MilkScreen is an easy-to-use at home test that detects alcohol in breast milk.
Because everyone metabolizes alcohol differently, the amount of time it takes for alcohol to leave your breast milk also varies. When you drink, alcohol gets in your bloodstream, not your breasts, so expressing your milk will not get the alcohol out of your system any more quickly. You may be throwing away breast milk unnecessarily or feeding your baby breast milk that still has alcohol in it. With MilkScreen, you many never have to pump and dump again.

HOW IT WORKS:
To use MilkScreen, simply express a few drops of breast milk on to the test ship. If the color pad changes color after exactly 2 minutes, alcohol is present.
To ensure optimal results, please read MilkScreen Alcohol test results exactly 2 minutes after saturating test pad with breast milk. Reading the test results before or after 2 minutes may cause an incorrect result.
What is MilkScreen?
MilkScreen is a simple test that takes two minutes to detect the presence of alcohol in breast milks.
How does it work?
MilkScreen consists of a plastic strip with a reactive test pad applied to one tip. Two minutes after saturation, the tip with change color if alcohol is present at or aboce 13.1 mg/dL.
Should I use MilkScreen if I don't feel intoxicated?
A feeling of intoxication is not an accurate measure of determining if there is alcohol in breast milk. Because everyone metabolizes alcohol differently, the amount of time it takes for alcohol to leave your breast milk also varies.
Can I test using refrigerated milk?
You may use breast milk that has been refrigerated or frozen, but milk must be brought to room temperature before testing. When milk is at room temperature, gently swirl the bottle containing breast milk and pour a small amount into a container and perform the test.
I read results at two minutes but then noticed a while later that my test pad had darkened in color. What does this mean?
MilkScreen results should be read two minutes after saturating the test pad with breast milk. Test pad may continue to darken over time (even if alcohol is NOT present) due to continued exposure to oxygen in the air. Therefore, the result at exactly two minutes is the test result you should refer.
Do the MilkScreen test strips have an expiration date?
Yes the expiration date is embossed on the back of each foil pouch containing an alcohol test strip. It is also noted on the outside of the packaging on a sticker under LOT - expiration date will be shown by year and month.
Why was MilkScreen created?
Many women wish to resume occasional low and moderate alcohol consumption after delivery, but are often concerned about the presence of alcohol in their breast milk. Maternal self-confidence is critical to maintaining breastfeeding, MilkScreen was created to help give mom the peace of mind that her breast milk does not contain alcohol.
