Description

Trusted by moms for over 10 years, UpSpring MilkScreen Test Strips for Alcohol in Breast Milk detect alcohol in breast milk, even at low levels, so you can feel reassured knowing your breast milk is ready for your baby.

While the overall recommendations (by AAP, World Health Organization (WHO), and others) are to avoid alcohol, a small or standard drink is considered acceptable. Breastfeeding should be avoided for at least two hours after alcohol consumption. Alcohol is metabolized and eliminated from the bloodstream and breasts over time. As a result, it is not recommended to pump and dump the milk but rather wait before the next feeding if possible. No two women metabolize alcohol at the same rate. There are many factors that affect the metabolism of alcohol, such as body weight, the type and amount of alcohol you drink, and how much and when you've last eaten.

Easy, fast, and accurate, breastfeeding moms can celebrate and have peace of mind in just two minutes. Simply saturate the MilkScreen alcohol test strips with breast milk. If the test pad changes color at two minutes, alcohol is present (at or above 13.1 mg/dL). No more guessing. At UpSpring, we nurture the nurturers. So, you will feel cared for too. All our wellness solutions are made with love and backed by science.

This product is not intended to be used in the prevention, diagnosis, or treatment of alcohol intoxication, poisoning, or other health-related conditions in women or nursing babies.

One of my strip packages was completely empty… you’d think there would be better quality assurance with how much these cost.

I felt very uneasy about trusting these strips so I tested a strip before drinking, and it was negative and the. about an hour after a drink and it was positive.. I then tested it after sober and hours later and it was negative. Seems legit.

First strip is when I tested right after a few drinks and I decided to freeze for topical use. Second strip was from the next morning after the alcohol left my bloodstream and I fed to my baby. These really work and are so helpful for enjoying yourself while breastfeeding!

These are an interesting idea. Indicates when your milk is free from alcohol so you can feed without worrying. I tested after having a few wines and it detected it. Then tested the next morning and it was clear. I was gifted a product sample to trial and review.

Convenient

These are a convenient and accurate way to test for the presence of alcohol in breast milk. These strips are easy to use, simply dip the strip in a sample of breast milk and wait for the results to appear. The strips are able to detect alcohol levels as low as one glass of wine in breast milk, or a single serving of alcohol. One of the key benefits of these test strips is their convenience. The strips use a color-changing indicator to show the presence of alcohol, and the results are easy to read and interpret. Another advantage of these test strips is their convenience. They are small and portable, making it easy to take them with you wherever you go. Overall, they are a reliable and convenient way to test for alcohol in breast milk. They offer accurate results, are easy to use, and are portable, making them a great choice for balancing life as a new mom. I was gifted a product sample to trial and review.

They work! I drank more than half a bottle of sangria within 3 hours. Checked when it was time to pump and sure enough it worked! *if after 2 minutes the pad changes color: it detected alcohol.

Does not work, I tested 3 tests back to back. The first 2 tests never changed color, the 3rd test also didn’t change color after 2 minutes. I left the 3rd test on my table and checked it an hour later and saw that it had changed color to detect alcohol in my system. As others have mentioned I agree that these tests do not work. They should not be advertised to make us mothers believe they will work.

I was surprised this didn't show any coloration after having 2 glasses of wine over 2 hours, but let formula fed just incase because I felt more comfortable. for curiosities sake I dipped the test strip in a glass of wine and it still did not change color and give a positive result so either I got an old product or it gives false negatives.

I liked the concept but I could not really tell if the strip was positive or negative. Buy at own risk
1 reply from Upspring Product Expert team - 2 years ago
Hi Jasmin, Thank you for your feedback. We are sorry to hear that you were not completely satisfied. Milkscreen has been scientifically proven to detect alcohol at 13.1 mg/dL. Any color change at the two minute mark indicates the detection of Alcohol in the breast milk. If the pad remains white, Alcohol above 13.1 mg/dL is not detected. I hope this helps in future testing.

I have no clue if this works…maybe wine was out my system but i went on a whim and tested early than the suggested 4 hr wait time for two glasses of wine (kinda had three technically) and it was negative…i tasted the alcohol on my breath..did it again and nothing. Seems fishy and scary. Three stars bc really nice to have…just can’t prove if accurate

These test strips work really well! I was skeptical at first because of some of the negative reviews that people posted but either they somehow got duds or they didn’t know how to use them or read them. I’ve used these on two separate occasions this year so far and they give a quick result and I believe it’s accurate because I tested every time I pumped, which was every few hours and it did have results that corresponded with the decrease on alcohol throughout the night. My only complaint is that I wish I bought a bigger pack!

These do not work!!! Went out and had a few drinks, bought these to make sure my breast milk was safe for baby, tested negative, do not trust these results!!! Good concept, but not accurate!!!

Upspring's Milkscreen indicates whether alcohol is present at or above 13.1mg/dL in your breastmilk. Furthermore, every woman metabolizes alcohol differently, and the amount of time it takes for the alcohol to leave the breast milk supply may last a longer or shorter time period for you. Body weight, type/amount of alcohol consumed, and food intake will all affect alcohol metabolism. If the alcohol had already metabolized out of your system, this could be the reason for the initial negative result.
