If you’re pregnant or have a baby under age one, you can sign up for FREE health and safety tips sent to you via text message through a program called text4baby. Just text the word BABY (or BEBE in Spanish) to the number 511411 using your cell phone now to sign up! With text4baby, you’ll receive three text messages each week, timed to your due date or baby’s birthday. Messages start in pregnancy and go through your baby’s first year. You’ll get tips and reminders on prenatal and infant care, immunization, labor signs and symptoms, development milestones, breastfeeding, car seat safety, safe sleep, and more.
Sound too good to be true? It’s not! Thanks to the support ofCTIA – The Wireless Foundation and participating cell phone companies, all the messages you receive from text4baby are free! Even if you don’t have a text messaging plan, you can get these messages for free. If you have limited texting per month, text4baby won’t take away from your total amount of messages. Text4baby was founded by a number of organizations, including the non-profit National Healthy Mothers, Healthy Babies Coalition, Founding Sponsor Johnson & Johnson, Voxiva, Grey Healthcare Group, and the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services.
