BBL 038: How to Give Baby Healthy Gut Flora

Microbiota has a lifelong influence on your baby’s health. What can you do to give your baby healthy gut flora – also know as “the good bacteria?” That’s what I talk about in this podcast. If you’re pregnant or TTC you’re in luck, because you can make a big difference right now. I also outline strategies for you after baby arrives!

  • What to eat, and what you shouldn’t
  • A simple-to-make food that heals the digestive system
  • How to tell if foods really have good bacteria
  • Why pregnant women love pickles and ice cream

  • How to have a calmer, happier baby
  • What dads can do to influence good gut flora in baby
  • Why super-mild soap (or maybe no soap) is your friend
