The Importance of Probiotics for C-Section Babies

As a new mom you are constantly worried about keeping baby safe, happy and healthy. A daily probiotics supplement can help you keep baby healthy, especially those born via c-section.

If your baby was born via c-section they could benefit from a daily probiotic supplement. AMommy's Bliss Probiotic Drops for babies  2013 Swedish study found that c-section babies had less gut diversity during the first two years of life than babies delivered vaginally. They are lacking the Bacteroides phylum, which helps the immune system respond to the right triggers. The study also found that some c-section babies have unbalanced levels of Th1 in their blood which makes them more susceptible to developing allergies.

Probiotics can also help with eczema, a study that appeared in the September 2013 issue of Clinical & Experimental Allergy found that early supplementation with probiotics can reduce the incidence of eczema in children up to 6 years old.

Mommy’s Bliss baby probiotics contain contain the live culture Lactobacilus rhamnosus GG, the most widely studied probiotic in the world with over 800 scientific publications attesting to the safety and healthfulness of these beneficial bacteria. If your baby was born via c-section giving a probiotic supplement could improve their gut bacteria and in turn make their immune system stronger and make them less susceptible to allergies and eczema.
