Reviews

One of our personal favorites...[a] comprehensive guide to baby's development during the first 20 months...
Fantastic tips on how to help baby reach his potential during and after [the wonder weeks].
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.
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.
