RRP  $29.95 $29.35

With more than 2 million copies sold worldwide, this unique and award-winning guide is based on ground-breaking behavioral research that explains how babies experience 10 magical "leaps" during the first 20 months of life. It reassures parents that fussiness, regression, and wakeful nights are necessary for growth and won't last forever. The new edition includes:

  • Top ten lists of what to expect for each leap
  • Updated charts that map out when to expect the fussy behavior (cranky, clingy, crying), and when it might transition into something positive
  • Checklists with skills and abilities, featuring a minimum and maximum age range, because every baby develops differently
  • Fun games and gentle activities to help soothe the transitions in and beyond leaps
  • Suggestions to help parents cope with their baby's changing behaviors

The Wonder Weeks has a bestselling app, an interactive website, thriving Facebook groups, and "like"-generating social media posts from celebrities, influencers, and everyday parents alike.
