Overview

WARNING: In The Wonder Weeks, full version, all ten leaps are described. This chapter book only describes the first leap.

The Wonder Weeks Fussy and Wonder Week 5, Leap 1. 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 5 weeks after the due date.

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.

@5 Weeks (Leap of “Changing Sensations”): growing and a tear

Everything indicates that during this leap your baby is experiencing a rapid maturation of metabolism, internal organs and senses. S/he is clearly more interested in the world around him and is now better able to look at things beyond the range of 20-to-30 cm. As a parent you notice that your baby suddenly is responding more to you and others. Interesting note: your baby produces, for the first time or much more frequently than before, tears while crying.

Did you know… Just before your baby makes this leap, there is a dramatic increase in the circumference of his/her head. The glucose metabolism in his brain also changes. So a lot is happening in his little brain. You can really call this a major leap!

This chapter / leap book includes:
• Guide to baby's behavior at the age of 5 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 offers you:
• Support in times of trouble (5 weeks)
• Self-confidence
• Help in understanding your baby
• Hints on how to help your baby play and learn
• A unique account of your baby's development
