What Is The Difference Between A Pram, Pushchair And A Buggy?
It isn't easy being a new parent and coming to terms with everything that you need. If you're getting a little confused about the difference between a pram, a pushchair, and a buggy, then check out our definitions.
A pram is designed for newborns and babies up to 6 months old. A pram is usually flat, which is why it is great for younger babies who can't sit up yet.
Prams usually have a sturdier frame and higher sides than a pushchair. Prams are often parent-facing, so you can keep track of your little one as they sleep.
A pushchair is usually for older babies and toddlers, i.e. over 6 months old. Pushchairs are often forward-facing and allow your baby to sit up. Pushchairs are also referred to as strollers and are 10kg upwards in weight.
Pushchairs have a lighter frame and can usually be collapsed and folded up. Some pushchairs might state that they're suitable from birth, this means that the pushchair can be changed so that your baby can lie flat.
Buggies are often cheaper and lighter, they usually weigh less than 5kg. A buggy refers to a lightweight collapsible frame which is great on-the-go needs but shouldn't be used as an everyday option.
