Since the moment I found out we were expecting twins, they have changed everything that I know about pregnancy and motherhood.  If you've kept up with my blog, then you know I had a fairly easy pregnancy considering I was carrying two.  However, it was nothing compared to my first two pregnancies.  They were a piece of cake.

I never had any sickness, I stayed active and I didn't have any swelling until the last week.  I even worked until my due date with my first.  The twins, on the other hand, were exhausting.  I gained double the weight (as expected) and swelled like you wouldn't believe.  I had back pain, heartburn, you name it.  I was definitely making up for my prior easy pregnancies.

Giving birth to them was another experience that was completely different and resulted in me learning more about how important it is to make sure they are getting all the right nutrients from me, including probiotics.  I am still working on my birth story, but spoiler alert, I gave birth naturally to Molly and two hours later ended up having a C-section with Kathryn.

Did you know that as result of Kathryn being born via c-section that she is likely missing the good bacteria B. infantis, allowing many harmful bacteria to thrive. 

These bad bacteria are linked to higher risk of colic, eczema, allergies, diabetes, and obesity.  This basically means you or your baby did not come in direct contact with mom’s beneficial gut bacteria. This good bacteria helps develop a healthy gut microbiome in your baby and could have long-term health benefits.  This is critical for the the first 6 months of baby's life for immune and metabolic development. 

Since three of my four babies were born naturally, I had no idea about this and how important it is for me to do something about it for my twins. 

That's why I've made the decision to use Evivo.  It is the first and only clinically-proven probiotic for babies.  Evivo contains no artificial colors, dyes, flavors, or preservatives; is free of additives, and is gluten-free.  It is also clinically proven to restore B. infantis to baby’s gut and reduce bad bacteria that is linked to a higher risk of health issues, now and later in life.  How amazing is that?!

How do you know if baby’s gut is healthy? Thankfully, there’s now a simple 3 question Baby Gut Check you can take that will reveal if baby is one of 9 out of 10 infants missing B. infantis: 
Question 1: Were you OR your baby born via C-section?
Question 2: Were you OR your baby given antibiotics pre-delivery or post pregnancy?
Question 3: Does your baby have diaper rash OR 5+ watery poops per day? 

If you answered yes to one or more of these questions your baby’s gut may be in jeopardy.
