Is my 3.5 month old ready to stop being swaddled?

My baby is almost 4 months and breaks out of every swaddle I put him in. He is a large baby at over 18lbs. I have tried all different types of products but he is always able to get his hands up to his face. He always wants to suck on them. The problem is once they are up there he tends to wake himself up with them. The last two nights he has woken up almost every 2 hours! I need help! Should I just go ahead and make the transition to no swaddle so he can get used to his hands? Or is he too young? Any advice is so welcomed!

Im a little foggy with what I have read in the past but after a while you should stop swaddling because it can have an effect on bone growth or something along those lines. You can try a soother but a lot of parents also don't like them.
I let my second child suck on his hand.
