This product really is wonderful. My LO sleeps in it without getting sweaty and overheated every night. Wish you guys had little mittens to go with NB swaddle. Her tiny hands do get cold and the store bought mittens either never stay on or don't really keep the hand warm.
I love everything about little lotus. The fabric is really resilient. I've washed it probably 6 times already ( my son keeps peeing/pooing on it) and it hasn't frazzled at all. I was expecting the shoulder Velcro to be worn out but so far it's still in good condition. I love that it gives allowance for your child to grow as well. I bought the 0-3 months and compared to the other sleep sacks/ swaddles there's more room for them to grow and definitely see my son in it for maybe more than three months. Little lotus is definitely worth the money and would recommend it to others as well.
We have loved our Lotus swaddle. Our son Asher has always loved to be snuggled up tight so the Lotus was a perfect way to keep him cozy during naps and at night. I love the ease of putting him in, the double zipper for diaper changes, and the adjustable snaps at the shoulders (they grow fast!). I also love the technology behind the temperature control. This gives my husband and I peace of mind with the ever changing Bay Area weather this year. We look forward to transitioning him to the next size shortly. I have also recommended this to my moms group and a few moms have recently purchased them. Overall the feedback has been great.
This swaddle is meticulously designed, they have thought of everything! First of all, baby is always comfy at the right temperature, never hot or cold. The wings are the easiest design for swaddling, I can get her arms out for breastfeeding and get them back in for sleeping without waking her. The shoulder closures are brilliant for when baby falls asleep outside the swaddle and you need to sneak it back on. The zipper at the bottom is great for diaper changes, she's not too exposed and cold as she would be with a vertical zipper running from neck to feet. The fabric is soft and the Velcro is quiet. When the name of the game is don't wake a sleepy baby, no other swaddle works as well as this one. That each one contributes to an infant warmer for a preemie somewhere else in the world is an incredible, heartwarming bonus.
We have primarily been using swaddles at night to help our eight-week old baby girl sleep. We love little lotus for many reasons but primarily because Claire sleeps better in it than the others weve tried. In her little lotus, she now rarely wakes up at night and is already sleeping eight to nine hours straight almost every night. We also love it because of the design. Its ridiculously easy to put on which makes a big difference because she gets exponentially fussier the longer it takes. Overall, it's much more user-friendly than most of the swaddles that we used so far, and we highly recommend little lotus to all our friends with babies!
Warm and cozy
Sleeping bag was fantastic. I unfortunately lost it while shifting.
Super soft and high quality material, cannot be broken out of.
Wonderful product! Helped my baby sleep through the night.
Baby Edwin loves sleeping in his Little Lotus swaddle. He's almost too big for it, but he enjoys it so much we make it work! I had major life threatening complications after his birth and as I am still trying to recover. It can be difficult for me to get out of bed multiple times a night when my firefighter husband is at work and the baby needs help into/out of other swaddles we were given. When he is in his Little Lotus swaddle he stays asleep the entire night! Which means both baby and mommy get a good night's rest. Whether we're at home in chilly weather or braving 80+ degree evenings visiting grandparents in Hawaii, we know he will be comfortable.
As new parents to premature twin boys, we were very concerned about maintaining the proper body temperature and also keeping them secure in their sleeping environment. The Little Lotus Swaddle achieved both of these for us! The swaddles helped the babies maintain their body temperature and keep them warm. The fabric is so soft, especially the unique fabric inside the swaddle! This swaddle is the easiest swaddle to use from the various ones we have tried. It is quick, easy, and quiet to get them in to! I love the easy access to change their diapers with the bottom zipper! The Velcro flaps keeps their arms secure and ensures nothing obstructs their ability to breathe. The babies seem very happy and content in the swaddles and seem to fall asleep quicker and stay asleep longer! A parents dream!! The mission to help other premature babies around the world is close to our hearts, and we are glad to do our part!
These swaddles have been our saving grace. My twins have been sleeping through the night since they were 3 months old. Thank you for creating such a quality product. I'm proud to help support Jane and her team continue their mission.
The Little Lotus swaddle is now my go to swaddle for my newborn. I am on my third baby and this swaddle is the best! Wish I had it for my first two. The zipper design makes diaper changes a cinch, which is a must for middle of the night changes. I love that the fabric is breathable, yet keeps my son warm. It also maintains its shape and does not bunch up or stretch out much, which helps keep his arms in and makes him feel snug longer. Thanks Little Lotus!
It's helped my baby transition from swaddle to sleep sack all while keeping her at a comfortable temperature
We loved our little lotus swaddle for as long as it fit our baby boy, Sam. The quality was fantastic, the fabric had that awesome temperature regulating function, so sam kept comfortable, and it was simple to use. The zipper opening from both ends was my favorite! I've had friends use swaddles with elaborate wraps, only to find their baby with the swaddle wrapped around his/her neck in the middle of the night! So scary. It was a huge comfort knowing that that would never happen with your product.
As a first time mom, I knew that I should be swaddling my baby but I was concerned about her being too warm or too cold, swaddled too tightly or not tightly enough. This product takes all of the guess work out of swaddling. Our baby started sleeping in it when she was about 2 weeks old and has been a great sleeper throughout.
She always seems to be a comfortable temperature, the swaddle kept her feeling secure but still gave her the ability to move her lower half. I couldn't nurse her to sleep as she needed burping post feed but as soon as I lay her down on the swaddle, it acted as a sleep cue and she starts nodding off. She started sleeping through the night at 10 weeks and I think this swaddle played a large part.
It's also the only swaddle that she wasn't able to break out of (until she was ready to be unswaddled) and we have now transitioned to the Little Lotus sleeping bag.
The reasons that I think this product is better than the others we had tried (SwaddleMe, muslins, Halo):
1) Quality and weight of the fabric - the material maintains a comfortable body temperature and is heavier than conventional swaddles, giving the baby an extra sense of security;
2) Zip - allows diaper changes without the removal of the swaddle;
3) Velcro on shoulders - easy to put on/take off;
4) Velcro wings - easy to adjust tightness of the swaddle, comfortable for the baby and does not restrict the hips. Can also swaddle with one arm or both arms out.
We loved the products so much that I have bought these as gifts for all of my pregnant friends.
We bought the little Lotus while expecting our first baby. First of all we found the idea of donating to an portable incubator amazing - that the Little Lotus turned out to be the best baby item we got, we did not know at the time. Our baby is now 12 weeks and we absolutely love the two sleeping bags we got him. We live in Califonia and have some very hot days and cold nights and it feels great knowing that we don't have to worry about him getting too hot or cold! Every expecting couple we know will get one of these from us!
I love waking up to find my little one happy and cosy in her little lotus swaddle! She sleeps so well in it, even now she's 'graduated' to arms-out mode! Knowing the fabric will help keep her at the right temperature while I'm sleeping gives me great peace of mind
The material is amazing, super soft and keeps baby perfect temperature. My only complaint is the loud Velcro.
The fabric has a heavy duty feel to it, very sturdy, but also very soft! Baby has slept wonderfully in it basically every time we've put it to use. Temperature in our house fluctuates throughout the night quite a bit, so it's nice to know this can work for both warming and keeping sufficiently cool!
I purchased two of the Little Lotus wraps for newborns. They were a gift for a grandchild. I've heard that the baby really likes being swaddled with them. I was attracted to your program to get temperature regulating sleep sacks to babies around the world. Thank you for thinking beyond the familiar.
I love how Little Lotus gives back to those in need. So many babies benefit from your generous donation. Not to mention how incredibly soft and comfortable your product is to babies across the world.
The zipper design of the Litle Lotus swaddle made changing diapers for newborn Eva so much easier. As first time parents in San Francisco, my daughter and son-in-law used the Little Lotus swaddle constantly. I felt good about my contribution to Embrace and giving my new grandchild a really well designed and useful garment.
We received our Little Lotus swaddle and we love it! It's definitely the best swaddle I've used! Liam doesn't sleep through the night but he sleeps much better and when I take him out of the swaddle he is not sweating or too cold - it's great.
The Little Lotus swaddle has been our go-to garment for sleep. It's like having a little bubble of balmy 72-degree weather wrapped around our baby when she sleeps! It's been so successful in promoting peaceful sleep patterns that we don't know what we would have done without it. And the great work that Little Lotus does with children in need just really completes the package. A responsible company with great products doing great deeds—what more could anyone ask for? Thank you for all of it.
Lotus swaddle work great. Baby Ellis and his parents are relived with the ease of use. Unlike other swaddles which require tons of steps to get to the right fit, Lotus does it all in three steps with easy velcro system. We cannot be more pleased with the purchase of our Louts. We will be recommending your product to many of our soon to be parents.friends. Thank you for Little Lotus for such innovating idea and helping new parents as we go through baby care and learning.
