New York, NY, March 07, 2011 --(PR.com
)-- The Wonder Weeks is making reassurance and peace-of-mind easier – and less expensive - for the new parents of the estimated 4 million babies born every year in the United States.
Beginning Monday, March 7, 2011 through Sunday, March 27, 2011, new parents can take advantage of a limited-time offer direct from the worldwide bestselling book’s author, Frans Plooij, Ph.D. For the first time, U.S.-based customers can log onto the book’s website, www.thewonderweeks.com
to buy their copy of The Wonder Weeks for $20 per copy, including tax, shipping and handling -- an almost 35 percent discount off the regular price.
According to Plooij, one of the world’s top specialists in infant/child development and parent-baby interactions and featured expert/blogger on ModernMom.com, “These days, with finances being what they are, we know that new parents sometimes have to make hard decisions about what they can and will afford to get. We decided to make it easier and, in some cases, more attainable for new moms to get their copy.”
By not limiting the number of books people can buy at a time, new parents, as well as day care centers, nurseries, doulas and the countless other fans can benefit from Plooij’s sensible advice, which is based on more than 35 years of worldwide research and observation.
The newly extended edition of The Wonder Weeks spells out the miracles happening inside your baby’s brain with detailed information about the first 20 months of mental development, from the critical first mental developmental leap at 5-weeks-old and all the way through the first stages of toddlerhood. With each concurrent leap in the mental development, Plooij suggests the best games and ways to interact with your baby to make the most of his new skill set.
Unlike many other parenting books, The Wonder Weeks doesn’t tell parents how to raise their children. Instead, it offers suggestions and advice on how use the predictable, and inevitable, leaps forward – often characterized by fussy and clingy behavior – to stimulate your baby’s mental development.
Millions of new moms around the world have come to depend on The Wonder Weeks, calling it an indispensable guide to what’s happening in their baby’s brain. “The more we can help new parents know what and when to expect sometimes radical changes in their baby’s behavior,” says Plooij, “the more joyful and satisfying their parenting experience will be for both them and their baby.”

About The Wonder Weeks:
Based on extensive scientific research, The Wonder Weeks
describes in easy-to-understand terms the 10 major leaps in their mental development that all babies go through during their first 20 months. Each leap affects not only their mood, but also their health, intelligence, sleeping patterns and the “three C’s” -- Crying, Clinging and Crankiness.
Using the book as a guide, parents can be better prepared – often within a week or two – when to expect the difficult behavior that marks a new change in their baby’s mental development. The Wonder Weeks provides:
· A phase-by-phase guide to baby’s behavior
· An explanation of the markers for the “three C’s” and how to react
· Fun games and gentle activities parents can do with their baby to guide them through their “leap”
· A description of the baby’s perspective on the world around him and how it can help parents understand the changes he’s going through
