Little Lotus baby products, founded by Jane Chen of Embrace Innovations, makes innovative swaddles and sleeping bags with a social cause. For every swaddle you purchase, Embrace Innovations helps put a vulnerable baby from a developing country into an Embrace Infant Warmer. Watch the video below, it’s truly amazing!!
You see, when infants are born prematurely or underweight, they lack the ability to regulate their own temperature. In developed countries, these babies are typically placed in an incubator. But in developing countries, incubators often aren’t available.
The Embrace Infant Warmer doesn’t require constant electricity and is portable, reusable, and cheaper than traditional incubators. It‘s also a safe and reliable alternative.
Why we love these swaddles
Little Lotus baby products use a proprietary fabric, originally developed for NASA spacesuits, to keep your baby at the ideal temperature and resting comfortably. The technology works by drawing away excess heat if your baby starts to get too warm, then releasing it if he starts to cool down.
Embrace Innovations was started by Stanford students working on a class project. Their challenge was to come up with an incubator that costs less than 1% of what a traditional incubator costs. After extensive research, the Infant Warmer was developed.
But the students didn’t stop there; they made it their goal to offer well-designed baby products, and in the process, give 1,000,000 premature and underweight babies in the developing world a better chance at life.
The art design on the swaddle and sleeping bag fabric is made from traces of ACTUAL mothers’ and babies’ hands who have been helped by the Embrace Infant Warmers.
