Baby Gut Health 101 - What You Need To Know

K guys, let’s talk gut health. Ever heard of it? Gut health? Yeah it's super important. And I'm kind of a gut health...nerd, lol. When I was in my last trimester I got a gnarly UTI. I tried everything I could to cure it naturally but it just wasn't working. When I took a followup urine culture and found that the infection was spreading, I was pretty devastated because I knew that meant that I had to take an antibiotic. Due to the fact that I wasn't quite far enough along that if he did come early due to the UTI it could be risky. So I took my antibiotic and the UTI went away and all was good.

Fast forward to the first month of Jude's life. HOLY. You guys, he's been a hard baby. Super colicky. Very un-content. Every time I fed him it was non-stop crying for the next half-hour. So I decided to change my diet and see if that made a difference, which it did. A big difference. He wasn't crying as much, seemed a little happier, which was good for my sanity! But it just wasn't enough. I knew that that darn antibiotic wrecked havoc for his poor little tummy. Every time I've ever taken an antibiotic I know that it always wrecks my gut health too. I couldn't imagine what it felt like for a brand new baby that was already going through so much!

So I started doing some research. I came across Evivo which is a probiotic specifically for babies gut health! More specifically for the first 6 months of your babies life, which is the most important time to get their gut health in check. Basically B. infantis, the key Bifidobacterium strain, is vital in building a strong foundation of good bacteria for your healthy baby. The presence of good bacteria in baby’s gut reduces potentially harmful bacteria linked to a higher risk for conditions like colic, eczema, allergies, obesity, and diabetes.

Here are some interesting things I thought I'd share with you guys:

  • Probiotics are not just for fixing symptomatic conditions. In fact, Evivo is the only
probiotic clinically proven to repopulate baby's gut with the good bacteria they are missing
100% of the time, every time.
  • Evivo is the result of over a decade of research and clinical trials studying the
importance of B. infantis in the gut, and the many benefits it provides to baby's gut health.
  • Strain does matter. Evivo is the only baby probiotic clinically proven to be 100%
effective in restoring B. infantis to baby's gut while reducing bad bacteria by 80%.
  • 9 out of 10 babies born in the US have a low functioning gut microbiome due to the
lack of good bacteria needed for a healthy gut.
  • The first 6 months are critical for proper immune and metabolic development. Too
much bad bacteria in the gut early in life is linked to metabolic and immune disorders such as
asthma, eczema, allergy, Type 1 Diabetes and obesity down the road.

Evivo has been recognized by TODAY, npr, The New York Times, Newsweek and many more. Not only that, but so many mom's have shared their reviews and I'm a review JUNKIE!

This is something I'm really passionate about and if I can help even one mama out there struggling with a fussy baby then that's good enough for me! I felt strongly about sharing this information with you guys and I hope that it can help your little's gut health and your mommy sanity. Since giving Jude Evivo, even in the first few days we noticed a huge difference. I can't wait to rebuild his gut health and get him back to his balanced state.
