Did you know that bad bacteria in a baby’s gut is linked to a higher risk of diaper rash, colic, eczema, allergies and autoimmune disease? Did you know that more than 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? Neither did I. But had I known, I would have broached this issue much differently with my older girls than I am with my newest daughter, Glory.
If there is one thing I am learning as I navigate life as a mother of three, it is that every child is different and what works for one isn’t necessarily going to work for another. The last six weeks with Glory have been a whirlwind, and I have been doing everything I can to get to know her and how to respond to her needs. One of the most important things I could do for her was make an intentional effort to pay attention to her gut health and to make a concerted effort to establish good gut health from the start.
With Evivo, I am able to do that. Evivo is a daily probiotic made specifically for babies that contains B. infantis EVC001*, a superior strain of B. infantis, that is clinically proven to create a protective environment for baby’s gut, safeguard baby’s short and long-term health and is recommended by top pediatricians, lactation consultants and parents like me and you! Poor gut health can cause gassiness and bloating, diaper rash, colic and sleep disruptions, making it challenging for both mama and baby to navigate through those first precious weeks. Using Evivo everyday decreases that risk, and is just one more special way to care for my little one - and it's easily mixed into breastmilk for mess free feeding.
There is no way that I can do it all for Glory, but knowing that her gut health is covered by Evivo and that every day we are making steps towards balancing her immune system makes me so confident. Have you experienced any of the issues above with your little one? Are you currently using a probiotic? Drop your responses in the comments and let's get the convo going.

I hope you found this post helpful and learned a few reasons why gut health is invaluable for me and my little one and that it is a priority (now) for yours, too.
With wisdom and courage, for His glory,
