We offer two types of International shipping
From our experience the Tracked delivery will arrive slightly quicker than Standard but both may be subject to delays caused outside of our control by couriers, customs processing and weather delays.
Standard (untracked) and Tracked - neither is an 'express' service.
Shipping to mainland UK destinations is free! However, please note:
- The Channel Islands are treated as 'international' due to the increased postage costs
- International deliveries are charged by weight and destination
If you are local to our new Baby Store in St Albans, Herts, you are welcome to come over and collect/buy your item from the Baby Store. Our address is
Hello Baby Nursery & Baby Store
2, Spring Valley Business Centre
Herts AL3 6PD
We are open from 09:00 until 17:00 M-F
Unfortunately, from time to time, items can be delayed in the post. We are not able to give refunds or send replacements until 10 working days for UK deliveries or 25 working days for international deliveries have passed after the expected delivery date. These are the timescales after which the Royal Mail and Couriers consider an item to be officially lost. See more information about lost UK mail and lost international mail.
From our experience, deliveries are almost always delayed due to the recipient not being at home when the delivery is attempted. The delivery person should normally leave a card but unfortunately this is not always the case. We therefore suggest that before contacting us you check with members of your household and neighbours to see if they have the package or a delivery card. You should also check with your local sorting office/courier depot.
