If a promotional item was included on a purchase and IS NOT returned, the value of the promotional item will be deducted from the refund amount. Promotional items may only be returned with the original purchase or otherwise have no value individually.

Enlightened Baby will provide a return label for your convenience, in shipping back your items. This allows us to work with the carrier directly (as both the sender and receiver in this case) to recover a lost or damaged item.

Should there be a defect or product issue, we would be happy to assist you in contacting the manufacturer for a resolution.

We ship using the United States Postal Service, UPS or FedEx. We ship Priority in most cases, or first class, if within the weight limit.  No signature is required at delivery, however a tracking number will be provided to you as soon as it is available. Please make sure someone is available to receive the package, if you are uncomfortable with it being left unattended in your absence. It may take up to 7 to 10 business days to process your order, depending on size, gift wrap, holidays and how fast our hands can move. When possible, we ship out on the same day. We assure you we are doing our absolute best to get your order out as quickly as possible and appreciate your every understanding of our tiny mom-run shop.

All returned and undeliverable packages will be billed for shipping (regardless of free shipping being previously met) and will not be shipped until shipping is paid. Enlightened Baby is not responsible for confirmed deliveries that have been stolen, misplaced, mis-delivered or for delays in delivery by USPS, UPS or FedEx due to weather or their own internal errors. We are, however, always happy to assist in providing any and all necessary information needed to help you recover these items from the carrier, including working with the carrier, as the sender. In the event a case must be opened, full cooperation on your part, with the carrier is required to reach a resolution. Notice MUST be give to Enlightened Baby, that a package was not received, though marked delivered, WITHIN 4 BUSINESS DAYS of the tracking indicating delivery; NO EXCEPTIONS. We are unable to open a case, without such notice in the required time.

We may choose to ship items direct from the manufacturer when this service is available; this allows fewer carbon emissions in ‘double-delivering’ a product to us and you, as well as ensuring you have the most recent version of an item, with the greatest amount of time before expiration (especially pertinent for car seats).
