Parenting can be hard. Bright by Text is there for you with parenting tips, resources, and activities to make it easier and more fun.
Bright by Text currently delivers free learning games, parenting tips, and resources to over 10,500 parents and caregivers of children under 5 in Colorado. Its new prenatal program will now reach families who are expecting as well! Bright by Three and its partners have added 18 new messages to Bright by Text just for them.
The new prenatal messages provide tips, information, and resources about mental and physical health during pregnancy, helping baby develop, preparing for baby, labor and delivery, and more.
Once baby is born, Bright by Text will continue to deliver 3-5 weekly text messages targeted to the age of a child, up to age five. Bright by Three partners with many organizations, including Delta Dental of Colorado Foundation and their Cavities Get Around campaign, to provide a variety of helpful information. For instance, from Bright by Text’s partnership with DDCOF, a text could teach how to care for your baby’s gums while breastfeeding.
Messages also include topics such as:
- Health, safety, and nutrition
- Prenatal wellness and reducing stress
- Brain development, language, and literacy
- Social-emotional development
- Developmental milestones
All Bright by Text messages direct to a landing page with more information and further resources.
