Where can you exchange diapers for a different size?

Where can you exchange diapers for a different size without a receipt?

I have TONS of diapers that were given to me at showers without receipts. I have a few newborn, TONS of size 1s, an in between size box of 1-2, and just like one pack of size 2. I have a feeling I'm going to need to exchange those size 1s for size 2s...

But I don't have a receipt. Does anyone have any experience with this? Where can I exchange them? Will I be able to exchange them?

TIA!

  • Probably Wal-Mart but I have heard (although no experience with this) that some stores sell different size boxes of diapers - so you'd have to be sure Wal-Mart sells the same box size that you have.

  • I agree with PPs.  Anywhere that has the same diapers should let you exchange them.  You're just replacing their stock with more stock!
  • Thanks ladies! My SIL said she tried exchanging some at BRU, but they wouldn't let her.

    Walmart or Target. Good! At least I'll have two options. It would suck if I couldn't switch the sizes out!

    Target is very picky about returns and exchanges. You can only exchange/return like $30 a year with out a receipt. Even if it is an even exchange, they count it against you.

  • Up to you, but I wouldn't exchange the diapers until you're wanting to buy the next size. It's really very difficult to know how many your LO is going to need. If you BF, you may find that you are changing your LO's diaper every 2 hrs, and if so, you'll go through ALOT of diapers at size N and 1.

    Yeah they tell you $30 but they can actually do higher. We went in with 5 cases of Pampers (added up to way more than $30) and said we got them as shower gifts. They let us exchange them out with no problem.

    I'm not planning on exchanging yet, I'm planning on doing what you said and waiting until he gets here to see what he will need, as he needs it. I just wanted to nail down a place to exchange them so that I wasn't worrying about it! lol

  • Yep, Wal-Mart.  My WM will give me cash for anything they carry, whether I got it there or not.

    It's actually $70. OP, I'd try Wal-mart first. I was actually able to return my Pampers w/ Drymax back to BRU and get the ones without, so maybe it just depends on the store.
  • Wal-mart was not my friend in exchanging things. Target was much better, but I had to be firm about what I wanted. They will give up to $70 in store credit per year per person (they take your ID and scan it). I had a baby bjorn carrier (got two) and exchanged it there. We went in circles a few times. "No, I don't have the reciept. No, I did not register here, I did a universal registry on amazon. I just want store credit to get more baby stuff and this carrier is brand new in the box, you sell it here and the person who bought it got it at a Target in another state and I cannot get the reciept from her."
