Our organic line came about because we had a lot of mothers very concerned about all of the non-organic materials used in car seat covers that exist now. Yes, airing out can help, but there are actually babies out there who are allergic to various materials that are used in normal seat covers - and view ours as a Godsend.
Our advice is always that if using a NollieCover concerns you, don't buy one! On the other hand, we've had many thousands of happy mothers and very comfy and safe babies using our products for going on 7 years now.
To what I bolded...
My daughter has a polyester allergy and most car seat covers are polyester.
Wanna know how we resolved it? We dress her in clothes and such as to not allow her skin to touch the seat cover. If she's not wearing a hat, a thin silk scarf (well, a playsilk actually) goes behind her head.
I refuse to let my child be a crash dummy.
NollieCover, would you be willing to accept all responsibility for a child injured/killed in a crash who was using your seat cover at the time of the accident? Because by using your product on a car seat, the manufacturer is released of all liability. Would you be willing to replace a car seat that has been in an accident? Because using an aftermarket cover voids the car seat's warranty. Some states even have proper use clauses, making it ILLEGAL to use an aftermarket product on a car seat when the manual specifically states that no aftermarket products are to be used.
Your "extra thick" padding poses as a huge danger to children. Have you ever seen those space saver bags? Under crash forces, your padding will compress (like a space-saver bag) and the child is at risk for being ejected from the seat itself.
