Milkscreen Test for Alcohol in Breast Milk (20-Pack)
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:
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.
- Body weight, type of alcohol consumed and food intake
- 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 Moms 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 have set the milkscreen test to show a color change at 0.02% to help Mom stay within recommended feeding guidelines. To use Milkscreen simply saturate test pad with a few drops of breast milk and read results in exactly 2 minutes. If there is any color change on test pad alcohol is present.
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.
