test for alcohol in breast milk

test for alcohol in breast milk

After nine long months of pregnancy many women are interested in having an occasional or celebratory drink but worry about passing any alcohol onto baby if they are nursing.  To give women peace of mind, one Mom invented Milkscreen — a simple 2 minute at home test that detects alcohol in breast milk. Mom simply expresses some breast milk onto the test strip and the color will begin to change if there is alcohol present. 

Studies show that infants consuming breast milk with an alcohol concentration at 0.03 percent or higher will eat and sleep less. The Milkscreen test is set to show a color change at 0.02 percent to let Mom know if her milk contains a level of alcohol that might negatively impact baby.  With Milkscreen, Mom can reclaim some of her social life but also continue breastfeeding with confidence.  No more guessing or unnecessary ‘pumping and dumping’ of precious breast milk. 
 
Milkscreen retails for $5.99 for a 3-pack of test strips at Walgreens, Babies R Us, Target and www.upspringbaby.com
