5 Minute Recess, also known as 5MR by most babywearers, is a small, family owned business that was started in 2013 with the intentions of being able to save for their child’s college fund. Starting out with only 20 wraps from a single vendor, they’ve since expanded to offer a variety of soft-structured carriers, meh dais, wraps, ring slings, onbuhimos, cloth diapers and accessories from many different companies.
With such a large selection, they have the ability to offer something that falls into everyone’s budget as well as style. The $100 and Under tab on their website offers amazing deals on carriers as well as gift ideas. If you’re lucky, you’ll hop onto their website when they’re having one of their amazing sales! To save even more money, make sure you sign up for their reward program so you can start racking up points.
They even have items for your little ones! Do you have a child who loves to babywear like their parents? They have the cutest doll carriers and you can get one to match your carrier too! The doll carriers are only 27.99 so talk about a steal. The holiday gift-giving time is coming, better stock up!
5 Minute Recess has generously donated a Pellicano Tree of Life Fuschia size 5 to our raffle for the Bash as well as 10 wrap conversion Smitten bags!
It’s safe to say that Rachel and Matt have been able to save enough for their daughter’s college fund. In fact, they’ve been so successful that they’ve been able to provide multiple carrier donations to Babywearing International chapters (like ours!) and make monetary donations to charities such as La Leche League International, Make-a-Wish, and Doctors without Borders. As of 2016, they’ve donated over $18,000 to charity and provided multiple BWI chapters with discounts.
