The unnamed man proposed a toast at a party marking the baby turning one month old, when he was apparently goaded into giving the baby some of his drink.
The boy was taken back by his mum but had already begun struggling to breathe before being rushed to hospital where he died.
Friends and family of the infant had gathered at his parents’ home in Beijing on July 12 for the four-week anniversary, traditionally held to bless and celebrate a newborn, reports Sin Chew Daily.
The baby’s grandfather was the holding him when he proposed a toast before someone teased him that he could not take a drink unless the child did first.
The man is said to have given in to the peer pressure and poured some alcohol into his grandson’s mouth
