Ameda Mya Joy PLUS Breast Pump Review

Snuggle Bugz | | Comments 0

Jump to Section

If you’re planning to breastfeed when your little one arrives, a breast pump is one of the smartest investments you can make. Whether you want to build up a freezer stash of milk or incorporate bottles into daily feeding, a good pump can make all the difference in your breastfeeding experience.  

One of the most functional and easy-to-use pumps on the market is the Ameda Mya Joy PLUS Pump–the newest member of the Ameda family of pumping solutions. Mya Joy PLUS is small and quiet, offers two adjustable suction modes, and integrates seamlessly with the Ameda HygieniKit you may receive in the hospital. It’s the perfect balance of portability and performance, with lots of practical features.

Hospital-Strength Performance  

The Mya Joy PLUS is a truly remarkable breast pump. Small and lightweight with an integrated rechargeable battery for up to three hours of operation, the Mya Joy PLUS also offers whisper quiet operation (less than 45dB), so you can discreetly pump anywhere. With USB charging capabilities (and the ability to operate after only 15 minutes of charge time), this breast pump is easy to pop into your diaper bag 

What truly sets the Mya Joy PLUS apart from the competition is Ameda’s commitment to offering the same quality (and suction) you’d find in a hospital setting in the comfort of your home. The Mya Joy PLUS offers two suction modes: stimulation mode (with six adjustable levels) and expression mode (with 12 levels!). At the highest setting, this pump goes up to 250 mmHg suction strength.  

Because not all bodies (or breasts) are the same, Ameda has made the Mya Joy PLUS compatible with their CustomFit Flange System and offers a wide range of flange sizes. To complement this incredible flexibility, the large, backlit digital LCD display with timer and push button controls means you’ll be able to easily customize your pumping experience — even in the middle of the night.

Comfort & Safety 

The Mya Joy PLUS Pump is designed with your comfort and safety needs in mind. The PLUS is easily adaptable to single or double pumping, and features a two-minute auto switch to Expression Mode, so you can ensure you’re expressing milk quickly and efficiently. In addition to coming in a range of sizes, the CustomFit Flanges are designed with your comfort in mind and are entirely BPA and DEHP free.  

One of the key concerns for new parents is ensuring the milk your newborn needs is safe to eat. With this in mind, Ameda has developed the HygieniKit Milk Collection System. The HygieniKit true closed system not only helps protect breast milk from backing up into the tubing but also prevents the system from potential contaminants like bacteria, viruses, and mold growth, and the removable parts are easy to keep clean.  

On top of all these benefits, Ameda backs up the Mya Joy PLUS with a two-year limited warranty through the Ameda ParentCare Support program.
