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.

    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!

    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.

    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.

    We love it!
    Evivo has made a huge difference in our daughter’s belly health! Before using this product she was having 6-8 gassy stools a day, along with a bad diaper rash. She was super fussy and seemed miserable with her bloated belly. We noticed an improvement within 3 days of giving Evivo to her. So relieved to have found a product that helps her!

    It works!
    Our newborn son suffered from constant gas, had 5-7 bowel movement’s a day, and was diagnosed with silent reflux. At two months our pediatrician recommended we try Evivo and after two using the two samples the office gave us, we promptly ordered a month supply. We found it quickly eliminated the gas and drastically reduced the number of bowel movements to 1-2 daily. It has also helped with the silent reflux, though we continue to also use medication to treat. This is a probiotic I recommend to all my mom friends and tell them it’s worth every penny! We will continue to buy Evivo to support our son’s gut health.

    Life changing for baby!
    After I had taken an antibiotic for Mastitis, my son was no longer the easy going baby he was for the first month. He was now constantly fussy, gassy and no longer sleeping well. He stopped having full bowel movements, instead he would just have a little smear in his diaper EVERY single time I changed his diaper which was giving him a bad diaper rash. The antibiotics had messed with his gut health. After just one day of being on Evivo his gas improved and he had the biggest poop of his life. You could tell he was feeling so much better. He is back to being our happy go lucky baby!

    We just started Evivo and I am SO impressed with this company, my experience with them so far has been above and beyond. I trust them 100% with my babies gut health and am so excited to be able to offer my baby additional health benefits like this for her gut, something I never took into account before.

    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.
