A child born in 2021 cannot be entered as a dependent on a 2020 tax return.  You can add her as a dependent on the 2021 tax return to be filed next year.

The IRS will be updating their portal sometime this year so that you can add a child born in 2021 for the Advance Child Tax Credit.  Go to this IRS website (Manage Payments) - https://www.irs.gov/credits-deductions/advance-child-tax-credit-payments-in-2021
