We take every care to ensure your BINI reaches you in perfect condition. If you receive something that has been damaged in transit or appears faulty, please immediately contact our customer service team customercare@binibamba.com providing photographs to support your query along with your name & BINI order number.

  

Is there anything to be aware of when using a 100% natural product with my baby?

Sheepskin & wool are incredibly resiliant, hardwearing, naturally antibacterial & dirt resistant thanks to the lanolin found in wool. 

Natural products such as sheepskin & wool can change in colour when exposed to sunlight & this is part of the natural nature of our products & is to be expected over time.

Some minor shedding can occur on our sheepskin Snugglers where our pre-cut harness holes are cut into the sheepskin. Before use, we recommend running your fingers along the edge of the harness holes & giving a gentle shake to release any loose fibres. 

Some natural shedding can occur with our merino wool clothing. We recommend giving your BINI a good shake before use.

 

Are your sheepskins suitable from birth?

Our Snugglers, Wrigglemats & Puffmuff are every Binibabes BFF from birth. We independently test our sheepskins to ensure they are REACH compliant & free of nasty chemicals - Binibabes can sleep tight.

Suitable for use in your moses basket, bassinet & baby bouncer from day one, sheepskin has some amazing health benefits for newborns. Naturally thermostatic, sheepskin helps to regulate a baby’s body temperature (something that babies under 18 months struggle to do themselves) helping to keep your baby toasty in winter & cool come summer.

Find out more about sheepskin’s superpowers here & have a read of our safety guide here.

 

What can I use my Snuggler in?

Our sheepskin Snugglers have pre-cut harness holes that make them multi-use so your BINI really can grow with your baby. Use in your bassinet & moses basket from birth, buggy, baby bouncer, baby chair and more.

Please note we do not sell for use in car seats. To find out more about the different ways to use your Snuggler head here & for safety information take a peek at our handy guide here.

 

When can I use my Snuggler?

Our sheepskin Snugglers are designed for use all year around. Naturally thermoregulating they help keep your Binibabe toasty in winter and cool come summer. Avoid use in extreme temperatures or in very warm weather 27 degrees celcius or above to avoid over heating.

We do not recommend using our printed or stripe sheepskin Snugglers in high temperatures when your baby is bare skinned as suncream (and urine) can strip the sheepskin & colour transfer may occur. Using in these conditions is at your own risk.

 

Will a Snuggler fit my buggy?

Our Snugglers are universal fit for all buggy’s with 3 or 5 point harnesses where the straps can be undone. This allows you to thread the straps through our handy pre-cut holes & attach it to your buggy.

For models with a 5 point harness where the straps are separate to, or are detachable from the waist straps and click into a central clip, installation is simple and easy. Simply undo the harness & thread the shoulder straps through our Snuggler’s precut harness holes.

For models that have a looped continuous shoulder strap, you will need to undo the harness straps of your buggy in-order to thread them through the pre-cut harness holes of our Snugglers. Most buggy brands have quick & easy online tutorials available that explain how to undo your straps. Once undone, you can thread the straps through our pre-cut harness holes & then refasten your buggy straps.

Please note, the only make of buggy we are aware that our Snugglers are not compatible with are the newest Cybex models from 2022 onwards. The brand’s newest models have stitched down, continuous looped shoulder straps so it is not possible to undo them.

For a step-by-step guide on how to fit your Snuggler please head to our tutorial here.

 

Will the Puffmuff fit my buggy?

To attach the Puffmuff you need to be able to thread your waist and shoulder straps through the pre-cut harness holes. If your straps are continuous from waist to shoulder, you may be able to detach them to allow you to do this. You must also be able to thread the PUFFMUFF flap between the hood & top of your seat to fasten.

Please note, buggys with hoods that need to be zipped on are not compatible. Cybex models dating 2022 onwards are not compatible due to the continuous straps that do not separate at shoulder or waist, nor the Bugaboo Butterfly or Joolz Aer due to the fixed hood -  all other Bugaboo models are fully compatible as are most other best-selling models including Babyzen, Uppababy, Egg, Silver Cross & most Nuna. For more information please see our handy how to fit guide here. Please check that the Puffmuff is compatible with your buggy before purchase.


  

Can I collapse my buggy with the Snuggler or Puffmuff installed?

As with all sheepskin liners or footmuff’s, while it will be possible to partially collapse your buggy to accommodate getting your wheels in & out of a car for example, your buggy won’t fully collapse. Should you wish to fully collapse your buggy, you will need to remove your BINIBAMBA, however for regular day-to-day use you can leave fitted.

 

Is the Puffmuff outer PFC free?

Caring for the planet & the health of our Binibabes is our priority. The water & wind resistant outer of our Puffmuff is handmade from GRS certified 100% recycled polyester that is made from post consumer waste & is PFC free, helping to minimise our impact on the environment.

Perfluorinated chemicals (PFC’s) are chemicals applied to fabrics to increase their waterproof capabilities & are widely used in outdoor products. Research has shown that PFC’S are extremely persistent in the environment & take a very long time to break down allowing them to accumulate in quantities that damaging to the environment & also to the health of those wearing products that contain them. As part of our commitment to both the planet & the safety of our Binibabes we are proud our Puffmuff is PFC free.

 

How do I know what size to purchase?

Our sheepskins are one size, but as parents ourselves, we know picking the right size isn't always easy when it comes to clothing. We design with longevity in mind (love on loop before you hand me down!) & generally our sizing is generous to give our Binibabe’s room to grow. We want you to get the most use from your BINIBAMBA!

To give you the best possible guide, our clothing is labelled by size & age. We also include key measurements (taken flat) to aide you in your selection that can be found within the product description of each product.

 

How long does personalisation take?

Please allow 7 working days from order for personalised orders to be despatched.

 

I can't seem to input the full name into the personalisation box

Unfortunately we cannot accept personalised orders for names longer than 7 characters due to the restrictions of our embroidery machine. We suggest opting instead for an abbreviation of the full name, or the initials of your Binibabe.

Can I return a personalised item?

No, due to the bespoke nature of personalised items we are not able to refund or return them. EU orders will ship from the UK & the customer is responsible for all import duties & charges. 

 

Do you offer gift wrapping?

Each & every BINIBAMBA is presented ‘gift-ready’ as standard in our reusable cotton dustbags. You can add a FREE gift note at checkout which will be lovingly handwritten by our team on our branded BINI note cards. For extra ahhh appeal, you can also add one of our recycled BINIBAMBA gift boxes at checkout to your order. Please note that unfortunately due to their large size, we are unable to send our Puffmuffs in gift boxes.

 

Do you sell gift vouchers or gift cards?

The perfect gift if you’ve left it late or unsure which BINI to go for….our gift vouchers are delivered digitally either to your inbox or directly to the recipient. You can find them here.

 

How do I care for my BINIBAMBA? 

Treat your BINI with love. Our products are handmade from 100% natural materials & need to be treated with care.

Naturally antibacterial & dirt resistant (yes really!) thanks to the lanolin naturally present in sheepskin & wool, it's best for BINI & the planet to only wash when really necessary and always follow our product specific guidelines. We recommend sponging off light spills with a damp cloth, giving your BINI a regular shake & brush using a comb or sheepskin brush & for more stubborn spills on our sheepskins we suggest specialist dry clean (never machine wash).

For our merino wool clothing wash with care on a delicate, cool wool cycle, using a wool detergent. Reshape whilst damp & leave to dry away from direct heat.

For further tips on how to care for your new arrival (that’s your BINI!) head to our care guide & watch our tutorial on how to care for our sheepskin Snugglers here.
