From researching car seats and feeding styles to interviewing pediatricians, new parents do everything they can to protect their little ones. But, as a recently published peer-reviewed study shows, even with the best preparation, more than 9 out of 10 babies in the U.S. do not acquire at birth a critical good bacteria needed for the development of a healthy gut.

The first 6 months of a newborn’s life are a period of rapid immune system development, and that healthy growth is dependent on a delicate balance of good and bad bacteria in baby’s belly. As doctors learn more about newborn gut health, the role of one particular good bacteria – activated B. infantis EVC001– is becoming more pronounced as a vital defense against potentially dangerous bacteria, including E. coli.
