The infant microbiome is distinctly different to that of the adult and older child. It is vital for practitioners to understand these differences in order to accurately interpret infant and young children microbiome test results.

The infant and young child microbiome appears to develop in a sequential manner. Each stage appears to have important functions for priming and training the infants immune and metabolic systems. Research findings are not surprisingly suggesting that early disturbances may have lasting effects to infant health. During this webinar you will gain a thorough understanding of the current knowledge of the infant microbiome including modifiers, disturbers and nurturers. You will gain key practice interventions to protect and nurture the infant microbiome, as well as strategies to reduce the impact of unavoidable disturbances.

You will learn how to protect and support this transitioning ecosystem through the important stages in its evolution.
