The BeauGen 2021 Holiday Gift Guide for Moms is Live
Welcome to this year’s annual gift guide! Each year we interview our BeauGen team members, Facebook Group members, and experts to find the best gift ideas for breastfeeding/chest-feeding. This includes nursing, pumping, supplementing, all of the ways we feed our babies. Because the very best gift we can give to our families is a healthy start.
Throughout this past year we’ve had incredible opportunities to connect with breastfeeding and chestfeeding companies and experts in our Express Yourself Podcast, guest blog posts, MomDay Monday Facebook Lives, and more. We’ve met incredible moms creating communities, seen products that totally change the pumping experience, and services that save nursing journeys. We’ve brought them all together here in this guide. So be sure to spend some time with this post and share it with the friends and family members who are walking this journey now or will be in the near future. With this guide, you could be gifting a smooth and safe start to someone you know.
