Product Description

In just two minutes, milkscreen quickly and accurately analyzes breast milk for alcohol. Every mother is unique so, naturally, the way our bodies metabolize alcohol is unique, too. Metabolizing alcohol depends on several factors including body weight, type of alcohol consumed, and food intake so milkscreen was created to eliminate those variables. Milkscreen also helps ensure that the alcohol concentrated in Mom's breast milk is not at a level that may have negative impacts on Baby. Studies have shown infants consuming breast milk with alcohol concentrations at approximately 30mg/dl, or 0.03%, and higher have exhibited distinctive changes in feeding behavior and sleep. Babies consume less if the milk contains alcohol and they also sleep less and wake more frequently. We've set the milkscreen test to show a color change at 0.02% to help Mom stay within recommended feeding guidelines.

Features

  • Every woman metabolizes alcohol differently so milkscreen allows Mom to relax and remove the guesswork!
  • Milkscreen measures the amount of alcohol in the breast milk to help ensure that there are no negative impacts on Baby.
  • Fast and easy-to-read results.
  • Pediatrician recommended and Lactation Consultant approved.

I took a breastfeeding class before my son was born and I did learn that you DON'T have to "pump and dump" if you have an occasional alcoholic beverage. Alcohol metabolizes in your system and our class was basically told that, once you longer feel the effects of alcohol, you're fine to nurse your baby. Also, the concentration of alcohol is usually highest in breastmilk anywhere from 30 mins to 1.5 hours after consumption. The time it takes will depend on how much alcohol you've had, your weight, food ingested, etc.

Well, my husband still wasn't as convinced so, even if I didn't feel any effects after having a small glass of wine or a beer, I would wait at least a couple of hours just to be on the safe side.

Imagine my surprise when I was picking up breastfeeding supplies and saw this product! I thought it can't be this easy, right? The first couple of times I used the strips, I had the same results and reaction as a previous reviewer--negative for questionable amount of alcohol and wondering if this product really works. Now, both times I only had one drink, waited a couple of hours (I had bottles of expressed milk on hand) and then tested before bed (so I could nurse my son).

After feeling like I might have wasted my money, I still decided to keep using them (they're already paid for) and was glad I did. The third use showed alcohol in my system. I had two small glasses of wine and tested about an hour after finishing the 2nd glass. I waited a couple more hours and retested which then showed it was safe to breastfeed.

This is great for any breastfeeding mother who would like an occasional drink. It's no substitute for common sense nor would I make it a habit of drinking just because I can test my milk. Alcohol has been known to decrease milk supply so I only have a drink on occasion.

I bought these strips 1 week ago. I am a first time breastfeeding mom with two previous formula feed children. I was afraid of alcohol present in my milk and would not touch alcohol until I had these strips in my possession.
I enjoyed the easy to use ability of the strips and how quickly the results occurred.
I did not appreciate the confusing instructions on the individual packages- they had a time lapse displayed and it was confusing whether it was seconds or minutes for the result- you had to refer to the box instructions to verify it was for minutes.

I have used these strips while pumping with both of my daughters and they really work. I have tested them while knowing I was in various states of sober (or not). They are expensive but I think they are worth it.

Easy to use, takes only 2 minutes! Gives you peace if mind before feeding baby after a glass of wine! I have had one kind of turn brownish around the edge but tested again and was negative. They are priced a little high but worth it in my opinion.

    Comments about Upscale 1009957 Upspring Milkscreen Test - 20 Count:

    I used the test strips after having my first alcoholic beverages after baby. I am exclusively breast feeding so knowing that had the strips to test my milk. I liked that the strips were easy to store with my pump, but would have preferred if they weren't individually wrapped as I had to use two test for each side that I pumped. Other than that I was glad I purchased the test strips

        Comments about Upscale 1009957 Upspring Milkscreen Test - 20 Count:

        These are very handy to have around. It had been well over a year since I had a glass of wine and I wanted to make sure I did not give the baby any residual alcohol.
        The strips work in a couple of minutes and give you piece of mind. I have used them a few times now and can say you don't know for sure when your body might pass the alcohol, so this lets me know when the milk is safe.
        Make sure to test a sample of milk and not the bottle. The directions are easy to follow on the package.
