How your contributions have helped!

Dear Little Lotus Community,

As January comes to an end, we want to take some time to highlight some of the moms and babies we've helped with the Embrace incubator.  Here are their stories:

This is Belmati Bodra from Gulika, a small village in Jharkhand. Her husband works as a laborer to support his family. When their baby was born, they traveled to the nearest district to deliver the baby in a hospital. Because the baby was born underweight, their he was placed in the Embrace infant warmer. The baby and mother are both doing well now.

 

Shamko Bai belongs to the Banjara community from a small village in Anta, Baran district, Rajasthan. She gave birth to twins at the community health center. One of the babies weighed just 1.75 kg, and was hypothermic at 35.6°C. The Embrace infant warmer was used to raise her baby's temperature and played a major role in stabilizing her baby's condition. 

We recently began a partnership with One Heart Worldwide, an amazing nonprofit organization working on saving mothers and babies in Nepal. They just began deploying the Embrace infant warmers in the field this month, and we're eager to see the impact they make.

Thanks to Little Lotus sales, we are also starting a project with Nuru International in Kenya this quarter, and are in process of figuring out logistics for shipping our warmers to their sites. 

We are thankful for all your support and together, we hope to continue our journey in helping those in need as we expand into more countries this year.

2016: A Year in Review

 

 

On behalf of the Little Lotus team, I would like to wish you and your family a happy New Year. As our first year in the market, 2016 was an awesome year for us, thanks to your support!

In particular, we would like to thank you for your patience as we worked through our design changes. At Little Lotus, we have the highest commitment to quality and safety, and sincerely hope you love your products. We also would like to thank you for contributing to our mission to help save babies around the world with the Embrace incubator, which each purchase you make goes towards.

This year, a number of new partners joined our #CompaniesGiveLove program, including Salesforce, Dermalogica, EY, and DLA Piper. We salute their generosity in providing their expecting employees with our products. 

We also would like to celebrate our partnerships and collaborations with March of Dimes, Dr. Harvey Karp, DockATot, Loved by Hannah and Eli, Cake Maternity, Zoe Organics, Tiny Prints and lululemon. We're proud to stand by these brands.

Little Lotus began with the goal of saving one million babies in the developing world, but we also want to support preemies right here in the U.S. In conjunction with our partnership with March of Dimes, in which we contributed proceeds from our Signature Prints during Prematurity Awareness month, we also launched our Preemie Swaddle. 


Earlier this year, I had the chance to meet President Obama again and updated him on our efforts since our initial visit to the White House in 2014. As we strive to help babies around the world, we’re so excited about our new partnership with One Heart World-Wide in Nepal, who began using the Embrace warmers earlier this year. We are continuing to work with Millennium Promise to help babies across Africa, and will be kicking off a new project with Nuru International next year.  


We have a number of new prints and design collaborations coming up in 2017, which we will begin launching in late January. We’re also planning to launch some new product lines this year, so stay tuned.

To further our social mission, we are working towards getting the Embrace warmers to the places of greatest need, including Syria. We are currently in discussions with nonprofit partners working on the ground there; if you are able to help in any way, please contact me directly.

It's been an incredibly busy year, and we can't wait to show you what 2017 has in store for us. Again, thank you for your continued support and for joining us in our mission to help parents & babies everywhere. Here's to a great 2017 for you and your family!

How Little Lotus Has Helped A Family Through Turbulent Times

Dear Little Lotus Community,

Our hearts go out to everyone affected by the floods in Louisiana. We recently got an update from one of our customers, whose family had to evacuate their home:

ChrisA Baby"Last weekend, with the help of the fire department, we evacuated our flooded home in south Louisiana. We awoke to two feet of water on the street in front of our house, and the situation got steadily worse. My wife and I packed bags for evacuation; only the things we could carry above our heads came with us

Today, we wanted to tell you that our Lotus came with us. In retrospect, it says a lot about a product like this when it cross into that essential group of items in your house. Our last week has been turbulent to say the least, and there are hard times ahead, but our 11 month old child continues to sleep comfortably through the night. 

Thank you to your entire team. 5/5 stars. Would buy again."


- Christopher A.
  

We are so glad to know that Little Lotus played even a small role in helping Christopher's little one find comfort during this time of stress. 

We'd love to hear from you and share with our community how Little Lotus has made a difference in your life! If you have a story to share, please email us at info@littlelotusbaby.com

Your contribution helped saved a baby!

Dear Little Lotus Community,

Thanks to your contribution to our 1:1 model of giving, you helped us save the life of a baby in India.  One of our nonprofit partners just gave us an update about Sarita, a mother in India who gave birth to her baby prematurely.  Her baby was severely underweight and in need of temperature regulation.  He was placed in an Embrace warmer, which helped stabilize his temperature, following which he was released from the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit within a week's time.

We love hearing stories like these - it's what keeps us going as we work around the clock here at Little Lotus to get the best products to you and your baby.  

Here is the story of Sarita Devi:

Sarita Devi, a mother of two, from Daulatpur hamlet, Murgiabigha delivered her second baby at 35 weeks of gestation in Paraiya PHC . The baby was severely underweight at 1.5 kg (3.3 lbs.).  He was also hypothermic with a temperature of 35.7 ℃ (96.3 ℉).   The baby was too weak to cry after birth and needed special medical attention.

 As the baby was hypothermic, he needed to be placed in an incubator, but the radiant warmer in the facility was not working at the time.  Fortunately, they had the Embrace warmer on hand. The PHC staff decided to place the baby in the Embrace warmer and by the time he was ready to be transferred to a hospital,  his temperature had stabilized at 37 ℃ (98.6 ℉).  

The baby was also kept in the Embrace warmer during the transfer so that his temperature could be maintained.  After arriving at the Magadh Medical College and Hospital safely, the baby spent a week in the NICU after which, he was discharged at the weight of 1.7 kg (3.7 lbs).

The Paraiya PHC staff was very happy with the fact that they could save the baby's life by using the Embrace warmer, both in the facility and during transfer. 

With every purchase of a Little Lotus product, a baby in need will be helped by the Embrace warmer.  We're still offering free shipping on all pre-orders (to be shipped mid-September) so come visit us at www.littlelotusbaby.com and check out our new prints!

Introducing Lotus Triangle: Our New Limited Edition Print

Dear Little Lotus Community,

We're excited to introduce our second new summer print: Lotus Triangle.  

The inspiration behind the Lotus Triangle came from one of our favorite pieces of a building block set. Building blocks help babies and kids of all ages learn and grow. Playtime is crucial for a child's development, just as sleep is! 

Also, we're offering free shipping on all pre-orders (products will ship in August).

For every purchase made, we will help save a baby in a developing country with the Embrace baby incubator. 

Happy summer!

#CompaniesGiveLove - Thank you Salesforce!

Dear Little Lotus Community,

We hope you are having a great summer! We wanted to take a moment to tell you about our exciting Corporate Partnership Program. The #CompaniesGiveLove program marries our mission – to give vulnerable babies all over the world a better chance of life – with a growing mission in the corporate world to better support expecting mothers and fathers in the workplace. 

In January, Salesforce joined #CompaniesGiveLove and in doing so, they committed to gifting a beautiful Little Lotus swaddle, sleeping bag or blanket to all expecting mothers or fathers at the company. With each Little Lotus product gifted to an employee, a preterm infant in a developing country will be helped by our award-winning Embrace Infant Warmer, which to date, has helped over 200,000 babies around the world. 

We recently checked in with Abigail Hollingsworth, Head of Global Benefits at Salesforce, to see how the program is going and here's what she had to say:

Why did Salesforce decide the participate in the Corporate Partnership Program with Little Lotus?
Salesforce commemorates the birth of a child by giving new parents a special gift of a Little Lotus Swaddle. We applaud the mission of Embrace Innovations to help provide an accessible, safe, and cost effective solution for preterm babies in developing countries where incubators are often not available.
 
How have employees reacted to the program? What feedback have you received?
We've received a lot of positive feedback from our employees. When we announced a Corporate Partnership Program with Embrace Innovations on our internal network, we received over 400 likes and comments and it continues to grow. Our employees are thrilled that they could receive a special gift that was not only beautiful and functional, but that also makes a positive social impact.
 
What impact have you seen, or do you hope to achieve, for Salesforce through this program?
Seventeen years ago, Salesforce set out to create a new kind of company—with a new technology model, a new business model and a new integrated corporate philanthropy model—the 1-1-1 model. The 1-1-1 model contributes 1% of Salesforce’s equity, employee time and product back into the community. This program aligns to our core value of giving back and we are proud to share in giving back with an organization that is focused on supporting women, children and healthy families.

If you know a company that might be interested in our Corporate Giving Program, we invite you to share this story with them, or contact us at info@littlelotusbaby.com for more details. Together, we hope to help save 1,000,000 babies

Happy 4th of July!

Dear Little Lotus Community,

Summer is in full swing and 4th of July is just ahead!  As you know, Little Lotus products help keep your baby at the perfect temperature, which means the technology helps to both warm and cool your baby to prevent over-heating.  As the summer nights get warmer, we're glad we're helping this little one:

"My son's body is at a higher temperature naturally so buying this sleep sack to try was a must. The fabric cools his body temperature down during sleep times perfectly."  -Bri

To help your baby sleep in this summer heat, and to celebrate the land of the free, we're continuing to offer free shipping on all pre-orders. And as always, your purchase will help a vulnerable baby in a developing country with the Embrace Infant Warmer.  

Hope you have a great 4th of July weekend!

Introducing our new Lotus Flower Print

Dear Little Lotus Community,

We're excited to announce a new summer print: Lotus Flower. Our Lotus Flower print was inspired by the meaning behind our name: 

A lotus is associated with purity, beauty, birth and enlightenment. The lotus flower represents birth; the flower’s first and most literal meaning: rising & blooming to achieve enlightenment.

Our new limited edition print is a perfect stylish gift for any mom and baby! We're still offering free shipping on all pre-orders!  The Lotus Flower print will ship in August.

As always, for every purchase made, we will help save a baby in a developing country with the Embrace baby incubator. We believe enlightenment is when we are able to help others.
