Due to the volume of orders we process and our quick fulfillment system, changes and/or cancellations are not permitted once an order is submitted. If by chance we are able to cancel your order you will impose a 5% cancellation fee and can only issue store credit for cancellations. If you do need to make a return you can submit a request here.

We do not offer exchanges (only credited returns and store credit for gifts).

We offer returns on most products within 30 days of purchase as long as they are new, unused, unwashed, and still have all of the product tags/packaging. To view our complete return policy and to start the return process please click here.

Can you use a gift certificate and a coupon code? Yes, you may use a coupon code and a gift certificate on the same order.
How does your Diaper Dollar program work? On all your qualifying purchases, you will earn 1 point for every dollar you spend. Almost every item in our store qualifies even if they don’t show up on the product page. Items with more than one price will not display the correct number of points earns and may show “0 points earned.” Once you’ve earned enough points you can redeem them for a gift certificate to spend at our store.

How do I redeem my Diaper Dollars? Once you’ve earn enough points you can redeem them for a gift certificate to our store. To redeem your points; Diaper Dollar Rewards Program.
How do your coupon codes work? It’s easy really, shop for the items that you want. Once you have the items in your cart, add the coupon code to your order. The coupon code will add a line to your order telling us to add the free gift or promotion when we process your order. You do not have to add your “free gift” to your order; we will select it at random when we process your order. If you like, you can add notes in the comments of your order with your gender or closure preferences. Please read the fine print on the coupons because there are a few restrictions.
How often do you put up new coupon codes? Regularly but not on any set schedule. Once we run out of the “free gift” for that promotion we’ll change up the coupon code. Be sure you’re on our Mailing List and follow us on Social Media for updates.
What “free gift” will I be receiving? Do I get to pick the free “gift”? We have a designated box of “free gifts” for each promotion. We pick out the brand, style, colors, etc ahead of time and when filling your order we add one if you’ve used the coupon code. We try our best to pick a color/print that coordinates with other items in your order if possible. Don’t worry, we won’t send you a pink diaper if you have all blue diapers in your order. To see our current coupon code or promotion; Coupons.
I think I got the wrong “free gift,” what can I do? We have been known to mix up the “free gifts” from time to time if we were in a hurry but that is very rare. Please be sure to 1) check the coupon code you used. If we have more than one promotion you may have confused them. 2) Contact Us. We can verify what “free gift” you should have received with each promotion. If we did indeed make an error (we are human after all), then we’ll be happy to correct our error.
