I'm in the respect the child's wishes camp. My son is now 12 but has taken pump breaks. At 5 we talked and decided together to go on the pump. He was against it for a while but once he was ready, we went with it. He has taken multiple breaks from his pump and we go unteathered as that works best for him. I would have a discussion about what the change would mean. I know for Hunter that sometimes he just doesn't want the 24/7 in his face reminder.
