We try to hold most products in stock. There are a few lines that are despatched direct from our suppliers, please note in these instances we do not supply tracking numbers for couriers. You will be advised if they are getting despatched direct from a supplier at the time we process your order.
Delivery charges will apply to all international orders. Where there is not an option at checkout, email us at babystuff and we will send you a shipping quote before placing an order.

Economy Courier cannot ship to a PO Box.
We want you to be happy with your purchase, therefore if you change your mind about an item purchased or it is damaged or defective simply return it for replacement, refund or exchange.
We can not offer a refund on any Touchwood, Cariboo, Fairydown, Sheridan or Sleepyhead item if you simply have a change of mind on your purchase, as these items are made to order, or ordered in at time of your order being placed.
Returns need to be in their original condition including all protective packaging and returned within 7 days of you having received the goods along with your receipt. In the instance of damage or defect, we will replace the items, or if you prefer, refund the freight and purchase price. If you change your mind about an item we are happy to refund or exchange the product for you, but cannot refund freight costs in these instances (see point three below).
Points to note:
We cannot accept returns where the damage or defect is a result of something you did.
Larger items such as prams or carseats may need to be returned to the manufacturer for them to assess the damage if the goods are faulty
We often subsidise the cost of the freight. If you have changed your mind and decide to return the item, then the full cost of the freight will be retained by babystuff. I.e. if the item cost us $10 to ship and we have already charged you $6 (for orders under $100) then we will retain the extra $4 shipping expense when crediting your card. This also applies where the order was over $100 and the shipping was fully subsidised, if the item is returned we will retain the shipping cost to us before processing the refund. If in any doubt please contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org one of our sales team will be more than happy to assist you in this instance. This only relates to change of mind purchases and in no way relates to damaged or faulty goods.
We can't accept responsibility for returns that are sent by non-traceable postage methods and are not received by us. Understandably, without the items we cannot issue an exchange or refund.
Exchanged items can only be dispatched after the returned goods have been received in accordance with the returns policy. Please be aware that you will incur an additional freight charge for the delivery of the replacement item (unless the item was faulty, damaged, or sent to you in error). Please note no returns or refunds on DVD's which are considered a firm sale.
Please note we do not exchange or refund products purchased on special or that are end of line, so we ask that you choose carefully. Likewise we cannot accept returns on goods that we have ordered in specially for you that is not a standard line we hold in stock.
We cannot accept any goods that have been worn, used, or had their labels removed.
