Crib support board emits large amounts of nauseous gas. Believed to be formaldehyde 'off gassing' when the humidity in our home became very high due to rainy weather, we noticed a smell from our bedroom where we (mother and father) and 6mo old child sleep. We realized the smell was causing nausea and near vomiting in mother who sleeps 2 feet from crib. After much investigating we figured out the smell was coming from the mattress support board. After removing board from home, smell immediately and drastically reduced and after airing the room, the smell is pretty much gone. It left much lingering chemical smell in the infants mattress.
