Can I change my baby from "other dependent credit" to "child tax credit"?

TurboTax keeps selecting "other dependents" for my child who was born last year. I would like to receive the child tax credit instead (for which I should be eligible otherwise)

Did you enter your child's Social Security number?

Did you say the child lived with you for more than half of the year?

Or....if the child was born in 2020 did you correctly choose that the child lived with you the WHOLE year---which is what you need to say for a newborn?

Was your child UNDER the age of 17 at the end of 2020?

probably the most crucial item for a child born in 2020 is that you indicate they lived with you all year
