We were so excited to join the Evivo Team at the "Smart As A Mother" Brunch held at Au Fudge this week.
When we arrived Au Fudge, Au Pairs (love the name) were on-site to have fun with our little ones so we could take in all the new findings about breast milk.
After check-in I met the lovely Vanessa Barnett. She is a media maven and mompreneur who is just as lovely on the inside as she is on the outside.
We learned a great deal from Dr. Tanya and Dr. Tracy.
Mind blowing facts: 97% of Western women do not have B-infantis bacteria anymore.
"Every day thousands of mothers choose breast milk to provide their babies optimal nutrition and immunity. A University of California study showed that breast milk also promotes the growth of B. infantis in babies, good bacteria that supports a healthy infant gut. Unfortunately, most babies born today do not receive this key beneficial bacteria.
Because of this, Evivo is here to help with the best probiotic for babies.
What makes Evivo the best probiotic for babies? Activated B.infantis. An activated probiotic, Evivo probiotic powder is clinically proven to restore babies’ gut microbiome to its original, natural state.
We learned that the first and only product of its kind, “Evivo is clinically proven to restore a healthy gut in your baby. A daily probiotic powder, Evivo mixed with breast milk and fed to babies helps release nutrients in breast milk to create a protective internal environment in baby’s gut. It also helps develop baby’s immune system, and builds the foundation for good health for life. No wonder Evivo is the best probiotic for babies. "
Also here are a couple more important facts:
“Recent studies suggest that the vast majority of today’s moms are no longer passing the beneficial B. infantis bacteria to their babies at birth. Many of these moms lack it themselves. Additional studies suggest that babies not receiving this good gut bacteria in infancy could be at higher risk for eczema, allergies, obesity, and diabetes.”
C-SECTION has helped to contribute to this loss. Personally, I had two c-sections so this was important information to know. I will have to work on building up that good gut bacteria.
While listening to all the information, Mamas enjoyed the mimosas and mock cocktails. My faves were the Strawberry Mock Moijto.
Lunch was served and on the menu was chicken and steak. For those vegans, like myself, Au Fudge offered a delicious vegan alternative.
As the event winded down, it was time to raffle off some goodies and wouldn’t ya know, I won!! I was blown away by the gift: a Petunia Picklebottom bag. It was just in the nick of time, too, as I broke the zipper of our diaper bag.
As if that wasn’t enough, inside my prize was the amazing book by Dr. Tanya. Cannot wait to jump into it. I also received another box of nursing pads , nipple cream, t-shirt and bib.
As we gave hugs and left Au Fudge, we were handed a swag bag chockfull of wonderful products from Lansinoh New Ultimate Protection Nursing Pads, full size bottle HPA Lanolin nipple cream, EVIVO t-shirt and matching bib.
I cannot wait to start the free 4week starter kit with free 2 day shipping. After hearing all the information and asking questions, I am sold.
Stay tuned after the 4-week kit for our review.
