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

The breast milk alcohol testing strips are easy and convenient to use. To get results you squirt a drop of breast milk onto a tab and within minutes you have results. It's really nice as a breast feeding mom to be able to enjoy a few alcoholic drinks on special occasions and know whether its safe to breast feed your baby or not. But the strips only indicate the presence of alcohol in your breast milk. It would be nice to have a scale of how much alcohol was present with a predicted timeline of when it would clear your system. This way you could plan when you should test again without wasting a whole bunch of strips, they are expensive.

            Every mom deserves a night out with friends she hasn't seen in a while, albeit missing the little one the entire night. For breastfeeding babies, this is perfect to check pumped milk, especially when weight fluctuates within the months following birth. It is best to be safe, and not harm the teeny, tiny one's teeny tiny liver. 8 strips is plenty for me and it will last a while. I suggest that the box explain if there are any changes to the milk strip, even slight, what it suggests. There are only two options, but no explanation for any gradations.

              The strips are very easy to use. I actually recently used my first one in the car on the way home from a nice birthday dinner with my husband. Each test is individually wrapped to keep it from being exposed to anything that could give a faulty reading. Simply express some of your milk and soak the square indicator of the strip, wait 2 minutes and voolah! The box shows what to look for to read results. There's nothing wrong with enjoying a drink or two once in a while. This is such a great little test to give moms everywhere that peace of mind before feeding their baby. Something so simple to help keep baby safe is a winner in my book! I would definitely recommend having a box of these in your medicine cabinet, maybe even throw a strip or two in your purse. Especially with the summer approaching.

                I purchased the milks reen alcohol test strips after them being recommended by another breastfeeding friend. They are great to test if your milk is safe for your child after having drinks. They are a little pricey but drinking while breastfeeding should be rare enough that's it not really a big deal.

                      This product is extremely easy to use. The instructions are very detailed so you can make sure you are using the product correctly. I bought these for when I occasionally have a drink to make sure none of the alcohol gets to my breast milk.

                      This product was useful. I drank for the first time and my baby is about 2 weeks old. I wasn't sure if I'd have to pump and dump, but luckily the strips indicated there was alcohol in my milk so it wasn't safe for baby to eat. I wouldn't have known if it wasn't for these strips.
