With each purchase of the Little Lotus products, a baby will be saved by the Embrace Infant Warmer

Little Lotus was founded by Embrace Innovations with a lofty goal: create technologically innovative baby products and in the process, give 1,000,000 babies in the developing world a better chance at life.

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% 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 infant warmer, which regulates the temperature of a baby. Our team has spent the last eight years distributing these around the world. We even lived in India for four of those years, which is home to 40% of all the world’s premature babies.

We have now helped over 200,000 babies, and in the process, our invention has received numerous awards, from the Economist Innovation Award to Fast Company 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 warmers. We realized that by keeping these babies at an ideal temperature, we were also helping them sleep better. So we took the technology we had developed, and created Little Lotus swaddles, sleep sacks and blankets, which also help babies sleep at the perfect temperature.

In a recent study, we found that 80% of babies slept an hour longer a day with our product vs competitive products. And each Little Lotus purchase goes towards saving a life with the Embrace incubator through our 1:1 model. Our next milestone is to help 1 million babies around the world with your help. Just as importantly, we hope to create a global community of parents helping less fortunate parents. Because every baby deserves a chance for life.

The Little Lotus Name

A lotus is associated with purity, beauty, divine birth and enlightenment. The lotus flower represents birth, both in a figurative and a literal sense. The flower’s first and most literal meaning: rising and blooming to achieve enlightenment.
