What's the difference between a pram, pushchair, stroller and buggy?
Confusingly these names can be used interchangeably. But there are important differences between them:
Prams – Designed for newborns and younger babies who need to lie flat.
Pushchairs – For when your child can sit up. Unlike prams you can adjust the recline of the seat, so they can be sitting or almost lying flat.
Strollers – Strollers and pushchairs are often confused. Strollers tend to be lighter and can be folded up, which makes them easier for taking on public transport. They're recommended for toddlers and younger children.
Buggies – Can mean either a pushchair or a stroller. A bit like Hoover and Biro, it's a case where the name of a certain brand has become used for all similar products.
