Seven years ago, Antonio Anderson needed to feed his infant son Christian in front of the television and needed a free hand.
The handsfree baby feeding aid Gabriel Feeding Pad was born.
“We’ve been able to watch the product grow up at the same time as our child,” Anderson said.
The invention has prompted them to learn about patents, prototypes, trade shows and chain store buyers. They’ve been to the Oprah Winfrey Show, Babies “R” Us stores and they hope onto the shelves of the world’s biggest retailer, Wal-Mart.
“When you are working on a product that you really believe in and you’ve used it and you watch the development stages, a lot of people look at you and they think the process has been so quick, said Anderson’s wife, Raquel Lett-Anderson.
The couple has written a book, “Take it to the Market,” to tell their story and help others with the options and issues first-time inventors face, from patent searches to licensing deals to product lineups. They also soon will start seminars based on the information in the book.
“People are calling us and saying they’re just really having difficulty with understanding who to trust,” Lett-Anderson said.
Inventors should arm themselves with information about the inventing process, however, because the rise in people interested in inventing also means more people who may fall prey to scams.
