When can I put a female betta in with babies?

Hello to all! I am in need of yalls help yet again. Here are the details.

In one tank, I have my little Cami. She's a female betta that is about 1.25 inches not including her tail. She is currently staying in a 2 gallon. Because of an outlet issue, I need to transfer her over to my 25 gallon as soon as I can. Problem is, my 25 is currently home to one to two dozen baby battas (I got ill for a while and they weren't fed 2-3x a day for a while, so I lost some :( ) and kuhli loaches. They range from half and inch down to a third (again, not counting the tail). The males will be given away while females will be part of the sorority. I don't think she would make a snake out of them, but you never know. So, would it be safe for me to put her in with the babies? If not, how long should I wait?

I think if you have plenty hiding places, the little ones will be quick enough to get away from your bigger female. Plus since she's being added last, she may not be so prone to go after them of course this depends on her temperment.
