
My thoughts at the moment are to establish a bed time routine for baby and to try to get him into his snuzpod but I don't know how to do this! Has anyone got any suggestions please?

We tried shush-pat (baby whisperer) at around the same time frame with dd2. It was a long process and took nearly 2 hours a night in the evenings to get her to settle originally, but eventually she started to learn to self settle and the times got shorter.

Have you tried a swaddle and a dummy.

Both make for a deeper sleep so make transferring (ie putting baby down) easier.

I'd also recommend a bouncy chair for daytime naps. Bounce relentlessly until asleep
