How?
 • To sign up, from your cell phone simply
    Text BABY (BEBE para Espanol) to 511411
You can stay active until the newborn celebrates his first birthday!  You can cancel at any time. 
 
 Or, Sign up online by going to text4baby.org
 
Why?
More than 500,000 babies are born prematurely, and 28,000 children die before their first birthday in the US.  So that babies can be  born healthy and remain healthy! Text4baby sends:
• tips for the mother’s health timed to the exact week of the pregnancy
• health tips for caring for the infant  timed to the baby’s age
• information on recalls on infant products
 
Who?
Individuals: Text4baby is designed for pregnant women, fathers-to-be, and parents of newborns. Grandparents and child care givers can sign up too! They can provide more support for the mom-to-be or the new mom with information and resources on taking care of their bundle of joy!

Communities: The national Text4baby Coalition has engaged many community partners to help promote the service to local families. The local Kane County Text4baby partners  are: the All Our Kids Early Childhood Network, the Kane County Perinatal Committee, the  Kane County Circles of Wise Women-Aurora & Elgin, and the Kane County Health Department.
