"Are you concerned about a possible tongue tie?  Is your baby suffering with reflux, colic, or slow weight gain?  Helping mama's and babies figure out their own breastfeeding dance is my favorite thing to do. The sound of precious little swallows warms my heart.  However, it's not always cute coos and milky smiles, is it ladies?  Sometimes there's tears and lots of them.  That's okay.  Breastfeeding is a learned dance specific to each family.  Being in your home we can process through those tears.  Never rushed, I give mama and baby the time they need for diaper changes, teaching, soothing, and a full feed (or two).  If there is the possibility of an oral restriction, I have the experience and extra training to properly assess and manage tongue ties and oral rehabilitation.  I offer quality, expertise, and loving service for all my families." - Montika


Montika started working with my daughter when she was just 2 weeks old due to her inability to properly latch at the breast and having colic. Montika helped her get a better latch through the use of body work and cranial sacral fascia therapy. My daughter had her tongue and lip ties lasered 4 weeks ago. Montika visits us 2-3 times a week now and helps us with oral exercises and stretches to insure the integrity of the procedure. I HIGHLY recommend Innovations Lactation and Breastfeeding service to for any baby who struggles with feedings, has colic, difficulty napping, or reflux issues. Montika has helped my daughter so much with her natural instinct with babies. We have seen a huge improvement in my daughter’s overall demeanor: she is less fussy at the breast, has a better latch, is more relaxed, sleeps better, and is overall much happier. We no longer feel like our baby is suffering, and we are thrilled with the results we are seeing.
