The three C’s:
For 35 years, we have been studying interactions between mothers and babies. We have documented—in objective observations, from personal records, and on videotape—the times at which mothers report their babies to be “difficult.” These difficult periods are usually accompanied by the three C’s: Clinginess, Crankiness, and Crying.

Discover your baby’s personality
When you open up to your baby and look for everything he ‘tells you’ with his body language, you get a very good idea of your baby’s personality. By keeping track of which skills your baby chooses after a leap, from among the many new possible skills listed in each section of ‘The Wonder Weeks’, you get an even better picture. Some parents want to check off as many skills as possible. Don’t do this. This is like expecting an athlete to master all possible sports at once. Developing skills takes time and practice.
