How It Works

Why Do I Need BeauGen Breast Pump Cushions?

It’s simple! Added comfort and better fit while breast pumping. Our soft, stretchy plastic Breast Pump Cushions reduce the friction between your breast and the pump's hard flange.

Unboxing Your BeauGen Cushions!

You’ve received your BeauGen cushions, now what? Our cushions ship flat, and easily pop open to take the shape needed to fit your breast pump flange.

How Do I Insert BeauGen Cushions Into My Breast Pump Flange?

Open your cushions to a cone-like shape. Use your thumb to gently insert your cushion into the flange. Smooth out any creases with your pinky.

How Do I Care For My BeauGen Cushions?

To get more out of every pair of cushions, proper care is important. Handwash with warm water and gentle soap, and air dry. Do not expose cushions to high heat because it could melt and degrade the soft and stretchy material of the cushions, potentially causing it to stretch-out and tear sooner.

Why Should I Train My BeauGen Cushions, and How Do I Do It?

Just like a new pair of shoes, you might prefer for your brand new cushions to be broken in a bit. Training your cushions help to further soften and relax the cushion's material, allowing it to even better conform to you and your flange.

Simply stretch the cushion over the back of the flange of your pump, or other similarly-sized cylindrical object, and allow them to sit for about 45-60 minutes. 

What Is the Fold Method?

The fold method is the answer to many of the flange-fit concerns that pumping mamas raise with us. First of all, it works well for moms using flanges with shorter tunnels. It is also helpful for moms who need a little bit more of the nipple visible to get the perfect alignment. Lastly, for moms with shorter nipples, the fold method prevents breast milk from working its way underneath the cushion.

With the fold method, your sensitive skin is still protected by the cushion. There is no compromise on comfort!
