The most accurate and comprehensive look at your baby’s gut microbiome

We are the first and only baby gut health test that can detect all bacteria, fungi, protozoa and parasites. All it takes is a simple stool swab.

Our baby gut report is revolutionary because it is tailored specifically to your baby's age. We show key metrics that are important to support your baby's lifelong immune health according to their precise gut maturation milestone.

Results you can actually trust

Most gut microbiome tests, including the ones that doctors prescribe, only detect a limited set of microbes. Or use a cheaper, lower quality screening technology called 16S. Tiny Health is the only baby gut test in the market using metagenomic sequencing, the gold standard in microbiome research.

Start making precise, data-driven decisions for your baby's health today.

Microbiome Breakdown

This part of the report shows all the microbes found in your baby's sample and allows us to understand how their microbes interact as a community. You can see how much of each microbe is present down to a 0.05% abundance level, something that no other baby gut test is doing.

Beneficial vs Unfriendly

See the proportions of friendly and unfriendly bacteria in your baby's gut, which can have a significant impact on their development.

Full list of microbes

Get a complete list of all the species we detected and their abundances, with explanations of what these microbes' functions are, complete with references to the scientific studies behind them.

Conditions

This section of the report will help you determine if your baby may have a higher microbiome risk for certain conditions like eczema, allergies, or asthma.  

These are predictive biomarkers

Within specific ages, we can show if your baby has a microbiome that is correlated with the risk of developing certain conditions later.

If your baby already has this condition, you can see what may be triggering inflammation and how to address them in our Key Insights section.

Always up to date

We constantly update these associations as new peer-reviewed research becomes available.

“When you get health information, people tell you to check with your provider. But often times the providers don’t have the type of knowledge about the early life gut microbiome that Tiny Health does.”
Lauren B.
”After so many formula changes, we weren’t sure how to interpret the results. The Tiny Health Team did a real time review of the formulas we’ve used and how they could influence our baby's microbiome.”
Lillian H.
“My baby has a lot of symptoms and her gut had many items that needed support, so I wasn’t sure what I should prioritize. I was really grateful to speak to a qualified pediatrician who studied microbiology at Tiny Health, and that really clarified the approach and protocols that I would take to start improving my baby’s gut health. I will definitely resample after each step, so that I know what’s working and what’s not.”
Natasha L.
“It was so reassuring to learn that the actions I’ve been taking are helping my children have good gut health. Encourages me to keep them up.”
Paige G.
“My husband and I did the test together (I’m currently pregnant) and I really loved that Tiny Health’s membership came with special discounts to supplements. We received really tailored advice based on our lifestyle and were blown away by how much time the team took to research whether our current supplements were good for us. We’re excited to test frequently with our baby.”
Abby B. 
“Talking with the Tiny Health Team we were able to get specific recommendations about options for probiotic brands and dietary change and guidance on how long we should try them before re-sampling.”
Mallory J.
“The super detailed report analysis went through all my baby’s symptoms, made connections to his gut results and also analyzed all the probiotics he’s been taking to give me clues on what may have worked or not worked. It made me feel 100% heard. Just getting this level of reporting itself is worth the membership price alone.”
Elizabeth Y.
“Speaking with the experts at Tiny Health helped me to prioritize the actions I could take to improve gut health and to make decisions around re-testing based on the actions I was planning to take.”
Brittany O.
“The biggest takeaway from my consultation call was to focus on strategies to increase beneficial bacteria rather than get rid of unfriendly bacteria. We’re often so focused on getting rid of bad stuff, that the opposite might work better! I don’t think I would’ve come away with that on my own.”
Alyssa F.
“Wonderful service - I had such an informative conversation and guidance from Cheryl and Kim. I've ordered all the recommended supplements and will be working with my naturopathic doctor to follow up with some issues we identified. I love that I’m learning about upcoming pregnancy tests and can already start taking action to improve my health rather than to wait for a negative test to show up later. Thanks for providing this essential knowledge to help moms and families navigate gut health!”
Mary B.
“I have found that it is very rare for a pediatrician or even functional medicine practitioner to be on top of the details of specific bacteria within the gut. My doctors do not have such information. While the written report had lots of information and some suggestions, the reasoning and tradeoffs behind the recommendations came alive by talking to you about it.”
