You can soon buy baby bottles that look like beer bottles. Bad idea?

Would you buy a baby bottle that looked like a beer bottle?

Babies don't drink beer, and for good reason. But if you'd like for all the parents in your Mommy & Me class to give you dirty looks -- and question your sanity -- you can now at least give the illusion of handing your child a baby beer bottle. 

Perpetual Kid, an online retailer, is listing a Chill, Baby Lil' Lager Baby Bottle on its website. It's a baby bottle made to look like a beer bottle. When your kid is at afternoon snack, it will look like he or she is throwing back a cold one.  

Ideally, parents will fill the 10-ounce bottle with baby formula or milk, not beer -- because they have enough of a sense of humor to make their kids drink from a baby beer bottle, but they're not crazy enough to give them actual beer. Which, again, would be bad. (Also bad: giving your dog beer. Just a reminder.) 

The bottle is made of BPA-free, phthalate-free plastic and comes with a food-grade silicone nipple. 

The for-baby beer bottle is $11.99 and is to be available in April.  

If you are going to buy this for your baby, it's only appropriate he or she wear a flannel shirt, a fake beard and some denim. 

One time, not at camp, I drank wine out of a sippy cup. Follow me on Twitter @Jenn_Harris_
