What do you call a pushchair?

I am from the UK and was just wondering if you used these words to describe your pushchair or not:

pram, buggy, stroller...

I was wondering if we called these things differently. Would really appreciate feedback on what you use, haven't heard of and what you dont use. Thanks.

  • I use stroller. I find it odd when someone calls is a buggy. I also think its odd when people call shopping carts "buggys".

  • A stroller if they sit upright, or a carriage if they lie flat (like the one in the picture).
