Mamas & Papas is an expanding company that has been owned by the same family since its birth 30 years ago. 30 years ago, founders of Mamas & Papas, David and Luisa, became parents and when they looked around for baby equipment, they decided what they were looking for wasn’t available in shops. And so they decided to set up their own company - Mamas & Papas - to create a choice for parents that they couldn’t find previously. Today, David and Luisa’s children, Amanda and Olivia, are also parents and are involved in the running of the business. Mamas & Papas are very much a company whose products are designed by parents, for parents and the company is continuing to expand all over the world.
