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.

Pediatrician

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.

    Good product. Price for starter kit not worth it.
    Glad that this product exists to better the health of my baby. The price for the starter kit is unnecessarily high. It would be better to just purchase the refill and get yourself a dropper from a drug store. The milk can be mixed in the pouch. In addition, it isn’t necessary to make the mixture watery. You can just put a few drops of breast milk and create a paste. Use your finger to give it to baby.

    It Works!!
    This has made a tremendous difference in my granddaughter’s health. She was a preemie, one month early. She had problems “pooping”.and was very fuzzy. After about 7 days on Evivo she “started “ regular bowel movements. She became a happy thriving baby

    Helped with gas and soupy poops
    We saw a definite improvement within a few days of starting! Very quickly, our baby’s bowel movements became less liquid and less frequent; at one point, they went seven days between one poop and the next, but then they settled down into a once every 1-3 days routine (it had previously been around 3-5 poops a day). They definitely started sleeping better, though it’s hard to say whether that’s the Evivo or me eliminating dairy from my diet at the same time. Either way, their digestive tract was obviously doing much better! I totally flaked on re-ordering, and they started to have somewhat more soupy and frequent poops within a week of stopping, along with more nighttime fart attacks, but things rapidly went back to the new normal after the refill of Evivo arrived. I have no idea if it will help with their longer-term health, but it’s 100% worth it just for the improved sleep and digestion.

    Evivo probiotic for baby
    We started using your probiotic when our baby was 11/2 months old. So we are just about to complete the first month. He was very gassy, in pain and starting to go a few days without going to the bathroom. Since starting Evivo he is at least pooping once every two days, but is still gassy and in pain at times. The gas smells horrible which I assume is from the fermentation in the probiotic. I know most newborn breastfed babies have this problem with gas and pooping so I’m not worried about it. Truthfully I was hoping for a little better response to it from him for $80 a month. But it’s a probiotic not a miracle so I’m not that disappointed as every body reacts differently to things. I am going to stick it out for one more month to see if maybe it needs longer to help more. But if I still don’t see a difference I will probably switch to an organic baby probiotic from my local health food store for a quarter of the price.

    Baby is doing great with it! He has no trouble with the taste, his poop consistency is much better (both in terms of frequency and texture!), and it’s super easy to administer. Highly recommended for long term health benefits.

    Supply Chain/Quality Assurance Issue
    I ordered Evivo around Christmas right before my son turned five months old. He was born via C-Section almost one month early, so I wanted to make sure that he has everything he needs to set him up for a long and healthy life. Although he seems to be spitting up less since taking the Evivo, I am personally frustrated because this product is not cheap, it is meant to be an investment in my child’s health, and so far I have opened four packets with absolutely NO product inside of them. I opened the second box I ordered today, and it already has two packets with NO product. I order/buy things for myself and the baby all the time, and have never experienced an issue like this before from a reputable company. I shouldn’t have to keep contacting customer service every time I place an order to ensure I get a good customer experience. I don’t think I will be ordering Evivo again. I will be looking up alternatives for my son’s gut health especially as he gets older.

    Give it a try
    We weren’t trying Evivo for any specific reason other than believing in probiotics for gut health. I like administering the single dose packets mixed with breastmilk better than the oil based drops. No big/noticeable difference but will be sticking with the product.

    My baby's health has skyrocketed since Evivo
    I have a 6 month (4 months adjusted) old who was born 8 weeks early weighing in at 3 pounds 7 oz and spent 6 weeks in the NICU. She came home with instructions to add some special formula to her bottles of my pumped breast milk to help her gain weight. Unfortunately she’d spit up every time we have her the formula which I already wasn’t too keen on since it contained soy and corn syrup solids, but the spitting up also made it counter productive to its actual use for her. I found these probiotics and discontinued the formula to try this instead to focus on her gut heath (which I know is important as all health starts in the gut) and within a week, she gained weight 3x as fast as she did when she had taken the formula additive. I have a baby scale so was watching it shoot up wondering if something was wrong with my scale. Fortunately, it was spot on! I started these not expecting results right away but the pictures from one week to the next were amazing since she was flesh and bones in one and finally had dimples in her elbows in the other. She has been on these for 3 months now (rarely spits up now) and is only two pounds smaller than her fully termed cousin who is 7 months old! This little girl is doing so well she is now wearing 6-9 month clothes when she should technically be a size smaller for her adjusted age. I will also note her daddy came home with the flu after Thanksgiving. She can’t have a flu shot so I’ve been dreading the day she was exposed to it. She only ended up with a slight fever of 99.9° for less than a day and hardly had any coughing. I believe this and the vitamin c I had given her as soon as her daddy got sick made all the difference! So to say the least, I’m incredibly impressed and writing this review to get my coupon to use on my next order. If you’re concerned about the price, I justify it by the fact I’m not paying anything for formula and I know I’m saving money not having to take her to the doctor to treat the flu! So it’s totally worth the investment in my opinion.
