The Ba was initially invented by Travis Hendricks, a rock-and-roll dad who wanted something to help his daughter better hold her own bottle. He set out creating prototypes out of whatever he could find around the house and snapped some photos. After getting some extremely positive feedback from his first very crude models, he gathered three other just as interesting fellows, and together they formed The Original Baby.
Those four guys – a single dad, a lawyer, a designer, and a rock and roller (not the most common combination of friends) – started the company in early 2011. After some bad jokes, trials, and errors, they finally realized success since those first house-made models, leading to the quality product you see now.
“We’re not just dads, we’re dad-preneurs, and we hope you enjoy our products.”
