It has a slip resistant base. The angle is 13 degrees and like Hiccapop the wedge measures wider than most at 27.5 inches. It is the heaviest wedge of these five, weighing 1.4 pounds. Moonlight Slumber says their wedge is “Ultra soft, ultra safe.” Most of the customers that bought this wedge were very happy with it and it received a four-star rating.

All the crib wedges have a 12-degree slope except Moonlight Slumber, which is 13 degrees. All claim to be hypoallergenic and free of harmful chemicals. The heaviest wedge with the greatest degree of incline is Moonlight Slumber, and they have done internal testing to be absolutely sure their foam is safe and pure. They say, “The eco-friendly foam is infused with natural plant oils, so you can rest assured that your little one has proper support with baby-safe materials.” This company claims they meet the world’s most meticulous standards for low emissions of volatile organic compounds into the indoor air where baby sleeps.

If you have ever smelled a foam mattress when it is first unwrapped Moonlight Slumber’s emphasis on emissions from the wedge is very persuasive It’s hard to imagine a tiny baby breathing in the odor that may accompany new foam. Also a heavier weight and a non-slip bottom seems very important. That makes Moonlight Slumber a winner with Hiccapop outstanding also.
