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.

    Excellent Product
    I use this product for my 3 1/2 month due to her gassiness and excessive spitting up. She seems to be much less gassy, still spitting up but less frequently. While it is an expensive product, I think it is worth it, especially to help my daughter's gut health get off to the best start possible. I will continue to use it as long as I can afford to!

    Lifesaver for Gassy Babies
    4 weeks after my daughter was born, I caught an upper respiratory infection. My antibiotics wiped out her intestinal flora and she went from mostly happy to fussy and crying often. Within 2 days of giving her Evivo, she calmed down. Everyone remarks on how chill and happy she is and I believe it’s thanks in part to Evivo! She also went from pooping a little bit a few times a day to having one major poop every 2 or so days. I definitely recommend Evivo to every new mom. It’s an investment in your baby’s health and happiness!

    Diaper rash disappeared, fewer BMs
    My newborn was having frequent small BMs, like 5 a day. After a few days of evivo he changed to having one larger stool every few days. His diaper rash also disappeared. Since I had antibiotics during labor, I’m glad to know I am renewing my sons gut health.

    So far so good
    My husband and I are firm believers in maintaining good gut health so when I had to be put on antibiotics after having our son, my concern was how my son’s gut health would be affected while taking them. We ordered Evivo and it came very fast and is pretty easy to administer. At the same time that I was taking the antibiotics, my son broke out in baby acne. I don’t know if the two are related but his acne slowly cleared after giving him Evivo. I’m not sure if I can tell any other noticeable differences while he’s been taking Evivo but I’m trusting that the Evivo is working to help him maintain a healthy gut flora.

    First time using Evivo, highly recommend for baby's gut health!
    Excellent produce with good data backing it. One improvement could be made in the reduced use of packaging. Otherwise great!

    Every baby needs a probiotic, so why not use the best?
    Great experience with Evivo. Baby takes it without any problem, helps with fussiness and general health.

    Very thankful for this product!
    We started using Evivo when my daughter was 3 weeks old. She wasn't experiencing any issues but we thought why not give her the best chances of health from basically the beginning. And we have been thrilled with the results. She is a dream baby, she has slept through the night since 6 weeks old. She hasn't been to the doctor other than a wellness check and she was born in the winter in Montana so we were inside mostly while she was young and there are always sicknesses going around. We also are social and she went everywhere with us. She started daycare at 6 months and I thought for sure she would have gotten sick but so far so good. Also, she is just a very happy baby, she rarely sips ups, hasn't had digestive issues and just seems very comfortable all the time. We are expecting baby number 2 in January and we will be giving her Evivo from day one. We feel so lucky to have found this product and for our healthy and happy babies!

    I'm a believer!
    I've been using evivo with my 5 month old for about 2 weeks and I've definitely seen a difference in his sleep and with his skin. I bought it after a long few weeks of sleepless nights due to some bad gas. I had seen ads for evivo and after some research felt the overall health benefits would be worth it even if sleep didn't improve. Thankfully, sleep has improved. He still gets up during the night, but his comfort level in general is much better. His eczema, while still there, has also vastly improved. I'm definitely buying more.

    No more watery diapers and diaper rash!
    My son was flying through diapers in his first month of life as he pooped pretty much anytime he had gas (so constantly) and developed a diaper rash that led us to change him frequently. We are down to just 5 or 6 total diapers a day, which is normal for his age (2 months now!) It's so much less work than constantly changing poopy diapers, the consistency of which is now normal, and obviously led to the disappearance of his diaper rash. Thanks for saving us on diapers and wipes and helping our son achieve greater gut health!

    A Worthy Challenge
    I am a firm believer in the value of creating good gut health for myself and partner and it makes sense, as well, for our precious baby. Syringe feeding = no fun, but we have been using the fridababy medicine pacifier/syringe with great success. Our son does not like the flavor and cringes, but doesn't spit it up (anymore - first few doses he did and we weren't sure this would work for us). I always remind him that mommy would only do what's best for his health and his tummy will feel better because of this. He's 2 months so I'm sure he has zero clue what I'm saying, but he does take it all down! I don't know if Evivo is why he is less gassy or just that he is growing out of it, but I am definitely going to continue giving him what I feel is the best shot at a healthy gut. Plus he has been sleeping 7-9hours a night and I'm not willing to change anything or rock the boat!
