What baby poop says about your baby's gut health.
Time to check that diaper.

The Evivo Scoop on Baby Poop

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.

Evivo Colic Testimonial

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.

    Noticeable Difference
    We've seen an improvement in our baby's health almost immediately. Less fussy, easy digestion, and a possible improvement in preventing diaper rash.

    Happy with it
    Since starting our ~11 week old on Evivo, we immediately noticed far fewer episodes of painful gassiness. He was experiencing painful gas and bowel movements pretty much daily, sometimes multiple times a day. We believe it was related to lactose overload—our little guy was wanting to comfort eat every time he was uncomfortable, and that just made the problem worse. Since starting Evivo about 3 weeks ago, those are rare occurrences now. He’s also been sleeping better at night—he went from maybe getting a 3 hour stretch followed by hourly wake ups, to this last couple of weeks sleeping 4, 6 and 8 hours straight. Not every night is perfect, but there are rarely ever any painful, screaming diaper changes in the middle of the night. He went from almost every diaper being poopy, to now only 2-3 poopy diapers a day. As many other reviews point out, it is a bit of a challenge to administer. The little cup that comes with the starter kit is pretty useless. I accidentally melted it when I was sanitizing it anyway. No loss. We now use a tiny little Tupperware container and shake it to mix the powder with the breast milk. We also find that warming the milk up just slightly in hot water helps with dissolving the powder just a little. It’ll still be pretty gritty though. Overall, very happy that we bought this as it made a difference almost instantly.

    Way less poop
    It’s only been 3 weeks - and my baby went from multiple poops per day to one per week so far. It freaked us out to be honest but he doesn’t seem to be bothered. When he does poop now he POOPS…blowout style - he was only 3 weeks when we started him because of what we thought was gas. He does seem to be more comfortable now - gas and straining/crying still happens but not to the point where he’s inconsolable. We are going to do another month and see how he does!

    Starter giving Evivo to my baby around 4mo. I wish I’d known about it sooner! It fixed my colicky guy’s gassy tummy, and best of all no more green poops! He’d been having progressively greener poops for weeks and lots of digestive discomforts. Within three days of starting Evivo, no more green poops and a much happier baby! Little guy is now 11mo, and we’re still nursing and feeding Evivo. He loves the flavor, and helps me depress the plunger to feed every night before bed. This stuff is magic!

    Helps my baby's digestion
    I love using evivo, after a couple weeks of using it every day, I noticed my son's digestion getting better. His poops are more consistent and solid, and he seems to be able to pass gas with more ease. Looking forward to using it more to help his system and overall well being.

    Great product!
    We started giving Evivo to our 3.5mo baby 3 weeks ago per recommendation of a lactation consultant and it helped a lot! His stool became much better and it’s less frequent now so I assume he absorbs my milk better (we went from 6-8 time poops per day to once per day) and seems he is less fussy now. Highly recommend!

    Gas pains gone
    Our daughter had problems pooping and with gas pains from birth. It broke my heart to see her in such pain. We tried everything to get her to poo in order to relieve the gas pains. Finally we gave in and paid for Evivo as a last resort as it's quite expensive. She's been taking it for 3weeks now and hey presto... She now rarely has any gas pains, colic has gone and she's gone from pooping once every 7-10days to once every 2-3 days! We now not only have a much happier baby, but she's now started eating more and has finally gotten into an eat-play-sleep rhythm. I wish we'd tried this so much sooner! She now 11weeks old.

    Thank goodness I found this!
    I started unsung this when my baby was about 6 weeks old. He was so gassy and obviously uncomfortable. We had been using another probiotic but I couldn’t tell a difference. Within a week of starting Evivo we weren’t having near the issues. He was less gassy, passing it easier, and he was having less frequent BMs. Before, literally every time I changed his diaper he was poopy. We are so happy we found this!

    Going well so far!
    My breastfed baby seems to be happier overall now that we have been using Evivo. He is 2 months old and was born via C-Section which I have read can cause issues with their gut health. He is generally a very gassy baby but also started not pooping as much and now with Evivo his bowel movements have become more regular as well. Also a tip I would recommend for anybody considering Evivo is to invest in a pacifier syringe! It makes the process so simple and the syringe Evivo comes with fits right into it :)

    We’ve been using Evivo for a few weeks and see a huge difference in our 9 week old baby. More full diapers, consistent gas and an overall happy little boy! An amazing and natural solution to everyday problems, now solved!

    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

    In 2018, my husband and I were blessed with Baby Boy #1. At 2 weeks of age, we were wondering what we had done. He had reflux as well as horrible colic - up all night, gassy, crying in pain - in was horrible. His pediatrician had me doing a dairy free diet and having him sleep on an incline but nothing seemed to help. Then my mom, who is a nurse for a different pediatrician, suggested that I try Evivo. Finally, he was sleeping and not as gassy. By 4 months of age, I was eating dairy again, and my baby boy was still happy. Amazing! This year, we were blessed with Baby Boy#2. You would think that I would have learned from my first experience, but I did not. At 4 weeks of age, we were once again experiencing colic and an unhappy baby. I mentally slapped myself and quickly ordered Evivo. Within a few days, he was less gassy, only having 1-2 dirty diapers a day (versus 7-8), and much, much happier. At 8 weeks, he is sleeping 10 hours at night and only waking up once to eat. You can be sure that if we are blessed with another member of our family, there will be a box of Evivo in the freezer awaiting the arrival of baby #3 because Evivo = Happy Baby = Happy Mom = Happy Life! Thank you Evivo.

    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!

    Makes a difference
    I was hesitant to try because of the price and some negative reviews, but our experience turned out to be positive. We started the probiotic at 3 weeks old, just as colic was beginning to emerge with our daughter, who had received antibiotics during labor and just prior to birth. She had lots of gas, frequent and VERY watery stools (about 6 times a day), which created a bad diaper rash, in addition to diagnosed and medicated GERD (medication was started before probiotics). These/colic made our daughter cry a great deal especially during the evening, made it challenging to soothe her, and made bedtime very unpredictable (even more so for a newborn). The gains of this probiotic were gradual though we did start to see a difference basically after the first dose, when she went from 6 stools pe day to 3, and a healed bum/rash in less than 48 hours; we are only 2 packets away from completing a month supply, and our daughter's crying has been significantly reduced, she is much more easily soothed, and predictable in nature (she fusses for eating and sleeping). She is also having approximately one large stool every other day, and it has more consistency (not watery, more pudding like). She continues to pass gas and GERD medication.

    Unsure if it's working
    We're on month two of EVIVO and we have noticed a decrease in pooping to once per day or one every other day. However his gas is still constant, and he still spits up, sometimes a lot. The diaper rash has gotten better. It is very difficult to mix the powder with the milk, even at room temperature or slightly warm. We have tried mixing it and using the syringe, also mixing it into the bottle, and it just doesn't breakdown.
