Great-Makes you want more 5/5
This app if great. I first purchased the book and ready parts of it. The book has more information, but most of it is parents’ experiences. While those are important, I feel that the most value giving by The Wonder Weeks is that provided by the chart. Those small little clouds can help you keep you sanity. Knowing that a leap is approaching or that you’re in the middle of one, helps you stay calm as a mother as it justifies the madness.
The app provides the timing for the leap: by week and by dates. Also, the new feature adds it to your calendar which is GREAT!
There is some information as of what to expect behavior wise. A bit more info about what each leap means for them and what to expect them to do.
I recommend this app to all my mommy friends. It’s a great tool for a mom with one or 5 kids.
I would have liked to see also an indication of growth spurts in the chart.
Also, the chart ends at around 2 years I believe. While it is very beneficial to until that point, the kids still have major developmental leaps after (as I have witnessed with my own child). So, it would be great to add any information for after that. That just stays there and does nothing after... seems very close ended.
Overall: it is great for when you need it, and you will need it for your own peace of mind when you don’t know why they keep crying and nursing.
So helpful and eerily accurate regarding fussy phases 5/5
Great suggestions for how to help your baby through mental growing pains. Also what the heck do you DO with a tiny baby. Gives great activity suggestions for all ages but found the ones for a year and under most helpful because those are not the most obvious.
So spot on!! 5/5
By Addie Pope
My son was born 4 weeks early so most development guide lines are a little off from his reality. Because wonder weeks uses the due date, all of the leaps have come right on schedule! I love having some insight to what he’s going through and how he perceives the world. It’s also reassuring to have an explanation of why he goes through fussy phases.
Helpful for getting through tough periods 5/5
By Angler fish
It was very helpful to hear about all the changes my child was going through to help understand how to be helpful, but almost more so was the charting of the “stormy” periods and “sunny” periods where you could expect to see mood changes in your child. That helped me understand the fussy times much more and not become overly worried when they arrived.
Love this app 5/5
Such a wonderful and helpful reference
Love it! 5/5
By Kerry N.
I wanted to buy the book, but I know me and with two kids now, I won’t do read it. So, this app is great and I can take it with me where ever I go! I didn’t know about this with my first born so I’m really glad I have it with my second. This is totally worth the $2, y’all!
Love this app 5/5
This has been very accurate with my baby’s development. I like how it gives me ideas on what to do to help my baby through the leaps and stimulate her learning.
So much support 5/5
I’m writing this as a first-time parent. I’m exhausted, overwhelmed, and above all completely terrified I’m going to do the wrong thing and miss critical opportunities to facilitate my son’s development. This app provides timely and useful information that is imparted in manageable and easy to understand chunks. As much as I would love to be able to read all the well-researched books I can find, I don’t have the time. This app gives me information that I would find in those books as it applies to my son in relation to his stage of development and what I can do to support him. I use it almost daily and I can’t imagine parenting without it.
Valuable and fun info! 5/5
I’m loving this app..it is fascinating to learn about what my baby is learning and how he is developing, along with the signs to look for that demonstrate his new skills and knowledge. It’s great to see the “stormy” and “sunny” days ahead and be able to plan accordingly.
Spot On 5/5
I was a skeptic at first with my oldest son but it lined up so well every leap it was nuts! This go round (Baby boy #2) is the same- spot on behaviors and signals! It helps me understand my baby’s world and gives me helpful insights into what he’s learning and experiencing and suggestions on how to guide him through each leap. I love this app and have recommended it to MANY friends!!
Best app for new parents!! 5/5
As a new parent, it feels like every other week is a growth spurt, and it kind of is! This app taught me so much, and helped me have context for my fussy baby and helped understand what was actually happening and how he was changing, and how to help him grow. It’s a lot of reading, especially if you buy the extra chapters (but they’re worth it!)
Peek inside your little one’s brain 5/5
This app has been transformative for us as parents. Especially in knowing what to expect around our baby’s brain development. The ability to anticipate the changes, prepare for them, stimulate them, encourage them, and also take care of ourselves and our little one in the midst of it is invaluable.We love the creative way this app helps us to understand what is happening in each week, and how to see both the bright side and the underbelly of how hard this changes for the baby. We highly recommend this app for any parents Wanting to help their babies development.
Wish I’d had this for my kids! 5/5
As a new and jubilant grandma, this takes all the guess work out of raising this little 8-month-old! At least so far the baby has exactly paralleled what the book said was occurring. It has taken the mystery out of why a child seems to back step a formerly achieved behavior. I expect it, understand it, and know it will change. And now that I understand what enormous changes the baby is going through, I don’t feel guilty indulging in extra pampering... just as I would with a sick child. Thank you and I have recommended your book and site to all parents I know!!
Needs comment section 3/5
Good info and good summary of the book. I just wish you had a forum or place for people to write and comment on each other’s experiences with each leap. It would be great to interact with others experiencing the same things I am.
I love the calendar though!
This is the best app I’ve ever downloaded. Worth the money twice over. I recommend it to every new parent. It’s amazing. It’s helped me so so much to understand my little girl’s development.
Not Worth It 1/5
I heard great things about this app so I gave it a try. Literally makes no sense! The definitions are so vague yet so far behind on development. I will read what leap my son is supposedly on and he had already hit all that months prior. Waste of money. Better off googling what you want to know is going on with your child.
Great app for parents 5/5
I loved the book and the app is just as great. I love that I can read more about my baby’s development and also get alerts when it’s time for a new leap.
A must for all parents.
One of the best things ever 5/5
There were times when I was pulling my hair out trying to find out what was wrong with my twins & why they were so fussy. Then, I would check the app & have this ‘Ohhhh’ moment. I can always track when there will be more fussy periods for them. We’re coming up on the 10th & final leap & this app has been right there with us the whole time. I recommend it to all of my new parent friends
A must have! 5/5
I live by this app and the book! So much good information explaining what’s going on with your baby and how to help. I don’t know why everyone doesn’t have it. They should!!
Not sure what I paid for 2/5
By Alive and liberal
It seems the app is basically a list of leaps, with a sort of calendar based on the due date. Unclear why it costs 3$.
Luv it 5/5
As a mom of two kiddos , this app is amazing. Wish I would’ve know of it with my first bby. But with this little girl now n this amazing app I can understand way better.
This app is so important. Not only because it allows you to be in tune with what your child is going through but also because it validates how you feel as a mom. It allows you a minute to sit down and put into words what you and your child are going through and how to get through it. It teaches and reassures and allows for a happy relationship.
Healthful and informative 5/5
By Steph frazho
I was looking for a good app to explain my baby's development and this one is great. I learned about it from a coworker and am glad I decided to buy it. It explains the major steps they are going through in their cognitive development.
1st Time Parents 5/5
By Kath Atonic
My husband and I have had no clue what to expect, this app at least gives us a heads up. I recommend it to all parents of babies at any age. Our daughter just entered leap 10 (Lord hear our prayer) and we still use it.
Highly useful! 4/5
Having the info from the book in an app is super useful, specially having the chart with dates. In my case it has helped me understand why is my baby fussy of more cranky than usual in a specific time. Some videos can be improved.
I love it! 5/5
By Miracle Morning -er
Every time my daughter started acting “odd” lol I would check this app. The breakdown is so helpful for my understanding!
This is great! 5/5
I love this app! I can tell when my baby is going to be fussy and plan for mellow days in her cloudy days. I also like The app because it tells me how I can help my baby grow neurologically and what to expect when she’s in the leap.
This is always 100% on point! I love how I get a heads up before a leap so I can better adjust for her, give her the little things to help with the leap she is going through. We’re on our 3rd leap and I can truly see her shining through this one. Smooth transitions, so we’re feeling different textures and objects and making different sounds! I love this! A must have for any parent!!
I really enjoyed the book along with the app. They both helped me understand what my daughter was learning and how some days she is going to be frustrated or tired and it has no reflection on me as a new parent.
You’re doing great momma! 5/5
This app helps me to give myself a little grace in this whole mom-ing thing! Sometimes, during a particularly rough time in my baby’s development I feel like I’m spinning my wheels trying to figure out what more I can do to make things easier. Then I check my wonder weeks app and see that we’re in the middle of a leap, and I just feel a sense of release. It’s nothing I’m doing wrong, it’s just a leap, and totally normal. As moms we are so hard on ourselves, and this app has helped me give myself a little break!
Good stuff 5/5
I like that this app keeps it simple and is mainly about helping parents get this information in an non-intrusive way. Thanks for the great app 👍🏼
Such a good tool for moms and dads who are trying to figure out what is going on in their baby's head! Highly informational and reassuring when LO is fussy.
Love it 5/5
Very useful helps me understand my baby
Amazing app! Very accurate. Worth purchasing.
Useful for first time parents 5/5
By Ellie T...
It helps me understand when my baby will be extra fussy and to prepare myself for stormy days.
Wonderful app 5/5
Very very useful and cute application.
A must have for new moms 5/5
This is the only app that has helped explain our son’s “fussy” periods. It has been spot on and has allowed us to predict and prepare for those times to make the transitions as comfortable as possible for our little guy. Thank you Wonder Weeks you are the best!
Not worth the money 1/5
This is not an “app” it’s a bunch of ripetitive words in every section. You can find all those infos (and more) just googling.
Not what I was hoping for 1/5
I was really excited about this app but once I got it I quickly realized it’s pretty useless. A day by day app would be nice but it goes by leap periods. So basically it has told me nothing helpful so far other than she’ll experience a leap soon. Google is free and offers far more insight than this app.
I don't normally purchase apps but ended up buying this one because many moms recommended it. To second what others have said--it reads horrible and is repetitive in parts. It's almost like it was written in another language and then translated through a computer (only way I can think of how to describe it). Also, many of these milestones are already on a free app I've been using. Not impressed for the price.
No customer service 3/5
I got a new phone and wanted to see if I could re download without having to purchase again. I emailed 3x with no response. Dissappointing.
Confusing app layout... 1/5
My baby was born 3 weeks early and I don’t feel like using his due date is providing accurate information.
I also find the app design confusing as far as layout and information.
So helpful! 5/5
It’s a paid app, but in my opinion, it’s well worth it. It lets the user know when each leap in development is happening, and describes in depth the signs, the moods, and the new abilities. It even suggests games to play with your baby that are appropriate for each development phase. It has really helped me identify when my baby is approaching or actively going through something, and prepare for behavioral and mood changes that accompany it.
BEST $3 you will EVER spend! 5/5
This is the most accurate, most reassuring app I have ever purchased. It brings me so much sanity knowing that these leaps and fussy periods are apart of the growth spurt and knowing what to expect.
Don’t waste your time 1/5
It crashes ALL THE TIME!!! Don’t even bother!
So helpful! 5/5
For me, hearing “sometimes they just cry for no reason!” isn’t good enough for me. I want to know why!
This app really has helped me to understand and sympathize with my baby when he is going through something life changing that I otherwise wouldn’t know he was experiencing.
On harder days, it’s much easier to give my little one extra grace when I know that he isn’t just “crying because babies cry!” But Instead because he is going through a major developmental leap. This app helps to explain that!
Wish I had this for baby one! 5/5
Seriously this app and the books, have made understanding baby #2 so much easier! I love the fact that it gives me ideas to entertain baby for the current state of development- and to know when the “hard” times are on the brink of being calm for a while ! I recommend this to all moms new and pros ;)
Helpful but drawback 3/5
Love the app and all the information it provides. But I just wish I had the ability to mark when ( I think) my child had started the leap. Keep my own timetable.
So the leaps and descriptions are more or less accurate but as far as the app... well it stinks. The content is hard to read because it doesn’t flow. Most paragraphs start with the same 3 sentences (especially the 3rd leap), many spelling errors, and hard to navigate. I️ would call it amateur. I️ would expect this in a free app but not one you pay this much for.
Constant crashing and freezing 1/5
I love this app, it’s so accurate and helps me help my son and all my daycare kids through their leaps. It was great until the last update, which now constantly crashes and freezes and then when it finally does open it freezes and crashes. The worst. Maybe it wouldn’t be so bad if the new layout wasn’t so much more clunky and busy looking.
