Helps prevent sleeping problems
The BABYBJÖRN Babysitter Balance may help prevent babies from developing sleep problems as a result of becoming dependent on movement to remain sleeping. Since the BABYBJÖRN Babysitter Balance stops moving when the baby stops moving, the baby can soothe him/herself to sleep with motion. Then the motion stops so the child does not become accustomed to having constant motion while sleeping. Some sleep experts suggest that babies may not sleep as well while in motion.
Good support for neck and spine
The BABYBJÖRN Babysitter Balance provides good alignment and ample support of the baby’s neck and spine.
Safe up to 29 pounds
Because of its excellent construction, the BABYBJÖRN Babysitter Balance is safe for use up to 29 pounds, allowing many children to use it up to two years of age.
Stimulates the vestibular system
The motion of the BABYBJÖRN Babysitter Balance stimulates the vestibular system, the fluid-filled canals in the ear that allow us to sense motion and deviations in position. This motion, like being rocked by a parent, is very soothing for babies.
The BABYBJÖRN Babysitter Balance may help sooth colicky babies as the motion is smoother and less mechanical than battery-operated bouncers.
