Love it! 5/5
This app is a lifesaver! As far as I can tell it is spot on with when he will go through leaps and what to expect!
This app doesn’t have help me at all 1/5
By Amy Brannock
Unfortunately, this was a waste of money. The information is useless and does not align with my child at all.
I mean, I could’ve gotten all this app has to offer in an e-book. Really don’t see what the fuss is about. A LOT more apps out there have daily value. Pretty disappointed.
MUST HAVE! Great baby shower gift! 5/5
If you don’t yet have the Wonder Weeks app, I cannot recommend it enough. I used it for our 21mo, and it was so nice to know ahead of time when I could expect her to be fussy, grumpy, or clingy. I’m only 25 weeks, but I’ve already programmed baby’s due date (WW works off of due date, not birth date, which the app explains why), and the app has programmed baby’s leaps into my calendar. Normally I cringe at the thought of spending money on an app, but this did prove to be valuable enough, and worth the small expense. App works great, communicates with iPhone calendar, and even has instructional videos that are so helpful.
Not good for preemies 1/5
So the app specifically states to use due date because that is when baby will leap, and not when they were actually born in the case of preemies. This is wrong by my own observation with my preemie. It says she won’t have first leap for a little bit yet (she is 9 weeks tomorrow and came exactly 5 weeks early) but she has already gone through second leap. She plays with her hands by wringing them together. She waves her arms intentionally. She is making noises like “ah” and others. She is leaping at her age not her gestational age.
Love this app! 5/5
By lauren janko
I absolutely love this app. It will tell you what your baby may be going through and different periods of time. It’s very cool to read it and then watch as your baby develops. Recommend to all mamas!
Pretty spot on 4/5
This app is pretty spot on with milestones and leaps. I wish the count down to the next leap provided more information. i.e #of days until the next, # of days since the beginning, and the # of days left in current. Currently there is only one count.
It Works! It’s True! 5/5
Have found this app sooo helpful in understanding my daughter! It’s been spot on!
Must have for new parents 5/5
The book is great but the app is even better. The calendar chart is very helpful. I was amazed, the first time around, at how spot on the fussy phases are and it’s the same with the second baby now. A little less stress when you know when the storm is coming in.
Completely in sync with my baby 5/5
I love this app because it helps explain what’s going on with my baby week by week, the good and the bad. It makes me more relaxed realizing that most of his behavior is typical of a baby at his age. Sometimes it’s freakishly on point with what my baby is doing that week. I highly recommend this to any anxious new parent like me!!
So Great! 5/5
Always pretty on point and gives me great insight into what is really going on in DD’s little head.
All babies are different, and I should have known better than to buy an app that supposedly applies to all babies. The leaps might be skills that all babies learn, but there is no way of knowing WHEN your specific baby will develop those abilities, let alone when your baby will be fussy or go through a “stormy” period. It’s pretty absurd that the book and the app claim to give these predictive abilities to parents with a calendar. The “leaps” didn’t coincide at all with my baby. I followed the rules and went by my child’s due date, instead of birthdate, but still the calendar/chart was SO off base. My baby would have fussy growth spurts, and sleep regressions, during projected “happy” periods. And my child would master skills months sooner or later than was stated. This app is useless. I shouldn’t have wasted my money.
Wasn’t accurate 2/5
I’m surprised how many people had good luck with this app, but for my baby this app wasn’t accurate. He doesn’t seem to follow the schedule lol. For example, right now it’s a fussy period supposedly and has the little storm symbol over these particular days, and he is actually having a very sunny period, one of his better weeks! He has been a delight this week and waking up happy playing in his crib and has even let me go shopping a couple times without instantly complaining. Happy others liked the app though.
Absolute must have!!! 5/5
I’ve used this app for all 3 of my children. It has always helped me knowing why they were extra fussy and what milestones they will be hitting soon.
Don’t waste your money 1/5
This app was inaccurate and a waste of time and money. All it does is stress you out about an upcoming leep and then it doesn’t even happen because the app is wrong! I tried going off both the due date and his actual birth date. Neither were even close to being accurate.
Sanity saver! 5/5
Timing has been really spot on and it really helps save my sanity knowing why my little one has become so cranky and when to expect it! It’s been great to know what changes are happening in her development and what I can do to help guide her!
Good info but 3/5
Good info, but I could have gotten it for free at the library in the book. I was under the impression I could tailor this to my baby (born 3 weeks before due date and did leap 1 1.5 weeks before app), but I can’t put in that info. So I have to extrapolate myself, which I can do with the book. Videos not working right now either.
Cranky baby? Might be a leap! 5/5
By Boo to spam
I may not reference the app regularly, but if the little one has been a crankster for a few days, I’ll take a look and more often than not, it’s a leap. The descriptions of what the kiddos are learning and experiencing is typically spot on. Great app for first time and veteran parents alike!
I love how it takes into account the baby due date. I wish the app talks more about multiples.
WORTH THE BUY! 5/5
This app has always been beyond accurate with both of my sons! Always helped me understand why my kids were so fussy at a period of time & I love that I knew exactly when his first sleep regression started & when it ended.
Recommend to all my pregnant friends! 5/5
I feel like it’s super accurate! I plan a ton around this app. My first baby and his app has helped a ton putting my mind to ease with what is considered normal. Great ideas to help her development along. Highly recommend!!
Informative and interesting. Could provide a few more techniques and tips for parents to help manage baby through the various leaps.
This app is super boring—- you can find all of this info through a google search without paying for a lack luster, ugly boring app. There’s no color and the writing doesn’t grab or hold the readers attention. I regret buying this app.
Spot on 5/5
A friend just recommended this app after hearing my worries as to why my 8 week old isn’t sleeping all of the sudden. The chart is so accurate it’s eerie! They say there’s not a manual for babies, but this is pretty darn close! Very impressed! Helps understand what your little one is going through.
Wonderful app 5/5
I love this app, not just for all of the information about my baby’s development but also, I can predict when he will be crabby, frustrated, or his sleep schedule will change because the leap calendar is pretty spot on. It also gives really great ideas for how to encourage developing skills in the leap.
Love the content 5/5
Love the content and simplicity of this app! The information about leaps is so vital when you have a baby who is very easily frustrated at the beginning of each leap. I can almost count it down to the day.
Best guide for the unexplained fussiness 5/5
Using it for my second after it helped with my first. It really was like clockwork and you can track the new advancements with each leap.
Must Have Parenting App! 5/5
This app was a life-saver during the first 1.5 year of my baby’s life! When she was fussy for apparently no reason, we had something to turn to. It’s so hard seeing your baby be cranky! But not knowing what’s going on or how you can help makes it so much worse! This app will let you know when your child will be going through mental leaps based on their age. Leaps in development can also mean fussier periods. It’s also super fun to look out for and notice the changes that the app says should be happening! This app was spot on for my kid and I’m so glad I had it!
Definitely a smart app to have 5/5
I was suggested this app from a lovely mom friend I have who swore by it and i can’t even tell you how accurate it is and how relieving it is to be wondering about what’s going on with my child and see that’s it’s normal! Very much so worth the money to get this and wish I had/knew about it with my first!
Best newborn parenting app! 5/5
By Beautiful Design
The Wonder Weeks app is so easy to use, gives reassurance during Baby’s fussy phases and it’s fun to see what Baby is learning right now.
If you haven’t read the book, it’s a fun read, but this is easier for new parents for sure!
Great tool 5/5
New parents! You need this app. It’s worth the $3. Reading up on why your kiddo gets irritable or fussy helps you understand what’s going on in their brains, therefore making these stages less exhausting and frustrating! Well set up with bullet points, videos etc that all help make this info easy to digest when sleep deprived and busy with a little one. Love the alerts that connect to your phone so you know when they’re about to enter a new leap!
Not all it’s cracked up to be 1/5
Worst $2.99 I’ve spent.
It only gives you about 5 sentences on why your baby will cry in the next 3-5 weeks and how to soothe them. That’s about it.
Not user friendly and you can’t read future leaps. Our baby seems one leap ahead of what the app says but we can’t view the next one in advance. We adopted our baby and mom didn’t receive prenatal care so we don’t know when due date actually was. So it’s a pretty useless app for us. Not sure why so many people love this app so much.
Worth the money 5/5
I was hesitant to purchase this app at first, but finally did after several friends swore by it. So far it has been spot on with my son and his fussy periods. It helps keep you sane as a parent because you know when to expect a fussier/clingier baby & it offers helpful suggestions and insight. With my first, I always thought it was something I was doing wrong. Now I know that these are leaps that all babies go through! Love this app!
Love loveeee this app! 5/5
Absolutely love this app! It has helped me so much with not one but both of my babies. One is 18 months old and my other is 1.5 months old.. highly recommend this app to everybody who has babies or toddlers!!!
Freezes up phone 3/5
Great information and super helpful, but every time I go to open the app it freezes up my phone and sometimes the app won’t even work. I’ve had to do a hard restart several times before because I couldn’t get my phone to respond after opening the app.
Paid reviewers? 1/5
I don’t know whether the other reviewers have been paid, but I don’t know how else a higher rating than horrible could be attained. I’m short, this app is a complete waste of your time.
A “MUST HAVE” App 5/5
I’ve now used this app with two of my children...I wish I had known about it for the first two! Because of this app, I was aware of WHY my babies were crying, fussy, restless through the night, and needing more attention! It took so much guesswork out of a time that can be very frustrating! This is a MUST HAVE APP for any parent, new or seasoned!!
Every mom needs this app! 5/5
As a first time mom there were so many times my baby was having a rough week and I couldn’t figure out what I was doing wrong when suddenly I remembered this app and decided to check if we were in a leap. Each time I would find that we were, in fact, just entering one or right smack in the middle of a stormy week. Having that knowledge gave me the reassurance I need to know that I wasn’t doing anything wrong but also let me know that there was more I could be doing to help my baby through the current leap! It has made each leap so much easier for both of us! I also love that you can add more than one baby and I look forward to using it for any future children I have!
Freezes phone 3/5
Love this app but lately, like the last few months, it always freezes my phone and takes forever to load or just won’t load. Hoping fixes happen soon so it’s usable again!!
Incredibly Helpful 5/5
As a first time mom this app has been so incredibly helpful. Understanding my son with each new leap has helped me so much and made me feel like I’m not failing as a mother.
Every parent needs this app! Im now using it on my second child and its an absolute lifesaver!
Spot On! 5/5
This app is spot on for developmental milestones.
I gave in and bought this when my second born was having a few days of being miserable hoping it would shed some light. He wasn’t even in “a leap” and now that he’s happy and sleeping great he’s supposed to be well into leap 4. Total hogwash imho. I will be deleting the app.
Did the text just change? 2/5
This app was great (5 stars), but what used to be concrete suggestions for games to play during leaps like blocks that can be knocked down and peekaboo. Now it suggests that you pay attention to your baby and compliment them. That’s much less helpful (2 stars).
So good! 5/5
This app gives me so much insight into what my little one is experiencing down to the T! I read through information about each leap with a smile because each time it is spot on. I love the suggestions of activities and games to help support her development and the heads up about new mental and emotional leaps that may come with more fussiness or clinginess. It’s a great tool for new moms looking for in depth information and some direction for helping their little ones grow into creative and well adjusted people!
I’m not crazy! 5/5
My baby does get extra grumpy! And for good reason! Thank God there is a way I can understand her through all of this and help her better
Love it 4/5
By Shann P
I love this app but I really wish they would add the growth spurts to the calendar. That way it’s all in one place.
Can’t change name/due date 1/5
How do you fix the name/due date??
Love it! 5/5
It’s easier to figure out what my baby wants when I use the app, depending on what leap he has been going thru I can figure out if he needs more stimulation or more cuddle time or maybe just some alone time to decompress after a busy day.
Literally the most helpful app... 5/5
Pretty much every time my child has been acting weirdly fussy out of no where, this app would explain EXACTLY why and help me gain perspective on what is typically a very tiring and frustrating time for mamas.
