What are baby probiotics? Here’s what you need to know. 

You’ve heard of baby probiotics and all the great things they can do, but you may still find yourself wondering what are probiotics exactly. We’ll try to answer the question, “What are baby probiotics?” and shed some light on some related subjects as well. Because everyone deserves a straight answer, especially a busy mom like yourself. 

B. infantis EVC001.
The strain that matters.

The past several decades have seen a significant increase in infant gut dysbiosis, along with a rapid rise in the incidence of eczema, allergies, obesity, and diabetes.101533 Research indicate these two events may be related—and solving gut dysbiosis can make an impact.

However, choosing an effective probiotic for your baby requires selecting the right bacterial strain, in combination with the right food source, given at the right time in your baby's development.  Evivo® (activated B. infantis EVC001, Actibif®) in combination with breastmilk, is clinically proven to effectively reduce the bad bacteria and replace it with the good bacteria baby needs. 

View this informative video from the International Scientific Association for Probiotics and Prebiotics (ISAPP) on differences in probiotic strain bacteria.

Evivo Mom and Baby

Evivo Baby Probiotics is activated B. infantis and works with breast milk to digest special nutrients and crowd out bad bacteria that can be harmful to baby’s gut. It is especially critical to feed Evivo to your baby during the first 6 months of life, when baby’s immune system and metabolism is still developing. 


Q. What are probiotics? 
A: Infant probiotics are living microorganisms, the good bacteria that live mostly in your gut along with other bacteria, which may not be so good. Probiotics are beneficial bacteria that, when chosen wisely, boost good health in both adults and babies’ guts. 

Q: What are baby probiotics? 
A:  There are many types of probiotics that are marketed for babies, but there’s only one baby probiotic that’s clinically proven to reduce bad gut bacteria by 80% and restore baby’s gut to its original state: Evivo. This probiotic is the strain of good bacteria B. infantis that babies require in their gut for proper nutrition and gut health. 

Q: What are Evivo baby probiotics’ main benefits? 
A: Some of the many benefits of Evivo include allowing baby to properly digest all nutrients in breastmilk, supporting the proper development of the immune system and metabolism, and an 80% reduction of bad gut bacteria associated with many symptoms like colic, allergies, eczema, diabetes, and obesity. 

In a recent baby probiotics study:

• Nearly half (48%) of moms claim their baby’s nighttime sleep is longer/more consistent within the first few weeks after starting Evivo*
• 23% of moms noticed their baby’s diaper rash was less severe/completely cleared up within the first few weeks after starting Evivo*
• 2 out of 3 moms claim their baby had less gas/fussiness within the first few weeks after starting Evivo*

    Helps a lot
    Our baby kept having explosive bowel moments, multiple times daily, many times while changing her. Since starting the probiotic (at about 2 weeks old) they have not happened since.

    My baby is thriving!
    We started researching infant probiotics shortly after our son's birth, once we realized that I would be unable to breastfeed. Our son was delivered during a traumatic C-section, I had severe hemorrhaging, and my milk never came in because of this. So, once it was decided that our son would have to be formula-fed, we wanted to make sure he got as much immune & GI support as possible. Our pediatrician recommended Evivo, and we are so glad we did! Our son takes the Probiotic every day, mixed in to about 5 mL of his formula, and he is just thriving! No gut issues, he hasn't gotten sick at all (and he's had to start daycare when I returned to work), and his pediatrician is just thrilled with his growth and development every time he has a checkup. We will continue to give our son Evivo!!

    Worked great!
    Evivo really helped our baby! She had reflux and we tried another brand of probiotic with no results. Started using Evivo and she was much happier within a few days.

    Works wonders for my baby
    I love this product. My baby was about 5 weeks old when I started it. She was a csection baby, spit up ALOT (like projectile because she would engorge herself), gassy, fussy, not colic but it she wasn't sleeping, she was trying to nurse because her belly was so confused. So I thought why not try the probiotics...they can't really do any damage, and with her being born with a double wham to her gut I thought let's just give it a try. I noticed a huge difference in just 36 hours after her first dose. Now she is a chill baby, loves being awake, she stops nursing when she's full, sleeps great through the night, and has normal small volume spit ups. I will be keeping this in our daily regimen. So happy I looked into this product!

    Evivo is Working
    Our experience with Evivo has been very positive. I had a C-section and I noticed that my baby never the typical yellow, seedy stools. Instead his stools were getting more loose and was mostly mucus. My son was also having a lot of gas pain. I had decided to try a dairy/soy free diet for a month, with absolutely no improvement. The GI specialist we saw suggested we try Evivo for a month. It took a couple of weeks for my son’s stool to have a more normal consistency, but he started to a lot less pain within a few days. Now after 3 weeks, our baby is happy and his stools are pretty normal. I went back on a regular diet and it never affected him. He also enjoys taking the probiotic with no issues. Very grateful for this probiotic.
