This study investigates the comprehensive problem with the consequences of the smartphones’ implementation in relation between mothers and their infants. Our investigation is based on an online survey, interviews with a focus group and an experiment. With profound knowledge from developmental psychological theories we interpret the consequences of the disruption of mothers’ attentiveness towards their infants. By explaining the influence from boundaryless work, a faster perception of time, addiction to technology and the young generation of digital natives, we are trying to understand these factors’ impact on today’s society in an IT-ethical point of view. This gathering of knowledge is compared to our thesis with the smartphones’ disruption of the intimacy between a mother and her infant child. The project results in a suggested design solution; an ironic, provocative but informative drive including a pamphlet that has been evaluated in our focus group of mothers with infant children. In closing we have summarized and discussed all aspects of the thesis and put it into perspective in broader contexts.
