Study says delaying transition from crib to bed could lead to better sleep. Gray Hall reports during Action News at 9 a.m. on December 2, 2018.

It may be one of the biggest milestones for parents and their toddlers -- the transition from crib to a bed.

However, a new study finds that delaying that could lead to better sleep for both.

Researchers at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia looked at data from nearly 2,000 caregivers with toddlers aged 18-36 months.

They found that those who continued to sleep in a crib until three-years-old slept better.

Not surprisingly, so did the parents.
