So most of my friends reach for that celebratory glass of champers once their babes have been born and after 9 months of abstinence it is only natural to fancy a glass or two in those early weeks. If you are breastfeeding and are concerned about the effects then have a gander at this. My American galpal trotted round with these Milkscreen strips in my first week home with Little B, and I have to admit it did make me giggle. The Milkscreen kit is essentially a home test for alcohol in breast milk. You simply dip the strips in your bottles of expressed milk and it will detect the presence of any alcohol. Good for peace of mind, it also might mean you carry on breastfeeding for longer. An amusing addition to any Baby Shower pressie.
