The Wonder Weeks Positive Reviews
Great knowledge for any parentI am a second time mother so I should know it all right? Wrong. My first is 10 and when he was a baby we didn’t have apps like this. It’s fascinating to read about the reasons behind your baby’s behaviors and also by knowing why your baby is behaving a certain way you can help them through all of their little growth spirts, while also helping yourself. Because let’s face it all parents wonder if their doing a good enough job so when baby is having an especially rough day we all say what am I doing wrong? Well with the Wonder Weeks it sometimes tells you, no you aren’t doing wrong your baby is making a “leap” that affects their mood, sleep, behavior, etc... and how to help them and yourself have an easier go of it. What I love also is it tells you when the “leap” should be over which really gets me through the tough times. I recommend this app to every mother or father who wants to know more about what’s going on in that sweet little head and also wants great expert advice on how to help your little ones along..Version: 9.1
Good app, update threw me offThe leap schedule alone is def worth the $4, the sanity it gives is priceless. Knowing that the stormy period will come to an end and your baby will go back to the sweet angel they once were is such a relief! I found that to be the most helpful and useful part of the ap. Leap 4 was awful but it ended exactly on the day it said it would. We were both about to loose our minds.
Im a first time parent and the ap updated just before leap 5, i like the new look and format but not the the interactive parts. Like other reviewers the diary part is not useful, I really don't have time for that. Much preferred the previous way clicking off each task when accomplished. Im often interrupted and like being able to pick up where left off.
Developer, please can you double check the skills? Leap 6 says baby will ASK someone to sing a song & understand the names of animals.. baby is not close to being that verbal.. im wondering if something glitched. Also I tried to use the nap tracker and its more trouble than its worth. Have to be able to pick up where i left off, not enter start and end at once.. or all naps. I tried to do it as the day went and it didnt add the total time together. i can barely remember how many time i fed baby last night. Please make things as simple as possible, my brain capacity is limited to most crucial items or not at all..Version: 10.4
Great-Makes you want moreThis 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..Version: 7.1
One Helpful FeatureI appreciate this app mostly because of the calendar view, which tells you when your child will be going through a leap. I find that helpful. However, with the recent update, it has turned into a muddled mess of information, most of which doesn’t make much sense. Yes, it’s supposed to go hand in hand with the book, but surely they could have designed it in a way so that it is at least understandable without the book.
The check lists aren’t very helpful to me because they’re just restating the fact that your kid is going to be grumpy and clingy during a leap. That information is already found under the What Are Leaps tab. It’s difficult to really pinpoint the problem with the app, but as another reviewer said, I think it could be summed up as too much redundancy. Everything is stated multiple times but none of it is intuitive or user friendly.
I like the idea of this app and I hope they will be able to simplify it a bit to make it useful. Otherwise I’ll probably just delete it..Version: 10.4
An Essential Baby AppEspecially when the child is your first, like ours, this little app is like having a pocket manual for your baby. It is especially useful when little one becomes inexplicably fussier. Why? Well, according to the Wonder Weeks (which is based on evidence-based medical science), this is usually because your child is going through one of the many ‘leaps’ of childhood. The app was incredibly accurate in predicting when (indicated by a rain cloud icon) our sweet one suddenly because much more sour. Knowing this was itself helpful since parents armed with this knowledge can fortify their emotional defenses in preparation. While some baby apps are fun - but do little in the way of informing parents - The Wonder Weeks stands out as the rare outlier which both satisfies our curiosity while respecting that our time for doing so is quite limited after baby’s arrival. I highly recommend it..Version: 8.0.1
No wonder everyone loves this app!This app has been more than just a resource for what skills my baby is developing but it gives me peace of mind knowing when he is having a more difficult time than usual that it is of no fault of my own. It’s safe to say most parents’ natural instinct is to make sure their baby is happy and healthy. This app lays out the when the tough transitions occur, for how long, the signals to look for that they are going through the leap, and the skills they are developing and may choose to show after. My husband makes fun of me but I love this app because it’s sooo informative and it helps me to give grace to my baby and me during fussy times that I otherwise may think he was sick or something was wrong. Thank you wonder weeks for putting together such concise and helpful tips & info all in one incredible app..Version: 10.2
My #1 suggested apps for caregivers of babies!This app is SO WONDERFUL! As a mom of littles it can feel like a full time job guessing their needs before they can talk. This app brings a whole new level of understanding. Not only do I NOT think my kids are teething/and or sleep regressing all the time anymore but I now have this beautiful window into what they are experiencing. I wonder less “what are they thinking?” and instead see very specific changes like “she sees the contrast in these blinds, or “she’s categorizing this pattern in my face!”
The book it is based on is so wonderful I highly recommend it. BUT this app stands alone. You need not read the book to benefit. The transition periods called “leaps” are specifically applied to your child down to the day. Plus there is a space to record in detail how your child handles each “leap.” I’ve found that even observation skills as a parent are benefited!
I have never gifted an app other than this one. It seems a strange thing to give an app but it’s such a help to parents, especially new ones, that I can’t recommend it enough!
Not just for mother’s! Fathers, grandparents, caregivers, ANYONE actively involved in a babies life can benefit..Version: 9.0.3
But the app, not the subscriptionThe app is great, very helpful even with my third baby. But the additional features at $2.99/month are not worth it and should just be included in the app itself. Unless you’re going to use the monitor feature, which seems cool if you haven’t actually bought a baby monitor, the other extras are marginal added value. The white noise was alluring but not functionally useful because they run for only a few minutes and then stop. Even if you click the “continual sound” option, it pauses briefly every few minutes and then restarts- which wakes both me and the baby due to the absence of what should be helpful white noise!!
It’s nice to have the audio book in the extras, but I chose the app over the book for a reason and could get it from the library for free or from Audible for less than $2.99/month..Version: 9.1
I wanted to like thisI had been using for the past few weeks and really liked. Then today I tried updating the diary and it crashed every time I tried to save. I restarted my phone and then tried deleting the app so I could restart. It completely wiped everything I had been documenting for the past two weeks. I don’t even feel like starting over I’m so upset. I also hate that every time I took notes in the diary it would move me to the top of the page instead of where I left off. The napping page if you moved your finger the slightest bit just moved you to the next page so you had to start all over if you didn’t get the time right. The leaps have been somewhat accurate but I don’t know that it’s worth the $4. And now that all my data and memories from those two weeks are gone I don’t think I’ll continue using. Very disappointed..Version: 10.4
ConfusedI really like this app and would probably recommend it, but I’m a little confused. Why does it say for example a child has started a leap, specifically a leap that will start at 26 weeks when the child is only 22 weeks? I used my due date, but it’s like the chart start dates and the actual text content are not aligned. The same thing happened with the previous leap and it’s very confusing. Has she started the leap or is she going to start the leap four weeks from now?? Can anyone help me understand why these are consistently different? I should probably mention my due date and the actual birth are only one day different, so that clearly couldn’t be the reason..Version: 8.0.2
Good Resource, Poorly RedesignedFirst off, I love the wonder weeks for helping explain baby’s behaviors as they grow and go through mental leaps. I love that it tells you what behaviors to typically look for and skills after each leap they master. I used the app with my first baby in 2018 and loved both the information provided as well as the layout of the app. It used to make it very easy to follow along with each leap. I was excited to use it with my second baby now but the new app format is not as user friendly as their old version. It makes it a little harder to follow along and the change in the flow of how the new version is written makes it confusing to keep up. It almost looks like the text was copy-pasted without being formatted. I still like that the calendar is there but miss the old format that was a lot more user friendly..Version: 10.3
Every mom needs this app!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!.Version: 7.2.1
First time mom!As a first time mom, sometimes you're just wondering if you’re doing everything right. Especially when it comes to learning. I didn’t know anything about development leaps! Thanks to a mom of 5 showed me this app. And I’m grateful thankful for that. Now I understand what’s going on and I know how to help her through her leaps and what she should be at least learning.
We’re now in leap 7 and her personality really does change. I am super grateful for this app and would recommend it to my new mommy friends.
Also I love the new update! It has this very clan organized look. But, I really do miss the countdown of how many days are left in her leap and the countdown to her next leap..Version: 10.0
Excellent tool for parents and family membersI am so thankful for this app and the book as well. It’s almost always spot on with timing of leaps and the reminders for parents who feel like they’re going crazy are truly helpful. The info about your baby’s development is great to learn and not something one would know just by spending time with their baby. Now I have a greater understanding of what my infant is going through each week.
The app itself is a great, succinct version of the book but I highly recommend having the book as well. It gives much more color to each area and more detail the app can’t provide..Version: 9.0.3
So much supportI’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..Version: 7.1
Poorly designedThis app has GREAT info but is poorly designed and difficult to navigate. Leap information is hidden under separate areas, areas that can be accessed by multiple ports. Just put ALL the info in one place, instead of sprinkling it several places.
There is also conflicting information that leads to heavy confusion: the front page specifies when the next leap will arrive, and doesn’t change when in that leap. So halfway through leap 4 it still says “Baby does not make the 4th developmental leap just yet”. Why doesn’t the information update as time passes? Seems like an easy fix that would greatly improve user satisfaction.
BUT it does have great info and good tips for managing leaps and encouraging mental development, 3 stars..Version: 9.1
Best kept secretThis App and book changed our lives. We thought something was wrong when our son was going through a leap. I found the app about 3 months into his development. After the app I knew we were just going through the growing stages of life. Now with our second child, our daughter, it is amazing to be able to remember back the different leaps and compare. Before the app, we felt like WE were bad parents. It was a game changer. Like a light switch. You literally were able to take the pressure off of yourself and give yourself a break. And the book is even better. Highly recommend!!.Version: 7.1
A must-have for first time parents!The Wonder Weeks app was a life saver when it came to understanding what my first born was experiencing after being born. Recommended by another mom on a Facebook group after I posted my frustration and disappointment at understanding my child. This has quiet literally saved me from ripping my hair out. What I loved is it puts into perspective what your child is experiencing and made me realize it wasn’t me doing something wrong. Lots of examples of what to look for when a leap is coming, and tips on how to help your baby through the new things they are learning. Thank you...what a life saver!!!.Version: 10.2
MUST HAVE! Great baby shower gift!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..Version: 7.2.1
The most accurate I have found!!I have to say, I rarely will spend anything for an app and this one was referred to me by a child specialist. So I purchased it after I had my last daughter. It was so accurate with mood changes, etc. it was unbelievable!! I also bought the book but I have to admit I haven’t read it yet.
Now we had a boy and it is truly amazing, we were just saying how our son is looking at us differently, today was his first real smile and then I open the app and sure enough, he’s in his first leap!! He was premature so I do go by his due date, and I couldn’t be more pleased!! Thank you!!.Version: 7.3.3
Wish I’d had this for my kids!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!!.Version: 7.1
Very helpfulThe wonder weeks app is super helpful in determining when your baby may be learning new things because as parents it’s easy to confuse when they are learning something vs. when they are exhibiting what they have learned. It gives you tips on what to expect and how to help your baby get the most out of each learning “leap”. It can also help you determine why your baby may be more fussy during a certain period of time and can even help you plan ahead for fussy periods around travel, etc. I definitely recommend this app for new parents!.Version: 10.2
Saved my life and sanityThis app wonder years recommend to all moms first or second child .... it helps you understand child gives you heads up for every phase/ leap so you won’t go insane when baby is fussy screaming and inconsolable at certain times. I found it around 4 months and wish I know about it from birth. ! The apps is better than any class for birth and baby classes could ever teach you !!! I wish someone would have given me this at my baby shower !! So so valuable. Don’t waste another minute and download it even if still pregnant it will save your sanity. !!!.Version: 7.3.3
Sanity saver!!We used this app through out the last 17 months of our sons life from day 1 and it has been spot on! We love knowing what to expect and if we forgot to follow along, our son would remind us with his behavior. He definitely lived up to the ‘fussy periods’ and we’d look at the app and sure enough he’d just progressed into a new leap. So nice to know there is a reason for these swings in mood and to just know what development is occurring so you can help your little one flourish. I recommend this to all of my friends and family who are expecting, if you’re a new parent THIS IS AN ESSENTIAL..Version: 9.0.5
Must Have Parenting App!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!.Version: 7.2.1
AmazingThis app has been very helpful. I recommend the book too! I will read each chapter as the leap nears. Feeling educated about what to expect has helped me maintain my cool. These fussy phases can be challenging but knowing it will come and go helps you relate and empathize with your child, and yourself. It also helps you recognize their new skills. At the end you feel a sense of accomplishment and it truly is bewildering to watch your baby master their skills. Keep in mind it is a guide, not a concrete timeline. My child has gone through a leap early by a few days here or there. Happy reading!.Version: 7.1
This app is a must have!I’ve used this app for 2/3 of my kids and let me tell you it really is so nice to have an explanation for these fussy periods babies go theough! Instead of feeling so frustrated struggling to calm my baby I feel more empathetic knowing baby is experiencing new things with each leap and it gives me a light at the end of the tunnel knowing it will pass in just a few more days. I’ll add tracking baby’s leaps has saved me from unnecessary sea appointments! I almost took my baby in last week but checked the app first and sure enough it was just a leap!.Version: 10.2
Very handyI have an easy baby, great sleeper but whenever he becomes cranky for a stretch of time and has frequent wakings with lots of crying I would refer to the app and sure enough, it’s a leap. I would check between his due date and birth date because it occasionally varied but overall the app predicted every rough spell we experienced. The more I read on the app the more I was prepared for these leaps. It’s not going to solve your rough spells, just help you understand what’s happening in your baby’s development. Now that my son is in the last leap I wish there was more..Version: 9.1
So helpful!As a first time mom with a baby born at the beginning of covid, it’s been hard going at it with very little help. The Wonder Weeks app has been SO beneficial on knowing what to expect as my little one changes and grow developmentally! I can see what the expected changes are and work with my girl to understand those changes. It also helps me know when to expect those “off” days, and know it’s often nothing wrong other than a bad day. I am very appreciative and think all parents should have this app!.Version: 10.2
Love this app!This app has helped reassure me that I’m not crazy during my baby’s especially fussy times. It also helps me see the light at the end of the tunnel. I’ve used it as a resource for both of my boys, and I’d highly recommend it. Everytime I’ve thought to myself, “My baby seems really fussy, I wonder if he’s going through a leap,” I will check the app and sure enough, he is! The app also gives creative ideas for helping get your baby through a leap without either of you feeling too overwhelmed or frustrated..Version: 10.4
The content is great, if you can find itThe content of the app is absolutely great and incredibly valuable. However, it’s a pain to navigate in the app to find it. The ladies in/put while you are on the milestone app are confusing, you have a scrolling screen, why not put all content there if it’s the same topic? Then you have calendar that you can’t zoom in/out. Then there is MOrE section that has some very useful info, but who would ever go there? Then there are statements like, “check out more about blah blah on ABC of leaps page” where is this page? We absolutely love this app for its content, but you can do a better job at organizing the UI..Version: 9.1
Very helpfulI really like this app. It is something that I don’t have to check everyday, but can reference when needed. I find the heads up on leaps very helpful in preparing me and my spouse mentally for a potential rough patch. As well, the explanation of what happens during each leap helps us to understand our child better, and connect with him at the appropriate level for that stage. Very helpful and I recommend the app to all new parent friends!.Version: 8.0.2
Great for first time parentsThe app has been helpful at understanding what’s happening and when to our baby. While every baby is different, knowing what may be coming has been really amazing..Version: 10.4
Great app - using it again for second childGreat app that al parents should download!.Version: 10.2
Old versionThe older version of this app was much easier to read and understand. Do not like the new version..Version: 10.4
Need just a checklist not another baby journalHonestly the app was excellent before. As a new parent it was comforting to know “ok is this new behaviour something to expect” by looking at the signs in the app for guidance.
Now it takes 3-4 steps to create some journal entry for a particular day to get a list.
This redesign is just confusing and tries to be too much. Maybe to improve engagement with the app. Why does this have to be a milestone journal it’s just too much.
If I want to simply look up a list of signs I have to go through 6 steps which are extremely confusing. I have to “add a topic” (what does that even mean) with a type set to skills.
I hope you’d streamline the UI a bit so we get to the info we’d like to see..Version: 10.3
New layoutThe new layout is less straight forward. I rather just have lists of things to look for.Version: 10.3
Good Info, Not User FriendlyThis is app is confusing to use. The leap chart is difficult to decipher. The information, once you figure out where your baby is on their chart is great! Tons of info and it’s very helpful. They recently overhauled the whole layout and design, and I’m afraid to say it didn’t improve much. The developer needs to dumb it down a bit for us in the back..Version: 10.3
Very accurateThis is app has been so helpful with understanding the “stormy” days with developing children. The leap chart is accurate and is a great tool to have..Version: 10.2
Love this appLove the app, I find the update much more user friendly and clean design..Version: 10.2
Ótimo AplicativoConsigo entender o que está acontecendo com minha filha e como agir a cada salto ❤️.Version: 10.1
Life saver!!We absolutely loved having this app at our fingertips for both of our kiddos. Whenever they seemed “off”, we would check and sure enough, they’d be approaching or already right in a “leap”. It was so reassuring as new parents. Lots of great info but easy to navigate..Version: 9.2.2
So accurate!10 months old and this app is still always so accurate, it’s almost scary!.Version: 9.1
So reassuringI can say a lot of stuff that everyone else is saying so I’ll tell an anecdote instead. My 2 month old has been very stand off-ish with my husband lately and he’s been really bummed about it. I tried to tell him that it was normal that she would be clingy to me but I think it didn’t really sink in for him because he thought I was trying to make him feel better. Not a day after we had that conversation, I get an alert that my girl is hitting a leap and one of the defining points was that she would be much more clingy to me and shy with everyone else. I could see a weight lift off of my husband just having that reassurance that this is normal and temporary and happening exactly when it does for just about everyone else. Thank you for making our newly chaotic lives a little bit less anxious..Version: 9.1
Understanding your babyAlthough this app won’t solve your problems, it will help you understand what your baby is going through and give you the encouragement you need to get through the phases. It did wonders (pun intended) for us to expect the worst and look forward to better days. We also knew a little bit better how to approach the different phases..Version: 9.1
Very informativeThis app is great and definitely teaches you a lot. Any time my baby is acting out of sorts I check this app and it almost always lines up. I’ve learned a lot and it’s actually really interesting. Definitely helps you to know what’s going on with your little one and know less fussy days are coming! They also have great customer service... I had an issue with my app and they reached out to offer assistance right away..Version: 9.1
Interesting info, hard to navigateThe UX of this app sucks, I recommend buying the book instead..Version: 9.1
Maybe needs an update?Most times the paragraphs telling you what’s going on with baby is cut off at the bottom and I can’t scroll down to read it. Defeats the purpose of the app. And his leaps add up when I use his birthday, not due date..and even then they are still slightly off..Version: 9.1
