In the market for a crib mattress? Here are some things you must know before you set out and buy one….
First, crib mattresses usually come in two types — foam mattress and innerspring mattress. Of the two, the foam mattress are more affordable and lighter.
FOAM MATTRESSES. If you’re picking out foam mattresses, take note that higher density foam are more comfortable. Density, unfortunately, isn’t listed in the packaging or the label. You can usually only see the thickness (in inches) but that doesn’t indicate density. However, don’t pick out a mattress that is far to heavy, because it would be a hassle when you lift it as you change the crib sheets.
