What's the difference between prams, pushchairs, strollers and buggies?
In simple terms: prams are designed for newborns; pushchairs are for babies who can sit up; strollers are for toddlers or older children and buggies are generally either pushchairs or strollers (the word is just a colloquial term rather than being something different).
