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.

BUY BUY BABY

Visit Site

Buy Buy Baby is part of the Bed Bath & Beyond family of brands (hence the abbreviation "BBB" for both stores), with more than 100 retail locations throughout the US. As an online Baby Store, their selection is ample, from cribs to car seats and more.

Buy Buy Baby is strongly competitive with respect to price, but comes up somewhat short in terms of availability. For example, we looked for the DaVinci Kalani 4-in-1 crib and combo dresser in a cherry finish at every retailer in our review. Buy Buy Baby had the lowest price on the crib ($219.99, free shipping) in other colors, but cherry was unavailable. Also, the matching dresser wasn't listed in any finish. Fortunately, they do offer a robust Price Match Guarantee, and many customer reviews indicate that BBB makes the process very simple either using the instructions provided on the website or by making the request in-store.

We think most customers will be pleasantly surprised by BBB's return policy: one year from the date of purchase, in unused condition. Even if you don't have a receipt, they will make every effort to locate the record of the purchase using the credit/debit card number, order number, or any other available identifying information.

Shipping costs are equally customer-friendly: free standard shipping on orders over $49, including Alaska and Hawaii (some retailers don't ship there at all, let alone for free). Oversized or extremely heavy items will have a surcharge, and those items are clearly marked on the site.

We also love BBB's shopping tools that include Guides & Advice, videos, and a glossary of terms that might help new parents-to-be or clueless gift-givers to understand exactly what a particular baby product is used for. Included in those shopping tools are adoption checklists, to help parents-to-be who may not have had nine months to prepare; we love that BBB even thought to mention supplies like laundry detergent and culturally-appropriate clothing that would be useful for those traveling internationally for their adoption.

The only aspect of Buy Buy Baby's customer experience that left us scratching our heads was in regards to baby registry gift returns. While the site seems to indicate that the process is simple - return the item to a retail location or via mail - we found more than one customer review that stated that when they returned an item from their own registry, the purchase price was refunded to the gift-giver's credit card rather than as an in-store merchandise credit to the recipient. This may have been an error on the part of the store associates, but we do recommend that registry users find out for sure before creating their wish lists with Buy Buy Baby.

Overall, Buy Buy Baby is a good choice for customers who want baby items at the best possible prices, especially if their needs are flexible (for example, they're happy with the Kalani in a finish other than cherry). Buy Buy Baby earns high marks.

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.

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?
