I can’t believe that DJ is already one month old! Going through the newborn stage again is just as exciting, rewarding and sometimes overwhelming as it was the first time with Aubrey Ann.
Since DJ was born he’s suffered from severe gas and digestion issues. It was so bad at times that he would cry inconsolably and nothing we did would relieve the issue. We tried tummy rubs, bicycle kicks and even drops for gas and nothing worked. As a mom you never want to see you children in pain, so not being able to relieve his pain made me feel horrible.
I’m excited to share with you all about Evivo baby probiotic and how it has helped with DJ’s digestive issues and gut health.
What is Evivo?
Evivo is a probiotic for babies contains B. infantis EVC001, a proprietary strain clinically proven to create a protective environment in baby’s gut. Evivo reduces bad gut bacteria by 80%, which lowers the pH level in baby’s poop.
When babies have too much bad bacteria in their gut, it increases the pH level of their poop making it more acidic. This can cause issues like gassiness, colic, diaper rash, fussiness, trouble sleeping, bloating and even eczema.
Having a protective environment in baby’s gut helps defend against bad bacteria and discomfort for baby, while lowering the pH level of baby’s poop to a more protective range.
The first 6 months of a baby’s life are critical for proper immune and metabolic development, so it’s important to use Evivo right from the start.
How To Use Evivo
- Pour one packet of the Evivo probiotic powder into the mixing bowl.
- Add 3-5 ml of breastmilk or formula to the powder and mix well.
- Feed to your little one using the syringe.
- Continue this routine every day for the first six months of your little one’s life.
Helpful Facts About Gut Health
- MYTH #1: Baby looks healthy so baby’s gut is healthy too.
- FACT #1: 9 out of 10 babies born in the US have a low functioning gut microbiome due to the lack of good bacteria needed for a healthy gut.
- MYTH #2: Babies will grow out of tummy troubles as they get older.
- FACT #2 : The first 6 months are critical for proper immune and metabolic development. Too much bad bacteria in the gut early in life is linked to an increased rate of diaper rash, colic, eczema, and allergies.
- MYTH #3: Baby probiotics are only needed when symptoms appear.
- FACT #3: Probiotics are not just for fixing symptomatic conditions. In fact, Evivo is the only probiotic clinically proven to repopulate baby’s gut with the good bacteria they are missing 100% of the time, every time.
- MYTH #4: There’s not enough science to prove probiotics are really helpful.
- FACT #4: Evivo is the result of over a decade of research and clinical trials studying the importance of B. infantis in the gut, and the many benefits it provides to baby’s gut health.
- MYTH #5: All probiotics are the same.
- FACT #5: Strain does matter. Evivo contains B. infantis EVC001, a proprietary strain that is clinically proven to be 100% effective in restoring B. infantis to baby’s gut while reducing bad bacteria by 80%.
Our Experience With Evivo
When we took DJ in for his 2 week check-up with his pediatrician, we mentioned his digestive issues to her along with his fussiness, bloating & trouble sleeping and she recommended that we try an infant probiotic. After doing our research on different infant probiotics we decided to try Evivo because it’s the first and only baby probiotic that is clinically proven to reduce bad bacteria by 80%.
DJ is a much happier baby since we’ve been using Evivo. There has been such a big improvement in his digestion since the first day we started giving it to him.
Seeing him happy and no longer suffering with severe gas pains, bloating, fussiness and sleepless nights makes me happy and lets me know that we made the right decision in using Evivo. I love that Evivo not only provides immediate relief for DJ but it will also benefit him long term in helping to develop a healthy gut.

I love this so much. Everyone thinks gut health is something that needs to be addressed when you’re older, but even babies can require help keeping their gut’s flora in line.
Chiell Ordonez says
When my baby was around this age, she too also dealt with gut issues! I was a bit uneasy of giving her supplements at first, then eventually resorted to it. However, I did end up adding more probiotics to my own diet while breastfeeding and it helped so much!! Great post!
Matt Taylor says
That is so awesome, I had no idea there were probiotics for babies. My nurse practioner friend told me to take probiotics, which cleared up my gut issues. So cool they have baby versions!
Sarah Miller says
We dealt with gut issues with my 2nd and we used probiotics. They really seemed to help her! She is 2 now and doing great- her issues and food intolerances have resolved. Your little guy is so cute 🙂
Krysten Quiles says
I take probiotics and so do my dogs, so it would make sense that they have them for babies as well!
Mrs. Cherry says
Probiotics are a much needed supplement. Many people don’t get enough and especially with growing little ones, they need all the health benefits they can get!
Samantha Laycock says
I had no idea this product was around. When I have another baby, I will need to remember it.
Alyssa Johnson says
This is so important. I didn’t honestly realize just how important. Thank you so much for sharing, and for caring enough about your baby to want to do the best you can.
Evivo sounds like a great supplement for babies! I wish I knew about this probiotic sooner for my kids!
cute & little
There are so many helpfull things today, to use for your kids. I would loved to have all this help when my kid was younger 🙂
Gervin Khan says
First of all thanks for introducing this very essential stuff to our babies. This is definitely a great help that makes the job done.
Ntensibe Edgar says
Aaawwww…..DJ has grown so fast….don’t they all? I will have to read more about probiotics before I can decide!
Margaret | Live Like No One Else says
I had no idea that there are probiotics for babies. I know they are important for our gut health, but had no clue they existed. Babies are so precious, but it’s so much easier with bigger kids as they can tell you whats wrong. LOL
I wish I knew about this when my daughter was a baby!
Cyndi Buchanan says
I didn’t realize there were probiotics for babies. Very cool!
My son was a colicky baby and I remember as if it were yesterday how he used to cry for hours, poor soul. I wish I knew about Evivo then. Great post.
World in Eyes says

Hayley J says
Wow, I didn’t know you could get baby probiotics. I wish I would have known earlier as my little boy struggled so bad with colic!
Mosaics Lab says
I know probiotics are essential but I didn’t know you can give it to babies at this age, this is amazing.
Emily Fata says
If probiotics are important for an adult digestive tract, they certainly would be important for a baby’s! It’s great that you’re giving your little one them from such a young age.
The Joyous Living says
Probiotics are so important for everyone. That’s terrific packaging of the baby probiotics you use for your child. And i’m so glad to hear it helped with the gut health and #2.
Marie Phillips says
DJ is so adorable!!! I took a lot of probiotics myself when pregnant and nursing. And I exclusively nursed, so I didn’t have to get probiotics for my son because he was already getting them through my milk. This is such a great product though!
I used probiotics when my son was a baby and it did help with his issues. He wasn’t as fussy as he used to be! This is a great product every mom with little ones should look into.
This is such an informative post! I didn’t know that babies also need probiotics for their gut health. I am going to forward this post to my friend who has a new baby!
I never heard about probiotics for babies. Looks like there is so many health benefits of probiotics. Thanks for suggesting I would recommend this to my one of my friend who recently became mother.
I found probiotics really helped with my baby. The hardest part was remembering to give them to her!
Autumn Murray says
Evivo looks like an essential product to help newborns! They didn’t have probiotics when my children were born.
Wow! I didn’t knew about this subject before I got here. Thanks for sharing this all of us.
Kristine Nicole Alessandra says
Probiotics are very good for our health. I did not know that you can give them to babies too. That’s something new I have learned today. Will recommend this to friends and family who have babies. I am sure they will be glad to know about this.

Emman Damian says
Probiotics help normalize the normal flora of the gut. It’s so important and it makes our tummies get stronger!
will share with friends and family who have little ones now.. gut health is definitely so important..
I don’t have children so I had no idea that babies suffer from gut problems when they are so young. It’s great that there are products that will help them digest much better.
