While babies are growing, there is often a phase they go through, where they suddenly take a leap in development. A mental leap is what it is referred to as and it can be quite overwhelming for babies to go through without any tlc or comfort from their parents. The world is opening up to them and when they have a mental leap, they are now much more aware of parts of the world that they weren’t before, and it can be very overwhelming and frustrating.
- Mental leaps are known as rapid changes that occur in your babies development.
- This leap can be quite overwhelming for the baby and can lead to fussiness and frustration.
- The brain can suddenly perceive things that it couldn’t before, and that could explain why it can be overwhelming.
“However, if mental leaps do occur as described in The Wonder Weeks, then they could be a potentially major experience for the baby.”
