This might be crazy, but you might just let out the seams in the bottom. Then, if his arms are also too big, cut down into the armpit. May not work if it's very cold though....

We swaddled until almost 6 mos., if that helps. I read that babies outgrow the startle reflex by 6 mos., which is what needs to happen to stop putting arms in the swaddle. You could try swaddling with a blanket that you already have, and then putting him ( swaddled) in the larger sleep sack.

Make sure his hips can pull up into froggy position anytime you swaddle! Babies swaddled with straight legs can have hip problems.
