I have a pram but it is big and heavy so I want a stroller. The lightness and easiness is very appealing!

I thought they were the same thing and it was just us US people that called them strollers so what is the difference?

Not 100% sure but for a stroller to qualify as a stroller it needs to be lightweight and compact. My pram is very heavy and big.

I like both.
Pram advantages: better when they're babies, as has the capsule/ bassinet bit. Bigger basket for shopping. Doesn't tip if you have bags hanging off the handle and no kid on board. Better for walks on muddy tracks/ rough terrain. Can move seat into different positions. Seat facing me and higher up than a stroller seat.
Pram disadvantages: bigger, and comes in 2 parts. Heavier.
Stroller advantages: very light, all 1 piece, so easy for travel/ throwing in and out of car. Smaller for shopping centres.
Stroller disadvantages: can't have seat facing me. Seat is lower down. Can't change seat position much. Can't have a little baby in it. Basket much smaller. Worst part - tips when you have bags hanging on it and no kid in stroller, which is really irritating when doing lots of shopping and you have a kid that gets in and out.
So I use them for different things...

I use a pram for walking in the morning/afternoon. The stroller stays in my car for if DS falls asleep on the way to somewhere.
