COVID-19 UPDATE: Yes we're open so you can get the necessary clothing and care items for your tiny baby. Non-essential products and gift wrapping are currently unable to be purchased, and we will not deliver directly to hospital units until further notice. Please allow more time for your order to be shipped as we are taking extra precautions in our packing process and couriers are running at a lower frequency. Kia kaha xx

- Other main centres in two days after dispatch.
- For remote or rural locations please allow approx 3-5 working days after dispatch, as your parcel will be passed on to NZ Post. If you need your items urgently we recommend using an alternative, non-rural address if you have one (e.g. a nearby family member, friend, or your work address) as it will get to you much faster.

Please note that in this case you cannot make any claim for loss or damage to the parcel.
I'm in Auckland too, can I pick up? Yes! We work from our residential address in Torbay, North Shore. At checkout please select the Pick Up option, then email firstname.lastname@example.org or use our "Contact Us" form to arrange a time, we'll provide our full address at this point.

RETURNS AND EXCHANGES:
Help! My baby is growing quickly and hasn't worn these clothes - can I return them? That's great news and yes, clothing in new condition can be returned. If you find an item you never got around to using or you change your mind we can offer you a refund or exchange on any item (excluding 'Seconds' and custom prints) purchased within the last 30 days.
What do I need to do to return it? To be eligible for a refund, the item must be returned in as-new, resaleable condition. It must be unwashed, unworn, and with all original tags attached. Delivery costs on your original purchase are non-refundable, and you will be responsible for the delivery cost of sending the item back to our office. When sending an item back to us, please ensure that the item is well packaged so that it arrives in as-new condition. Your refund will be processed once we have accepted the returned goods.
I found a faulty item, what happens now? We try to check all orders before they are sent, but occasionally there may be a manufacturing fault that we may have missed. We are happy to always meet our responsibilities under the Consumer Guarantees Act. If an item is not fit for purpose or develops a fault, please contact us as soon as possible with a description of the item and the problem. Try to include a photo of the faulty part, as this will assist us in arranging a replacement to be sent out to you.
What about custom printed clothing and birth prints? Please double check that your details and choices are correct before submitting your order. Unfortunately as these items are made to order we are unable to offer a refund. In the event that we have made a typing error we'll provide a replacement with the correct details as quickly as possible.
A note on Seconds: When buying a 'second' item, the fault is clearly described on the product page. These faults are usually cosmetic, most commonly the fabric is marked or occasionally there may be a small hole or flaw. If a Seconds product develops an additional fault, eg a broken dome, we will replace or refund the item under the Consumer Guarantees Act as above.
