Have you tried swaddling him like you did when he was a newborn? He might just need the sensation of something cradling him as opposed to specifically someone holding him. If he has good neck control, you could try putting a mattress pad under the fitted bassinet sheet to make it more comfortable. Don't put any pillows or bumper pads in the bassinet though because of SIDS. Also, I used a little foam block designed to keep baby on his side all night, which my son loved. It provided that cozy environment, but was not a safety hazard. Check out ideas from your pediatrician too.
