It’s a BFBN trade day! I’m over at The Moses Home today talking about why I try to maintain a normal schedule when my kids have a minor illness. Here today I have Katrina from Mama’s Organized Chaos! She wrote a great review of the Wonder Weeks book. It’s amazing to learn how babies learn about the world around them!
- This Week’s Fussy Signs: This section outlines what behaviors and clues to look for indicating that your baby is about to make a developmental leap. There is a diary section where you can check off the signs you’ve noticed to help you keep track of things.
- The Magical Leap Forward: This section discusses the new skills and abilities your child may acquire during the leap. Again, there is a diary section with a checklist . This was probably our favorite part of the book! We loved reading about all of the new skills that our baby would soon acquire!
- What You Can Do to Help: This is an amazing section, that gives you ideas for games, toys, and even focused activities that are catered to each stage of development. This is also one of my favorite parts to read through and gave me some great ideas!
- After the Leap: After the leap, your baby will start to be happy, and more independent again. This section lets you know when to expect this.
