About Dr. Frans Plooij and The Wonder Weeks:
For the past 35 years, his team have studied the development of babies and the way mothers and other caregivers respond to their changes. Research was done in homes, where they observed the daily activities of mothers and children.
From the research, they are now able to predict, almost to the week, when parents can expect their babies to go through one of these “fussy phases.” During these periods, a baby cries for a good reason. She is suddenly undergoing drastic changes in her development, which are upsetting to her.
These changes enable the baby to learn many new skills and should therefore be a reason for celebration. After all, it’s a sign that she is making wonderful progress. But as far as the baby is concerned, these changes are bewildering.
