Product Overview

Details:

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.

Details

An occasional glass of wine to relax. Margaritas on girls' night. A beer at the ball game. Motherhood doesn't mean you have to give it all up. If you've assumed that an occasional drink is incompatible with breastfeeding, you've assumed wrong. Milkscreen® is the best-selling home test to detect alcohol in breast milk with over 10 million tests sold. With Milkscreen, breastfeeding moms can enjoy an alcoholic beverage (beer, wine or hard alcohol) but then test their milk to ensure they are not passing unwanted alcohol on to baby. Milkscreen is accurate and easy to use with test results in only 2 minutes. Milkscreen is highly sensitive and detects even very low levels of alcohol. To use Milkscreen mom saturates the test pad with a few drops of breast milk. She then reads the test results at 2 minutes. Any color change on the test pad 2 minutes after saturation indicates that alcohol is present. No color change on test pads means that alcohol is not present. For over 10 years, Milkscreen has been the trusted brand for breastfeeding moms, lactation consultants and pediatricians. Milkscreen is made in the USA and patent pending.
