Is baby gut health really just gut health for babies? 

Gut health is important for everyone, but did you know that baby gut health is even more important? That’s right, mom. Between the ages of brand-spanking newborn and 6 months old, baby gut health is especially critical because that’s when baby’s immune system and metabolism are in key developmental stages. What you do—or don’t do—to boost gut health in your newborn’s first 6 months starts your baby on the right path for the rest of their life.

Baby gut health starts at zero.


Your baby is born without gut bacteria. The first bacteria they receive for their own gut microbiome is at birth, from you, Mom. Back in the day, a strong baby gut was largely due to the good bacteria, B. infantis, that mothers passed on to their babies during childbirth. The good bacteria, B. infantis, crowded out the bad bacteria, ensuring that bad bacteria were outnumbered. And babies would grow up with the right baby gut microbiome and good baby gut health to cultivate a stronger immune system and metabolism from day one.  

So, what’s happened to change all that? Over time, due to modern medical practices like the increased use of antibiotics and C-sections, the beneficial gut bacteria, B. infantis, has slowly disappeared. Moms who didn’t receive it at birth were unable to pass it on to their babies, and this deficit continued through generations. Babies were left with decreased gut protection and a gut filled with bad bacteria. Today, nine out of ten babies don’t acquire B. infantis at birth. And that’s not good.

A chance to restore baby gut health.


The lack of the good bacteria B. infantis in baby’s gut means bad bacteria are able to thrive. Higher levels of bad gut bacteria are linked to increased risk of colic, allergies, eczema, diabetes, and obesity. So, to improve baby gut health, scientists at the University of California, Davis discovered that the reintroduction of B. infantis to baby’s gut can greatly reduce the amount of bad bacteria in baby’s gut. B. infantis was able to digest special nutrients found in breast milk which allowed the B. infantis to thrive. The quick and steady growth of this good bacteria crowded out bad bacteria! Scientists showed that B. infantis can reduce bad bacteria in baby’s gut by 80% and restore baby gut health to its original state, how Mother Nature has always wanted it to be—healthy and strong.

    Awesome
    Evivo has helped our daughter with gas pains, sleep, and diaper rash. We stopped using it for about a week and quickly decided to buy more! Evivo has made a drastic difference in our baby’s health!

    A product I believe in
    Although our little one didn't seem to have issues with gas, she did spit up a lot. I wish I would have tried this product earlier on as I did not start it until she was almost 5 months old (cost was a big issue for us). Her spitting up does seem to have lessened (is it the product vs her outgrowing it?) and her eczema does seem to be better. However, given the clinical research and findings behind this product, I will continue to give my daughter this product as my son unfortunately suffers from allergies, eczema, and asthma (he was a c-section formula fed baby) and I wish SO badly I had known then what I know now in the importance of good gut health for babies!! Thank you Evivo for your extensive research and helping us parents with one less thing to worry about!

    Best decision
    Purchasing evivo for our newborn was one of the best decisions we made for her. She has been taking evivo since she was 5 days old. It feels good to know we are setting her up for good gut health for the rest of her life.

    i think it's helping
    I think its helping. My 2 month old had rough, scaly eczema on her cheeks that would flare up with every feed. she was also having a poopy diaper every single change and sometimes even more often. i cut out the most common allergens from MY diet and started Evivo. her skin is 98% better now and less poopy diapers. she sleeps great, too....less discomfort i think

    Evivo has really helped my
    Evivo has really helped my son digest breast milk. He is no longer crying at night or during the day from stomach pains, and has less gas. At 3 months old, he is now sleeping around 10 hours at night and only waking up once. I plan on keeping him on Evivo as long as he is on breastmilk. Thankful for a good probiotic to help his establish a healthy gut flora so young.

    Excellent product!!
    I'm already a firm believer of "gut" health effecting all aspects of overall health. My sweet baby girl is now 3 1/2 months. At about 4 weeks she started to develop eczema on her cheeks, a diaper rash that just wouldn't go away and a slight touch of colic,. All 3 a first for me as a mother of 4 kiddos. I ordered her some Evivo and within days, these issues starting clearing up. Because of some financial issies, I haven't been able to order her anymore until now. Needless to say, her eczema and diaper rash have returned while she's been off Evivo. I'm confident that when we receive our order in a few days, these issues will improve again. Planning on keeping her on Evivo until I'm done nursing her.

    Helpful probiotic
    I bought this product b/c my now 2 month old EBF baby had a horrible diaper rash, was having frequent liquid stools at almost every diaper change and was very gassy. After one day of using Evivo my baby’s stool was thicker than it had been, which was an improvement and she slept longer stretches that night! Then a few more days of use she was having less frequent stools! It did make her more gassy it seemed initially, but then it did seem to decrease the gassiness some. The probiotic does have a funny smell, and seems like it would taste bad, but my baby just drinks it right up in her breast milk and she doesn’t seem to mind the way it taste, so that’s good. I do feel like it gives her stool a funny smell, like the way the probiotic smells almost, but that’s not a big deal. I do 10 mL breast milk with it instead of 5 though b/c the powder dissolves better and is less gritty in the milk that way, which makes her drink it better. I use one of the medicine dispensers with a nipple on it and she drinks it right up, easier than using the syringe, but the syringe helps mix the probiotic in the milk. Overall I think the product is worth the money!
