Have you ever heard the saying “it all starts in the gut”? It’s true. Your gut health is responsible for your overall health and wellness. As moms, we want to give our babies only the very best and protect them from harm. But have you ever thought about protecting your little one’s gut? I know when I was planning for the birth of our baby, I was busy researching the safest cribs, carseats, you name it but I never thought about baby probiotics and gut health.
The Importance of a Healthy Gut
Our bodies have a mix of tiny microorganisms (bacteria, viruses and yeast) which makes up our microbiome. This microbiome contains healthy bacteria which helps to push out any of the harmful bacteria therefore strengthening our immune systems and aiding in a healthy gut. More and more studies are showing that a healthy gut has been linked to fewer cases of allergies, eczema, obesity and diabetes. But how does one acquire a healthy gut?
Babies acquire their gut health mainly from mom. More specifically, babies acquire a healthy bacteria known as B. Infantis during birth as they pass through the vaginal canal and from breast milk. However, today 9 out of 10 babies are missing this healthy bacteria.
How Evivo Can Help Restore Your Baby’s Microbiome
Evivo is the only probiotic that’s clinically proven to restore baby’s gut and repopulate it with the good bacteria that are missing. During a clinical trial, babies who received Evivo mixed with breast milk had their gut 100% repopulated with healthy bacteria.
Once daily, just mix the contents of one packet with some breastmilk and feed to your baby in the syringe provided.
I wish I had known about Evivo sooner. For those who are new here and may not know our story, Maxwell was born via csection and we struggled with breastfeeding. Had I known about it sooner, I definitely would have used Evivo to help replenish his gut flora. But I must say, we are extremely lucky to have such a healthy, happy baby!

First of all, your little guy is adorable! So happy to hear that he is a happy & healthy 2 yr old now! My little man just turned 1 last month – they get big so quickly don't they?! Like you, I wish I had known above the incredible benefits of Evivo for babies. If I had know I could have started him on it at birth. I hope that your post helps to spread the word so that everyone knows the importance of baby's gut flora!

He's such a sweet baby! I'm a firm believer in probiotics! It's kept our kids super healthy for months at a time and if they do happen to get sick, they get over it quickly.

Probiotics are really helpful whatever brand it is, if you'll have time to review each of them, it often composed of helpful probiotics strains. They are all similar and helps a lot in terms of our gut health.
