Frequently Asked Questions

What is your business about?

MotherRucker is a carrying and parenting consultancy with a sling library and products available for purchase.  We offer expert knowledge through consultations to help you carry your child safely and securely in a sling or carrier from birth to 10 years old.

How does it work?

Clients usually book a consultation with us so they can try on lots of options before they go on to hire or purchase their favourites.  This ends up saving our clients money in the long run as they only buy once and they know they already love it.  You do not have to have a consultation in order to hire or buy from us.
