Did you know that not every crib mattress is priced thesame? The reason I bring this up is because there are more and more cribmattress coming on the market and with all of them out there you need tounderstand sometimes the only difference in mattresses is the brand. Crib mattress prices are set based on many things, color, design, material, and most of all the brand. What most people don’t evenrealize is that you can find two mattresses that are identical and the onlything that is different is the price. The reason why this is is becausemanufacturers will sell the same crib mattress to different companies and thosecompanies will just put their name on it and figure out a price for it. Mysuggestion to you is to see which crib mattresses are made by the samemanufacturer and buy the cheaper version because when you look at them piece bypiece you will see that they are the same. Another thing you need to know about prices isthat they are lower in the winter. Most people think that crib mattress pricesare cheaper in the winter time simply because of all the holiday sales butactually that is not the reason for the lower price. The lower price is setbecause of the supply and demand on the crib mattresses. More people havebabies during the summer months than any other month and because of that themattress companies try to keep sales going by giving better discounts duringthe winter rather than the summer. It is important to know the things about mattress pricesbecause not understanding the way it all works will result in you spendingmoney that you really don’t need to. In my opinion it is better to know aboutall the different reasons for a price change rather than know all the featuresand benefits of certain mattresses.
