"This is a very practical and entertaining window into the baby's first year and a half. van de Rijt and Plooij have observed and found the vulnerable times in an infant's development that I independently came to in my book Touchpoints (Perseus). The authors' observations and practical suggestions are wonderful." T. Berry Brazelton, M.D., professor emeritus, Harvard Medical School.
"Anyone who deals with infants and young children will want to read 'The Wonder Weeks.' This book will open parents' eyes to aspects of their children's growth, development, changing behavior, and emotional responsiveness that they might otherwise not notice or find puzzling and distressing." Catherine Snow, Ph.D., Shattuck Professor of Education, Harvard Graduate School of Education.

It's somewhat reassuring to read and gives lots of info to consider with checklists you can use. Would recommend!
Some of the anecdotes are annoying since a) anecdotes don't mean anything in the context of your child (it's just one example of what one parent found in their kid) so who cares; and b) there's a lot of them.
I don't agree with all the comments that said the book is just parents comments. It has a lot their research experience, that for me as a physiotherapist is really important. I love read the why something happen not just the results.
Honestly, the best part of the book are the quotes from real moms...who seem to have the same emotions I do...which make me feel much more normal. Love it.
