Happy 4th of July!

Happy 4th of July - Baby in Little Lotus Mint Swaddle

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!

All about a #LittleLotusDad

Jarrod and his family


Dear Little Lotus Community,

Father's Day is around the corner and we checked in with one of our Little Lotus Dads, Jarrod from Portland, OR, to see what he's up to for Father's Day this year.  He also gave us his dad-tested tips and tricks on getting his 10 month old to sleep.  Thanks Jarrod for sharing!

Besides being an awesome dad, what do you do for a living?
Haha, I actually run a motion graphic design studio called Crazy Awesome. It technically won't launch until next year but a group of us are doing some exciting jobs at the moment. Currently, the studio is run out of my house in the office/den, so I can still help out my wife during the day when she needs help with Gryphon. 

What is your favorite part about being a dad?
Even though I'm home during the day, I'm still working and in a focused go mode. Since the studio is new, I'm in go mode for about 12 hours of the day from 8am to 8pm and when I see my boy and pick him up, I'm reminded how important it is to be in the moment with him and my family. I love the fact that this little child needs me. There's something about being part of a unit that makes me feel like I have purpose and at the end of the day, nothing matters except enjoying life with the ones you love. Plus, he's growing so fast, its fun to see him develop looks and a personality. Can't wait to see what he gets into next. 

What are some dad tested ways to help your baby sleep?
I'm still new to it but we are all about the no cry method. Our boy isn't really a cuddle baby but when he's tired the only thing that works, as of 10 months out, is holding him and singing a little song while bouncing him side to side. Sounds pretty specific because it is. Haha. He's teething so its hard to get him comfortable. 

What do you like to do when the kids are napping?
Well, I'm not gonna lie, if my wife is around, I tackle her first. Haha. We don't get much alone time. At night, when Gryphon is sleeping, we like to watch movies. 

How did you hear about Little Lotus?
I was asked to help with their Kickstarter campaign. Since I do motion graphic design, I was asked to help with some of the explanation videos for the product.

Why do you support Little Lotus?
While doing the videos, I had to learn everything about the product in order to convey the message to viewers. I'm more interested in the material. Sometimes, it's hard to regulate the temperature in our house at night and since using the product, our lil Gryph has slept cozy, at the right temperature, every night. 

Last but not least, anything big plans for Father's Day?
After beginning the process of starting a company while also moving into our first home and taking care of a teething 10 month old, all in the last two months, I think I'll just stop and sit down for a while. Haha.

Jarrod and his family


If you have any father/child photos or dad-tested sleep tips you would like to share for Father's Day, post it on Facebook or Instagram with #LittleLotusDad. 

Also, we're still offering free shipping on all pre-orders!

A Tale of Little Lotus Twins

Stephanie and her family

Dear Little Lotus Community,

Helping preemies is core to the Little Lotus mission, and our 1:1 model of giving. Many twins are born as preemies, and we wanted to share with you the story of one of our Little Lotus supporters and her twins! Thank you Stephanie for sharing your story!

Can you tell us a little bit about yourself and your twins?
Todd and I met online on July 4, 2013, and there was an instant connection! It took us 2 weeks to finally meet in person, but by that point, we were already talking every day, and the love connection was made!  We knew from the beginning we wanted to expand our family.  Once we married in August 2014, we started the journey to expand our family right away. In April 2015, we were shocked, amazed, excited, scared and blessed to learn we were pregnant with twins!  As expecting parents of multiples, you try to prepare adequately and envision how you will make it all work with 2 infants at the same time… there is truly no way to know how you will do it all with 2 babies.. and our 7 year old son Landon as well!!  It’s a hard job but the best job of my life, and I have been blessed to share this journey with Todd and Landon.  

What was it like to give birth to preemies? What were some of your biggest concerns?
It was very scary to go into labor at 34 weeks, 6 days.  When my water broke, I knew the babies would spend some time in the NICU, and a stint in the NICU was exactly what we were hoping to avoid.  I felt totally secure and comfortable that the babies and I were in wonderful hands with the medical staff at the hospital, but it is so hard to not have your babies with you from minute 1… and to see them wheeled off to the NICU with their future unknown.  Our biggest concern was their health and survival… and when they could come home!

What have been some of your biggest revelations about yourself or about life as a new mom?
As a mom of a 7 year old boy and now twin boys, my biggest revelation is that your heart makes room for all of your children and our ability to love our children is infinite! I’ve also learned that as a mom of 3 at 40 years old, I need more sleep than I did when I became a mom for the first time at 32!  I’ve learned again what I learned when I had my first son - that you will do anything for the health, safety and success of your children!

Why do you support the Little Lotus mission?
The mission is important to me as every baby deserves the same chance for survival and love, so any way I can help from my small world in Keller, Texas, I love to do so!

What do you like most about the product?
Our babies sleep the best – hands down- in the Little Lotus swaddles and have from the first day we used them!  The babies are so comforted by the swaddles and settle down nearly immediately they have them on.  The swaddles are so soft and keep the babies at just the right temperature!  They are amazing!

 The new edition of Little Lotus products will ship in August. We're offering free shipping on all pre-orders!
