Why is Milk and Honey considered Specialized?
Unlike traditional lactation support, we use a multi-disciplinary approach to treat infants and their families struggling to feed and/or grow well.
Our providers include Speech Pathologists, RNs, IBCLCs and Occupational Therapists to provide support to families struggling with more complex feeding challenges, with an emphasis on breastfeeding and lactation.
Infant issues may include latch issues, weak or discoordinated suck, swallowing issues (i.e. dysphagia), breast aversion, oral aversion, infant weight gain concerns, failure to thrive and difficulty transitioning to solids.
These issues are
often secondary to underlying infant medical diagnoses, which could include ankyloglossia, cleft lip/palate, prematurity, torticollis, hypotonia, cardiac involvement or other medical conditions that may impact feeding.
Issues may also be secondary to various maternal factors such as a low milk supply, delayed lactogenesis, insufficient glandular tissue, plugged ducts or mastitis.
