It would be best to first take him to the paediatrician to understand if there are any physical or health issues that can be spotted. Babies usually tend to get bored very quickly, so maybe that could be the reason for not being able to sit in one place. Every time he cries and he is picked up instantly, so he also learns that when he cries he gets what he wants. Therefore it is important to at times let him cry when you know that he is safe and there is no other reason for him to cry. You may need to train him. But it should not be harsh training and it should not cause too much discomfort to the child. When the child starts crying, distract him, give him some toys, hug him. You can also just test to see if he will calm down by himself if you let him cry for a little while maybe 3 to 4 min (considering that you have checked that there is no other reason or discomfort that is making the child cry)
