Help please :)

My 11 week old son is a great happy baby he is just stubborn when it comes to sleeping. Since birth I have swaddled him. It started out because of wild arms and uncontrollable reflexes. He has toned that down a lot but he now paws and scratches at his face until his awake so I swaddle him still. He hates the swaddle and will struggle in his sleep until he is out and wont sleep well because of that! Help any new ideas advice whatever????

I would be desperately claustrophobic to be swaddled.  Socks on his hands so he won't scratch himself?

True I agree. I have heard that its a comfort like they are in the womb but he is a lil too old. I just want his sleep to get solid and worked out

he might feel smothered, like one mommy said, put socks on his hands, or the make those hand mittens for babies that you could put on. try that maybe he will calm down and sleep better for you. good luck :)
