» RETURN POLICY

Please do not send your purchase without contacting us first to accommodate the return or refund, you will need an authorization number for us to process your request. We are happy to offer full refunds if you meet the below listed criteria: 

  • If you require a cancellation of your order before your item is shipped or before the customization process has begun (for any customized item), we have no problems giving a full refund at your request. If you received a proof but want to cancel (before sending to production), the value of the proof(s) will be deducted from your refund.
  • If the item has been shipped, we will give you a full refund after receiving the item back (unopened & unused within 10 days of receipt), the client is responsible for the cost of shipping. Custom items can not be returned.
  • If your item(s) where damaged during shipping please contact me with pictures and I will do my best to help. My goal is to make your transaction as joyful as possible!

(Please note that custom items can NOT be cancelled or refunded after sent to production, this includes any personalized items, made-to-order and all custom swaddles and double sided blankets)

To complete your return, we require a receipt or proof of purchase. So if you don't have the original invoice print out a copy of the one sent to your email when placing your order, make sure the order number is legible.


REFUNDS (if applicable)
Once your return is received and inspected, we will send you an email to notify you that we have received your returned item. We will also notify you of the approval or rejection of your refund.

If you are approved, then your refund will be processed, and a credit will automatically be applied to your credit card or original method of payment, please take into consideration that refunds can take up to 14 days or a full month to show in your credit card statement.

If you haven’t received a refund yet, first check your bank account again.
Then contact your credit card company, it may take some time before your refund is officially posted.
Next contact your bank. There is often some processing time before a refund is posted.
