There are a bajillion things you are concerned about when you have a baby. Is she cold, did she get enough to eat?. How wet can her diaper be and for how long? How long is too long of a nap? Am I eating the right foods to produce good breast milk? If I typed out all the things this post would never end.
One thing we should all be concerned about is the health of your baby. It turns out, good bacteria has been disappearing from the bellies of babies born in developed countries due to the unintended consequences of modern medical practices like C-sections, antibiotics, and formula feeding. In fact, 9 out of every 10 babies born today are missing the key B. infantis bacteria. Evivo is the only probiotic that is clinically proven to repopulate your baby’s gut with the good bacteria they are missing 100% of the time.
The first 6 months of a baby’s life are critical for autoimmune and metabolic development – and the composition of baby’s gut microbiome plays a significant role in this process. Too much bad bacteria in the gut early in life is linked to an increased rate of autoimmune and metabolic issues such as asthma, eczema, allergies, diabetes and obesity later in life. I also recently learned that it can contribute to colic, fussiness and even rashes.
Mia is 2 months old now and I know how important gut health is now. Mia was extremely colicky when she was born. Every night she would scream in terror and we had no clue why. I thought she had the same issues Troy had with the dairy protein allergy. The pediatrician noted it could be just an upset stomach or plain colic. After I started giving her Evivo that terror scream never happens, she is also going to sleep much faster and calmer. I have also noticed she is a little more regular. She is growing and I know the body changes, but after we started giving her the Evivo I’m not worried about her being constipated or gassy!
I feel like as adults we are playing catch up and trying to incorporate more probiotics in our daily intake to keep us regular and gut healthy, we should be just as cautious for our babies.
With the advice of our pediatrician, investing in a good probiotic will help with her gas and colic issues. Evivo is my #1 choice and I love that it works best when mixed with breast milk ensuring an easy intake for Mia.
