Help! 2 month old won’t take naps!

Anyone have any advice to help my 2 month old take naps during the day. Some days he will sleep most of the day and other days I’m lucky if he takes an hour nap all day long until bedtime.

Create a structured routine, feed, burp, change, play/sing, read. Its still pretty early but it will happen. Each baby is unique and will adjust on there own speed. You are doing great!!

It does get better. I stuck to a strict nap/sleep schedule and let mine cry it out for few mins til he got use to it and then I had everyone commenting on how good and easy he was to get down. It took patience at first. Lots of it. But we eventually got it down. Look up sleep hygiene. My pediatrician recommended it to us.

Maybe he is overstimulated? Have you tried using gripe water? There is a great medicine pacifier to administer it to him by frida baby. Gripe water is safe to use up to 6 times per day too! Changed my babies mood and was a life saver for me! Is he sleeping through the night at least?

Never heard of gripe water? He sleeps at 8 pm and then up every 3-4 hrs during the night. But I think it was a growth spurt! He is taking 2-3 1 hour naps now!🙏🏻

My 3 month old is the same way. Some days she’s sleeps like an angel. And the others it’s like she forgets what sleep even is! Those are the days where I go out for a drive or walk around a store or something. She has gotten a little better and I tho k it’s because I have a pretty good routine with her. But some days it just doesn’t work.

She will be fussy. Unless I take a car ride or go to the store. Then she is either wide awake looking around or asleep. There has been a couple days lately where that want even work and she’ll still cry the whole time. Drives me crazy!

Does she get fussy when she won’t nap?? Or is she just wide awake and curious??
