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.

    Helped with gas pains
    My daughter had been struggling with gas pains, so much that she’d cry from it hurting so much and it would keep her up half the night grunting and kicking. We tried a different probiotic before starting Evivo, I wish we would have started sooner! Since 10 weeks old (now 15weeks) she’s been on it and no longer has pains, easily passed gas, her BM have decreased from 5/6 to 1 or two a day, and she’s so much happier!

    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!

    Helped Colicky Girl
    This has been a game changer for our colicky little girl. After three days colic improved and after a week she’s been a happier baby. She’s formula fed and goes more regularly then we expected.

    It's helping so far
    We have been using this for about a month and so far it seems to help my newborn. He would grunt and be uncomfortable for 1-2 hours every morning. Since we have started this as soon as I give him the dose he calms down and goes to sleep. I am a believer!

    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!
