UpSpring Milkscreen Alcohol Test Strips | 8 Count
Many nursing moms have asked themselves the question: can I drink while breastfeeding? The answer is yes! The American Academy of Pediatrics states that nursing mothers can have an occasional alcoholic drink (equivalent of a 12-oz beer, 4-oz glass of wine, or 1-oz of liquor) but that she should wait at least two hours per drink before breastfeeding. However, because every woman’s body is unique, the rate at which we metabolize alcohol differs. While the rate of metabolization is influenced by many factors, such as body weight, type of alcohol and food intake, draining the breasts does not expedite the elimination of alcohol from breast milk. For moms concerned about alcohol and breastfeeding, Milkscreen is an easy to use test to detect the presence of alcohol in breast milk. You simply express a few drops of milk on the test strip and if the test pad changes color at 2 minutes alcohol is present (at or above 13.1 mg/dL). No more guessing or unnecessary “pump and dump.” With Milkscreen mom has
answers and can breastfeed with confidence.
