Wonder Weeks

£4.99

Product description

"The Wonder Weeks. How to stimulate your baby's mental development and help him turn his 8 predictable, great, fussy phases into magical leaps forward" describes in easy-to-understand terms the incredible developmental changes that all babies go through during the first 60 weeks of their lives.The book is based on the discovery of a little known phenomenon: all normal, healthy babies appear to be more tearful, troublesome, demanding and clingy at very nearly the same ages.These age-related fluctuations in need for body contact and attention are related to major and quite dramatic changes in the brains of the children. These changes enable a baby to enter a whole new perceptual world and, as a consequence, to learn many new skills. This should be a reason for celebration, but as far as the baby is concerned these changes are bewildering. He's taken aback-everything has changed overnight. It is as if he has woken up on a strange planet.The book includes:
 Week-by-week guide to baby's behavior
 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 childThe book offers parents:
 Support in times of trouble
Help in understanding their baby
 Hints on how to help their baby play and learn
 A unique account of their baby's development
