Alternative to Swaddling in Warm Weather

My 6 week-old sleeps well when swaddled (in blanket or Swaddleme wrap). The weather is getting warmer and we don't always turn on the air conditioning unless it gets very hot. I worry about him overheating if I swaddle him in the summer. But if I don't swaddle him, he keeps waking up from falling sensation. He just doesn't seem to know what to do with his arms and legs without the swaddle. Has anyone experienced this problem and found a solution? How can I help him sleep better without the swaddle?

Swaddling 3 1/2 Month Old

I've been swaddling my 3 1/2 month old in SwaddleMe blankets for naps and bedtime, and she's recently started breaking out of the swaddle at night, waking around 1 and 5 for night feedings. So, should I stop swaddling or move to a "heavy duty" swaddle blanket, like the Miracle Blanket, that she cannot break out of during the night? I would like to transition out of the swaddle soon, but I am afraid that she won't be able to fall asleep if I don't swaddle her at all. It really seems to calm her down. I'm not sure she would be able to fall...
