The baby swaddle with a NASA pedigree @littlelotusbaby #LittleLotusKickstarter #GIVEAWAY

Little Lotus is a revolutionary line of baby products, including a swaddle, sleeping bag and blanket made with a proprietary phase change material that keeps infants at an optimal temperature, both storing and releasing heat as needed to keep baby cozy and comfortable. The swaddle uses a material initially designed for NASA space suits that continually cools and warms to keep babies at the perfect temperature.

The Little Lotus swaddle was inspired by the Embrace Warmer, the low-cost baby warmer responsible for helping 150,000+ preterm babies worldwide.

Three million babies die every year in the first 28 days of life, according to the World Health Organization. Put in starker terms: one baby dies every six minutes. But what’s more shocking? Many of these deaths are preventable.

TED speaker Jane Chen invented the Embrace infant warmer seven years ago in a Stanford University classroom with her classmates, including co-founder Rahul Panicker. Today, it has received the support and attention of both Beyoncé Knowles-Carter and President Obama.

Little Lotus will operate on a Toms Shoes-inspired model: for every US product sold, a baby will be helped by the Embrace warmer in a developing country, so that new parents can keep their babies cozy, and also extend a “warm embrace” to babies all over the world.  The print of the Little Lotus baby products is inspired by the Touch our Future artwork, and features the hand tracings of mothers and babies in developing countries helped by the Embrace infant warmers.

“With this product, we’ll be able to keep babies comfortable in a way that we couldn’t before,” says Chen. “A mother, no matter how impoverished, will do anything to save her child. It is this love that powers our technology, and we’re going to use our supporters’ love to help the most vulnerable babies on Earth.”
