Product Description

Milkscreen Alcohol (8 pack) detects the presence of alcohol in breast milk. Simply saturate a small test pad with breast milk and then read the results in 2 minutes. ANY color change on the test pad at 2 minutes indicates that alcohol is present. After nine long months of pregnancy, some moms are interested in having an occasional or celebratory drink but worry about passing alcohol on to baby. Milkscreen provides peace of mind, so moms can breast feed with confidence. Milkscreen is an easy to use at home test to detect the presence of alcohol in breast milk. Milkscreen detects the presence of alcohol at 13.1 mg/dL or greater in breast milk. Some Moms mistakenly think that after just one alcoholic drink they are okay to breastfeed. However, about 2% of the alcohol Mom consumes will enter her bloodstream and breast milk. Because everyone metabolizes alcohol differently, the amount of time it takes for the alcohol to leave your breast milk also varies. Alcohol is not trapped in breast milk, and draining your breasts will not expedite the elimination of the alcohol out of your system. Over time your body will naturally metabolize the alcohol from your breast milk but the only way to know for certain that the alcohol is gone is to test your breast milk. A "feeling" of intoxication or non-intoxication is not an accurate indicator of determining if alcohol is present or not in breast milk.

The Milkscreen Home Test for Alcohol in Breast Milk features:

  • Detects the presence of alcohol in breast milk
  • Fast, accurate results in 2 minutes
  • Easier to read results and new package design
  • Peace of mind so you can breast feed with confidence

My husband was home on R&R from Afghanistan and wanted me to have a drink with him. He felt I deserved it since I wasn't pregnant anymore! I felt sooooo nervous because you never really know when the alcohol is gone. This test gave me the relief to feel like a good mommy AND enjoy a well-deserved night out with my hubby <3

Never got a positive maybe due to small amount of alcohol ..

A strip that tells you whether your milk contains a minimum amount of alcohol of 0.02% by placing a small drop or dipping it in breast milk. Results take 2 min. Seems very convenient if you decide momma needs a drink and you want to make sure the lil one is safe. I never got a positive, which made me wonder if they worked, then again I only had half a drink one time and sips of beer the next time. Since alcohol doesn't stay in breast milk it only passes through, that was the reason for my negative results. Plus I waited 3 hours from my last drink to test, which gave my body plenty of time to metabolize the small amount of alcohol. Very expensive, if you plan to drink it up often, since the strips cannot be re-used even if they were negative.

        I absolutely love this product! I'm a first time mother & after I had my baby, unfortunately I'm unable to produce a lot of breast milk. My family & doctor suggested drinking a small glass of wine to help me produce more but I was very nervous about it cuz I don't want it going into my breast milk. I have tried everything. I was about to give up. Then when I was walking around babies r us I saw these alcohol test strips & it gave me peace of mind knowing I can test my milk to see if it was safe for my baby. Now I'm producing a lot more milk & testing it right after knowing it's ok for my baby to drink! Awesome product! It's a must have for mother with the same issue.

          I'm 30 and my friends started having kids about 5 years ago, we like to get together for the occasional drink, concert, adult fun etc. Most of my mommy friends I know are just dying to get out there and have a drink after that beautiful, life changing YET painful as ever delivery :) SO! I love that with these they totally can and feel safe! Every woman I've ever given them to has been beyond happy and usually asks where they can get more! Thank you!!!

          After having some wine with the hubby during dinner, waited a couple hours but still wanted to make sure it would be safe to breastfeed the baby and it worked great.

            I always throw these in with gifts the I purchase for my friends who are expecting for the first time. They think the gift is hilarious. Then, after the baby is born they call me to ask if they actually work! Hahah .... Everyone loves a fun and practical gift.

                      These gave me peace of mind. Lady at store told me that pick up alcohol from household cleaners so it could be a false positive. FB pumping group that I am a part of say don't pump and dump...but I felt better dumping the milk if it means not harming my baby.
