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) --Ce texte fait référence à l'édition Broché .

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 ...

so, I'm giving it a four for the good info... but advise you to save your money and get the app instead.
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.
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.
The structure of the Week's issues, signs, and solutions are poorly laid out.
Then finally there's the downright no-value advice like, "do what you child likes best." No Sh** Sherlock.
And follow ups to "How Can You Tell What She Likes Best?" with "Your baby will smiles when given the things she enjoys most."
Luckily I got a refund through Amazon's Kindle 7 day return policy.
