I'm a mom to be and was wondering if the mattresses come with a box spring? I've been looking at them but can't tell.

  • I guess you are talking about crib mattresses. Most of them are a combined mattress, the springs are covered with padding and tied down. I have only seen the ultra high price crib mattresses that have a separate box spring and mattress, like an adult bed. A good quality crib mattress should be about $150 to $200. This mattress can also be used in a toddler bed until your child is ready for a twin bed. Good luck and shop around.
