do you have any suggestions for a 2 month old that won't take more than a handful of 20min cat naps during the day???? ?We have tried everything...swing, vibrating chair, crib, laying on top of me....
are you trying to get him to nap every 90mins-2hrs? he may be too tired to sleep if he's awake for more than 2 hrs
if you are already trying that, he is just a cat-napper. DD was a 30-min napper, exactly 30 mins, not 29, not 31. drove me crazy!
Our son slept much longer when he was swaddled. I agree with PP about making sure he's not awake for more than an hour or two before you start measures to get him to sleep. Also, IIRC at that age my son's naps weren't that regular, but he would sleep easily in his sling when I carried him that way. Around 3 months, I started to notice I could get him to sleep more easily, longer, and more regularly by putting him in the swing or vibrating chair.
The book Healthy Sleep Habits Happy Child is one I highly recommend. The writing style is kind of scatter brained, but there is definitely a lot of great info in there. The Happiest Baby on the block is another one that was immensely helpful in those early months (there is also a video).
