Nursing + Alcohol

As a nursing mom, I’d like to have a glass of wine now and again. However, I’m always concerned that the baby is getting some of the alcohol in the breastmilk. The founders of a product called Milkscreen by Upspring claim to have found a test for this. They offer some amazing products like Night Knight, designed to detect when there is no motion for 23 seconds while the baby is sleeping, and Walking Wings, to help the baby learn to walk. Why anyone would want their kid to walk earlier than later is beyond me, but this product helps one do that. The founders are mothers, and they are projecting sales in 2008 of over $5 million. Not bad, considering the company was started in 2005.
