Infant Feeding Therapy and Baby Colic Help was started by Annika Suarez, MS, CCC-SLP, CLC, CIMI. Annika is a speech-language pathologist, certified lactation counselor and certified infant massage instructor. Annika has been working in the field of speech-language pathology and specializing in infant and toddler population since 2012. She has attended several specialized trainings that focus on infant and toddler feeding difficulties and oral motor deficits. She is also the mother of a little boy who suffered from colic and feeding difficulties. She remembers the long, exhausting nights when her baby would cry for hours straight and couldn't be soothed. She sought out help for her baby's colic but she was unable to find anyone who had the knowledge and experience with baby colic that could help her and her baby. In order to find answers, Annika attended trainings and classes all geared around how to help babies who are suffering from it colic and feeding difficulties. She finally discovered the cause of her baby's colic and feeding difficulties and was able to take the necessary steps to help him. Annika has a passion for helping other parents find resources and possible causes of their baby's colic and help treat it. Annika is a member of the American Speech-Language Hearing Association (ASHA), Yoga Alliance, Healing Arts Alliance, La Leche League in Tallahassee and the International Affiliation of Tongue-tie Professionals (IATP).
