In this paper, we investigate the soliton dynamics under slowly varying medium for the BBM equation, that is how the solution of this equation evolve when the time goes. We construct the approximate solution of this equation and prove that the error term due to the approximate solution can be controlled. By using the method of Lyapunov and Weinstein functions, we prove that the approximate solution is stable.
