IntelliBED® Baby crib mattress is designed to be the most baby-friendly, pressure-relieving, and natural sleep surface ever. By using hospital tested Intelli-Gel® for both cushioning and support we were able to eliminate all the foam and any other potentially allergenic materials, making this the most natural, nontoxic, hypoallergenic mattress for baby’s healthy sleep. And by avoiding the poly-chemical foam, latex or wool found in other baby mattresses we were able to avoid the too-firm surfaces that can affect your baby when sleeping. The excellent pressure relieving qualities of Intelli-Gel helps protect baby from cradle cap and plagiocephaly, the flat head condition from a too-firm mattress.
This 29″x54″3″ crib mattress weighs 29 pounds and meets all federal regulations for size and fire blocking. It is purposely designed to be thinner than most baby mattresses (3 inches vs. 6 inches) to offer less chance of baby falling over the side of the crib as they grow and begin to stand up.
Just Gel Baby!
The IntelliBED baby crib mattress uses hospital tested Intelli-Gel for both cushioning and support to make sure that it’s non-toxic, anti-microbial, and hypo-allergenic. IntelliGel is so safe that it’s used to make baby bottle nipples, and it offers exceptional pressure relief.
WARNING: Many Other Crib Mattresses Emit High Rates of Potentially Harmful Chemicals
In a first-of-its-kind study, a team of environmental engineers at The University of Texas found that infants are exposed to high levels of chemical emissions from crib mattresses while they sleep. The team analyzed the polyurethane foam and polyester foam padding from 20 new and old crib mattresses, and they found significant amounts of volatile organic compounds (VOCs), potentially harmful chemicals also found in household items such as cleaners and scented sprays.
More than 30 VOCs in the mattresses were identified, including phenol, neodecanoic acid and linalool. The most abundant chemicals identified in the crib mattress foam, such as limonene (a chemical that gives products a lemon scent), are routinely found in many cleaning and consumer products.
Infants are more sensitive to these chemicals because they inhale much more air per body weight than adults and sleep a longer time. They experience about 10 times as much inhalation exposure as adults when exposed to the same level of VOCs.
