What is The Wonder Weeks?

With The Wonder Weeks, parents are able to get a timely glimpse of the stages of development their little ones are going through, as well as suggestions for developmentally appropriate play activities they can engage them in.

Many new parents are stumped when their baby enters into a fussy period, or a period of eager eating/loss of appetite, and The Wonder Weeks is an app that attempts to help parents understand the correlations between their baby’s behavior and mental development.

Fussy baby? Exhausted every attempt to make baby happy? The Wonder Weeks aims to help parents understand the typical stages of development for babies, shedding light on behaviors related to growth explosions.

The Wonder Weeks app is based upon the bestselling parenting book of the same name, and includes the first two chapters, or first two baby “leaps,” of the book within the app for free. Those parents looking for additional information may purchase additional chapters via in-app purchases of $.99 each.

Per the publisher, The Wonder Weeks includes:

  • How to stimulate your baby’s mental development and help them turn their 10 predictable, great, fussy phases into magical leaps forward describes the incredible mental developmental changes (leaps) and regression periods that all babies go through.
  • Understanding the real reason behind crying, eating and sleeping problems is the only real solution every parent needs. The Wonder Weeks reveals what’s going on inside baby’s mind.

While the book has been an international bestseller, The Wonder Weeks app is a multiple award-winner, including:

  • Awarded Coolest App for Moms
  • Awarded by Apple as top 10 ‘Best of the year 2016’ in Australia, UK, Netherlands
  • Consumer Choice & Gold Award by MumIi
  • AppRx Awards Top 10 Children’s Health App
  • NHS (UK) – Best App for parents listing
  • Best App Ever Awards 2013 & 2014 (Health & Fitness)

Is The Wonder Weeks safe for my kids?

Parents should know that The Wonder Weeks is an app specifically designed to track a baby by age, explaining their mental development week by week. Users are required to be 17 years of age or older, therefore this app is not recommended for kids.

It’s important to note that The Wonder Weeks is not a pregnancy tracking app, but is meant to follow babies from birth to toddlerhood.

It is, however, worth noting that The Wonder Weeks app functions similarly to pregnancy trackers, in that it makes generalizations about a baby’s development week by week, and is not custom-tailored to an individual user’s baby. For this reason, The Wonder Weeks is more of a guide than a tracker.

User reviews of The Wonder Weeks are mixed, with many parents looking for a more custom approach, or stating that a simple internet search yields the same information. However, The Wonder Weeks app cuts out the internet searching, and delivers users explanations about babies’ leaps, when they typically occur so that parents can better understand behaviors.

It also includes activities parents can do alongside their babies to stimulate and encourage growth. At a cost of $2.99, this app is likely worth the investment to have information easily delivered and accessible for tired and harried parents.
