Mother and baby in Embrace incubator

With every Little Lotus product you purchase, we will donate proceeds to save a baby in the developing world with the Embrace incubator.

Our Story

The history of Little Lotus goes back to 2008, where a team of graduate students at Stanford University set out to make a difference in the world. We were challenged to develop an incubator that costs less than 1% of the cost of a traditional incubator to help the 15 million preterm and underweight babies born every year.

After intense research and development, we created the Embrace Incubator (aka Embrace Infant Warmer), which regulates the temperature of a baby. Our team has spent the last eight years distributing these around the world.

We have now helped over 300,000 babies in 22 countries, and in the process, our invention has received numerous awards, from the Economist Innovation Award to Fast Company's Design Award. We were honored to present our work to President Obama at the White House, and in 2014, Beyonce made a contribution to get our product to 9 countries across sub Saharan Africa.

The Birth of Little Lotus

Over the years, we often heard how babies slept so soundly in the Embrace Incubator. We realized that by keeping these babies at an ideal temperature, we were also helping them sleep better. So we leveraged the technology we had developed, and created Little Lotus swaddles, sleeping bags and blankets, which also help babies sleep at the perfect temperature.

In a recent study, we found that 80% of babies slept almost an hour longer a day with our product vs. competitive products. And with each Little Lotus purchase, we donate proceeds to ensure vulnerable babies in the developing world have access to the Embrace Incubator. We're on a mission to save 1 million babies around the world. We hope you'll purchase a Little Lotus product and join the community of parents helping us achieve this lofty goal.
