Product description

Review

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.
- <br \><br \> 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, MD, professor emeritus, Harvard Medical School<br \><br \> The Wonder Weeks is the newly-updated go-to guide for understanding your child s mental developmental milestones (referred to as leaps )....Understanding the real reason behind crying and eating and sleeping problems is the only real solution parents need, and take it from us you ll be glad to be in the know.
-
Pregnancy & Newborn<br \><br \> One of our personal favorites...[a] comprehensive guide to baby s development during the first 20 months...
-
The Bump<br \><br \> Reading The Wonder Weeks saved my sanity more than once during the times my baby got inexplicably fussy or refused to sleep. It's a must read for any new mom.
-
Popsugar.family<br \><br \> Armed with the insight of [The Wonder Weeks] I would have been more confident as a new parent... rather than anxious, about how my baby was experiencing the world
-
Rookie Moms<br \><br \> Fantastic tips on how to help baby reach his potential during and after [the wonder weeks].
-
The Cradle Coach --Catherine Snow, PhD, Shattuck Professor of Education, Harvard Graduate School of Education

Once I realized there was a reason and a positive reason, at that that my kid had suddenly turned terrible, it eased the pain of parenting through these times.

The book outlines when and why each wonder week happens; it also offers parents insights into how to help their babies navigate each wonder week, and turn it into a leap forward for baby.
