The 9 month Christmas present

Today is expected to be the busiest day for baby arrivals with the day falling 39 weeks and two days after Christmas Day.

For parents, who now have their new bundle of joy or are still expecting, how do you as new parents make sure they have the right nutrition and vitamins to keep them healthy and happy?

It comes as new research shows 73% of UK parents with children under 4 wouldn’t be able to tell their child the role of the gut within the human body. Furthermore, 55% don’t understand what the microbiome is. It’s led to 43% who claim their lack of awareness has led to their children not getting gut-friendly bacteria to support their baby’s health.

The findings by Colief Multibiotic Drops discovered almost half (45%) were not aware of the benefits of gut-friendly bacteria and a further 79% have not given gut-friendly bacteria in the crucial first year of their child’s life.
