Ambika, the nurse who fed infant Krsna with her own breast milk in Vraja, appeared during Lord Caitany's pastimes as Malini-devi, the wife of Srivasa Pandita.
(Sri Gaura-ganodesa-dipika - 42)

When Lord Kåñëa was a child, He was nursed by a woman named Ambikä, who had a younger sister named Kilimbikä.
(Sri Gaura-ganodesa-dipika - 43)

In the Gaura-gaëoddeça-dépikä - 90, Çréväsa Paëòita (Çréväsa Öhäkura) is described as an incarnation of Närada Muni, and Çré Räma Paëòita, his younger brother, is said to be an incarnation of Parvata Muni, a great friend of Närada’s. Çréväsa Paëòita’s wife, Mäliné, is celebrated as an incarnation of the nurse Ambikä, who fed Lord Kåñëa with her breast milk, and as already noted, his niece Näräyaëé, the mother of Öhäkura Våndävana däsa, the author of Çré Caitanya-bhägavata, was the sister of Ambikä in kåñëa-lélä. (CC - Adi.10.8)
