MilkScreen Milk Alcohol Strips $16.00 for pack of 8 strips
MilkScreen is an easy to use at home test to detect the presence of alcohol in breast milk. MilkScreen detects the presence of alcohol at 13.1 mg/dL or greater in breast milk.
Some Moms mistakenly think that after just one alcoholic drink they are okay to breastfeed. However, about 2% of the alcohol Mom consumes will enter her bloodstream and breast milk. Because everyone metabolizes alcohol differently, the amount of time it takes for the alcohol to leave your breast milk also varies. Alcohol is not trapped in breast milk, and draining your breasts will not expedite the elimination of the alcohol out of your system.
Over time your body will naturally metabolize the alcohol from your breast milk but the only way to know for certain that the alcohol is gone is to test your breast milk. A "feeling" of intoxication or non-intoxication is not an accurate indicator of determining if alcohol is present or not in breast milk.
Directions at a Glance:
