Babies don’t come with instruction manuals. The Kit for New Parents is a resource that includes everything from practical advice on prenatal care to information on a child’s first years. If your agency would like to distribute the kit, contact us.

There are many fantastic, yet underutilized resources available to pregnant and parenting families. First 5 Butte County is promoting two of them; text4baby and the National Parents Helpline. If you would like materials to help promote these resources, contact us.
