We swaddle Toren most of the time when we put him down to sleep.  It seems to really keep him calm.  If we don’t, he has a tendency to flail his arms and legs, waking himself up.  I walked into his room the other day to find him like this:

My Mom has already told me to stop comparing Toren to aliens, as he’s much cuter than they are (she’s right, of course), but I couldn’t help thinking that he looked like Darth Vader unmasked:

So, clearly he isn’t as pasty white nor does he have the scars, but that’s what I thought when I saw him.  Maybe it’s the bald, rounded head?

And of course there is the issue of whether the human-like characters in Star Wars are actually humans or aliens.  Since I’m not a Star Wars buff (Star Trek all the way, baby!), I’m not going to comment only to say that this is at least a comparison with a clearly human-like alien this time.  Sorry Mom!
