Do cribs come with thier own mattresses?

I'm buying a crib, but the crib I got is online, not knowing its size I can't buy the mattress. Some1 told me that they come w/ thier own mattresses, but are those safe for the baby as well?

  • Most do not come with a matress, but all crib mattress are the same size its a toddler bed mattres.
    dont go cheep thou- this is one of the few things you need to be picky about.
    cheep matreses can hurt the babys body and cause bad sleeping habbits- also get one thats hypo allegetic.

  • all of the cribs i have ever gotten didnt come with one- i had to buy one seperately but for the most part (unless u are buying a travel crib or a round crib or something) all the mattresses are one size fits all as far as i know- and ive gone through 3 (about to go on my 4th) cribs and mattresses

  • I have never ever heard of one or been told they come with mattresses. One size mattress fits all..or you would see a section at a baby store that has different sizes or sheets in different no ONE size fits all

  • I've never heard of a crib coming with a mattress. A standard crib mattress should fit unless its a specialty crib, round or oval or something. Otherwise, just go get a crib mattress... it will fit.

  • I now see what you are talking about. (i think) the MINI crib(i saw them at walmart) come with a 2 inch matress already,BUT you can buy your own MINI mattress @ walmart for like 25 bucks. from what i read its very very hard :/
