Today I wanted to talk about how probiotics can help protect baby’s gut. Annelyn has been struggling with eczema on her inner elbows. I read that eczema could be a sign of bad gut health. She has also had issues going to the bathroom for the last couple weeks. Her bowel movements were stickier and harder for her to get out, plus they were not happening as often as they should be. I was excited to try Evivo breastmilk probiotics to help with her eczema, bowel movements, and to make sure I am providing her with all the support early on to set her up for a healthy, long life.
Once I started giving her Evivo probiotics she started going more regularly plus they were back to their normal consistencies. I am sure it will take a little while to see an improvement in her eczema, but I feel better that she is getting probiotics now to help with her gut health. These are the probiotics I used these with Prestyn and really liked them.
I use these breast milk collection cups on the opposite side that she nurses on to collect the breast milk to use with the Evivo probiotics. Our breastfeeding relationship has been a struggle. Unlike my boys she does not use me for comfort nursing. She prefers a pacifier. Which has caused my supply to be lower then I like. I have noticed since I began using these cups that my supply has increased which is great. When she switches sides, I also switch the collection cup to the other side.
Why Baby’s Gut Health Matters
Bad bacteria in baby’s gut is linked to a higher risk of autoimmune and metabolic issues, like colic, eczema, allergies, diabetes, and obesity. When more good bacteria is present in the gut, it creates a strong, protective wall and crowds out the bad bacteria. Unfortunately, today, 9 out of 10 babies are experiencing a disruption in their gut, causing more bad bacteria to thrive. The first 6 months of life are so important for immune and metabolic development. The composition of baby’s gut microbiome plays an important roll in this process.
Evivo is the only baby probiotic clinically proven to restore the good bacteria, B.infantis, reducing bad bacteria in baby’s gut by 80%. Giving Evivo Probiotics is super easy, just mix one satchel with 3-5ml of breastmilk.
Put the breastmilk/probiotic mixture in a feeding syringe and give to your baby.
Annelyn loved holding onto daddy’s fingers while he gave her the Evivo probiotics.
