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!

      Definitely read the directions and pay close attention to the square before and after, as even a little change indicates alcohol in the breast milk.

          These test strips are amazing! They are fast and accurate and require the smallest amount of breast milk to test. I was a little hesitant about them at first and actually tested milk when I know it would test positive (30 minutes after a glass of wine) and it turned black (positive) so I knew they did in fact work. They are a little pricey but worth it.

                      I'm a working mom who went to work as soon as my baby was out. Had him on a Friday and was back to work on Monday. Stress comes with this and then some. I like to have a drink here and there. My first drink was an apple ale that was 5% alcohol. I finished two and was DONE so I took this this test and the results were immediate. I had alcohol in my milk and an hour later I still had some. The test did a great job of telling me the alcohol was there so that I didn't feed my baby my milk.

                            These strips are great to have on hand. For my own peace of mind, I like to test my milk after I've had more than a single glass of wine at dinner. These strips help guide your decisions when you choose to drink while Breastfeeding.

                            It's hard to read the results on the test strip. I've used them 2 times now & it seems they have been the same... The 1st time I thought it would say there's too much alcohol in my milk but it didn't. I know lots of mommies use these & really count on them to work. No sure if I would buy this again. Need to test them more.

                              I bought these for when I have an occasional drink for some piece of mind while I nurse my daughter. I've only tried them once, shortly after drinking one beer and it came back negative. I have yet to see a positive.

                                Wasn't expecting them to be so expensive, but well worth it. I was planning to pump and dump but when it came time to dump I just couldn't waste the liquid gold so ran out and got these strips in the morning. The results came back negative so I'm glad I didn't end up wasting 2 8oz bottles. Very easy to use even after my first night out :)
