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.

These strips are a must have for a nursing mom who wants to drink occasionally. They will make you realize how long it really takes alcohol to clear your system. HOWEVER, sometimes you will get a box that is completely ineffective!!! When you first get a box you need to open one and dip it in alcohol to make sure the strips are effective. I had been using a box for a while when I became suspicious that my milk was testing negative for alcohol so quickly after having a drink. Eventually I tested one by dipping it straight into a glass of wine which it tested negative! I tried it again in straight vodka and again negative! When I went and bought a new box I tested the strips and they worked like they should. I had previously been nursing under the assumption that it took my body one hour to metabolize a drink but I found with these strips that it actually takes me 2 hours. So, over all a good product just make sure your box is effective first!

    Comments about Upscale 1009957 Upspring Milkscreen Test - 20 Count:

    I'm a new mommy, and I recently went to the winery's for my sister in laws 30th birthday. I was very nervous when I came home due to the day well spent enjoying great wine and cheese. However; after I pumped I used this product and it was idiot proof and fast!. I feel a lot more at ease knowing that I have this. I can be a great mom, and still relax and have a good time when needed, knowing that I have these strips :)

      I have not used this product yet; however, I have 2 mom friends who have used it while they were breast feeding. These allowed them to enjoy a nice glass of wine without fear of passing on any alcohol through their breast milk. I'm excited to try them.

        I now know that I can have a glass of red with dinner without fear of harming my baby. I also know that after the oh-so-rare night out, I will need to pump and dump when I get home. The only reason it's not five stars is the price.

            The first time I sent my husband out for these test strips, he got me that small package with 8 in them. Big mistake! I needed way more than 8. These strips are so handy and easy to use. They give me piece of mind & no reason to worry. I will definitely buy these again if 20 aren't enough.

              LO is 2 1/2 mo, and we had a wedding of a former college roommate to attend. I ended up having more than just the one glass of wine that I had intended. When we got home, I pumped and test the milk. Thanks to the test strip, I knew I needed to dump! The next morning I pumped then tested the milk again, this time the strip remained white so I did not need to waste anymore milk than I already had!
