You may place your order in one of the following ways:
The easiest and fastest way to order and receive your products is to use our online shopping cart system. This system will allow you to know what is in stock and ready to be shipped. We try to maintain stock as much as possible but on occasion we do run out of certain items. If you would like to order a product that is out of stock, you may do so by placing a special order. You can also contact us either by phone or e-mail if you have any questions about special order and expected time of delivery. We are happy to accommodate special orders as best we can. Orders placed and paid through our online shopping cart system can be processed immediately and will usually ship within 2-5 business days of receipt of your payment.
If you are having difficulties placing your order with our online shopping cart, you may e-mail us your order. We will let you know what we have in stock and reserve these items for you. We will then tally your order including taxes and shipping costs, and email you your total. You may then choose one of our payment methods as listed below. Please do not send us your credit card number by email. Once we receive your order request, we will call you for your credit card details.
You may place an order by telephone however we strongly encourage you to use the online or e-mail methods as they are the most efficient and accurate ways for us to handle your order.

About our Packaging
In keeping with our environmentally-friendly philosophy, we try to recycle and reuse boxes and packaging supplies that come to our house. That being said, your order may arrive to you in a previously used box and/or packaging supplies depending on what we are able to reuse and recycle at home. We also try to use the least packaging supplies as possible to minimize costs as well as save a few trees.

Normal wear and tear such as repelling fleece and diaper leaks due to laundering problems is not considered a defect and will not be covered under manufacturer's warranty.
