The Wonder Weeks, Product Overview
Imagine, they’ve been so used to your womb which is their safe haven. Then suddenly, things are so different in the outside world.
You probably keep hearing from other parents that babies grow up fast. Well, they really do. As they continue to grow, they progress in their mental and physical development. And since it’s all drastically new to them, they need your help to deal with all the changes.
This worldwide best-seller reveals what’s going on your baby’s mind. They cry and are fussy for a reason. So don’t automatically think that you are doing something wrong.
They are going through growth spurts or developmental leaps which mean progress. During this period, their behaviour is marked by 3 C’s: Crying, Cranky, and Clingy.
Improve your self-confidence and know that you are not alone.
This book allows you to learn more about the struggles of other mothers when their babies were the same age as yours. It’s perfect because not everyone will be so lucky to have playgroups or forums where you can hear from other mothers who are going through what you are going through at that point.
We would all have different experiences, and you will hear different perspectives and advise. Only to realise eventually that when it comes to your baby, you are the expert. You know them best!
Track your baby’s development and find out what to expect next.
I really love that you can track actual dates and know when the stormy and sunny periods will be. I’ve proven this so helpful in predicting when my baby will be fussy, and when she will be so easy to take care of.
The week-by-week guide can help you see things from your baby’s perspective and understand what kind of support they need.
It gives you a glimpse of what to expect and what signs your baby will show. There is an app that you can download through your mobile device or tablet. While that may already be enough for some, you will find much more details about each leap in the book.
Forget about crying spells and have fun with your baby during their leaps.
Taking care of a baby can really be daunting and exhausting. And sometimes, you can’t help it but you know what, you can take comfort in knowing that there are games and activities you can do.
The Wonder Weeks will not tell you how to be a good parent. Instead you will know when your baby will be so fussy and unsettled, and not leave you feeling so helpless. You will learn from the experiences of other moms.
In conclusion, I HIGHLY recommend this book. This saved my sanity. I knew what to expect and what to do. Sometimes I would feel bad if my baby is not yet demonstrating certain skills and interests. But it would always remind me that a baby never does it all at once. So go ahead and download the app in your mobile device and read the book. It might help to put a smile on your face.
