Carrycots are secured by both seat belts in the rear seat of the car. Soloflex refers to an exercise machine and the company created in 1978 by Jerry Wilson which makes the machine. Group 0 carrycots hold the baby laying on its back - they are not as safe as the seat as they offer less support to the baby's neck in the event of an accident or sudden braking. Group 0 baby seats or infant carriers keep the baby in a rear facing position and are secured in place by a standard adult seat belt and/or an ISOFix fitting.

Many car seats combine the larger groups 1, 2 and 3. The United Nations standard ECE R44/03 categorised these into 4 groups: 0-3. There are several types of car seat depending on the position of the child and size of the seat. While some manufacturers have started selling ISOFIX-compliant baby car seats there has been a long delay in agreeing the technical specifications and the standard is still yet to become widely used.

In 1990, the International Organization for Standardization FIX (ISOFix) was launched in an attempt to provide a standard for fixing car seats into different makes of car. Car seats have been found to cause severe and fatal injuries to the child when fitted in a seat with airbags. Baby car seats are legally required in many countries to safely transport children up to the age of 2 or more years. Another benefit of a travel system is that the detached chassis when folded will usually be smaller than other types of pushable vehicles.

Thus a travel system can be switched between a pushchair and a pram. Travel systems typically consist of a chassis with a detachable baby seat and/or carrycot. Newer versions can be configured to carry a baby lying down like a low pram and then be reconfigured to carry the child in the forward-facing position. "Buggy" is now the regular term used in the UK; in American English, "buggy" more likely refers to a pram.

"Pushchair" was the popularly used term in the UK between its invention and the early 1980s, when a more compact design known as a "buggy" became the trend, popularised by the conveniently collapsible aluminium framed Maclaren buggy designed and patented by the British aeronautical designer Owen Maclaren in 1965.

One of the longer lived and better known brands in the UK is Silver Cross, first manufactured in Guiseley, near Leeds, in 1877, though this factory has now closed down.

Now prams are very rarely used, being large and expensive when compared with "buggies". In the 1970s, however, the trend was more towards a more basic version, not fully sprung, and with a detachable body known as a "carrycot". As they developed through the years suspension was added, making the ride smoother for both the baby and the person pushing it. Prams have been widely used in the UK since the Victorian era.

They are generally used for newborn babies and have the infant laying down facing the pusher. A baby carriage or baby buggy (in American English), or pram (in Commonwealth English, short for perambulator).
