Why Baby’s Gut Health Is So Important

Good genes only get you so far. The rest is up to your gut.

If you’re like most parents, you breathed a big sigh of relief when baby arrived healthy and perfect. But while some outward signs of health are easy to see (you probably counted all 10 fingers and toes), what’s on the inside counts too, particularly for the gut. Research has shown that the microbiome—or the genetic makeup of the trillions of bacteria living on and inside of you—can have a lifelong impact on a person’s health and immunity, especially when it comes to important bacteria in the gut. That’s why it’s so important to establish baby’s microbiome early in life. Evivo™, a once-daily probiotic powder you mix with breast milk, is designed to jump start the growth of this good bacteria in baby’s gut to reduce the bad bacteria linked to higher risk of eczema, allergies or obesity down the line. Want to know more? Here’s the skinny on baby’s microbiome and how it impacts a lifetime of wellness.

The Bump and Evivo present Gut Instinct, a sponsored series about the importance of the baby gut microbiome in creating a foundation for lifelong health. Visit Evivo.com to learn more about the benefits of their unique probiotic powder for breastfed infants.
