Learn this simple trick from BeauGen that can save you time and frustration
Sizing your flange can be difficult. Getting a comfortable fit, well that’s challenging, too. With BeauGen’s Breast Pump Cushions help is available! Our cushions help moms size flanges down by simply inserting the cushion into your flange. But, if that’s not enough, or you need a little bit more cushion while pumping, this helpful hack is perfect for you.
BeauGen cushions are soft, stretchy, and foldable. This is where we get this helpful hack, the fold method. Watch the video below or continue reading to learn this helpful sizing hack from BeauGen Founder and CEO Tu-Hien Le.
How to Achieve the Fold Method with Your BeauGen Breast Pump Cushions
Unpack your new pair of breast pump cushions. Pop these babies open so that they form the shape of a flange. Now here comes the not so tricky part: Take the part of the cushion that inserts into the tunnel, and fold it back on itself. It should be about half as long now.
Then, simply insert the cushion into your flange as you normally would before folding it. Place your thumb inside the cushion and smooth it along the inside of your flange and tunnel so that it snugly fits. Now you’re ready to use your breast pump with confidence and comfort.
Can I still use BeauGen Cushions if I change the size of my Flange?
Yes! Our cushions are designed to provide maximum comfort while maintaining a low profile. The cushions are designed to fit flange sizes 21mm to 27mm. They’re approximately 1mm thick and by themselves may reduce the size of your flange by 2mm. The fold method is designed for moms who need to reduce the flange size by 3-4mm.
