Parents are always concerned about children moving out of their cribs. It is OK to keep your child in his crib longer than is typical, as long as he is safe to sleep in it.
If your child understands that she is connected to the feeding pump and isn’t trying to climb out of the crib, the transition to a toddler or regular bed should go pretty smoothly. Young children can be very proud to move to a “big kid” bed and can be taught to wait for someone to help them disconnect from the pump before getting out of bed.
If your child is climbing out of the crib, she may still not get up and pull the feeding pump along when she is in a toddler or regular bed. If your child does like to get up on her own, there are bed tents. However, more often than not, we hear from parents that they were concerned about the transition, but it didn’t end up being a problem once they moved their child.
