Resources for Parents
Do you know someone who’s pregnant or recently had a baby? Maybe that someone is you?
Sign up for a Welcome Baby Bag! It’s simple, it’s free…and it’s filled with all sorts of goodies for the new baby and their family: books, bookmarks and stickers, early literacy information…and more!
Stop by or call (262) 728-3111, x117 for more information.
Ready to sign up? Stop by the Children’s Desk! (Please note, each bag is customized for the family, so it’ll be a few days after the form has been submitted for the bag to be ready for pick up.)
For information about your child’s development and what to do if you have a concern, www.actearly.wisc.edu is an excellent resource. Not only will they provide information about resources available to you locally, but you can also learn more about your child’s developmental milestones. If you have any concerns about your child—developmentally or otherwise—be sure to talk with your child’s doctor.
If you’re pregnant or have a baby under one year, you can sign up to receive free text messages on prenatal care, infant care, and more through text4baby, a free service offered by the National Healthy Mothers, Healthy Babies Coalition and the FDA Office of Women’s Health.
