Here at Milky Mommas Inc., we LOVE The Wonder Weeks! Their best selling book is the closest thing to an instruction manual for newborn and toddler life, and the convenient smart phone app puts the information at your fingertips. The Wonder Weeks helps make sense of those previously mysterious fussy periods that every child goes through. Combining scientific research on human brain growth with practical tips for helping your child as they develop, The Wonder Weeks should have a place on the bookshelf of every new parent.
Just last month The Wonder Weeks released an updated version of their book with a brand new chapter all about baby sleep and mental leaps, and their team was kind enough to send us a copy for review. As if the book wasn’t already indispensable, this new information takes it to a new level.
In the new chapter, child development experts break down the affects of cognitive leaps on your baby’s brain and sleep patterns. There are tips and tricks for recognizing the stages of sleep, on how to know when to sneak away from a slumbering tot for some much needed coffee, and on what to expect as your baby develops through each stage.
It was so eye opening to read the book, especially this new chapter. My toddler is going through leap 10 right now (and cutting molars- please send coffee! 😂) and the book really helped me connect the dots of what she is going through, and showed me how I can help her. Maybe most important of all, The Wonder Weeks helped me adjust my expectations for life in leap weeks. It is so challenging to care for a little person with big needs and feelings, with little to no way to communicate her needs! The Wonder Weeks eases that confusion, and offers practical steps for helping your baby with each changing stage. The book explains what new skills she may be developing, and how each one could affect her sleep, behavior, and her view of the world. The Wonder Weeks’ Information has made life easier for the whole family! Realistic expectations of baby’s behavior and development is truly one of the keys to successful parenting.
