Wikipedia Meaning and Definition on 'Pushchair'


Baby transport (or child carrier, stroller, perambulator, pram, or baby carrier) consists of devices for transporting and carrying infants. A "child carrier" or "baby carrier" is a device used to carry an infant or small child on the body of an adult. Such on-the-body carriers are designed in various forms such as baby slings, backpack carriers, and soft front or hip carriers, with varying materials and degrees of rigidity, decoration, support and confinement of the child.

A "baby carriage" (in North American English), "pram" (in British English) or "carrycot" is generally used for newborn babies and have the infant lying down facing the pusher.

A "stroller" (North American English) or "push chair" (British English, also sometimes "buggy") has the child (generally up to three years old) in a sitting position, usually facing forwards, instead of facing the pusher.
