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 Disclaimer: This App is developed with the greatest care.

This is by far the best app! A must if you have a baby! The weeks when the baby is taking leaps are right on and the helpful tips when they are going threw a leap! I love how you can have more then one baby on there at a time as well! Best 3 dollars I have ever spent!
There is a new version that wants you to pay more money and now this app will not update. Not happy at all. I paid for an app that won’t work now.
App is full of summaries - not worth $3 in my option. Let the full book instead.
I regret spending money on it. I think that if the developers spent more time making it more user friendly, and also not having these giant chunks of information rather than having easier to read, short paragraphs, it would be greatly improved .
Like most other reviews, I LOVED this app until the last update which requires you to pay for full summaries. These full summaries used to be included with the price of the app; however, now the developers seemed to change it to find ways to make more money by asking you to buy the ebook or audiobook for the full summary. I used to give it 5 stars, but now I want my money back after this change. :( Update - the developers have replied to my request denying any changes occurred even after I provided them evidence of paid content previously being removed. Poor customer service.
Especially when the child is your first, like ours, this little app is like having a pocket manual for your baby. It is especially useful when little one becomes inexplicably fussier. Why? Well, according to the Wonder Weeks (which is based on evidence-based medical science), this is usually because your child is going through one of the many ‘leaps’ of childhood. The app was incredibly accurate in predicting when (indicated by a rain cloud icon) our sweet one suddenly because much more sour. Knowing this was itself helpful since parents armed with this knowledge can fortify their emotional defenses in preparation. While some baby apps are fun - but do little in the way of informing parents - The Wonder Weeks stands out as the rare outlier which both satisfies our curiosity while respecting that our time for doing so is quite limited after baby’s arrival. I highly recommend it.
The only thing you will use in this app is the calendar and you can make one yourself if you really want to. The home page information is confusing because it tells you briefly about the upcoming leap but somehow by the end of the blurb you realize it’s talking about the last leap. You have to go into the “all leaps” section each time to read about the one that’s coming but even that is annoying because they are labeled by the number of weeks your kid will be at he end of it. I just want to read about the 5th leap not the Leap of the 26th week. Besides my kid is not going through these on time anyway so it’s not even relevant. Oh yeah and the videos don’t work.
You buy the app for the information but then have to buy the chapters too. Same the money - and just buy the book if interested. Kind of an expensive app for additional purchases. There is some interesting information but I’d rather put my $2.99 towards a fuller information source.
It’s so much easier for me to handle my fussy baby when I know why he’s fussy. There’s not always a lot that I can do about it, but it gives me a little added patience knowing he’s going through a huge chunk of development and that’s the reason for his behavior. I can’t say enough good things about this app!
The app itself is pretty good, but it lacked a lot of information. I found that I don’t use it and don’t get any new info out of it since I have the book. If I didn’t have the book the app would be fine. I wish the info in the app was either additional info to the book or more practical. I feel like I wasted my money on the app.
