Nomie Baby Car Seat Cover Review and Giveaway





Babes in Disneyland is all about making traveling to Disneyland easier and I have a great product to tell parents about, the Nomie Baby car seat cover.  I didn’t know what to expect when I open the package and was instantly impressed.  I was excited to see how well made the product was and immediately took it out to the car and put it right over the existing car seat cover (which I had recently struggled to remove because my son had a diaper blow out).  I was pleased to find that the cover went on to the car seat with the greatest of ease and fit like a glove.  It’s not bulky and in the more than two weeks I’ve had it on my car seat, it hasn’t come off, shifted, or needed to be adjusted. The Nomie baby has elastic edges like a fitted sheet, but unlike the sheet currently on our bed, it doesn’t fly off at inopportune moments!

And how do you pull the straps through?  There are two Velcro openings that you simply pull your seat’s straps through and then close around them once you are finished.  It honestly couldn’t be easier.

The covers come in two different sizes—one for infant seats and one for toddler/forward-facing seats.  It is waterproof and according to the company’s website, it is made of three separate fabrics put together to give your child the most comfort while at the same time protecting your car seat. A cozy soft fabric sits against your child, a padded layer allows for absorption, and finally a third layer which is treated with a waterproof barrier keeps your car seat protected. The three fabrics have been quilted, so the padding won't clump in one area after machine washing. When the cover gets dirty, and it will, simply take it off your car seat, throw it in the washing machine then dryer, and slip it back over your car seat!

I couldn’t be happier with this car seat cover and wish I had had it with my first son who seemed to constantly get some sort of bodily fluid or food all over his seat. At $34 each, this product is a serious bargain, not to mention a blessing for moms tired or dealing with the awkward straps and struggles of removing their car seat cover in order to wash it. Moreover, purchasing a Nomie Baby car seat cover supports a mom-owned business and isn’t that the best type of business to support?

I am pleased to announce that the amazing mompreneur at Nomie Baby has generously offered to giveaway one car seat cover to a lucky reader.

I love the yellow cover for a toddler seat cover. Since there is no gold yellow is the closest thing. That is the school color of my oldest daughters college.

.....the grossest thing I have ever cleaned out of my son's carseat. Um, that just happened this past weekend. Let me just say -- a curvy drive down Highway 1 plus my carsick todder created a mess that I will just let you leave to your imagination. This carseat cover would have been a lifesaver.

I'd choose the toddler, in charcoal color (the navy is nice too, but I think the charcoal would hide spills and lint, etc better between cleanings)

Jennifer said...

I would love to have the infant one in charcoal for my cousin who is expecting. :)

I'm not sure what it was that I cleaned out but I know it was a mixture of food and beverage and black as coal. It had been sitting in the car for days ( I don't get out much) before I noticed it. I still have black stains from it.
