Just need a little reassurance as i got my breast pump today and silly me thought i would give it a whirl.
Im 28 weeks and only used it for about 1 minute but had some colostrum come out.
Just wanting to make sure it isn't going to make me go into labour as i didn't think to check beforehand.

Any kind of breast stimulation can potentially kick off labour. The recommendation is to wait until at least 34 weeks before commencing any expressing. If you start getting any twinges/Braxton hicks, then stop immediately.

I had to express before birth due to Gestational Diabetes but was told by my OB not to do so before 36 weeks.
