This Ginormous Mattress Could Make Co-Sleeping So Much Easier
Parents everywhere, rejoice! There's finally a bed big enough for you and your L.O.s.
Though the scientific community continues to debate the pros and cons of the practice, plenty of families co-sleep. In fact, research from 2013 published in JAMA Pediatrics found that nearly half -- 45 percent -- of parents reported bed-sharing within two weeks of being tapped for the study.

But as popular as it may be, most parents who practice it will fully admit how aggravating it can be to sleep in a cramped position, perhaps with your kid's foot occasionally smacking you in the face. Even king-size beds don't feel big enough at times. And that's probably why a company called The Ace Collection came up with an absolutely huge new mattress that's perfect for co-sleeping families. It's fittingly called the Ace Family Size.
They also sell a regular Ace mattress that's bigger than the average king-size mattress (108" W x 80" L) and an "Ace Player" mattress that's 80" W x 108" L (which is longer versus wider). But the Ace Family Size is the giant of the whole line -- coming in at 144" W x 80" L. In other words, it appears to be pretty much fit for a whole family.

Of course, you will have to lay down some serious dough for the gigantic mattress. The Ace line ranges from $2,000 to $4,000. And for the Family Size option, you'll need to spend around $10K, as the bed’s box springs retail for $1,000 at either full or half height, with the frame going for $3,000, bed skirt at $500 and headboard for another $2,250 to $3,250 depending on design.
The mattress then sells for $3,000 to $5,000, plus another $500 for a foam topper.
But for plenty of parents, that may not be too steep a price to pay to co-sleep -- gasp -- comfortably!
