Product Description

Product Description

WARNING: In The Wonder Weeks, full version, all ten leaps are described. This chapter book only describes the fourth leap.
The Wonder Weeks, start fussy week 14-17, Wonder Week 19, Leap 4. How to stimulate your baby's mental development and help him turn this predictable, great, fussy phases into a magical leap forward, describes in easy-to-understand terms the incredible developmental changes that all babies go through 19 weeks after the due date (fussy period 14-17 weeks).
The book is based on the discovery of the phenomenon that all normal, healthy babies appear to be more tearful, troublesome, demanding and clingy at very nearly the same ages.

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

@19 Weeks (Leap of “Events”): “Itsy Bitsy Spider…”
The perceptual world your baby enters after the next leap is the world of “events.” Until your baby has made this leap, he can only perceive smooth transitions. After he has made this leap, he is able to perceive a short, familiar series of “smooth transitions” with all his senses – seeing, hearing, feeling, smelling, and tasting – and also when it comes to interactions with those around him. Examples include the perception of a bouncing ball, or grasping something with a hand. The baby will enjoy the classic nursery rhymes with gestures, such as "Itsy Bitsy Spider…"

Tip: If your baby is “fussy,” be sure to observe if he is mastering new skills already, or attempting to do so.

Note: Most babies make this leap 19 weeks after the due date. However, some babies make the leap one week sooner, some one week later.

This chapter / leap book includes:
• Guide to baby's behavior at the age of 19 weeks (fussy period 14-17 weeks)
• An explanation of the markers for cranky, clingy, crying (the three C's) behavior and how to deal with them
• 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
This chapter / leap book your parents:
• Support in times of trouble (19 weeks) (fussy period 14-17 weeks)
• Self-confidence
• Help in understanding your baby

3.0 out of 5 stars Confusing for an exhausted new mum 28 Jan 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
It was probably my fault for not reading the title properly, but as an exhausted new mummy, trying desperately to make sense of my babies crying, I didn't realise I was just ordering a sub section of the book. I ordered the wrong age section and found myself getting rather confused.

This section of the book really helped me to understand what was going on with my sweet baby boy. He went from being a happy, sleep through the night baby to a fussy, wake up often baby. Thankfully it was just part of the leap and he was back to himself after.

My daughter is approaching leap 4 in the wonder weeks and this book was helpful in letting me know what to expect and how to handle it. I wish there would have been a few more suggestions about how to deal with the fussiness and naps (or lack thereof), but it is helpful nonetheless. Remember this is only one chapter of the book that you are buying!

Not knowing what wonder weeks were, I read the reviews and thought it was a complete book... it is not. It is only one section of the book and a middle one at that.
