KEY FEATURES ============================= Keep track of your baby’s mental development Learn all about the leaps and bounds and the fussy phases of your baby Read the bestselling Wonder Weeks book here in this app 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

  • Not good for preemies

    By Ranman21
    So the app specifically states to use due date because that is when baby will leap, and not when they were actually born in the case of preemies. This is wrong by my own observation with my preemie. It says she won’t have first leap for a little bit yet (she is 9 weeks tomorrow and came exactly 5 weeks early) but she has already gone through second leap. She plays with her hands by wringing them together. She waves her arms intentionally. She is making noises like “ah” and others. She is leaping at her age not her gestational age.
  • Love this app!

    I absolutely love this app. It will tell you what your baby may be going through and different periods of time. It’s very cool to read it and then watch as your baby develops. Recommend to all mamas!

    All babies are different, and I should have known better than to buy an app that supposedly applies to all babies. The leaps might be skills that all babies learn, but there is no way of knowing WHEN your specific baby will develop those abilities, let alone when your baby will be fussy or go through a “stormy” period. It’s pretty absurd that the book and the app claim to give these predictive abilities to parents with a calendar. The “leaps” didn’t coincide at all with my baby. I followed the rules and went by my child’s due date, instead of birthdate, but still the calendar/chart was SO off base. My baby would have fussy growth spurts, and sleep regressions, during projected “happy” periods. And my child would master skills months sooner or later than was stated. This app is useless. I shouldn’t have wasted my money.
  • Wasn’t accurate

    I’m surprised how many people had good luck with this app, but for my baby this app wasn’t accurate. He doesn’t seem to follow the schedule lol. For example, right now it’s a fussy period supposedly and has the little storm symbol over these particular days, and he is actually having a very sunny period, one of his better weeks! He has been a delight this week and waking up happy playing in his crib and has even let me go shopping a couple times without instantly complaining. Happy others liked the app though.
  • Absolute must have!!!

    I’ve used this app for all 3 of my children. It has always helped me knowing why they were extra fussy and what milestones they will be hitting soon.
  • Don’t waste your money

    This app was inaccurate and a waste of time and money. All it does is stress you out about an upcoming leep and then it doesn’t even happen because the app is wrong! I tried going off both the due date and his actual birth date. Neither were even close to being accurate.
  • Sanity saver!

    By NansMom
    Timing has been really spot on and it really helps save my sanity knowing why my little one has become so cranky and when to expect it! It’s been great to know what changes are happening in her development and what I can do to help guide her!
  • Good info but

    By Collibeth
    Good info, but I could have gotten it for free at the library in the book. I was under the impression I could tailor this to my baby (born 3 weeks before due date and did leap 1 1.5 weeks before app), but I can’t put in that info. So I have to extrapolate myself, which I can do with the book. Videos not working right now either.
