My friend recently had a baby and did her entire registry through Babies r Us. She registered for a ton of newborn stuff (diapers, onesies, etc.), a breast pump and all breastfeeding accessories. She ended up having a large baby and none of the newborn stuff fit (except for maybe 2 weeks) and she was unable to breastfeed.
Even though everything was off her registry, she tried to return many items and was unable to! She was told over & over again that she had to have a receipt to make returns and also that returns have to be made within 90 days - so think about this timeline when planning a shower! You may want to make sure it is 2 or less months before your due date so if anything needs to returned post-partum, you can.
So... I would like to include a note in my shower invite to request gift receipts. I don't want to be rude, but it would be horrible if someone bought my expensive breast pump and I could never use nor return it! A waste of money!
Does anyone have ideas as to how I can (politely) ask for gift receipts? Maybe a poem?? haha...
