Remember how there were two Christopher Columbus movies? And two Alexander the Great movies (unfortunately, Oliver Stone played psycho chicken and drove Baz Luhrman's project off the road)? And two Capote movies? [the second one's coming soon.] If Hot New Ideas appearing simultaneously is the norm in Los Angeles, then no one but me will be surprised to learn that two parent-run companies have popped up within weeks of each other to deliver homemade organic gourmet baby food to your door.
Bohemian Baby's menu varies each week, so you can pick your own favorites or go with the chef's specials. BoBa emphasizes the milkman model, making twice-weekly deliveries to the refrigerated Bo Boxes they
provide sell their subscribers.
Homemade Baby, on the other hand, wants you to come to them--to their Culver City "baby food tasting room" [" Wine TastingsÖ Happy HoursÖ Early Bird SpecialsÖ So why do adults always get to have all the fun?"]. They also ship overnight--UPS Ground in LA, and UPS Overnite for the rest of the country. And HoBa is kosher to boot, but otherwise, they seem remarkably similar, down to the apple/carrot/tofu puree they both offer. But then, apple/carrot/tofu puree IS the must-have baby food this season...
Us, we just ground our own organic baby food. For a little while. Some other friends have the nanny make it, which seems very sensible to me. [But without a nannycam, how would you know if she's grinding kale or Pop-tarts?]
