Default How long to let mattress off-gas?

So we probably will have Gabriel in bed with us a fair bit, but we have a crib too and we need a mattress for it. Right now, we don't know when he'll be coming home from the NICU so we don't know how much time we have to get that mattress - a few weeks at least - but we are also kind of wondering how early we need to get it. A friend said he had heard a new mattress needs to off-gas for at least a month before it is safe. Jimi looked online and found mostly info about firmness and number of coils, hardly anything about off-gassing and what he did find was saying more like a day than a month. Does anyone know anything about this? Thanks.

I asked Travis and he said they usually recommended a day at WG&R, but take that with a manufacturer's grain of salt

Jimi asked the nurse last night and she said a day or so in a well ventilated area.
