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!

      I used 3 test stripes because the coloring was unclear. I couldn't tell if it was turning brown or if it was just wet. Pretty useless to me. Oh yeah and on one of them the sticker came off

        These are pretty good! They are quick and easy to use which is nice. Im not 100% crazy about how you read the results----sometimes I question if I'm seeing a tad of red in there (which means there is still alcohol present), but I use formula anytime there is uncertainty. Other than that, there probably will never be another affordable test available.

            I was able to pump after having a couple drinks and loved that these test strips showed if there was still alcohol in my milk. I am not a big drinker at all but these were great knowing that my milk was free from alcohol before nursing my baby.

                    When alcohol is detected in your breast milk the strip changes color. So now I can enjoy a drink and not have to worry about my daughter being affected by it.

                    Great product. I had a beer when my baby was 4 weeks. I was still paranoid to pump even though I waited 4 hrs and took the milkscreen. Lol The test is easy to do and fast results.

                    The Milkscreen strips are very easy to use and understand! I LOVE the individual packaging so the I can put them in my purse, wallet, or diaper bag! The Milkscreen tests give moms the opportunity to enjoy a glass of wine with dinner or a cocktail with their friends and know if they need to "pump and dump" or have the "all clear" to feed their precious baby!

                    I bought the 20ct because Its obviously a better deal than the 8ct and you can use a 20% off coupon too. I don't plan on drinking heavily or often but it's good to have extras. It even says its sensitive to alcohol in the air? Anyways I tested a strip before I drank to have a before and after something I could compare it to when I do drink. Definitely gives me peace of mind even when I only had 1 glass of moscato after 2hrs. Never know everyone's body reacts differently with alcohol. Overall I really like the product it works even when I had 1 champagne after an 1hr.

                    There was not a great color example so after taking if the strip was a little grey, but not brown you question whether there is still alcohol present in your breastmilk. I never had a distinct brown color but some a little grey. Questionable results is not a good thing when you are worrying about your new baby.
