The Wonder Weeks describes in easy-to-understand terms the incredible developmental changes and regression periods that all babies go through during the first 20 months of their lives. Age-related fluctuations and the need for body contact and attention are all related to major and quite dramatic changes in the brains of children. These changes enable a baby to enter a whole new perceptual world and, as a consequence, to learn many new skills. Wonder week by wonder week you'll discover the dates in the first 20 months when all babies take ten major development leaps. Learn how to encourage each leap forward. Help your baby with the three Cs' of fussy behavior: Cranky, Clingy and Crying. Recognize the on-set of stressful times and join your children in coping with them. Based on the scientific- and parental-world-changing discovery of a phenomenon: all normal, healthy babies appear to be more fussy at very nearly the same ages, regression periods, and sleep less in these phases, The Wonder Weeks will help your baby, and you, get the most out of these developmental phases.

Physicians from around the world came to watch the Mayo brothers perform surgery. The Mayo brothers invited other doctors to join them, forming teams of medical experts.

When it comes to getting your baby or toddler to sleep through the night, discover why when matters more than how Are you tired of endless hours spent rocking your baby to sleep? Have you “hit the wall” when it comes to sleepless nights? Teaching your baby or toddler to sleep through the night can be a bewildering and frustrating experience.

During the first five years, a child develops from a helpless infant into an individual who has mastered a wide range of skills. The Wonder Years looks at this process of development, the ideal patterns of growth, how manipulative, movement, social, and mental skills are acquired, how the personality is formed, and when bowel and bladder control is acquired. Parents need to be aware of whether their children are acquiring the skills they need to develop their full potentials-and at the optimum time. Moreover, they can provide the ideal conditions for abilities to flourish. The Wonder Years highlights normal variances, and suggests specific observations to make. It also shows, through a variety of fun-filled activities, how easy it is to promote development and to create an environment in which a child can fluorish physically, mentally, and emotionally. Finally, it enables parents to understand how certain factors affect development.
