I’d heard about this great baby development app, The Wonder Weeks, from a few parents. I’m annoyed I didn’t get around to uploading it to my phone until recently because it’s really useful. Welcome to the Wonder Weeks …
Ever wondered why your baby goes through random periods of crankiness & fussiness? Teething, illness, not getting enough sleep & growth spurts are frequently blamed. But there is a different theory.
According to The Wonder Weeks, your baby goes through 10 significant developmental stages within the first 20 months of their life. Each of these ‘mental leaps’ has an impact on their behaviour as they adjust to their new way of being.
The Wonder Weeks book & app predicts, with uncanny accuracy, when your baby will go through a developmental stage, what kind of behaviours you can expect and what you can do to help your baby adjust to their new skills.
The nice thing about the Wonder Weeks is that it also explains the incredible brain developments your baby goes through, so you can identify your baby’s clever new tricks rather than getting overwhelmed by the behaviour challenges (which is easy to do – we are going through some Wonder Weeks now!).
It’s also great because you know when your baby is likely to return to a settled period.
The Wonder Weeks app will set you back $1.99 USD, it’s available for Apple, Android & Windows. You can find out more at Wonder Weeks online www.thewonderweeks.com
