The first 1,000 days of your baby's life? No big deal. It just sets the pace for a lifetime of health.
Don't worry. We've got you covered.
Your microbiome is the 38 trillion microbes that live with you. And your baby inherits them at birth.
While most microbes hang out in the gut, their influence reaches far beyond digestion. From protection against food allergies and asthma to healthy brain development, your baby's microbes work for them.
Most of the time.
Tiny Health offers microbiome tests for expectant parents and babies to
detect gut imbalances that are linked to:
Your baby inherits its microbiome from the mother at birth via a colonization process called seeding. These microbes are essential to develop your baby's immune system.
Optimal seeding happens when the baby is vaginally born without antibiotics.
Certain events during pregnancy, labor and in infancy can disrupt this process and cause imbalances in your baby's gut. Fortunately, studies have shown that restoration is possible if action is taken early, and before your baby's microbiome fully matures by 3 years old.
