Packaging Baby Products

IMPORTANT: Failure to comply with FBA product preparation requirements, safety requirements, and product restrictions may result in the refusal of inventory at the Amazon fulfillment center, disposal or return of inventory, blocking of future shipments to the fulfillment center, or charging for preparation or for noncompliance at the fulfillment center.

Any product for children age three or younger that has an exposed surface greater than 1″x1″ must be packaged so it will not be damaged during receipt, stocking, shipment preparation, or shipment to the customer. Units that are not contained in a sealed, six-sided package or have an opening greater than 1″x1″ must be placed in a sealed poly bag or shrink-wrapped.
