Giant Mattress Built For Families Who Want To Sleep Together (And Pets Can Join In, Too)

Wow, that’s a huge mattress!

If regular-sized mattresses just won’t cut it for you, then the “family size” version, which is twice the size of the king-size bed, might be the one that you have been looking for. The 12-foot-wide bed from Ace Collection is also perfect for parents who let their kids sleep with them but hate how cramped a regular-sized mattress can quickly get for everyone.

Measuring 144-inches wide by 80-inches long, this bed is perfect for large families. In fact, the mattress is so huge that your pets could even join in.

But before getting too attached to the idea, consider the size of your bedroom since the Ace Collection mattress requires a pretty roomy space.

Almost twice the size also means twice the amount. So if you have $2,750 to spare, then this just might be the mattress for you. However, shifting from a regular-sized bed to this massive “family size” one is not going to be easy.

Since its size is so irregular, you won’t be able to find the perfect bed sheets, flat sheets, metal frame, and box spring for it in your local store. But the good news is, these items come with the bed. The bad news? Your new total is going to be $4,054.

While more space could make it easier for the whole family to sleep comfortably, parents should always follow proper co-sleeping guidelines to ensure that everyone gets a safe night’s sleep, according to Michael H. Goodstein, MD, FAAP, a fellow of The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) and a member of the AAP Task Force on SIDS.

He said:

“We recommend room sharing. Room sharing — where the baby is close to the parent, but on a separate sleep surface — has been shown to reduce the risk of SIDS up to 50 percent and still allow for closeness, bonding, and successful breastfeeding.”
