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.

As far as the product goes- it really works! However, I think they are extra sensitive, which is good. The reason I rated this product that I bought through Babies R Us so low is because out of the package of 20 I have already found TWO packets that are actually missing the test strip. I paid about [$] (with S&H) for 20 test strips so for two to already be missing is a lot. I've only used about 5 too!

    Put a few drops of breastmilk on it and in 2 min you will know whether it's safe to feed your baby.. It's easy and I like to think it's accurate and reliable. I also know them to be hypersensitive to detecting alcohol so I know I'm being extra careful using these. The only negative is the price! Almost $2 a test strip.

        It was fast and easy to use. I would suggest a better color changing product when negative or positive for alcohol. When no alcohol is detected it doesn't change color much and it could leave risk for false test.

              This product was perfectly simple. Open package. Put milk on strip. Wait. Get results. The only reason I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 is the price. It works out to more than a dollar per strip. I used my first on on New Yeats Eve. Although they aren't cheap they do you give peace of mind and you can feel confident to nurse your baby.

                So I went to a breast feeding class and the instructor said repeatedly that you must pump and dump, which is total BS. I did my own research later.

                These strips work great, was able to use them several times and had peace of mind knowing I could safely feed my baby.

                Although, once or twice when I couldn't feed the baby, I got really anxious and wished I didn't know! But its my own fault, I guess I shouldn't have been drinking!

                Great product!

                  The strips are super easy to use & very convenient! Small & individually packaged which make them easy to travel with. I carry a few in my diaper bag or in my wallet in case I have an impromptu drink with family or friends. Because of the strips I've been able to figure out how many glasses of wine or beer i can drink before I get a positive. This way I don't waste a strip.
                  All in all I highly recommend! Wish I had after my other two were born.
