After simulated spills, daily wear and tear and high-humidity conditions, the average carrying capacity of Smitten averaged 99.6 pounds before the bassinet’s integrity was compromised.
Diaper leaks and spills
Before a series of strength tests, we poured 40 ml of water into the bottom of the box, allowed it to sit for 5 minutes, and wiped it dry. This simulates the average bladder capacity of a 24 week old being released into the box, a parent going to get a towel, and cleaning it before placing baby in the box again.
Before testing, boxes were conditioned high humidity (80% humidity) and the average humidity of an air conditioned house (50% humidity) to simulate use in different environments.
Real homes, with real families
We gave Smitten to new parents to use in their everyday lives. We wanted to learn how it functioned in the wild - with siblings, pets, full-time jobs, in-laws, and, well, “real life”.
