As hard as breastfeeding is, because come on ladies lets face it breastfeeding can be a really hard journey, I was looking forward to it so much with my second. I missed those tender moments of just the two of you cuddled up quiet somewhere while you provided life for this child once again. Having them look up at you with this look (you know the one) is so tender it just melts your heart. I missed those moments so much with Olivia and couldn’t wait to experience them once again with Ryan.
This journey has been completely different though. Right from the start something just seemed off with Ryan. She attached wonderfully and my milk came in great- that wasn’t the issue- but she was spitting up a lot. The nurses kept telling me I wasn’t burping her hard enough which I probably wasn’t but I knew that wasn’t it. Ended up she had to have her stomach suctioned out from possibly swallowing some fluid during birth.
So I thought everything would be ok after that, but it wasn’t. The spitting up continued- which I know is normal for some kids but I just knew it wasn’t normal for us. This calm and snuggly baby would start to get extremely stiff and get very upset. We would have rough nights where she would just scream and the only thing that would calm her was to nurse her but than it was a vicious cycle all over again. I started to notice that the spit up smelt acidic to me as well.
After the doctor finally realizing that something was probably wrong I was recommended to cut out dairy and to put Ryan on a probiotic. I had never thought of putting my baby on a probiotic before. I’ve heard of so many adults starting to take probiotics but for some reason you think infants should stick to breastmilk or formula and nothing else. After looking into probiotics more I was contacted by Evivo to try out their probiotic. These are some things that I have learned about their product after looking into it more.
- 97% of North American babies are born with out B. infantis- which are the good bacteria.
why is it important to have this B. infantis in your babies gut- when present your babies gut is in its best most natural original state. They help to keep harmful bacteria from growing. With this high rate of babies not having it present they believe that is why there has been an increase with eczema, allergies, obesity, and diabetes in babies.
- Evivo is the first and only product of its kind, clinically proven to restore a healthy gut.
Evivo is a daily probiotic powder with activated B. infantis- once mixed with breastmilk and given to baby- helps to release nutrients in the breastmilk creating an internal environment in your babies gut, developing the immune system and creating a foundation for good health for life.
- Maximize every bit of your breastmilk
Evivo captures all the special carbohydrates from your breastmilk which are called HMOs (human milk oligosaccharides) that might be otherwise lost. Evivo consumes these HMOs in a unique and superior way to grow and protect your babies gut microbiome. Evivo than converts the HMOs into important nutrients that feed your baby and enriching gut microbiome. This significantly reduces the potentially harmful bacteria in your baby.
After finding all of this out I wish I would have discovered this product sooner. What parent wouldn’t want to support a healthy gut environment setting their child up for a long and healthy life. I highly encourage you to at least go to Evivo’s website and read about it for yourself. Educating ourselves will only benefit our children one way or another.
