Présentation de l'éditeur

"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 and regression periods that all babies go through during the first 20 months of their lives.
The extended, white cover edition describes 2 more leaps in the mental development of your baby up to the end of the sensorimotor period.

The book offers guidance how to ...:

• Know when and why your baby is fussy

• Help him/her (and yourself!) get through / survive the fussy phases

• Get the most out of these developmental phases

The book is based on the scientific- and parental-world-changing discovery of a phenomenon: all normal, healthy babies appear to be more fussy at very nearly the same ages, regression periods, and sleep less in these phases.

A worldwide bestseller and sanity savior for parents around the globe.

These age-related fluctuations in need for body contact and attention (regression periods) are related to major and quite dramatic changes in the brains of the children. These changes enable a baby to enter a whole new perceptual world and, as a consequence, to learn many new skills. This should be a reason for celebration, but as far as the baby is concerned these changes are bewildering. He's taken aback -- everything has changed overnight. It is as if he has woken up on a strange planet.

The book includes:

• Week-by-week guide to baby's behavior

• When to expect the fussy behavior, what this implies (cranky, clingy, crying (the three C's) behavior) and how to deal with these regression periods (leaps)

• A description from your baby's perspective of the world around him and how you can understand the changes he's going through

• Fun games and gentle activities you can do with your child

Expert reviews:
---“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).
---“van de Rijt and Plooij’s work on infant development has enormous value for clinical use and scientific application. Not only have they explained the periods of puzzling, difficult behavior in infancy which so worry parents, they have also shown how these behaviors mark developmental leaps and have described the stages in the infant’s understanding. Together, this gives parents and professionals soundly based insight into babies’ developing minds. What’s more, van de Rijt and Plooij have described the play and communication that work best with babies at different ages and thus helped parents understand and connect sensitively with their babies. This parent-child connection is the major prerequisite for the development of secure, well-adjusted children. 'The Wonder Weeks' is essential reading for everyone who works with infants: pediatricians, social workers, psychologists, and, of course, parents.” (John Richer, Ph.D., Dip. Clin. Psychol., consultant clinical psychologist and Head of Pediatric Psychology, Department of Pediatrics, John Radcliffe Hospital, Oxford, England

Biographie de l'auteur

Born in 1944, Hetty van de Rijt studied Educational Psychology at the University of Nijmegen, the Netherlands and she worked in an institute for the mentally handicapped. She obtained her Ph.D. in Physical Anthropology at the University of Cambridge, England in 1982. Born in 1946, her husband Frans X. Plooij studied behavioural biology in the Netherlands in Amsterdam, Nijmegen, and Groningen, where he received his Ph.D. in 1980. Together they studied infant development in free-living chimpanzees with Dr. Jane Goodall in the Gombe National Park, Tanzania, East Africa from 1971-1973. Consequently, from 1973 to 1976, they studied with Prof. Robert Hinde in the Medical Research Council unit on the Development and Integration of Behaviour, University of Cambridge, England. In 1976 their daughter Xaviera was born. From 1976-80 Frans worked at the department of Developmental Psychology, University of Nijmegen, the Netherlands, filming and observing babies in their home environment. From 1981 to 1993 he was head of the department of Research and Development at the institute for Child Studies of the City of Amsterdam, the Netherlands, where, among other things, he worked on the implementation of an innovative second- and foreign-language teaching method for preschool children. From 1993 to 1998, he was a professor at the Department of Developmental and Experimental Clinical Psychology, University of Groningen. Currently, Dr. Plooij is director of the International Research-institute on Infant Studies (IRIS) at Arnhem, and president of Kiddy World Promotions B.V., a consulting firm that serves companies producing products related to children, such as toys. He is a full member of several international, scientific societies including the New York Academy of Sciences. In addition to numerous scientific publications, Dr. Plooij has written several bestselling parenting books. As a post-doc at the University of Amsterdam, the Netherlands from 1986 to 1990, Dr. van de Rijt studied the development of human babies in their home environment. As lead author with her husband as co-author, she wrote the best-selling parenting book The Wonder Weeks, which has been published in twelve languages, from the USA to Japan. She designed a parental support and education program called "Leaping hurdles," based on the Wonder Weeks and published a scientific evaluation study to report on the effects of this program. She died far too young at the age of 59.

Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
Ce livre est vraiment intéressant car il permet de réaliser les différentes étapes de son bambin, de l'accompagner dans ces nouveaux horizons de développement célébral. Le parent peut vivre aux côtés de son bébé ces moments clés de crise, de déculpabiliser et savoir qu'au bout du tunnel le rayon de soleil brillera à nouveau ....
Personnellement, ce livre m'a appris à être plus présente pendant ces "leaps", à savoir le rassurer et à me mettre à son niveau. J'ai par ce biais été plus patiente dans les journées et les nuits quand mon bébé devenait crampon et de répondre à ses besoins de sécurités !!!!
Ce livre permet de réaliser que son bébé n'est pas qu'un petit glouton mais déjà une personne humaine fragile mais si fascinante ...

2.0 étoiles sur 5 This info does not need to be a book. 9 juillet 2013
Par A. Rivkin - Publié sur
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
Some of the information is right on and makes a lot of sense, but the older my baby gets the more off the weeks become. Every child's developmental milestones can be very unique and not on schedule. However, this book gives you a basic understanding of what to expect and when. The negative review is not of the info, but of the way the book is written. If you go to the site you can get all the information you need for free on the weeks and milestones. What this book adds is completely unnecessary and trivial mothers' quotes about their kids and what they went through. It's not educational at all, it's just anecdotal. The book will talk about babies learning that you and they are separate entities, for instance, and then it will start quoting random mothers who went through the separation issues with their babies. And they're not telling you solutions, they're just saying things like: One night Matthew starting screaming every couple hours. I realized that he just missed me and was scared that I wasn't with him. He did that for a couple weeks until he learned that I'm still somewhere near by. - Matthew's mother. This kind of stuff fills 75% of the book and to me is a complete waste of time to read. I'm a new mom, I need clean cut info, I don't have time for empty pages of random mothers' ramblings. I can go to a mommy group for that.

Par SoCalAvAZ - Publié sur
Out of the many baby books I've read this is hands down the most useful. The information is excellent and makes me wonder why it's not readily available (outside this book ie on websites). Wow, when read it it's like I got the AHA moment and a glimpse into my daughters brain.

Some have complained that the dates are off for their child. They give a range/approximation and as well one thing to consider is that you need calculate from your baby's due date. So parent's of preemies or late babies, keep this in mind.

What I really enjoyed was: (a) The activities listed that you can play with your baby during each stage to help them learn faster, and (b) the parents' experience which helped me realize that I'm not alone in how I feel.

I will say though if anyone is for the CRY IT OUT method they need to read this book. Even though this isn't a sleep book it gave me the insight to realize that I will never use the cry it out method when I know that my baby is going through a developmental phase and needs moms comfort and support more than ever; that would just be torture.

Have recommended this book to several friends who also loved it and will continue to recommend to new parent's as the one must read.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 great insights... but just get the app 21 octobre 2013
Par rachelenium - Publié sur
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
The information this book provides is very useful for parents curious about their child's development... but also for understanding what on earth s happening to your baby when the stormy periods come. I had the app already and so liked what they wee explaining I bought the book to get more detail... but It wasn't necessary. The app has everything you need on it in a sisynct format and text. The book is just longer; it doesn''t provide significant additional insight.

so, I'm giving it a four for the good info... but advise you to save your money and get the app instead.

1.0 étoiles sur 5 Really Wanted to Like this Book 21 octobre 2012
Par M - Publié sur
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
As a new mom kinda freaked out by my two month old's sudden cranky, clingy, crying phase, this book seemed perfect. As an avid reader (and a clinical psychologist -- who works with older kids, not 0-3 year olds) this book was poorly written and ... didn't put the research out there. I know many readers may not want a book that is very research heavy or jargony, but I think it is insulting to the reader to just say "we did the research" but never actually talk about it. [And this is European research that I don't hear US developmental psychologists talking much about... not too sure why.]

Okay, but here is the criticism that I think most readers would find helpful:

The book is WAY bigger than it needs to be and is very repetitious... They use similar sections for each "leap" (which makes sense), but the content just feels like it is a near cut and paste of the other leaps. I kept on wondering where is the "meat" or the useful information was. Also, this book should be interesting - and it wasn't.

The website has the helpful (reassuring!) information available for FREE! Go read the website. And take to heart that if you baby hits a weird, sudden clingy, crying, cranky spell he or she isn't necessarily sick and you aren't necessarily doing anything wrong.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Best Mental/Physical Baby Development Book 27 mars 2012
Par T. Riser - Publié sur
Format:Format Kindle
As a new parent, I heard about this book when having a discussion about infant sleep regressions. So, I bought the book - hard copy - when my child was 19wks old. It was an amazing read for me - so much research based data AND readable. The authors don't bog down the reading with research language, but make it easy to read for parents. Every week was right on the money in terms of mental & physical development of my child. I felt like I could predict the future of my child - developmentally - if I read ahead. I love that with each fussy period, the authors provide specific developmental milestones as well as activities/toys/games to help along the way. Sure, you can find generic baby milestones on a variety of websites, but this information answered my deeper questions. What does body control look like on a baby at 19wks old? How is my baby listening to me at 26wks old? And there is even a section in each chapter about how baby's changes will affect the parents. Smart stuff here. This is my favorite baby book regarding mental & physical development. The Wonder Weeks helped me be ready for the changes ahead with a lot less 1st time parent worry. I really enjoy helping my child grow because of this book.
