I was looking forward to receiving this as a very gracious gift.
I appreciated the esthetic, which is more in line with my style.
It was ordered in December, and I became anxious when it was supposed to arrive about January 29th (longer than I would have preferred, but then learned it was an exclusive, so it made sense) and feared someone may have stolen it off my porch. Then we were told it would not arrive till late February, the 20th or that weekend.
This was closer to my due date than I’d prefer, which made me quite anxious, but a coworker graciously lent me an old car seat, in case I delivered earlier (since you can’t go home with your baby without a car seat). When we followed up about the tracking, we were told it wouldn’t ship till MAY…approximately two months after my due date.
This meant it would be about FIVE MONTHS after it was ordered. This meant we would have needed to order it before I was even halfway through my pregnancy...
Again, I get it’s an exclusive print, but the fact that we were jerked around, causing unnecessary stress during my pregnancy was my biggest issue.
Had we known from the outset how long this would have actually taken, I would have been disappointed, but I would have moved on and been saved grief and anxiety that I might not have a car seat if I had delivered early.
I’m disappointed and expected better in the handling of this situation.
