Shipping Policies

At present we ship only within Canada and the US. If you are a Canadian customer and would like a package shipped overseas (e.g. as a gift) please contact

We try our utmost to have your parcel shipped by the next business day, but it can take up to 3 days. You will be notified via email once your order has shipped.

We are going green and no longer including a printed invoice in your package. If you require one, please let us know in the order comments. As well, whenever possible we ship in recycled boxes or reclaimed packing material in an effort to reduce our environmental impact.

Shipping Canada Wide (Free for orders over $75!)

All of our parcels are shipped using Canada Post Expedited and our rates include $100 of insurance coverage and a tracking number (please contact us if you would like us to ship your order with full insurance - not a bad idea if you are planning to place a large order) and we can let you know what the cost will be. 

As soon as your parcel is shipped you will be sent an email notifying you that your order has been shipped, and will include your tracking number. 

Once your parcel is in the hands of Canada Post, Canada Post is responsible for its safe delivery. In the event that your package arrives damaged or does not arrive within the expected delivery time frame, as outlined below, please contact us immediately at so that we can initiate a claim for you with Canada Post.

$5.00 Letter Mail Option

Ordering just one diaper or a swim diaper? Thanks to our handy dandy vacuum sealer, we can now offer you $5 letter mail shipping. (Note: we will extend this shipping to any small products that can fit in an envelope e.g. Snappis, RLR, repair kits etc. If in doubt, give us a shout!)

This option does not have insurance - if you require tracking/insurance, please select the expedited standard shipping. We assume no responsibility for lost or damaged letter mail items. Orders must be light weight and flat, in which packaging may be removed to make items fit rendering them non-returnable. Orders that do not qualify will be billed via PayPal for balance of flat rate shipping.

Pick Ups

This option is also available in Ottawa by appointment. We are local, so we can have your package ready within 1-2 days. We will send you an email when your order is ready to pick up.
