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 that all babies go through during the first 20 months of their lives. This is the extended, "fat" edition with 2 more chapters covering 2 more leaps in the mental development of your baby up to the end of the sensorimotor period. The book is based on the discovery of a little known phenomenon: all normal, healthy babies appear to be more tearful, troublesome, demanding and clingy at very nearly the same ages. These age-related fluctuations in need for body contact and attention 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.

I found this book invaluable when my children were babies. They weren't the best sleepers and other books that said 'by this age your baby should be sleeping through' left me feeling like a failure. 'The Wonder Weeks' gives great insight into what's happening in that growing baby brain and why sometimes they're angels and other times they just MAKE YOU WANT TO PULL YOUR HAIR OUT. The Wonder Weeks are periods of rapid brain development that make your baby's world bigger, brighter and sometimes scarier. It tells you why they are clingier, less or more hungry, less or more tired. I strongly recommend it to all new parents.
