My baby's arms and legs flail and is agitated lying down-- sleeping is an issue: help!

Hi moms
My 2.5 month old beautiful son is having issues sleeping. We had a system dialed in to help him and but now it's not working,

His arms and legs flail a lot and it wakes him up. I have been swaddling him and it sometimes works but recently he has been busting out after 2-4 hours of sleep.

He also gets very agitated and gets congested if he lies flat on his back, so even tho I felt lots of hesitation about it, we moved him from the family bed to the rock n play. He did well in this for a couple weeks at night but now seems increasingly uncomfortable and is breaking out of the swaddle. We tried elevating one side of the co-sleeper but he won't sleep in it. His legs kick in the swaddle and he wakes himself up (which he couldn't do in the rock n play).

We don't know what to do and are really concerned as we know his sleep is so crucial, and we are also very tired.

Any thoughts/ideas/insight?

Thanks ladies!
