“I’ve found that many of our clients actually continue breastfeeding much longer than they would have otherwise due to their ability to test their breast milk after enjoying an occasional glass of wine. Milkscreen has been a valuable resource to offer our clients this peace of mind as we encourage them to breastfeed their babies as long as possible.” – Gabriela B.Gerhart Founder of The Motherhood Center and Lactation Consultant
“Milkscreen is a useful tool for breastfeeding mothers that want to drink responsibly for themselves and their babies. Many mothers feel overwhelmed and isolated when they think that they have to give up their adult lives in order to breastfeed. Milkscreen takes the guesswork out of an important decision that many mothers face at one time or another during their breastfeeding experience”. – Lauren Reyes, IBCLC and breastfeeding mother of three.
“Milkscreen is an awesome product. My husband was home on R&R from Afghanistan and he felt I deserved a night out with him since I wasn’t pregnancy anymore. Milkscreen made me feel like I was still a good mom but let me have some alone time with my hubby as well! I plan to bring a pack with me when I visit my in laws and can finally have a glass of wine!” Chelsea H.
“It’s been a very long year since I had my last drink, and while I am not a regular drinker, just knowing I couldn’t have one made my craving for a glass of wine that much more intense. It’s great to know I don’t always need to pump and dump like I thought I did… I hate seeing precious breast milk go down the drain, now I know it’s not necessary. ” – Lisa L.
“I’m not usually one to rate or write reviews as I’m quite busy juggling my own business and being a new mother, but Milkscreen has really helped me so much as a new mother emotionally and mentally, I’d love to see this product in all stores.” – Kathy C.
“I spent almost 10 long months pregnant (my baby was 3 weeks past his due date) and really missed my glass of wine or beer at night. I know that breastfeeding is the best thing I can do for my baby. Milkscreen makes it so easy to check if your milk contains alcohol.” – Liah H.
“Last month a friend of mine turned me on to Milkscreen.We were having a “Mother’s” Party celebrating being mothers and our infants are at least one month apart from each other. Anyhow, I was a bit skeptical, more so paranoid. lol. I thought this was another scheme. So I had a margarita, and it was refreshing. I felt a little “relaxed” since I haven’t drank since I’ve been pregnant. I used the Milkscreen test strip 30 minutes after drinking my margarita, and the results were positive. I know it would be obvious, but my friend tested her milk and she was negative.. I do believe everyone’s metabolism is different. I highly recommend this product for every breast feeding woman.
“Milkscreen has been fabulous for me. Of course I know that the alcohol will filter out of my body if I wait long enough. But when I’m not positive if I’ve let enough time pass, I can be sure there is no alcohol in my milk by using one of the test strips. I recommend this product to all breastfeeding moms who enjoy the occasional night out.” – Giselle R.
“I think Milkscreen is extremely useful! I know that one glass of wine is considered safe when breastfeeding your baby, but I wasn’t so sure about a margarita. After enjoying my first margarita in a year, I used Milkscreen and saw that there was alcohol in my breast milk, so we gave our baby a bottle of previously pumped breast milk. I waited an hour and tested again, this time to find out that my milk was free of alcohol. I was able to pump at this time and keep my milk for a future feeding. I would definitely recommend this product for those times that you want to enjoy an alcoholic beverage or two.” – Michelle K.
“I think Milkscreen is great for several reasons. Yes, we know that it is ok to drink in “moderation” while breastfeeding. However, moderation means something different to everyone. Many moms would just like the peace of mind of knowing that their milk is clear of alcohol. I think Milkscreen allows moms to feel like they can relax a little. First time moms are so nervous and want to do what is best for their baby – usually sacrificing their own interests for this cause. That is great, but everyone needs to relax sometimes and for me, having a drink on date night allows me to unwind and recoup for the next week – and now I can do it GUILT FREE! I highly recommend Milkscreen and really appreciate the women who came up with it.” – Kelly D.
“Milkscreen represents a shift in our cultural perception of what a mother is and should be. With tools like Milkscreen women are empowered to make informed decisions about how to care for their babies while not having to sacrifice an experience that many adults find enjoyable. Gone are the days of breastfeeding mothers having to choose between an “adult” life and that of a “nursing mother”. The fabulous thing about our generation of mothers is that we choose to be present and connected with our children while maintaining gratifying adult relationships and experiences.” – Katherine J.
“I love having the peace of mind to have a glass or 2 of wine. I hate throwing out milk! It really does seem like liquid gold. I have stockpiled the milk so I can have some wine or a margarita every now and then. Great product!” – Jennifer D.
