I’m never one to give advice to new parents. But the one piece of advice that someone told me (actually, it was someone on social media who told me this) when baby was born, was to take TONS of videos of him, even if I didn’t share them. Just take them. And keep them for yourself. Best. Advice. Ever.
Every night when I put him to bed, I scroll through all the photos and videos of him over the past 7 months. I thought people were nuts for announcing that the did that, but I’ve turned into doing it too. I miss my baby boy when he’s sleeping!
I hesitate to share advice, since it’s so different for everyone. And not everyone is on the same page with parenting. It’s all so personal, right? I know many of you (including myself) listen to your baby’s pediatrician before anyone else.
But I want to tell you about some gut health, and your baby.
Did you know that babies are born with no gut bacteria? It’s important to build that up within the first few months/years of their lives.
Obviously gut health isn’t something you can see from the outside, but you can detect their poor gut health in these signs such as colic, eczema, fussiness, gas, pain, and poop. Research has found and confirmed that the good bacteria, B. infantis has been missing in 9 out of 10 babies, which in turn causes the bad bacteria to thrive. This is where probiotics come into play. More specifically, Evivo probiotics that you mix with breast milk.
Of course breast milk offers a lot of nutrients for babies, and it’s sometimes often enough. Sometimes baby’s might not receive all those nutrients if his/her gut microbiome doesn’t contain B. infantis.
How can you tell whether your baby is one out of the 9 out of 10 that is missing B. infantis?
- Does your baby have diaper rash OR 5+ watery poops per day?
- Were you OR your baby born via C-section
- Were you OR your baby given antibiotics pre-delivery or post pregnancy?
Evivo has its benefits to help baby, as a probiotic it’s clinically proven to restore your baby’s gut. It’s a daily probiotic in powder form, and you mix the Evivo with breast milk and feed it to baby that way. Keep Evivo in the freezer until it’s ready to use, it can also keep in the fridge for up to one month.
