A must buy for pumping mamas. Really makes the experience more comfortable, especially if you are experiencing soreness.
Hi Allie - We're so happy to hear that you have found pumping more comfortable with BeauGen cushions, thank you for sharing your positive experience! Happy Pumping!
These were a game changer for my wearable pump. Even though I've tried new flanges and size inserts, the output when I use the wearable is always noticeably less than my regular pump. Always disappointing: the regular is so bulky and inconvenient, and I have this expensive extra pump that wasn't covered by my insurance and only works like 75% of the way! (Not to mention the resulting clogs...) I've heard flange size and alignment needs to be more precise with the wearable, so I got these to try and get just a little better fit... Used for the first time today, and I can already tell this is going to completely change the game for the wearable pump; what a difference!
(Ps. I noticed other reviews mentioned not fitting with 21mm flanges; that's what I use, and I really didn't have trouble)
Hi Julianne - Thank you for sharing your positive experience, we are so happy to hear how much you love BeauGen cushions with your wearable pump! And yes, BeauGen cushions fit inside flange sizes 21-28mm. Thank you, and happy pumping!
I got 2 pairs and use one with my Spectra and one with my Elvie. Such a difference. Even after getting smaller flanges for both I still had some pain, with these it was all smooth sailing!
Hi Jaime - We are so happy to hear that you've had a positive experience with BeauGen cushions! Thank you for sharing, and happy pumping!
These were comfortable to the touch but with my elastic nipples they didn’t do much to keep them from expanding in to the flange. My nipples still touched the end. I also got these to help heal cracks and unfortunately they didn’t.
Hi Lindsey, thank you for your review. Many moms have shared that the tacky cushions helped to hold back elastic breast tissue, I wonder if you have tried 'training' the cushions before your first use, so that they can move move with your skin? Regarding cracks, BeauGen cushions were not designed to heal cracked nipples, though they do help in preventing new cracks by reducing the friction of your skin against the hard plastic flange!
I’m unsure if I have elastic nipples or not, but a lot of my areola was going in the flange with my nipple and I was already at a 24 so I bought these and it made it more of a 21. Helped with allowing just my nipple in the shaft of the flange while also being a cushion. Like them a lot!
3 weeks pp and I have been having such a hard time getting more than an ounce of milk from my left breast with my Elvie stride. I have elastic nipples and I’ve tried everything I could think of to help and nothing was working. My nipples were sore and cracked from rubbing along the flange even though it was sized correctly. This has changed my pumping journey for sure !!!! I was able to pump over 4oz on my left side alone. If I keep this up I’ll finally have enough milk so I can continue to freeze ♥️
I was having a problem with my nipple getting rubbed by the flange and becoming raw and sore. I bought the cushions and within 2 weeks my nipples were healed and not sore anymore. I loved them so much I bought two more pairs so I can replace the first pair since I used it daily during every pump. Wouldn’t still be pumping had I not purchased these game changing cushions.
I personally have elastic nipples, that are less than 20mm, without these cushions I wouldn’t have been able to continue my pumping journey. I recently received a new pump and without the cushions I would have quit. I have been exclusively pumping for 18 months, and can continue my journey for more months to come ☺️ The container looks bigger than pictured but I love having my cushions in their own spot.
It makes us so happy to hear we've been an integral part of your pumping journey. Thank you for being a BeauGen mama!
I am absolutely in love with these inserts. I used to struggle so much as an overproducer and elastic nipples. Nothing was helping me until I tried this product. If I could recommend this product to every new pumping momma I would!!! The company has amazing customer service as well. So much love for BeauGen !!
We love you mama! It is an honor to support your pumping journey. We pride ourselves in the customer service we provide. Thank you so much for sharing your feedback with us!
I had a rough breastfeeding journey which led me to start exclusively pumping. Getting the cushions was a big part of being able to continue to exclusively pump. These cushions made my pumping experience so much more comfortable, and I was able to pump longer than expected 6month goal. You really can’t go wrong with these, and they are super easy to clean. From one pumping mama to another, get yourself these cushions and continue to support your journey. ❤️
We're so excited that the cushions have helped your pumping journey and even allow you to pump longer than planned. It is a pleasure to be a part of your pumping journey! Thank you for being a BeauGen mama!
Very good for elastic nipples. However, I suggest that you come up with a cushion which are compatible with elvie or other handsfree pumps. Many moms are using the latest handsfree pumps, it would be helpful to buy the cushions that are compatible with these pumps. I suggest making the cushion stems shorter. That way consumers won't have to cut or fold them to fit in their pump. Cutting is not recommended and folding needs re-calculation of flange size. If you sell both the regular length cushions and modified cushions, it would be very helpful to us moms who already have many things to worry about. Please consider this. I have elvie and I would love to use it without modifying the product. Because these really work!
This is great advice, thank you for sharing your experience and your feedback! We're happy to know the cushions are working well for your elastic nipples. Creating different sizes and shorter cushions is on our radar but, with the cost of everything increasing, we don't currently have a timeline just yet. But, stay tuned! :)
I cannot express how impactful these have been. I am able to pump longer and at a higher strength without pain which has helped increase my supply. Grateful to have found these.
This has made our day! We're honored to be a part of your pumping journey. Thank you mama for your amazing review.
I pumped an extra half ounce . Comfortable . Easy to use . Pricey but your nips are worth it !
I’ve used them with my Elvie stride and my imani
This is awesome! So happy to hear the cushions have increase your milk output and provided the comfort your pumping journey so much deserves. If you join our VIP subscription, you can save on your cushion purchases :)
I never knew elastic nipples were a thing until I had my little girl. I was desperate for help for my poor nipples. The pain was unbearable when pumping, and it almost made me give up pumping all together. However, Beaugen has been a God send! I can now exclusively pump for my little one and have zero pain at all! My nipples and my sanity thank you for these amazing breast shields/ cushions!
Hali, we're glad you considered trying BeauGen breast pump cushions and we are so thrilled that they worked for you! You got this mama!
I have elastic nipples and almost exclusively pump (nurse like once a week) so these get a lottt of use. I notice a huge difference when I don’t use them. If you’re debating it, get them! Worth the small investment. Customer service is super helpful, too!
You're doing such an amazing job mama! Thank you so much for taking the time to share this feedback and for including us in your pumping journey!
Love these so much, they have really increased my pumping efficiency because now I can up the vacuum level!
Yay! This makes us so so happy! Thank you for allowing us to be a part of your pumping routine. Happy pumping mama!
These cushions are great for my elastic nipples and increased my supply almost instantly. They made pumping way more comfortable, but they are NOT durable. After only 12 days of normal use (5-6 sessions at 20-30 min), both my cushions split down the flange. At $28 each set, these are too expensive for me to keep replacing every 12 days. I’m disappointed.
Hi Alexandra! We're so happy to hear the cushions have helped with your elastic tissue and increased your milk supply! I'm sorry the cushions are tearing prematurely, we'd love to chat with you to offer suggestions on how to make the cushions last longer than just 12 days. Because the cushions are made of plastic and not silicone, they can be prone to tearing but, training them over the back of the flanges just once, gets them to relax and be more pliable. Contact our Mommy Care Team so we may give you more individualized support.
I paired my BeauGens with size 21 Lacteck Baby Motion flanges. Now my sizing finally feels correct (elastic nipples). I'm not sure how small one could go and still be compatible but judging by the look of the BeauGen cushion, I think one could at least go down to 19mm LacTeck flanges. After a couple days to adapt, my output is higher. I am both direct feeding and expressing to feed my preemie fortified bottles. I am usually a "just enougher". The past two days I was able to pump 2 extra ounces for my freezer stash. I did bump up my Spectra suction one notch on both massage and expression settings.
Hi Tina! Thank you for sharing your feedback with us! 2 extra ounces is amazing, great job mama! Thank you for allowing us to be a part of your pumping journey :)
I was in between a 27mm and 24mm flange. I used the beaugen inserts for the 27mm which gave me about 25mm size and it fit perfectly. I always use coconut oil on the flanges and this was no different. The soft material made it less painful as it reduced the constant rubbing. My only issue is it takes a couple tries to get the insert in the middle of the flange but even then, it's not entirely in the middle once the nipple attached to it. If there was an easier way to get the insert positioned easier and more accurate, I would give this product 5 stars.
So glad the cushions helped you obtain the comfort and fit you needed. One suggestion we have that may help you better align the cushions and nipples is to rub some lubricant onto the cushions prior to inserting them into the flanges. This will help in two ways; it will make the cushions more clear for better nipple alignment and it will also get the cushions to be less sticky so that you're able to insert them properly within the flanges. I hope this trick helps mama!
Met with the team and bought some for my wife who has been experiencing pain. She loves the pads and uses them every time she pumps!
Hi Brantley! Thank you for your feedback and for the support you give to your wife. We're super happy to be a part of her pumping journey!
I’ve been exclusively pumping for 3.5 months now with a goal of “as long as my baby needs breast milk.” I’ve had mastitis twice already & non stop milk blisters & cracks. I finally got some relief with the beau Gen cushions did once I have zero pain when pumping! Thank you heaugrn you’ve saved my pumping and breastfeeding journey for my daughter’s sake!
Oh Ashley! This means so much! Thank you for sharing this success story with us, you have no idea how this impacts us, we've got all the feels! Happy pumping mama!
BeauGen Breast Pump Cushions - 2 Pairs
These made pumping with elastic nipples so much more comfortable. There’s a bit of a learning curve for putting them in the flange, but wetting your thumb and the flange slightly really helps for placement. Thank you!!
