When you sign up to Connecting2u, you’ll get weekly texts about keeping your baby safe, happy and healthy. The messages are a great way for parents to learn about their new baby. Anyone caring for your baby can also sign up.

Sign up

You’ll get text messages until your child is 5. We’ll send more in the first year when most parents are learning how to care for their new baby. You'll then get weekly messages until your child turns 5.

Messages are available for Mums, Dads and carers.

What your messages will say

The messages will be from your baby to you. They’ll say things like …

  • Books are great!

    I love hearing you read to me. Sometimes you can just tell me about the pictures! It helps me learn words & sounds & builds my brain.

  • My 6 month immunisation

    My 6 month immunisation & health check is due soon. I can now get the flu vaccine for free. Check with 13HEALTH - 13 43 25 84 on where to get my checks done.
