Check your breastmilk for alcohol with Milkscreen


If you’re breastfeeding but had a little tipple last night, there’s a product you can use to check the alcohol content of your breastmilk.

Whether it’s to wet the baby’s head, having a drink with your partner, or celebrating at a wedding, it’s natural for new mums to fancy a tipple. However, if you’re expressing, you can worry that the milk isn’t 100% alcohol-free. 

There’s a product on the market, the Milkscreen, that will allow you to check your expressed milk for any alcohol content, meaning you can be reassured that the milk is clean.
