BabyBjörn Bouncer Balance Soft - Review

Best-selling bouncer

The BabyBjörn Bouncer Balance Soft is a  bestselling bouncer and a must-have in your baby-gear.

It’s a great place for your child to chill in intermittently through the day.

Ergonomic design

The bouncer’s ergonomic design is based on the invaluable input of leading pediatricians, child psychologists and midwives.

The BabyBjörn Bouncer Balance Soft guarantees the proper head, back and neck support for your baby.

Molds to baby's shape

The seat’s fabric is not flat but rather hammock style that molds itself to your baby’s head and body and evenly distributes their weight.

This support is particularly important because your child’s bones and muscles are not yet fully developed at that stage.

Bounces to child's moves

Your baby can kick their legs and wiggle around with greater ease than in more restrictive devices.

Their movement will bounce the chair. Besides, this natural bouncing will help develop their balance and motor skills.

Younger babies can be gently calmed by carefully bouncing the chair with your hands or feet.

Promotes baby's movement

This chair promotes the baby to move, wearing off some energy, in order to bounce as they love bouncing.

This is a major advantage.

No batteries nor plugs

Since it’s not an automated mechanism, no batteries, charging or plugs are required.

If you want your baby to take a nap in the BabyBjörn Bouncer Balance Soft,

you can bounce it yourself and

rock them to sleep.

Four positions

The BabyBjörn Bouncer Balance Soft has four positions:

  1. play/eat/drink mode,

  2. rest mode,

  3. nap mode,

  4. transport mode.

The mechanism easily transitions from the highest play/eat/drink position to the lower rest position, the lowest nap and to the transport position.

Adjust position to baby's mood

You can adjust the chair’s position to your baby’s mood.

Upright position

The most upright angle is great when your baby is active and alert or when they eat and drink.

The chair does bounce quite easily to their movements which might make feeding more challenging.

You may want to put one of your laps or the sofa or anything against the back of the bouncer to resolve this issue.

It’s perfect for feeding when the baby cannot sit upright alone yet, before its ready to use a high chair.

It's the perfect ‘rest and digest’ position after the baby has been nursed.

If your baby cannot hold up their head by themselves yet, the bouncer’s upright position is great for them to watch the scenery around them and remain interested.

Middle position

The middle position is convenient if they just want to relax and rest.

Lowest position

In its lowest position, the bouncer is not fully reclined, but still enough to be a very comfy, cozy place for your baby to take a nap.


The manufacturer’s instructions mention to always keep an eye on your baby when it’s in the bouncer.

Please be aware also that the BabyBjörn Bouncer Balance Soft cannot be mounted as a crib because of the supportive leg that you cannot disassemble.

Besides, it would be unsafe to use it as an alternative to a crib.

Easy storage

The BabyBjörn Bouncer Balance Soft folds completely flat for easy storage. 

Even if you cannot disassemble it, it folds down to a minimal size.

You can store it under your bed or sofa or in any small place.


The BabyBjörn Bouncer Balance Soft is extremely light weight.

It weighs less than 5 lbs!

Easy to carry

You can move the BabyBjörn Bouncer Balance Soft easily from room to room.

Please beware that it’s unsafe to carry it from one place to another with your baby in it!

First place the chair where you want it to be, then put your baby in it safely.

Get stuff done with baby nearby

While your baby is near you in the BabyBjörn Bouncer Balance Soft, you can get your stuff done.

You can rock the bouncer with one foot and have two hands free to eat dinner or work on your laptop.

On the go

You can take the BabyBjörn Bouncer Balance Soft to parks or restaurants and you won’t have to worry about a fussy, bored or tired baby.

It’s awesome for traveling and on the go!

Bouncer and chair in one

The BabyBjörn  Bouncer Balance Soft is a baby bouncer and a chair in one

so it can be used over a long period of time.

you can flip the fabric around and transform the bouncer into a comfy chair.
