Serving the beach communities of Los Angeles, South Bay Mommies and Daddies is a parents guide to the South Bay including topics like safety, nutrition, health and wellness, education, activities for kids and much more. We have a robust calendar of family-friendly events in the South Bay, as well as a local business directory.
Inspired by her local community, founder Laura Stotland launched South Bay Mommies and Daddies as a resource for local parents to provide information and tips to raising their family in the South Bay.
After having her first child, Laura and a small group of local South Bay moms launched a private Facebook group for local moms to ask questions and share ideas about being first time moms and raising little ones. It’s a tough job, but the group offered support and advice that helped on many sleepless nights! The once small private Facebook group turned into a community, and before you knew it, there were 6,500 local moms in the group asking questions, providing support, and sharing ideas!
Since this group was so successful, a second group was launched called “What’s Happening in the South Bay,” a group dedicated to sharing information about local events in the area. Today, that group has nearly 3,500 members. Most recently, we have launched two new groups: South Bay Mommies & Daddies Giving Back and South Bay Disney Moms & Dads!
