Elizabeth Boyce needed a creative bedtime solution for her five children and disabled husband. She was tired of everyone not getting enough sleep and used to co-sleeping from family trips. Boyce created a “Family Bed” from parts available at IKEA. While not everyone online approved, the family is happy with the arrangement and has compiled a FAQ for the curious.
“We had the loft beds already, but they weren’t being used since the kids were sleeping on our floor,” Boyce told Aplus. “So we tried fitting them all in the same room and making it look like one bed. Tom is disabled, and my work schedule can be erratic in and out of the hospital, and our kids sleep better when they are all in the same space.”
