Buy Your Baby Supplies at Baby Earth Today! Baby Stores are used by thousands of people every day. Whether you're eagerly anticipating your first child or grandchild, celebrating your friend's adoption, or contributing a gift to the office baby shower for a coworker, you know that babies need many things to be safe, warm, and comfortable.

From small items like pacifiers and onesies, to big-ticket items like convertible car seats and cribs, the possibilities are nearly endless! Shopping for baby products at local stores, however, can be time-consuming and expensive, particularly if you have a specific item in mind. Nearby stores may not carry what you're looking for, and if they do, you're at their mercy with respect to pricing.

Bambi Baby

BAMBI BABY Visit Site

Bambi Baby has a long history as a family owned-and-operated Baby Store in the greater New York area, having opened its first retail location in 1976. Customers will find many of today's hottest brands of baby gear, such as Dolce Babi, Natart, Britax, and more.

In order to compare Baby Stores, we chose a popular nursery furniture set - DaVinci's Kalani 4-in-1 crib and combo dresser in a cherry finish - to determine availability and pricing with each retailer. Bambi Baby is one of two stores in our review that did not carry either of these items. However, they do carry a wide range of convertible cribs by other manufacturers such as Roma and Maximo; shoppers should be aware that much of what Bambi Baby carries is distinctly higher-end and thus might not be the preferred retailer for customers with more modest budgets. Fortunately, the site offers a 5% discount off any purchase for signing up for Bambi Baby's mailing list.

You also won't find some of the most common baby items at Bambi Baby. If your shopping list includes diapers, feeding accessories such as spoons and dishes, or basic clothing, you'll need to look elsewhere. Bambi Baby does have some items that aren't easily found using the navigation categories; for example, we didn't find baby monitors listed under Gear or any other category, but one did turn up after using the search function.

Customers will receive free shipping for orders of more than $100. Bambi Baby also has options that include delivery to the room of your choice ($349) or white glove delivery plus assembly ($399). Unfortunately, shoppers outside of the 48 contiguous United States are not currently served by Bambi Baby (sorry, Alaska and Hawaii!).

Bambi Baby is the only store in our review whose return policy specifically mentions replacements for incorrect orders, damaged products, or items that arrive with pieces missing. Customers only need to contact the company at the toll-free number listed on the order receipt, and the customer service team will take care of the appropriate arrangements. For returns on unopened, unused products, shoppers have 30 days from the date of purchase to get a refund or exchange. Given that baby items are often purchased well in advance - as a baby shower gift months before the little one arrives, for example - this may not meet some shopper's needs, especially compared with several other retailers in our review who allow returns for up to a year.

Overall, Bambi Baby is ideal if you're looking for higher-end strollers, car seats, and furniture and you plan to use it right away.

A BABY Visit Site

With a tagline proclaiming "Only the best for Baby!" it's no surprise that aBaby, a retailer with a showroom in Brooklyn, carries a wide range of high-end products for infants, toddlers, and children. As the only store in our review that offers custom baby furniture, aBaby might be the perfect shopping destination for customers who are looking for a one-of-a-kind, heirloom-quality crib, cradle, or other baby furniture.

Using the aBaby website is simple and intuitive: shoppers can use the top navigation to sort products by themes, gifts, and occasions, or go directly to the desired items, which include:

  • Baby Furniture
  • Children's Furniture
  • Bedding
  • Nursery Decor
  • Bassinets and Cradles
  • Playtime (such as outdoor playsets and play kitchens)
  • Personalized Gifts

For customers looking for bargains, aBaby makes it easy to find deals on the Sales & Promotions tab. Shoppers can find weekly specials, markdowns, and closeouts that offer significant discounts over list prices.

In general, aBaby's pricing is somewhat competitive with other online retailers. For example, in the DaVinci Kalani series, the convertible 4-in-1 crib in a cherry finish sells for $229 at aBaby, with an additional $24.99 for shipping, while the combination dresser retails for $399 and ships for free. Other retailers offer the crib for $219-$250, most with free shipping; aBaby's competitors sell the dresser for $249-$409.

Noticeably absent from aBaby's inventory are standard baby supplies such as diapers, car seats, and clothing.

aBaby's return policy is fairly standard: customers can return items for refund or exchange within 30 days of receipt. Shipping costs are non-refundable, and the customer has to pay the shipping costs on any returns. There is a 15% restocking fee on larger items, and no returns or exchanges are accepted for custom items.

With respect to customer satisfaction, aBaby's results are definitely a mixed bag. On the one hand, we're impressed with their A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau for the greater New York City area, and that nearly 100 reviews on aBaby's site show five-star feedback from happy shoppers. On the other hand, reviews on other sites indicate serious issues with customer service. Some shoppers waited months for their product to be delivered, and in some cases the order never shipped at all. When those late or never-shipped items are needed in time for the arrival of a baby, customers are understandably upset. Other complaints mention that the color of the furniture didn't match what was shown online, and that it was a hassle to get a refund without being charged a restocking fee.

While we love the idea of being able to get custom-made furniture that can be passed down from one generation to the next, we would like to see a higher degree of customer satisfaction, particularly with respect to prompt shipping of in-stock items.

Fortunately, online baby stores make it easy, efficient, and affordable to find everything you need for the little one without ever leaving home. With just a click of a mouse, you can have infant and toddler products - diapers, wipes, themed nursery bedding and decor, and much more - delivered right to your doorstep.

As you consider shopping at online baby stores, you should keep the following criteria in mind:

  • Prices. How do the prices at the retailer compare to its competitors, especially for commonly-sold items like diapers and nursery bedding?
  • Selection. Does the store offer a wide variety of baby items to choose from?
  • Customer Service. If you have a question or concern, are you likely to get a helpful response?
  • Return policy. What is the retailer's policy if your baby items don't meet your needs and you'd like a refund?
