We do not accept returns after 30 days from receipt of purchase.

What forms of payment are accepted?
Visa, MasterCard and American Express.

What about international orders?
We do ship internationally, but our system doesn't like to process them very easily. So if you place your order we will contact you with shipping options via email, when you decide your shipping method we will add that amount to your order when we process your credit card. International orders are a lot of work so we ship only about twice a week. Don't hesitate to contact us with any questions about international shipping. If we do not hear back from you within 15 days we will ship your order via cheapest method and charge you as such.

Can I have my items gift wrapped?
Yes. Click on gifts and you will see an idea of how your gift will be wrapped. There is an added charge of $5.00 for any gift wrapping.

What is your shipping policy?
Orders placed by 12 Noon EST Monday through Friday (excluding holidays) will ship from our warehouse within 3-4 business days (usually quicker). Express shipments can be quoted for Next day, 2-day or 3-day shipping, the express costs quoted online are just a quote and at times there are additional costs, since we need to ship so quickly we can't always get a hold of you to let you know of the additional costs so you should know that express shipping can be more expensive. We do our best to ship out express packages same-day. All regular ground orders are not subject to these extra costs and what is quoted is the actual cost of shipping.

How are the Shipping Costs determined?
Shipping costs are based on the total order weight and size, also see above question for more information.

What are Multiple Ship-To Addresses?
Please contact me for any multiple shipping orders and I will do what I can to take care of all your shipping needs:

Out of Stock Policy?
If your selected merchandise is out of stock, we will inform you immediately upon receipt of order. We will inform you via e-mail, and we will do our best to fulfill your order. If this is not satisfactory, we will give you a full refund.

Do I pay sales taxes on my purchases?
Rhode Island residents will have sales tax automatically added to their order. If Nonchalant Mom is not collecting your state's taxes, you are expected to comply with your state's current laws regarding purchases over the Internet.

How do I report damaged shipments?
Please email: and we will process a claim and/or replacement. UPS usually requires an inspection in the event of damage so please hold onto all packing materials and the item until further notice. Nonchalant Mom MUST be informed within 7 days of delivery of all damaged goods, or we cannot process a claim. Please inspect all deliveries thoroughly upon arrival.

What is meant by “tips and information” on parenting?
These tips and information are only gleanings on natural parenting that have been picked up from
various friends, doctors, and other moms. It’s not easy to find information on natural parenting or
suggestions on easy natural remedies, but as a mom you have to go with your instincts and some things can be cured at home but your pediatrician should always be made aware of anything that you are trying with your children.
