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!

              Product does what it is intended to do. Only critique would be to have the test strip change to a different color other than brown; i.e blue. Makes it easier to see!

                    Love this product. I have heard that waiting 2 hours is a good amount of time but I have noticed that sometimes it takes a little longer for alcohol to clear your system. I have an occasional glass or two of wine w my husband and I need to know for sure that baby is not exposed to any of the alcohol that could still be floating in my breast milk. This product gives me the comfort of knowing that baby is safe.

                      Its a good product but I think it may actually take longer than 2 minutes to see results. I have seen the strip stay white after two minutes but change color after five. So it still may not be an accurate guide for if there is still alcohol in your breast milk.
