"The Wonder Weeks app can be a lifesaver for parents during those times of wondering what on earth is going on."
A CALENDAR EXPLAINING THE DEVELOPMENT OF YOUR BABY: WHY YOUR BABY IS FUSSY, SLEEPS POOR AND EATS LESS DURING SET TIMES AND HOW YOU CAN HELP YOUR BABY.
The Wonder Weeks worldwide bestselling baby app is now a (native) iOS app! A personalized daily calendar of your baby’s development that will keep you informed about the (mental) leaps and bounds and the fussy phases of your baby -- any time of day or night. This baby calendar app won prizes in several countries as BEST PARENTING APP!
Think of it as a portable, at-a-glance version of the calendar leap chart in The Wonder Weeks. Where the book describes in-depth and easy-to-understand terms the incredible developmental changes your baby goes through, the app is the perfect leap calendar companion to track your baby’s mental development (during the first 20 months). By knowing what is going on inside the head of your baby, you can help him to make the leap more easily and stimulate his development.
The Wonder Weeks app helps new parents by:
- Calendar Showing when your baby makes a leap in his mental development
- What your baby can understand & learn after this mental leap
- What your baby can do after this leap
- What you can do to help your baby
This app is also a handy reminder for new parents when their baby’s brain is changing, or “leaping,” the baby is making a significant advance in mental development, and with each step forward comes a drastic change in the way your baby sees the world around him. Because these leaps come so quickly, the “new world” and new abilities can sometimes be scary, and the development can initially manifest in poor sleep, bad appetite, crying, clinging and crankiness – exhausting and frustrating mom and dad.
International experts on The Wonder Weeks: “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 Books Group). 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

What's New in Version 4.3.2
updated chart screen
Every baby is an individual, but similar!
I see a few complaints (on these reviews) of parents saying the app/book's suggested growth periods do not match their child... well, my first at now 14 months seemed to experience the ups and downs as explained in the app/book nearly perfectly (to the day sometimes). It was uncanny how we could read along to the next stage of her changes (and mood swings) and to look out for some of the growth milestones as they occurred.
I think the App could do with some updates in interface and operation, but otherwise is great. It almost needs to be imbedded into a baby-recording App, to record achievements at different stages.
Where I think parents may get caught out is the studies/experiences are based on your babies calculated "due" date, so if they're early or late or you (or your Ob) are not accurate as to their beginning, then the phases may not match up.
Note : "Doing the dishes" can be interpreted as wanting to help with tasks, and trying to copy what Mum is doing around the house, etc... Not actually doing the dishes for you!?
Don't waste your money
This is not accurate in the slightest for my baby. Furthermore there is no useful information regarding deviations, average lengths when the so called 'stormy period' has two phases. The help suggestions are useless and anyone with half a brain would already be doing everything contained in this app. Don't buy this app looking for answers, you'll be wasting your money when you can find the same information via a Google search.
App doesn't update
I've found that the days in the 'today tab' don't update unless I add my child's details again. For example, it said '15 days until the end of the leap' for two days and it only changed to 13 days after I re entered her details.
Otherwise app is quite good as a quick overview of the wonder weeks.
