Take notes about a range of topics
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

Ratings and Reviews
You will love this app
Believe me you will use this app and be so glad you have it. When your child is fussy you can see her chart and say oh she’s in a stormy period until whatever date her stormy time goes to on her calendar. You’ll also see what you should expect your child to be doing at different levels of development.
And please know that your child is able to learn things about her world from day one. No they won’t be able to do a lot of things until their bodies are able, but in there mines they can. All they need is your time to teach them. And they will only do what you expect them to do. If you don’t think your little one can know the difference between a few stuffed animals way before they are a year old, let me tell you that you are so wrong!
They can get the one you asked them for at 6-9 months old. Yes I did say 6-9 MONTHS. Try it and see. They can start way before you may have thought. So expect them to learn as much as you can teach them and they will. They do have to wait to show you what they know on some things because of their body, it has to catch-up to their brain and they have to get control over their arms legs and all the rest to show you what they have known for months. Keep teaching and you’ll have one smart little child and they will be amazing.
Great-Makes you want more
This app if great. I first purchased the book and ready parts of it. The book has more information, but most of it is parents’ experiences. While those are important, I feel that the most value giving by The Wonder Weeks is that provided by the chart. Those small little clouds can help you keep you sanity. Knowing that a leap is approaching or that you’re in the middle of one, helps you stay calm as a mother as it justifies the madness.
The app provides the timing for the leap: by week and by dates. Also, the new feature adds it to your calendar which is GREAT!
There is some information as of what to expect behavior wise. A bit more info about what each leap means for them and what to expect them to do.
I recommend this app to all my mommy friends. It’s a great tool for a mom with one or 5 kids.
I would have liked to see also an indication of growth spurts in the chart.
Also, the chart ends at around 2 years I believe. While it is very beneficial to until that point, the kids still have major developmental leaps after (as I have witnessed with my own child). So, it would be great to add any information for after that. That just stays there and does nothing after... seems very close ended.
Overall: it is great for when you need it, and you will need it for your own peace of mind when you don’t know why they keep crying and nursing.
An Essential Baby App
Especially when the child is your first, like ours, this little app is like having a pocket manual for your baby. It is especially useful when little one becomes inexplicably fussier. Why? Well, according to the Wonder Weeks (which is based on evidence-based medical science), this is usually because your child is going through one of the many ‘leaps’ of childhood. The app was incredibly accurate in predicting when (indicated by a rain cloud icon) our sweet one suddenly because much more sour. Knowing this was itself helpful since parents armed with this knowledge can fortify their emotional defenses in preparation. While some baby apps are fun - but do little in the way of informing parents - The Wonder Weeks stands out as the rare outlier which both satisfies our curiosity while respecting that our time for doing so is quite limited after baby’s arrival. I highly recommend it.
