Eating & Drinking Weird Baby

My Baby Has A Drinking Problem

Low key, my baby loves beer. Maybe it’s the Irish in him, but part of me things he likes beer more than me…

We’ve never let him drink beer before, but he’s gotten his hands on enough empty beer bottles to know the taste… and he likes it.

By five months old, I was sure that Baby Max would crawl over broken glass just to find a beer bottle he could put in his mouth. Not even kidding, he understood what to do with a beer bottle before he had fully grasped the baby bottle. Now that he’s walking, nothing on the coffee table is safe. 

When I was a kid, I learned how to swim by watching Pamela Anderson in Bay Watch one summer. My son? He learned how to crawl through sheer determination to reach the beer bottle across the room. At first, I thought it was just the green color of the Rolling Rock bottles that got his attention. But no matter the brand — Coors, Budweiser, Bud Lite, etc. — if you’re drinking out of a bottle, you’ve got his attention.

It’s to the point where no matter what toys we buy him, he’s most interested with wrapping his lips around an empty bottle from Old Latrobe…

But it’s not even beer bottles. Max Jr has an affinity for aluminum cans and pints as well.
