Milkscreen

Test for the presence
of alcohol in breast
milk in just 2 minutes.

Available in packs of 8 and 20.

UpSpring Milkscreen is an easy, non-invasive, 2-minute test that detects alcohol in breast milk.

Simply saturate the test pad with a few drops of breast milk, then check for any color change 2 minutes later for your results. No colour change means no alcohol present.*

Why testing with Milkscreen is so important.*

When you drink, some alcohol goes into your bloodstream – which then passes into your breast milk. On average it takes up to 2 hours for one standard drink to leave your bloodstream.

No two women metabolize alcohol at the same rate.

It depends on body weight, the type and amount of alcohol you drink, and how much and when you’ve last eaten. Testing your breast milk takes guesswork out of the equation.

*Consult a healthcare practitioner if consuming alcohol post-pregnancy. Health Canada advises breastfeeding women to limit their alcohol intake, particularly with newborns. There is no known safe level of alcohol consumption while breastfeeding. Exposure to alcohol above one drink per day through breast milk may be detrimental to infant motor development and may decrease breast milk supply.

This product detects the presence of alcohol in breastmilk at a level of 13.1 mg/dL or greater.

How to use Milkscreen test strips

It’s easy as 1-2-3 and only takes 2 minutes to get your results.

What’s a standard drink?

If you’re breastfeeding, and thinking about drinking alcohol on a special occasion, limit yourself to 1 or 2 standard drinks per occasion*.

*Health Canada recommends avoiding alcohol if you’re breastfeeding, especially when your baby is under 3 months old.
