    It depends on the store. Most will let you try them out before buying, however. Do you have a Babies R Us or an upscale baby store nearby or will you be buying over the internet? Lots of internet stores will accept returns but you'll probably have to pay shipping and a 'restocking' fee which can be pricey.

    As Cedarmom said BRU and some baby specialty stores will let you try it out first. If you order online pay close attention to the return policy. Some will require fees. Allbeebaby is pretty good about returns from what I have heard.
