Great idea shame about the rip off price,
This review is from: NCT Bednest Bedside Crib (Baby Product)
Look at the product and the price, compare with full size solid wood cots or any other product for that matter. Fact here is this product probably costs around 50-60 pounds to produce.
I think it's a good idea but I refuse to be ripped off by overpriced products,

Have you actually USED one?

No, I have seen them in the flesh and they do a good job. However I look at what materials are used and how long it would take to make and cannot see how the price can be justified.

Aha - a manufacturing expert! This person has no idea. And when buying anything what do they think things cost to make? A £25,000 car has about £7,000 cost in the factory. How do they think a company survives? Does this person work for free? When you buy a £69 Moses basket it costs about £6 to make in China.

Yep you said it, I actually worked in manufacturing for 20 years. By "this person" must be referring to yourself.
However you dont have to be an expert, compare your product against others, its simple. Your mark up is too high and I expect this will be reflected by your sales volume.
Wake up and smell the coffee mate!

Just seen the review of the Kindle - clearly this reviewer has no idea about what sells and what people want. I hear Bednest is the market leader in bedside cribs. The reviewer has no idea. Clearly has an axe to grind as by their own admission has not even used one. Reviewer has no real right to write a review about something they know nothing about. But the Internet is a beast that can be used for good or bad.

Yes true regarding the internet and looking at the rest of the reviews for your product... We'll let your sales prove your point, glad to be proved wrong. Come on though seriously 300+ pounds....? If I'm the only one to think this is vastly overpriced then I apologise. I understand that everyone needs to make profit and that some high end brands can get more due to reputation.
And yes I as wrong about the kindle Amazon corrected me. How many kindles can you buy for one of your wooden cots?
Why not respond to my post justifying the price by listing why you think its worth 325 pounds. I can't argue if you provide sound logic!

The value in a product cannot be judged by the sum of its parts. There is ingenuity, invention and innovation. The experience provided by design transcends the components. The Bednest has all this. No other bedside crib can close the dangerous gap between the mattresses with a bridge. No other crib can be tilted to help relieve the symptoms of reflux. No other crib has 70 height adjustments so it is exactly in line with the height of the main mattress. No other crib has a second opening side panel that allows easy access to little one when its attached to the bed. No lifting over a high side which exists in every other bedside crib. And Bednest can be built in one minute - without the need for any tools. And then folded up for travel in a minute so little one has a familiar sleep environment wherever you go. And no other crib is built to such a high quality that it can be rented and used for many babies. So you have all the benefits of a £300 product for just £99 - and for that you get a new mattress and sides. And according to their website every 14 x rentals saves the felling of a whole tree and the electricity saved is equal to boiling a kettle 1400 times - plus it saves over 15,000 miles travel of a truck from the factory. 14 x journeys saved. But above all you can't beat the experience of being able to wake up and see your little one happy and safe - right next to you but in their own sleep space. I think all that makes it an amazing product. It's not a product. It's an experience. A wonderful one. I hope that helps explain what it's all about.

Ok then why worry about my post? People will flock to buy or rent your product and I wish you luck. It's only my opinion which will be proven wrong by your success.
