Little Lotus products use a proprietary fabric which helps balance your baby’s skin temperature. 

Fewer temperature fluctuations mean a more comfortable baby and a more well rested parent.

Embrace Spotlight: Roopa

Dear Little Lotus Community,

I am here today to share the story of Roopa, who gave birth to her baby on November 26th, 2014, on a rickshaw in India.

From a village in southern India, Roopa gave birth to her little one much sooner than expected. It was a late autumn night and by the time she was rushed to the clinic, her baby was already well underway. Weighing just above 5 pounds and severely hypothermic, his body temperature hovered at around 89.6 degrees - almost 10 degrees lower than that of a normal newborn. In Roopa’s eyes, there was confusion and fear, but also a mother’s determination.

With eight minutes to go before the turn of a new day - just hours after he was born on a rickshaw - Roopa’s baby boy was placed in an Embrace infant warmer. His body temperature quickly stabilized in the next 40 minutes and reached a healthy 98.6 degrees. We hope he stays warm and healthy.

Stories like Roopa’s happen every day around the world. Through the Little Lotus 1:1 model, we aim to help thousands of more vulnerable mothers and babies.

Thank you for your support in making this a reality, and giving hope to parents and babies everywhere.

With love,
