So did you see The Apprentice last night? I gotta say i watch every series and i’m sure they get dafter ever year! Although they are well entertaining, personally i think Melissa’s time was up and it was a bit of a no brainer for Lord Sugar, but she defo gave us some entertaining times when she was there, especially with all thosae crazy words she used!
So the programme showcased a new baby grow that changed colour when your babies temperature rose beyond a certain point, i’ve done a bit of searching and the product is called bay grow and is available for purchase here,
WHY BABYGLOW? TEMPERATURES AND BABIES
The human average body temperature varies from 36.5 to 37.5. It is regulated by a well balanced and intelligent system that our bodies operate continuously.
Babies however cannot regulate their body temperature independently until after they are about 24 months old.
This causes them to frequently develop a fever, which means that their body temperature rises. These fevers are often due to viral infections that will come and go again, but occasionally a fever can be a sign of a more serious illness.
Why and how does the body develop a fever?
When the body detects infection or something it cannot identify, such as a virus, it produces a reaction affecting the heat-regulating centre of the brain called the hypothalamus. Several reactions in the body then purposely increase the body temperature to higher levels in an attempt to kill the infection. This is why in the case of illness the body raises its temperature. As fever can also become dangerous itself, the general consensus in the medical world is to attempt to lower the temperature back to normal levels.
BABYGLOW products are designed to start changing colour when the temperature of the body rises over 37°C and they are fully functional (white in area’s that touch the baby) when the temperature reaches 38.5°C, which is where fever can become dangerous to the child.
This unique functionality will help parents to see signs of fever or overheating immediately, even before the child becomes noticeably ill.
