Alcohol Breast Milk Tests


PREGMATE Alcohol Breast Milk Tests detect the presence of alcohol at a level of 20 mg/dL or greater in breast milk. The test consists of plastic strip with a reactive test pad attached to the tip. The test pad will change color on contact with breast milk that contains alcohol.

1. Saturate test pad with breast milk:

  • Express milk directly onto test pad OR dip test pad in small portion of milk from a pumped sample collected in a clean, dry container.
  • Remove test strip after 3 seconds.
  • Discard milk.

2. Tap excess breast milk off test pad.
3. Wait exactly 2 minutes.
4. Read test results by comparing test pad to the Color Card.

Reading the results:

Positive:The test will produce a color change in the presence of alcohol in breast milk. The results will show the concentration of alcohol in milk in a scale from 0.02% to 0.30%. This is represented by the intensity of the blue color which ranges from light blue (0.02%) to dark blue (0.30%). Please, use the provided scale for more detailed reference. The test may produce colors that appear to be between adjacent color examples.

Negative:When the test shows no color change this should be interpreted as a negative result indicating that alcohol has not been detected.

Great product

Love this product. Came in handy when I had a few drinks. Made me feel at ease when I decided to have a drink to know that I can feed my baby or not with that milk. Definitely make sure you wait a few minutes after you use the strip to make sure it doesn’t change colors.

Gives you peace of mind

Good product does what it says. Life is not over for parents that are breast feeding. You still want to be protective of your child but you also want to have a few drinks. This allows you to be a responsible parent and still have a night out occasionally.
