Hi!  I’m Shari Criso and the lead “expert” and founder of My Baby Experts.  

My work with new and expecting parents began 30 years ago as a Labor and Delivery Nurse, where I supported thousands of women through their birth experiences.  I loved the special bond I had with my patients during this sacred time so much that I decided to return to school and become a Certified Nurse Midwife in order to work even closer with the women I serve and give them the control over their experience through pregnancy, birth and the transition into motherhood.  I had a private practice for 8 years, where where I personally assisted in the births of over 600 babies!

After the birth of my daughter in 2002, I found an overload of information to sift through. Hundreds of top parenting books, online websites, and lots of conflicting advice and information about breastfeeding, parenting, baby products.  It was so overwhelming and confusing.  I found myself struggling with breastfeeding early on, even though I was following the standard breastfeeding information I had been taught. I  realized that if a medical expert like myself was  struggling this much even after all of the education I received in school and in my career DELIVERING BABIES, then so many other moms must be struggling even more!  It was a wake up call to find the answers, provide the support and create the space where I could help new moms make the transition into new motherhood easier and more joyful.

Over the next 10 years, I dedicated my focus and time to learning, simplifying, and then teaching the most essential information that new parents need to know about pregnancy, childbirth, breastfeeding, baby care, reducing common household toxins, and how to find the “right” baby products that make the biggest difference.  I became an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant to learn everything I could about breastfeeding to be able to support woman with this challenging aspect of new parenting.

In 2001, I opened a specialty store and learning center called “The Birth Boutique”.  For over 12 years, the store was the trusted resource for education and products for thousands of new parents throughout NJ and NY.  Although I closed the local store in 2011, I expanded my  ability to reach new parents by focusing on sharing my education online.  In 2009, I started the Live WebTV show called “My Baby Experts” (that now has over 140 episodes) and published several full length video courses, so that new moms could learn online with me anywhere in the world!

Knowledge, accurate information, and positive support is the only way to make real choices for yourself and your baby.  I believe EVERYONE deserves to have that.  This membership site is the result of 30 years of experience that I have gathered as a medical provider, an educator, and a mom.  I am committed to supporting you through this very important phase of your life.  

Welcome to My Baby Experts!  
I am so happy you are here!

The Stages of Breastfeeding

I have supported thousands of new moms to breastfeed.  There’s a lot to know and it’s all important but it is also important to focus on what you need, when you need it.

All of the breastfeeding content is divided into stages that you will go through on your journey.  Except for birth, there are no set times for these stages, only individual milestones that you will reach with your baby.  Everyone’s journey is different and at times the stages may overlap each other.

"A baby is born but so is a mother,
going through her own journey."
