To begin with, most of you already know that I had an emergency C-section when I delivered Camilla in mid-July. As you can imagine, I had not done any research regarding a caesarean section. In all honesty, I had no knowledge of the risks, complications, and recovery process. I soon learned about the importance of gut health and how it has started to decrease over the past generations. Unfortunately, medical advances such as c-sections, antibiotics, and formula feeding tend to damage the baby’s gut. Thankfully, there’s 3 simple questions that will reveal if your baby is one of the 9 out of 10 infants missing the good gut bacteria.
3 Questions that Reveal if Baby is Missing B. infantis
- Were you OR your baby born via C-section? Unfortunately, a C-sections means you or the baby did not come in direct contact with mom’s beneficial gut bacteria. This particular bacteria helps develop a healthy gut microbiome in baby leading to long-term health benefits.
- Were you OR your baby given antibiotics pre-delivery or post pregnancy? In the given case, you or baby were given antibiotics the bacteria in the gut was eliminated.
- Does your baby have diaper rash OR 5+ watery poops per day? The amount of stool movements per day is a visible sign of good or bad bacteria in the baby’s gut. Babies with more good bacteria tend to have less poops throughout the day. As they are able to absorb all the nutrients from the breast milk. On the other hand, the more stool movements in a day can irritate the skin leading to diaper rash.
If you answered yes to one or more of these questions your baby’s gut may be in jeopardy. Your baby’s gut is likely missing the good bacteria B. infantis, and allowing many harmful bacteria to thrive. The bad bacteria has been linked to a higher risk of colic, eczema, allergies, diabetes, and obesity.
A team of doctors and scientist from Evivo found a way to repopulate the infant gut with good bacteria. Evivo is the only probiotic clinically proven to restore B. infantis while reducing the potentially harmful bacteria by 80%. In clinical trials, babies consuming Evivo and breast milk had their gut fully repopulated with the good bacteria.

- Now, feed your baby using a feeding syringe. Do not add the mix to the bottle. Use immediately once it has been mixed. Above all, do not store for later use!
- Lastly, one sachet per day is all baby needs.
