Sooner or later, they are going to eat it anyway.

It's not gross. It's biology and chemistry. Nothing more, nothing less.

Whether or not it's properly applied, that's a question for someone else.

Yeah, there's some degree of this in a buncha places in the animal kingdom, and transplants have some interesting scholarship on them when it comes to immune function, weight loss/gain, buncha other stuff.

Biology is nasty. Stop trying to sugarcoat it. We're meat machines hosting trillions of other lifeforms on and inside of us, and those things have to get there somehow.

During a "normal" birth since time immemorial, a baby travels through the birth canal which also has urine excretion equipment installed, so the baby's gonna have a good chance of getting peed on as it's born. Also very nearby is the anus. Poop comes from there. So during birth the baby is likely to also come into contact with some sort of fecal matter, or at least the sort of bacteria that likes that area. Thus the baby is exposed to all this stuff as it enters the world, no need to go in after the fact to do fecal boosters or whatever. C-sections obviously bypass the nasty bits which deprives the baby of these apparently beneficial pee/poop encounters. It may be more palatable to "modern" western audiences, but it comes with a detriment. Like not breastfeeding.

Sure, if you want Hep-A mixed in there.
