Important Notes:

  • If the item you are returning arrived with special packaging (bag, wax seal, bubble wrap, etc.), that means it needs the same special packaging for its return trip to our store. Any items that arrive to us damaged because of lack of protection during shipping will *not* be eligible for return, store credit, or refund of any kind.
  • Items returned to us that have been used*, washed*, stained, damaged, or in any way not "new" are not eligible for refund or store credit and will be returned to you.

  • If we have to reassemble your items for you, we will deduct an additional 10% restock fee from your return amount.

  • All sales of Clearance Items are final and may not be returned. No exceptions!

  • The following items may not be returned for any reason: Personal care products, laundry detergent, menstrual cups, potty training items, and nursing products.

  • Customer is responsible for sending items back to us at their own expense. We highly recommend adding insurance or Delivery Confirmation to trace your package. Sweetbottoms® is in no way responsible for returned items not received by us.

  • Once we receive your package, please allow up to 10 days to process your return. If you elect to receive a 100% store credit, your credit will be available immediately after processing in your account. It will automatically be applied to your next purchase. If you elect to receive a 90% refund, your refund may take up to 3-5 business days to process and show up as a credit on your bank or credit card statement. Please be patient as this is out of our control and solely dependent on your bank or credit card company.

  • Diaper Packages must be returned in full. If all included items are not returned, you will be charged the full retail price on the items kept.

  • If you received any form of FREE merchandise with your original order and a return causes you to fall below the $ threshold required to receive it, the free merchandise must be returned in new condition or the value of the free item/s will be deducted from your refund.

  • Refused Packages: You may not refuse your package as a form of return. All returned packages we receive are subject to a 20% restock fee plus actual shipping paid by Sweetbottoms.

  • Product Defects: If you believe you have received a defective product, please contact the manufacturer directly. Most of our manufacturers handle defective products and warranty issues directly in order to maintain quality control. If you need assistance locating the manufacturer's contact information, please let us know. If they require a copy of your receipt, you may access this information through your account. If you need any assistance in the warranty process, please contact us - We will be happy to help you. Please note: We cannot accept defective items back as returns.
  • Exchanges: We currently do not offer exchanges. As our inventory is constantly changing, we cannot guarantee we will have the item you'd like in stock when we receive your return. We will instead issue a store credit to your account so that you may purchase from our current inventory.
  • Sale pricing and promotions are not retro-active. We will not honor promotional discounts or sales/clearance to orders placed prior to the institution of the sale.
  • Returned Packages: If a package is returned to us because an incorrect address was provided at checkout, the customer will be responsible for reorder and reshipment fees. If a return is requested in lieu of reshipment, we will deduct our original shipping costs from the refund as well as a 20% restock fee.
  • Incorrect or Missing Items: We sincerely apologize if the order you received is not correct. While we strive for perfection, we are human and occasionally we make a mistake. When you receive your package, please inspect your order within 3 days and prior to washing or using any items. If you find any discrepancies, please contact us immediately and we will promptly address the issue. Note that items that have been used or washed cannot be returned.
