Sleep Advice for Premature Infant

My premature infant (18 weeks old, 8 weeks past due date) will only sleep in my husband and my arms or in the bed next to us. We try to put him down for naps, but he wakes up. The longest he will stay asleep is 30 minutes, although usually he wakes up right away. We have tried swaddling (he hates that) and the infant car seat.
