Mompreneur, Katie Danziger's story:
As the saying goes, "necessity is the mother of invention," certainly is true for this mom of 3! My baby had spilled formula while in her car seat, and when I looked at the care instructions, they read, "Do not machine wash." While I was trying to spot clean, and wrestling with getting the cover back on, I thought, "there has to be an easier way. Why isn't there a bib for the car seat?" After many searches, which came up empty, I decided idea was born.
After searching for the perfect fabric that is both comfy to sit on, and won't leak thru to the car seat, and again coming up with nothing, I realized why this product didn't exist. I finally realized that there needed to be a creative solution, and while working with terrific people who know a great deal about fabrics, we developed the nomie babyTM fabrics, which consist of a silky soft layer next to the child's skin, a comfortable padding to help absorb spills, and a wicking material treated to make it water proof.
My next challenge was naming the comfy, waterproof, removable, washable car seat cover. That was a mouthful. When my 12 year old daughter was little she couldn't pronounce "cozy" and instead it came out "nomie, " which stuck in our family for anything that was soft, comfy and cozy. That is how the name was born!
