Product Description

Review

"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.

“The Wonder Weeks: One of our own personal favorites!” The Bump editors

Featured in AWHONN magazine Healthy Mom & Baby:
“Breakthrough science reveals the true reasons of fussiness and weeks of wonders”

“I had no clue about The Wonder Weeks with my first daughter. Having this knowledge now has saved my sanity! Mental leaps aren’t always the easiest for both baby and parent, but I’m armed with the tools to help my daughter through these changes, and it helps to quell my mind as to what could be causing her so much fuss. It’s normal. “Babyzone, courtesy of Disney

“A must for every parent.” Washington Times

“Finally figured out one phase of the baby’s developments to be blind-sided by an entirely new one? This book will get you through those transition times” Examiner.com

This is a great book that helps new parents get a grasp on what to expect in the growth of their newborn. E.g., Why has my baby been so fussy and screamy this week? Oh, week 7 appears to be a transition period where they become more aware of things.

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.

Loving the book. I had the app but the book is a really up, you have more here than the app.
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.

I love this book! I gave bought a copy for myself and for my cousin who has a baby 6 weeks younger than my son. For each leap in mental development this book really gives insight as to what the baby is going through, and it really makes it easier to get through those fussy periods. It also has suggestions for games to play at each stage and other ideas to help your baby learn and grow. Recommended for all new parents.

Thank goodness for this book. I don't usually hold with theories of child development, but every time my baby hits one of these weeks it's as though he read the relevant chapter so he'd know what to do.
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.

It's too bad that not many parents know about the wonder weeks. Knowing about this (and the growth weeks) has helped my husband and me sooooo much! We are now able to understand why our sweet baby might be fussy and how to help her develop and feel happier. The book is very easy to understand and I really appreciate the ideas and suggestions they give you. I am very happy to have found out about it and to have purchased the book.

This book is amazing! I just purchased the book and my son is currently going through his 12 week leap. I do admit I have been much more patient with him because I knew what to expect ahead of time and I know why it is happening. I feel like this book has helped me become a more patient mother. I also love adding the play time suggestions they have for this leap as well. He loves almost all of them. I definitely will be gifting this book at every baby shower!

I love this book! I recommend it any parent to check out. It's truly fascinating and accurate. Before Wonder Weeks, I thought my son was teething and in pain so I was giving him infant Tylenol to soothe him and wondering why the tooth wasn't coming ... Turns out he was cranky due to a leap! Now when he gets cranky I rush to the book to see if he is due for a leap before checking his mouth! I appreciate this book and all the dedicated research and time it took to make this book! It has forever changed the way I look at my baby and parent him!

This book is very insightful about my baby's development. If I did not purchase this book I may be more fustrasted with some of my babies fussiness. It also has many suggestions on activities that I find helpful. Very easy and fun to read.
