A children's bodysuit that warns if the baby has a fever

A little over a year ago, I don't know if you remember, we talked about a British man who had invented pajamas that changed color according to the baby's body temperature. It turns out that now a children's bodysuit is coming out with the same characteristics, and that it also alerts parents that their baby has a fever, depending on the color it acquires. Has anyone had the opportunity to try any? Are they effective?

When a baby has a fever, the symptoms are not always obvious. They are usually calm and sleepy, which can rarely indicate to parents that their little one has a fever. The objective of this new body is precisely to reduce the time that exists between the moment when the baby's body temperature rises and its detection by the parents.

Like the pajamas (called "Babyglow") put on the market previously, the bodysuit incorporates a color sensor that detects, "alerts" and "alerts" parents when the baby has a fever simply by changing the color. In this case, the sensor will be printed with a purple drawing that, when the baby's body temperature reaches 38 degrees, it will turn red in no time.

The difference is that the new children's body was developed by a Spanish company, in collaboration with the Textile Technological Institute (AITEX). This body, a kind of textile thermometer, which contains a pigment that detects the rise in temperature, is located in the area closest to the baby's neck, a place where, according to a study, is the area of ​​the body where it is easier and faster to detects increased temperature in babies.

It is expected that this bodysuit, made of cotton fabric, with natural fiber, which can be washed normally and used repeatedly without altering its properties, will be marketed in regular stores within a few months and that its price will not exceed the 12 euros.

Now it only remains to know if the body, being a piece of clothing that babies wear, especially in cold weather, underneath the clothes, how parents can know if it has changed color or not. I think that should be valued, right?
