He'll grow out of it
I found swaddling great for calming mine down.

Keep going we swaddled - and when they get older you can swaddle another way so they have their arms free - if needed.

We swaddling until 4 months I think, then took arms aout and then transferred to grobag. All went well. Wont harm him at all, and if he finds it soothing then you are doing the right thing.
