New mom here! I have a 2 month old who recently quit napping for longer than 20 mins, any tips?

Her room is dark, I play sound machine, she sleeps through the night which is great but refuses to nap much during day.

    Is she upset? Perhaps teething or digestion issue? Try exposing her to sunlight even through a window my son used to fall asleep in his swing in front of the window. What if you put her in a carrier maybe she wants skin to skin to soothe

    They go through a stage. My LO is 3 months old and he didn’t wanna nap through out the day. But I would put him on his mat or do tummy time and just let him wear himself out and then I’d feed him, rock him and play music and he’d knock right out.

    I ended using a probiotic and massaged his tummy to help him poo. He would go up to 7-10 days without going sometimes. Massaging helped tummy time too I don’t like the idea of juice to early it has too much sugar....

    Your baby might be going through a growth spurt possibly, so that may be causing the lack of napping. I went through the same thing when my son was two months old and then again either a month or two after that and it was because he was going through a grow spurt. So depending on how long he hasn’t been napping for I would give it about a week or so.
