Publisher Description

The Wonder Weeks: How to stimulate your baby's mental development and help him turn his 10 predictable, great, fussy phases into magical leaps forward describes in easy-to-understand terms the incredible developmental changes that all babies go through during the first 20 months of their lives.

Age-related fluctuations and the need for body contact and attention are all related to major and quite dramatic changes in the brains of children. These changes enable a baby to enter a whole new perceptual world and, as a consequence, to learn many new skills.

Wonder week by wonder week you'll discover the dates in the first 20 months when all babies take ten major development leaps. Learn how to encourage each leap forward. Help your baby with the three Cs of fussy behavior: Cranky, Clingy and Crying. Recognize the on-set of stressful times and join your children in coping with them.

Author Biography

Plooij developed a parental guidance course called Leaping Hurdles that has shown to have positive effects on both parents and babies.

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
