A Beer Bottle For Babies Helps Kids Unwind After A Long Day At The Park

If you thought pushing papers at the office all day was stressful, just imagine what your baby has to deal with. The average playground is a full-on obstacle course to an infant, with dogs to dodge, quicksand to avoid, and slides that seem a mile long. So when you kick back with a cold relaxing brew at the end of the day, your little one can do the same with their formula in this Lil’ Lager beer bottle for babies.
