baby poop

The mysterious world of baby poop. Here’s what to look for, Mom.

Baby poop. It’s one of the first clues to understanding your baby’s gut health. A quick check of baby’s diaper can tell you what you need to know. Because what’s showing up there can give you a pretty good read on what’s going on in baby’s gut. 

What’s really going on in baby’s diaper?

Is baby’s poop soft and well-formed? Or is it mushy or watery? Does baby go poop two to three times a day or more like 5-8 times a day? Baby poop can be a mystery, but if you know what to look for, it can help you figure out what’s best for your baby.

If there’s something going on in baby’s gut, the first place to look is in their diaper. The quality of baby’s poop will signal the presence of ‘good’ versus ‘bad’ bacteria in baby’s gut. If your baby has 5 or more watery poops per day, chances are baby’s gut has more bad bacteria than good. When baby’s gut is unable to properly break down nutrients in breast milk, baby can’t absorb them, and all the unused nutrition goes to waste, passing through the system as baby poop.

If baby has fewer, soft and well-formed poops per day, that’s a sign that baby properly digesting and absorbing the nutrients from breast milk. Good for you both! But if baby is missing the good gut bacteria it needs, she is not alone. There are plenty of babies in the U.S. who are also experiencing a lack of good gut bacteria. In fact, nine out of ten babies are missing the good gut bacteria B. infantis. It’s a common occurrence and can be attributed to the wide use of antibiotics and the increasing number of C-sections we have today.

What you can do about it is simple: reintroduce B. infantis to baby’s gut. Evivo is activated B. infantis; it works with breast milk to help your baby absorb the necessary nutrients for optimal nutrition and to help good bacteria to thrive.

In our clinical studies, the babies taking Evivo had, on average, just two to three soft, well-formed baby poops each day. Some had fewer, pooping only every few days. Just two to three, instead of the somewhat continuous five to eight watery ones. That’s the activated probiotic at work.

Evivo is the only baby probiotic clinically proven to restore the important good bacteria, B. infantis, to baby’s gut, and reduce bad bacteria in baby’s gut by 80%. Evivo restores baby’s gut to the state that nature intended and sets up baby for health that can last a lifetime. Ask your pediatrician about it.

    Good service and quality, TBD on results
    Evivo is the real deal - item arrives quickly and insulted to keep it cold. Always skeptical of non-refrigerated probiotics. I know Evivo does SOMETHING, because our baby’s poops went suddenly from 5+ times per day to once every 3 days. Kind of jarring, but customer service assured us it’s totally normal. Still to be determined how it actually helps our baby’s gut, though. He still has gas, spits up a lot, and deals with reflux. Happy with purchase, but just know it’s not a miracle cure. Some babies just have underdeveloped esophaguses, which exacerbates digestive issues.

    Worked until it didn't
    I noticed that this helped with the consistency of my son's poops. They had been very watery and I felt like he wasn't absorbing the nutrients like he should. This improved after a couple of days of the probiotic. But after 3 weeks he was so constipated that he was miserable. He didn't poop and screamed in pain for 5 days. I stopped giving the probiotic and he finally pooped. I don't think I'm going to keep giving it day after day. I may cycle it with other probiotics.

    Life changing
    I can’t recommend Evivo enough! My baby was pooping 8-12 times a day and in terrible pain each time. He was gassy and fussy all day. It was taking all the joy out of being a new mom! Within 3 days of starting Evivo we started to see changes. Our baby was happier, had 3-4 stools a day, less gas, and he even slept better. This was a life changer for us! I recommend Evivo to all my friends with new babies and can’t thank the company enough for making this product. So, so happy my baby is no longer in pain and we can enjoy life together!

    Solved our gas and poop problems
    My 4 week old seemed to have a lot of gas and fussiness and her poop was not the normal breastfed baby poop it was green and smelly. After two days of using evivo her poop is becoming the normal yellow seedy breastfed poop and she is much happier and content. Thank you

    Happy baby!!
    Overall, I have seen a tremendous improvement in my 6 month olds temperament and behavior using Evivo! From about 2 months on he was extremely fussy and uncomfortable surrounding every feeding and sleeping occasion. Sleep was very poor overall, some days better than others because I think he was just trying to get used to being uncomfortable and sleep through the pain :( We tried EVERYTHING to help him with his gas and/or reflux (still not sure if he has both or just bad gas). He would scream before and after passing gas, and never poop on his own, all for about 3 full months…it was horrible and so sad. We had to constantly use the Frida Windi’s in order to help him pass gas and poop. His pediatrician prescribed a reflux med that ended up making everything so much worse! After the first Evivo use he had a HUGE blow out, and pooped on his own at least once a day, and everyday from then on. Each day his gas got a little less painful and he was able to pass it more easily. He’ll occasionally have moments of uncomfortableness, but I attribute it to an irritating food in my diet or teething. I will be using this for my son everyday from now on, I see no reason to stop it’s been a lifesaver for our house and especially our now bubbly, happy baby boy!!

    A Must-Have Recommendation
    My Peanut is now 7 months old. I started using Evivo as a "Hail Mary" when she was 2 months old and had such terrible diaper rash that no other treatments worked. Since then I have repurchased 4 times because I have experienced its efficacy. Even though I bought it to treat diaper rash from the inside out, I have noticed that she poops on a very predictable schedule, and she sleeps like a champion. Peanut is my 3rd baby, but the only one to sleep through the night, midnight to 10 am!!! She completely side stepped the dreaded 4 month sleep regression. I am additionally grateful for the research articles available on the website, and I have spent A LOT of time reading them. I am a completely satisfied customer and would recommend Evivo to my fellow mamas out there!

    Great product
    Thank you for a great experience. Our baby started on Evivo 3 weeks ago. She is much more content, and does not seem to be in discomfort when she poops.

    Evivo has been so helpful for our little guy! He was so gassy, was pooping multiple times a day and was extremely fussy. None of us were getting much sleep. After starting Evivo I noticed a difference in just a few days. He wasn’t nearly as gassy and he was not crying out in pain. His bowel movements regulated and he even started sleeping for a few hours at a time. I can’t recommend Evivo enough.

    Our baby girl was constantly spitting up and having painful gas/poops. Her poops were liquidy - which everyone says is “normal” for babies but hers was basically the consistency of water. We started Evivo and right away noticed her poops get more “sticky” and spaced out, and they didn’t make her uncomfortable anymore. She started napping a lot better during the day, which I thought was maybe just due to her age and didn’t want to chalk up to the probiotics. However, the other day we forgot to give them to her, and the next day she woke up angry and not wanting to eat her full bottles. We gave her the Evivo right away and by the late afternoon she was back to eating and sleeping normally. It does smell bad and likely taste bad, but my baby isn’t super particular so she doesn’t mind it. If your baby is super sensitive to taste then it may be difficult to get them to take it.
