Gut microbiota colonization during the first months of life is a complex and essential process that develops in parallel with the maturation of the immune system. Alterations during this period may have direct effects on health outcomes later in life. In this review, we summarize the influence of early gut microbiota colonization on the maturation of the immune system and health during the first 1000 days of life. Evidence of the influence of perinatal factors, such as antibiotic intake, mode of delivery, and breastfeeding, on balanced gut immunity development were also addressed.View Paper here.
