Smitten Bassinet Design

A Portable Bassinet Designed with Your Baby in Mind

From choosing the safest materials made by socially-responsible companies to conducting usability studies with real families, The Smitten Bassinet prioritizes your baby’s safety. Its portable design makes safe sleep convenient and an easy choice for caregivers.

Born from a research collaboration between two of Michigan’s largest universities, the Smitten Bassinet is more than a box. It’s a cutting-edge technology designed by one of the country’s leading child-injury prevention specialists, pediatricians, and packaging experts.

After three years of development, collaboration, and rigorous testing, Smitten is the baby sleeping box that puts infant safety research at the forefront.

Smitten is made in the USA by companies who take care of their employees and improve their communities, so you can feel good about your purchase while keeping your little one safe.

Testing

Backed by Science. Tested for Real Life.

  • Carrying capacity: Average carrying capacity of Smitten averages 99.6 pounds before compromising the bassinet’s integrity
  • Diaper leaks and spills: Before a series of strength tests, we poured 40ml 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, a parent going to get a towel, and cleaning it before placing baby in the box again.
  • Humid conditions: 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 Bassinet to new parents to use in their everyday lives – with siblings, pets, full-time jobs, in-laws, and, well, “real life.”
