Side Sleeping?

I had my little one over a week ago and I'm having some issues with his sleeping. He would only sleep if we were holding him or if he was close to us so I bought a sleeper for our bed. It works but he loves to sleep on his side in it.  He wiggles his way to the side of the sleeper and falls asleep like that. I tried swaddling but he hates it. 

I was thinking of rolling up a blanket behind him to keep him in place or placing something under the sleeper mattress to keep him elevated. Is this a terrible idea? I know newborns should be on their backs but he's not happy sleeping like that.
