The Bed That Brings the Family Together

Whether you co-sleep with your babies, or your little ones climb into your bed at night when they’re scared, are you tired of getting kicked out of your own bed? It feels as if kids at night turn into giants who take up the whole sleeping area or move around incessantly, keeping you awake. You may be thinking about no longer opening up your bed to your children, but with The Family Bed, you can continue the tradition.

The Solution to Family Sleeping and Quality Time

The Family Bed is a huge mattress that can fit your entire family comfortably on it. You have three sizes to choose from to ensure maximum space: 9 feet (double full), 10 feet (double queen), or 12 feet (double California King).

You can use your new bed for more than just sleeping, too. It’s also perfect for watching movies, reading books, video chatting with faraway loved ones, and hanging out, instead of squeezing onto the couch for these activities. You can even use it to play a game with everyone if your table isn’t big enough. It may be a bed, but its purpose is simply to bring the whole family together in comfort.

Benefits for Childless Couples

What if you don’t have children? This bed is still for you if you feel crammed in a traditional-size bed with your partner. It allows you to share a bed while enjoying plenty of distance from a snoring, active, or big and tall bedmate. There’s enough room for beloved pets, too.

Special Features

In addition to extra elbow room, the bed also comes with special features for a luxurious feel that will give you pleasant sleep. The American-made mattress contains the following:

  • Cooling silk and wool material
  • Deluxe quilting in stretch knit
  • Two inches of cooling gel
  • Two-inch memory foam, breathable convoluted foam, and dense support form

We also offer the sheets you need to fit whatever size mattress you buy.

A variety of frames lets you choose the degree of luxury you want to experience. Simple options are the standard foundation and low-profile foundation. If you prefer adjustable beds, choose between three adjustable bases that offer different levels of settings.

A Good Night for Everyone

The nursery rhyme “Ten in the Bed” ends with the little one finally having the whole bed alone and being able to fall sleep. With The Family Bed, all 10 of you can stay snuggled under the covers and get a good night’s rest. Order yours from Bedding Mart today and call us at 1-888-543-5152 to discuss financing options.

Should You Join the Family Bed Movement?

One of the battles in the “mommy wars” is where babies and children should sleep. Some parents believe the crib is the best place for safety, privacy, and independence reasons, whereas others propose that co-sleeping – or more particularly, bed sharing – is better due to bonding and convenience. Another term for the support of co-sleeping is the family bed movement.

Why the Movement?

The purpose of this movement is to encourage families to sleep together in the same bed. It generally only applies to babies and young children, though some families with children of all ages may still enjoy the practice. It’s not new to humankind. Our ancestors used to all sleep together for warmth and protection, as well as due to lack of space or money for individual rooms and beds.

The Family That Dozes Together Grows Together

Sharing a bed may sound unappealing to some, but it actually comes with many benefits. These include:

  • Reduced risk of SIDS in babies
  • Easier nighttime breastfeeding
  • Better rest and health for children
  • Peace of mind for parents
  • Increased family connection
  • Long-term emotional health for children, such as less anxiety and higher independence

Some pediatricians advise against bed sharing, but others support the practice if done safely. Only mothers should sleep with infants because they have a higher sensitivity to their babies’ movements and cries. Waterbeds and couches are not safe locations for sleeping with little ones. Excess pillows should be removed for safety, and the temperature should be comfortable for all, remembering that close bodies generate and transfer heat.

How To Make It Work

Currently, the most common ways families share sleeping quarters is through cramming into a traditional-sized bed, using bedside co-sleepers and cribs, or putting mattresses and sleeping bags on the floor next to the master bed.

Now there’s a better way to do it: using The Family Bed. This comfortable and luxurious mattress is up to double the size of a California King! The whole family can jump in with plenty of room to move around without bothering others while still enjoying the closeness of loved ones. You can even invite the pets, too! We also offer the option of adjustable beds through bases that can move the mattress to various positions or even give a massage.

If you want to be a part of “The Family Bed to all, and to all a good night,” then contact us today and find out how you can get this practical and premium mattress for your home without sacrificing your budget.
