Being a mom to a 5 year old and a new mom to a 3 month old is a demanding job. As an experienced mom or first time mom, there is always something new to learn. Whether you are breastfeeding, pumping, formula feeding or simply surviving, I’m over here cheering for you!!
Breastfeeding has been the easiest thing says no one ever — at least for me! I have been breastfeeding Nova since birth and I also started pumping for days that I need assistance or store some milk for when I go back to work. The beginning stages of breastfeeding were TOUGH. From engorgements, nipple blisters and soreness to improper latching, I experienced it all. There were days that I felt like quitting due to the pain. But despite some of the difficulties of breastfeeding, I took it day by day due to the benefits. Some days are still hard, but it has gotten a lot better thanks to encouraging friends, lactation nurses, and crying it out…yes, I have had those moments. Knowing how important it is for my baby’s health makes me want to keep pushing one day/milestone at a time. I am so excited that we made it to the 3 month mark. I am setting my next goal to 6 months. I will keep you updated.
Knowing how important breastfeeding is and how breast milk helps with baby’s immune system, I have been learning more about the power of breast milk and how it relates to Evivo probiotic and gut health. I hadn’t heard much about the importance of using probiotics for baby’s gut health; but I recently tried it with Nova. With a newborn, there’s always so much to know and learn. This time, one thing for sure is that I am making my baby’s gut health my top priority by giving her Evivo the first and only clinical proven probiotic for babies. That is why it is important to pair a dose of Evivo probiotic and breast milk to give my baby the best headstart possible and lay a good healthy foundation for the rest of her life. Evivo is designed to work with breast milk. It can work with formula, but there has not been extensive research on that. I’m also all for formula if that’s the route you choose. I gave Nolan both when I couldn’t keep up after going back to work.
In case you’re like me and didn’t know much about gut health, here is a Baby Gut Health 101 including what you need to know and why I am choosing to give Nova Evivo.
- 90% of babies lack B. infantis, which is the key good bacteria that digests special nutrients in breast milk and protects baby’s gut.
- Giving your infant Evivo probiotics reintroduces B. infantis to their gut, restoring it to its original state and decreasing the amount of harmful bacteria which may be linked to a higher risk of health problems like allergies, eczema, diabetes, and obesity in your child’s future.
- Moms naturally pass on good bacteria, but due to medical advancements such as antibiotics and C-sections, the good bacteria may not get passed on to the baby during childbirth. That’s why it is important to use Evivo probiotic. Evivo is the only clinically proven baby probiotic that helps restore gut health. It works with breast milk to help repopulate baby’s gut with the good bacteria that are likely missing. Happy baby, happy momma!
We all want to give our babies the best. Now that I know the importance of a healthy gut and how crucial it is to give Evivo probiotic during the first 6 months, I am on it and not skipping a day.
