BABYBJÖRN Babysitter is a practical aid that allows your child to move and rock himself in a safe and comfortable position. When the child rocks himself in the babysitter, he is developing his motor skills and balance. Self-rocking also has a soothing and sometimes comforting effect on the child. Thanks to the seat, that molds to baby’s body, and the soft fabric, the babysitter properly supports the child’s back.
The babysitter is an excellent aid at home, when you need to perform other tasks while staying in close contact with your child. If the child gets tired of sitting in the babysitter and begins to cry, you should lift him or her up. It’s also important to remember that small children always benefit from changing positions and from when you play and communicate with them. The child should alternate between being in the babysitter and on the floor: on his tummy, sitting, crawling etc.
