TEXT4BABY - JUNE 28, 2016
June 28, 2016
With the 4th of July right around the corner, we would like to highlight a ZERO TO THREE(ZTT) resource created specifically for military families with young children. The Military Family Project (MFP) works to increase awareness and collaboration throughout the military community so that parents and professionals can more effectively care for very young children and their families. Available resources on their page include videos, articles, children's books, and even an app, that cover topics such as deployment, reunification, relocation, and staying connected when separated physically.
Text4baby can be a useful tool for military families, particularly since many military spouses, especially moms, can sometimes feel isolated and in need of support. Text4baby provides a free, simple way for these families to get the health and safety information they need during their pregnancies and baby's first year, as well as the support and resources we provide.
Remember to share these resources with the military families you work with, and have a fun and safe Independence Day!
The Text4baby Team
So much more is known now than a generation ago about how and when brain architecture is built and how deeply it is influenced by early connections and experiences. The first 1,000 days is the time of greatest opportunity and highest risk. That's why ZERO TO THREE, with the support and collaboration of the Bezos Family Foundation, undertook a comprehensive research effort that included a series of in-home discussions and a national parent survey. We went directly to parents of young children - largely millennials and Generation X mothers and fathers - to gain a clear and in-depth understanding about the challenges they face, the help they seek, and how satisfied they are with the support and information they currently receive.

Quote of the Week
"I signed up for Text4baby when I found out I was pregnant in February 2012. The messages I received throughout my pregnancy were very informative. My son Braydon was born on October 24, 2012 and I am happy to continue to receive messages that are now tailored to his age and development. I especially appreciate the supportive messages that are sent to encourage new mothers. I truly enjoy participating in this helpful program. Thank you so much for this wonderful resource!"
