Does My Baby Need Probiotics?
by Rema from Jewelry & Jeans
I'm all about doing simple things that are good for my health. As adults, we know how important good bacteria is in our diet. We regularly eat things like yogurt with probiotics to ensure a healthy digestive system but what about your little one? As mothers, we constantly worry if our children are getting the best. As a new mom, that worry is heightened. Are they eating enough? Is what I'm eating upsetting their tummy? Why is she getting a bad diaper rash? When Bronson was a baby he suffered from a little colic and eczema so we definitely worried about what he was consuming or what deficiencies he might have.
I wish I knew a few years ago when I started having kids, that babies now no longer have the presence of an essential bacteria known as B. infantis in their guts as a result of modern medical practices. This good bacteria reduces the risk of harmful bacteria from causing conditions like eczema, obesity, and diabetes. Crazy, right?!
Luckily, there's an easy and effective way to help baby's gut restore the good bacteria right from the start with Evivo. Evivo provides a daily probiotic powder that when mixed with breast milk helps release nutrients in breast milk to create a protective environment in baby's gut.
Wondering if your baby’s gut is healthy? Thankfully, there’s now a simple 3 question Baby Gut Check you can take that will reveal if baby is one of 9 out of 10 infants missing B. infantis:
Question 1: Were you OR your baby born via C-section?
Question 2: Were you OR your baby given antibiotics pre-delivery or post pregnancy?
Question 3: Does your baby have diaper rash OR 5+ watery poops per day?
These are great things to know as I go into soon having my third so that I can keep an eye out early and not suffer or worry through unnecessary and time-consuming testing.
