I got this pump after having my fourth child. Previously I used the Medela Pump in Style, which I am told is no longer in production due to "hygiene issues" although I never had any problems with it myself. The Ameda Mya Joy pump is SO much slower and weaker than my previous Medela pump - to the extent that it takes 3 times as long to get the same amount of milk. I am disappointed that I wasted my insurance benefit on this product and cannot imagine taking this pump to work where I only have a 15 minute break to pump. This product will go straight into the closet and never be used.
I wouldn't not recommend this pump to anyone. Its suction is terrible. I ended up having to use my Manual pump. Because I knew there was milk in my breast but the Ameda pump was not effective at getting it out.

My overall experience with Ameda was good. It was effective and made pumping the most stress free and less worrisome. I liked how easy the product is to use, clean and store. It was also easy to follow the directions of use. I like the design as well and how it felt using. It didn't hurt my hands as much. It could've been a little quicker to use but it worked well enough.
Ameda was ok. I had a hard time extracting milk. It made my breasts tender. I could only do one breast at a time which a little inconvenient. On the positive side it is very easy to set up and figure out how to use. Also, the fast pumping action worked well for me. I liked the multiple storage options that were available with the breast pump as well. Moreover, it also had multiple settings to determine the level of pumping. Although, I would still like to see more options available for storage purposes and the ability to pump both breasts at once to save time.
It's a good tool to have when you need to express and does somewhat of a good job. But it does not pump or express the way it should be done and it is painful and does not mimic natural sucking. Also, not as efficient as the real thing...
I liked that it was easy to use. It had all the things that I needed and the plastic wasn't too uncomfortable either. It wasn't too hard on my breasts and some had made them feel sore before. The price wasn't too bad at all either. The breast pump was pretty efficient and worked very well. But considering there are a lot of smaller breasted woman that breastfeed as well, maybe that they would make smaller cups for us woman with smaller breasts. That would be so awesome. Overall I would use this breast pump again. My other advice would be to get one right away so you have it ready.
I liked the Ameda breast pump because it was easy to use. I also had a hands free adapter which made it even easier to use while caring for my baby. However, it was loud and not very compact and easy for travel. I would like to find a pump that is a little bit quieter for pumping in public and one that comes in a travel bag for when I go out. Overall I really enjoyed having the Ameda double electric breast pump and it did a wonderful job pumping. I would recommend this to any of my friends.
It was hospital grade and worked amazing. It was a double breast pump which helps keep your milk supply up. Suction was gentle yet firm but made it comfortable to use. Efficiency was great. Had a great portable carrying case for ease of use to carry back and forth from work to home. But if there was a way to make it quieter as it can be kind of embarrassing for a breast feeding mother who is in the workforce and has to pump in an office with male co workers. Other than that, would use this brand again.
The overall concept is super helpful and affordable, and I would recommended to any other breastfeeding mother. I love that this pump is from a respectable brand and use most often by hospitals. Also my insurance covered the cost of it. The overall of this breast pump is appealing and resourceful. Love telling others mom about this pump and all the wonders it has to offer. It is a helpful way to pump and store for your hungry little one. Love the overall idea of feeding my baby my own milk, so many health benefits and it's super cheap too, just need dedication and you will pull on through.
I like the design of the Ameda. I also like how lightweight it is and easy to use. I recommend to any new mom that plans of breastfeeding their baby. I think this is a great brand and very well made. I am very happy with this and it is very easy to store and best of all very easy to clean. I also found that this breast pump brand is very comfortable and I enjoy using it with my newborn.
