All I have heard of is trying to swaddle with limbs out more and more. It sounds like that is what you are trying to do. Do you have some sort of toy or item that plays music or sound? My LO loves his "colors", it's a toy that has moving figures and glows with alternating colors and plays music/rainforest noises. He get's distracted and watches that, and it has alternating volume levels. Maybe having a similar toy will help calm him down or distract him? Many people have had success with white noise emitters, so maybe that will help him stay asleep even if he comes out of his swaddle. I just stopped swaddling him one day, and later took away his binky too, and cry it out worked for us. He puts himself to sleep now. I would say to just forge ahead like you are doing, and maybe get some sort of toy/noise/color thing to distract him. Does he use a binky that may help soothe him?
