Get Free Expert Newborn Advice Over Text 

We're here for anyone who cares for a child, prenatally through age 8: parents, parents-to-be, grandparents, babysitters, aunties/uncles, neighbors, friends, teachers, and more.

We send free text messages with conversation starters, bonding activities, games to boost brain development, social-emotional development tips, and much more. Our messages come from trusted partners like PBS KIDS.

Easy Sign Up

We only ask for your child's birth date and zip code. That way, you'll get messages timed to their exact age and information about events and resources near you. We will never share your info! Bright by Text is completely free, but message and data rates may apply.

Signing up is as simple as 1..2..3!

Parents love our just-in-time tips…

“Bright By Text is wonderful...

The information appears right on time. I’ll be wanting to know something or trying to figure out something and whoop, there it is. A helpful tip in my text messages!”

“You guys are wonderful...

with support and advice that is always very helpful. Thank you for your great ideas and articles!”

“I honestly get a little emotional when I get an encouraging text from y’all.

I want you to know that it means a lot. It is powerful. Thank you. You make a big difference in my life.”

Because kids don't come with instructions.
