Home test to detect the presence of alcohol in breast milk.
About 2% of the alcohol you consume will enter your bloodstream and breast milk. Because all mothers are unique, so is the way our bodies process alcohol. Metabolizing alcohol depends on several factors including:
- Body weight, type of alcohol consumed and food intake
In the past, there were only generalized guidelines for questions surrounding breast feeding after consuming alcohol. Now, with Milkscreen, mom can test her breast milk to see if alcohol is present.
- Home test for alcohol inbreast milk
- Easy to use
- Results in 2 minutes
- Provides peace of mind so you can breastfeed with confidence
- Why was milkscreen created?
Milkscreen was created to help extend the life of breastfeeding. Many women wish to resume occasional to moderate alcohol consumption while breastfeeding, but are concerned about still having alcohol in their breast milk. Maternal self-confidence is critical to long term breastfeeding so we created milkscreen to give mom peace of mind that her breast milk does not contain alcohol.
- I don't feel intoxicated – why use the Milkscreen test?
A "feeling" of intoxication or non-intoxication is not an accurate indicator when determining if alcohol is present in breast milk. The only way to know if alcohol is still present is to test your breast milk.
- Can't I just "pump and dump" my breast milk after drinking alcohol?
Pumping breast milk (i.e. the "pump and dump" method) does not eliminate alcohol from the breast milk. The only way to clear alcohol from the bloodstream and breast milk is to wait an extended period of time.
