Our beginnings

Mas & Pas was started in north London out of a frustration to find basic parenting information online when we had our first children. Things like comprehensive lists of weaning foods, sleep training or gentle parenting techniques were just some of them.

There was also a lot of conflicting information out there about parenting techniques and styles. One study found that permissive parenting was great, while another found that it’s damaging to our kids. It was hard to tell which parenting styles were best, and we often ended up completely confused.

Our mission is to give you the full picture. We include arguments and research both for and against each parenting style or technique. That way you can make the most important decision – which path is right, for you.

We’re not a parenting manual – we don’t believe there is any one way to parent. We are a guide, a helpful resource that’s here to offer information, inspiration or support.

Your parenting village

Every parent needs a parenting village. We all face problems and we all need support from time to time.

Here you can find a quiet and positive space in online community forums. They cover a range of topics and kids’ ages. Find a supportive ear for any question or worry, away from the judgemental comments or aggressive members that can take over other groups.

Instead of criticising parenting styles that are different from our own, we are firm believers that different things work for different families.

Whether you breastfed or bottle-fed, sleep trained or co-slept, loved baby led weaning or purees, if it worked for you, then great!

The one thing that we do have in common is that we love our kiddos with our whole hearts and we do our very best by them.
