Product description


Fantastic tips on how to help baby reach his potential during and after [the wonder weeks]. Once I realized there was a reason--and a positive reason, at that--that my kid had suddenly turned terrible, it eased the pain of parenting through these times. One of our personal favorites...[a] comprehensive guide to baby's development during the first 20 months... The book outlines when and why each "wonder week" happens; it also offers parents insights into how to help their babies navigate each wonder week, and turn it into a leap forward for baby. The Wonder Weeks is the newly-updated go-to guide for understanding your child's mental developmental milestones (referred to as "leaps")....Understanding the real reason behind crying and eating and sleeping problems is the only real solution parents need, and take it from us--you'll be glad to be in the know.

About the Author

Xaviera Plas-Plooij, mother of three and CEO of the Wonder Weeks, has one mission: to give parents the tools they need in order to fully understand their baby's mental and emotional development. Daughter of Dr. Frans X. Plooij and Dr. Hetty van de Rijt, founding authors of The Wonder Weeks, Plas-Plooij has significantly revised and modernized the sixth edition of the book. As a writer, columnist, and popular speaker, she's in 24/7 contact with parents around the globe. Plas-Plooij is a trusted member of the Lumi by Pampers Expert Advisory Panel. She lives with her husband and children in the Netherlands. Frans X. Plooij, PhD, has been conducting research in the field of psychology for close to 50 years. Highlights include working alongside his wife, Dr. van de Rijt, with Dr. Jane Goodall on infant development in free-living chimpanzees in the Gombe National Park; leading the department of Research and Development at the institute for Child Studies of the City of Amsterdam; and currently presiding over the International Research Institute on Infant Studies (IRIS) at Arnhem, the Netherlands. He is a full member of several international scientific societies in the domains of child development and behavioral biology and of the New York Academy of Sciences. The late Hetty van de Rijt received her PhD at Cambridge University as a physical anthropologist. With her husband, Dr. Plooij, she studied infant development in free-living chimpanzees with Dr. Jane Goodall in the Gombe National Park. As a researcher at the University of Amsterdam, she studied the development of human babies in their home environment through direct observations, filming, and in-depth interviews with their parents.
