My daughter is eight months old. She’s growing quickly! I didn’t sign up for text4baby until after I gave birth, when I saw text4baby information in the hospital. I thought to myself, “I can do this, it’s easy because my phone is always with me and I can let the information come to me.” I welcome anything I get for free after having my daughter! Everything is so expensive now, so that was definitely an incentive to sign up for the service.

It is really helpful to get the text messages about what to do, what to ask my doctor, and getting messages about emotional feelings postpartum, which helps as a source of support. For example, one very helpful text message was about what stage your child should be in, which helped me not to push her too much and to know what to expect. Another really helpful message was about putting your baby on their tummy to help them gain strength in their neck, so I made sure to do this often. If you use text4baby, you’re going to have a resource to help you understand what to expect. It’s going to give you phone numbers for whatever decision you need to make for your baby. I’ve been using it all the time and it’s helped me, and it’s going to help you.
