Why Probiotics Are Essential in Pregnancy and Infancy!

Why Probiotics Are Essential in Pregnancy and Infancy!



Did you know that the first 6 months of a babies life is the crucial time for implementing good digestive health?

I won’t lie, I currently have to take an iron supplement because I am anemic which messes up the digestive system. Constipation from the overload of iron is unreal, which is why I take probiotics while pregnant. But did you know that probiotics can be passed onto the baby in the womb too? I HIGHLY recommend that ALL pregnant women take not only probiotics while pregnant but digestive enzymes as well, and continue to take them while nursing. They play a huge part in having a healthy baby!

I gave probiotics to my daughter and will give them to her baby sister due in May as well! We never had any issues with Arya experiencing any autoimmune or metabolic problems and I mostly think it’s due to breastfeeding and the probiotics.


A babies digestive system isn’t fully developed until around 6-8 months

So they may have a higher risk of autoimmune and metabolic issues as well that could result in colic, eczema, yeast rashes, thrush, acid reflux, allergies, diabetes, and constipation. When more good bacteria is present in the gut, it creates a strong, protective wall and crowds out the bad bacteria. When a baby is low on probiotics, there is little protection on the lining of the digestive system. When there is little protection, then the esophagus, stomach, and intestines can easily become rubbed raw and painful, and sometimes even bleed.

Try Evivo


A once-daily baby probiotic addresses this issue head-on. Evivo is clinically proven to restore the good bacteria called B. infantis to baby’s gut while reducing the potentially harmful bacteria by 80%. Just mix it into breastmilk or formula and give the correct dosage

It’s crucial to make sure your baby’s gut is on the right track from the very beginning, so it has all of the good bacteria it needs while it’s still in the development stage. By addressing the issue of gut health during this early window, it allows baby’s gut, digestive system, and immune system to continue to grow, protect and thrive before introducing solid food around the 6-month mark.

    I had no idea that probiotics were so important to pregnancy or to babies. It makes sense, though. Probiotics help improve our gut health, and babies have guts, after all.

    I had no idea that Probiotics were so important. It makes me feel like a bad mother not giving it to my kids when they were little!! Good gut health is very important. I wonder if I had had probiotics when I was younger if I would have not developed Celiac Disease or a thyroid problem.
    If I can prevent my kids from having them, I’d do it!

    I wish I had known this while I was pregnant with my first! I’ll definitely take in the probiotics for my next one.

    Taking probiotics will definitely make you healthier. I think it’s one of the things that pregnant women should be getting. It has a lot of benefits and will help clean the toxins in your body.

    As someone with anemia that has to take an iron supplement daily as well, I can relate! Therefore, probiotics are a must. Probiotics also help my baby. 🙂

    I am reading more and more now about the effect that this line of probiotics has on the little ones. I could not imagine there were ways to prevent little babies from having some digestive issues, and now I can help my little one when she comes into this world. Glad I can be prepared better now!

    It was never a thing when my kids were infants, but I guess with each passing year we learn more and more about our bodies and the science behind keeping them healthy. I’ve started including probiotics in my diet again.

    I was very adamant about my probiotics. They make a huge difference in early infancy health.
