How do you entertain a 4 month old?

How do you keep a 4 month old entertained or occupied so you can get stuff done around the house. My son is 4 months old and if I’m not carrying him, holding him or playing w/ him or taking him out somewhere, he is not happy. (literally screaming/crying) I love my son and love to do things with him (we go for walks, play, go out to the mall (he loves to be out) or just sit and read and talk to him. However, I have not been able to get my housework done for a couple of months(since he stopped sleeping so much). My house is a wreck and I don’t know what to do. I’ve tried putting him in the bouncy chair in front of baby einstein DVD, but that lasts 10 min. Also tried the swing and that doesn’t last long. I would love to put him down on the floor on his activity gym, but our house is all tile floors and I don’t feel comfortable. (I keep the activity gym on the bed and he only lays on it while supervised.) PLEASE, any advice is welcome. I’ve got to get some stuff done!

    coming from having 6 younger brothers, you have to learn to let them cry. Everytime your baby wails, let him for a few minutes. Its like when he or she is sleeping and they start to cry. You don’t go in there right a way. You let them cry a little first. Start seperating yourself a litte, a bond is important , but so is the time the mother gets to herself. Or your kid could have anxiety and seperation issues, and would never want to leave your side. That same thing happend with my neigbor. The kid is 3 now, and he wont talk to anyone else, he wont go outside, he has to be near his mom all the time, and his bed is actually in their room. Honestly, though. Just keep a little bit of distance between the 2 of you.
