Q. What size sleeper works best for a weighted memory bear?
A. For weight between 3-5 lbs, sleepers that are NB or larger work best. For weight 6lbs and more, sleepers 3 monty or bigger work best.

Q. Can I send an outfit instead of a sleeper? I want to use my baby's coming home outfit.
A. Yes! I can use outfits, but this is where photos will be beneficial for me when it comes to designing your bear. The outfit would ideally need to be a long sleeve and long pants to work. However, onesies with other items can be combined to create a whole bear. Will discuss in messages.

Q. Can I let my child play or sleep with these bears?
A. No. These are meant more-so as keepsake and decorative. However, they can of course hold and touch them gently. These do weigh quite a bit and can become dangerous if left unattended. Small pieces can become choking hazards.

Q. Can you make one from a preemie sleeper?
A. Yes!

Q. What fabrics work best?
A. I can use most fabrics/materials. Some fabrics may cause an issue such as silk, lace, chiffon, rayon, crochet/knit.

Q. Can you do other animals?
A. No, sorry I cannot.

Q. Can I change my mind after I have mailed you my items?
A. Of course. I understand how difficult it may be to let go of something so special and meaningful, and then to have a stranger cut them into pieces. So yes, if you change your mind, please simply message me and I can cancel your order. you will however be responsible to pay to ship your items back. I will create a new listing for shipping cost. You will be charged the cheapest method unless stated otherwise.

Q. Do you offer embroidery or personalization?
A. Unfortunately I do not. You can get something embroidered and send with your items. I can incorporate them onto your bear for you.

Q. Can I add a baby hat or a tutu skirt?
A. Yes.

**Please keep in mind that the nose and ribbon are hot glued on. So it is imperative that small children should not be left alone with these memory bears as they can become a choking hazard.

**Please do not grab or hold onto these weighted bears by any of their appendages. They should be held or cradled just like a real baby. Pulling on the arms, legs, or head could potentially rip their seams apart. I do double stitch, but the fabric content may be fragile which can cause them to tear away from the seams. Please be gentle with your weighted memory bear.

**Due to gravity and how your package was handled during transit, your bears may appear slightly flat or misshapen. You can simple just set it upright and gently press on its body to press it back to its original form.

**Please allow a 1-2 oz weight discrepancy as some scales may measure slightly different than others.

**Spot clean only.

**Do not heat for any reason and especially in a microwave

**You are purchasing at your own risk. You understand that these items are non replaceable and there are risks in mailing your items to me and vice versa that they can become lost or damaged.

I bought two of theses bears for my sister’s two children and we couldn’t be happier! WishUponABear was so easy to work with and worked wonders with our two-piece outfits. You won’t regret this purchase. Lasting memories in a bear!

Thank you so much, Holly, for the amazing bears that you made, they are a wonderful remembrance of the boys that we lost. The design is so cute and well made and I love that they are the same weight as our boys. Holly was very communicative, answering questions before I ordered and talking through with me what she needed. She let me know when work started and when they were done, and they shipped very quickly. I look forward to purchasing again for our rainbow babies.

Holly was great to work with! We got two bears made out of the outfits our boys wore home to the hospital and we love them! Holly kept us informed of when she received the clothing items we shipped, when she started our bears and when she shipped them. She was very quick at making them and they are perfect. Couldn’t recommend more!
