Dear Mama Whose Baby Won't Sleep

October 15, 2014 2 min read

Dear Mama Whose Baby Won't Sleep, You are tired and overwhelmed, your hair is a mess, you are still wearing yesterday's sweatpants, and you thrive off of coffee. You are not alone.  Your house is a complete mess because you have to tend to your baby's needs for what seems like every 5 minutes. You are not alone. You are still struggling to lose the baby weight that won't seem to budge or still struggling to adapt to your new, postpartum body and are feeling far from sexy. You are not alone. You do not believe in "crying-it-out" so every hour when your baby is up, you are up, too. You are not alone. Your baby wakes up 6 times a night to feed and you start feeling as if you are just a milking cow. You are not alone. You feel that you have failed at motherhood as your tears fall down your face and wonder if this is normal. You are not alone.  You are frustrated and on the edge of giving up hope and don't feel like trying anymore. You are not alone. photo 1 (9) Mama, you will never regret a having a dirty or messy and unorganized home for a few days or even weeks because you chose to put your child's needs first. Mama, you will never regret being a few pounds heavier than you'd like or your newly widened hips & marks because, in exchange for your pre-baby body, you gained a miracle that will remind you each and every day why you traded it all. Mama, you will never regret getting up for your child in the middle of the night and running to your child's cries; even at every hour since you decided to not let him cry himself to sleep because you know that you tried. Mama, you will never regret feeding your child throughout the night or feeling like you are just there to provide milk because you will see him grow big and strong. Mama, you will never regret feeling as if you have failed nor the tears you have cried because everytime you look at your baby, it will be a reassurance that you did a good job. Mama, you will never regret feeling frustrated or hopeless because everytime your baby giggles and coos, you will know that he loves you no matter how you feel. Becoming a mother is the most difficult, rewarding, awesome, scary, and trying time of your whole entire life. The best advice that I can give you is to have no regrets, just lessons learned. You will never have this moment in time again because, by tomorrow, today has come and passed. Cherish every moment. And, remember, you are not alone.  5add1a5491573df590b3fd0571e0cbe8

Shipping & Delivery

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. There is an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as online shopping has skyrocketed, due to store closures and stay-at-home mandates. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 4-6 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. Thanks for your support and understanding.

Are you in Canada? Specifically, are you outside of a metropolitan centre? We need to alert you to a disruption in shipping due to COVID-19. Our preferred shipping provider, UPS, has informed us that they cannot guarantee express shipping for many locations. We have also seen that packages delivered to Toronto, Ottawa, Vancouver, etc, are not waylaid, but packages delivered to areas just outside of these cities are being held in transit for days or even weeks. UPS has discontinued their guarantee of 1-4 day delivery, which you can read more about here. Therefore, we can guarantee early fulfillment but not early delivery of our goods from our warehouse to your door at this time.

 

We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping with our partners at UPS. Once your order is received and processed, it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse. That’s our commitment and we stand by it.

We ship within Canada and the United States via UPS with Standard & Expedited shipping (whichever is faster)

For locations outside of the US and Canada, we ship using FedEx International (EUROPE and Other Nations), which is usually in transit for 7-10 business days, depending on location.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Delays caused due to custom withholds are not included in these estimated delivery times.

Returns & Exchanges

BodyRock Equipment

We offer a 30-day return policy, as long as: it is not more than 30 days past the date of delivery; and your item is in its original condition and packaging with the original order number. Refunds will be issued when the equipment is received back to the BodyRock warehouse, minus the original cost of shipping, and the customer is responsible for the costs of return shipping. To request a refund on physical product purchases, please contact us.

Digital Products

We cannot issue refunds on digital goods such as e-books or videos, as these are non-tangible goods that are irrevocable once the order is placed.

Clothing

All of the BodyRock clothing is made to order and so is final sale. If you have any questions about sizing prior to placing your order, please contact us.
