If your newborn infant is fed breast milk, you might be told to expect him to have five to eight poopy diapers per day, with each baby poop appearing loose or watery. Why loose or watery baby poop? Why five to eight poops a day—is that really normal? What’s normal for baby poop anyway?
First, it’s important to know that breast milk’s third most abundant nutrient isn’t food for the baby - It’s food for baby’s gut bacteria and supports his developing metabolism and immune system.
Baby poop is a visible signal of ‘good’ versus ‘bad’ bacteria in baby’s gut. The more ‘bad’ bacteria that are present, the more a baby will poop since the gut is not able to absorb all the nutrients from breast milk – babies just poop them out. The more ‘good’ bacteria, the fewer poops since the baby is able to absorb all the nutrients from breast milk.
Do your baby a solid.
Feed Evivo to your baby every day and you might just see a difference. 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.
Well-formed – the result of being well informed. That sounds better already.
