You might have heard the term microbiome, or maybe you haven’t.
Either way, it’s something we all have, but tend not to put much thought into.
Put simply, the human microbiome is the collection of microorganisms which live on us – our skin, in the saliva and mouth, the eyes and in the gut.
Its condition is really important throughout our lives, but it’s the first 1000 days of a baby’s life that are the most crucial for shaping baby’s microbiome.
The health of bub’s microbiome is influenced by many factors including prematurity, how they were delivered, their environment, antibiotic use and diet.
Importantly, the microbiome plays a pivotal role in our health for our entire lives.
The key elements in an infant’s gut help balance and restore intestinal bacterial flora, preventing colonisation by pathogens, improving the functionality of the gut and the overall immune system.
If this microbial community becomes disturbed, it can bring with it a range of symptoms.
