“I am a first time mom, and Text4baby helped me determine questions to ask the doctor during pregnancy and now questions to ask baby’s pediatrician. I love knowing what milestones to expect, and the information about breastfeeding, car seats and other important topics is so helpful. Thanks, Text4baby
Text4baby has been there for me throughout my pregnancy, always with the best advice. I feel so informed thanks to Text4baby. I love Text4baby and would recommend it to everyone I know.
Thank you, Text4baby, for giving our family access to information we might not have known like hotline phone numbers! We look forward to our texts every week describing new milestones and friendly advice!
I’m so thankful I found Text4baby, especially since I had no idea how to raise a baby! All of the important little things that would have never crossed my mind were sent to me through the text messages. Text4baby is so helpful and awesome; I’m glad I found this service!
