Milkscreen: Home Test to Detect Alcohol in Breast Milk 8 Pack
Why use Milkscreen? Because all mothers are unique! So, naturally the way our bodies process alcohol is unique, too. Metabolizing alcohol depends on several factors including: Body weight Type of alcohol consumed Food intake In the past, there were only generalized guidelines for the questions surrounding breast feeding after consuming alcohol. Now, with Milkscreen, there is one simple method to let Mom know if alcohol is present in her breast milk. How Milkscreen works: Milkscreen consists of a plastic strip with a reactive test pad applied to one tip. Two minutes after saturation with breast milk the test pad will change colors if alcohol is present, at 13.1 mg/dL or greater.Milkscreen is a consumer product, and not intended to be used in the prevention, diagnosis or treatment of alcohol intoxication or poisoning or other health-related conditions in women or nursing babies.

Works great/fastDec 13, 2007
By S. Coffey
Product worked fast, and seemed accurate based on the 4 bottles that I tested (two I suspected had alcohol, the other not). My husband accidently mixed a clean bottle with a potentially contaminated one, and the strips even picked up the alcohol in the mixed one. Gives a mother peace of mind. Seems a little pricey for what you get (I bet it costs pennies to make these), but I still like them. That's the only reason for 4 stars instead of 5.

do what they're supposed toDec 09, 2009
"Engineer & Mommy"
I originally thought these strips would work more like litmus paper - you know, a different color for the degree of alcohol in my breastmilk. Guess I didn't really look at the description thoroughly, but not surprising in my sleep deprived state due to my newborn. If you're not dipping the strip directly into milk, it's a little tricky to saturate the pad on the test strip, but once you get the hang of it, these work as advertised. As a heads up, the color can take longer to develop if you don't fully saturate the pad.

Good idea...Oct 25, 2009
By Joanne Harkness
...but not necessary unless you're binge drinking and then trying to breastfeed immediately afterward. I've discovered that the alcohol gets metabolized out of your milk with time, so if you have 1 - 3 beers before you go to bed and then wake up to feed your baby 4 hours later, they milkscreen will show that it's okay. But if you want to be on the safe side, this is a nice tool to have.

Extra Peace of MindAug 10, 2011
I wish I knew about these sooner. They work great. I tested two different batches of milk and they both came up negative. So, I was nervous that maybe they weren't working. We dripped some beer directly on the strip and it instantly changed colors. I think I'll start giving these as baby shower gifts.

Works well.Jun 15, 2013
I loved this product. The only thing is that you make sure that you read the directions. When they mean no more than 2 mins and no less, they mean it.
