Little Lotus is a revolutionary line of baby products, including a swaddle, sleeping bag and blanket made with a fabric that keeps infants at an optimal temperature, both storing and releasing heat as needed to keep baby cozy and comfortable. The Little Lotus baby products were inspired by the Embrace Warmer, the low-cost baby warmer responsible for helping 150,000+ vulnerable babies worldwide.
Little Lotus will operate on a Toms Shoes-inspired model: for every US product sold, a baby will be helped by the Embrace warmer in a developing country, so that new parents can keep their babies cozy, and also extend a “warm embrace” to babies all over the world.
The print of the Little Lotus baby products is inspired by Touch our Future, and features the hand tracings of mothers and babies in developing countries helped by the Embrace infant warmers. The Embrace infant warmer helps to regulate the temperature of underweight and preterm infants. It costs a fraction of the price of existing solutions, and works without a constant supply of electricity. It is portable, safe, and reusable.
Embrace is a nonprofit organization that aims to advance maternal and child health by delivering innovative solutions to the world's most vulnerable populations. Embrace uses donations to provide the infant warmers in developing countries where they are needed most, in addition to educational programs on newborn health.
Embrace Innovations is a for-profit social enterprise focused on developing a line of disruptive healthcare technologies to prevent infant and maternal deaths in developing countries. In addition to research and development, Embrace Innovations also manufactures and distributes the Embrace infant warmers in developing countries, primarily through governments.
