A novelty baby bottle that looks like a bottle of beer and “guaranteed to get double takes” is available in the US, hot on the heels of a strap-on flask made to look like a newborn baby.

The latest in novelty baby booze items, the Chill Baby is a milk bottle that looks like a bottle of beer. Available from Fredandfriends.com for $12, the novelty item is made with phthalate-free plastic and a food-grade silicone nipple and can hold 10 ounces of juice or milk.
“Double-takes are guaranteed when Junior is chugging his favorite beverage from Fred’s CHILL, BABY Li’l Lager baby bottle”, said its makers of the item. “No, it’s not beer, it’s just good old baby formula served up in a BPA-free, phthalate-free plastic bottle with a food-grade silicone nipple. Cheers!”
Fred and Friends is a Rhode Island-based design company with the aim of creating “well-designed stuff that solves a problem, puts a smile on your face, and doesn’t cost a fortune.”
It follows a Kickstarter campaign launched last month by a US entrepreneur, who is attempting to raise $70,000 to launch a strap-on booze-filled “newborn” that you can drink from.
Described as an “expressive, customizable, hands-free beverage insulator that looks like a baby”, the Cool Baby makes drinking in public “adorable”, according to its inventor, Brooklyn-based Simon Philion.
