Why Probiotics Are Essential in the First 6 Months of Life


“This post is sponsored by Evivo, but the content and opinions expressed here are my own.”

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 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. 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 but digestive enzymes as well. And continue taking them while nursing too, since they play a huge part in having a healthy baby!

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

So your baby 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.

How do you know if a baby’s gut is healthy?

Thankfully, there’s now a simple 3 question Baby Gut Check you can take that will reveal if the baby is one of 9 out of 10 infants missing B. infantis:

Question 1: Were you OR your baby born via C-section?

Question 2: Were you OR your baby given antibiotics pre-delivery or post pregnancy?

Question 3: Does your baby have diaper rash OR 5+ watery poops per day?

A once-daily baby probiotic like EVIVO 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.
