years ago Chris Ebejer conceived a way to stop babies from overheating.
Now, proudly, he is delivering his fully-formed creation to the world.
The father of one has signed a 12.5million contract with a manufacturer to take his 'Babyglow babygrows global.
The garments change colour with babys temperature - meaning they can tell parents when their child is getting too hot and help prevent catastrophic illness. 'Mothers are going to find these invaluable, said Mr Ebejer, who lives with wife Jane, 44, and son Aaron, 17, in Long Melford, Suffolk,US. 'Heat is invisible. The suit changes that and makes it visible. 'It communicates to the mother where a baby cant. Overheating can cause a babys brain to shut down and is also an indication of illnesses such as meningitis. Mr Ebejer, who had his idea while watching a documentary about babies, began the search for an ink pigment with heat-sensitive molecules. He spent six years and 700,000 working with scientists to develop-the pigments to embed into cotton babygrows.
The Babyglows come in pink, blue and pastel green, all of which turn white as soon as the babys temperature rises above 37c.
They will be available from October for 20 a pack. The worldwide patent has been bought by manufacturers Quality Workwear 4 U, in Milton Keynes. - Daily Mail
Mr Ebejer has signed sales deals in a number of countries including the U.S. and is negotiating with High Street stores.
He added: 'It has taken over my life but Im very passionate about it. I believe that this is a product that will save lives. - Daily Mail
