Babes and Kids aims to deliver on time as promised, however for reasons beyond our control we are unable to guarantee that all orders will be delivered within the stipulated time frame. If a customer places two orders within 3-5 working days of each other, the orders will be packed collectively and sent together as one shipment once both orders are complete.
