Thanks, Jo...but what do the terms refer to? "Nappy" is to take a nap, but "cot" or "dummy" got me a bit confused.

Thanks, again, for all your help!!

A nappy is a diaper, dummy is a pacifier, baby grow is a onesie, and I'm assuming that a cot is a crib?
How 'bout pram (for stroller) and baby milk (for formula)?

"Nappy" is a diaper! I don't know for sure if there's any different term for cloth diaper vs. disposable diaper.

I'd guess that a "dummy" is a pacifier. But that's only a guess.

Hi there,

British: Dummy. American: Pacifier.
British: Nappy. American: Diaper.
British: Cot. American: Crib.

By the way, if you google British/American translations, lots of site come up, for example: http://www.accomodata.co.uk/amlish.htm

Another website I just looked up is: http://esl.about.com/library/vocabulary/blbritam.htm - lets you type in words and click to translate

Hope some of this helps you.

Really? Baby grow is a onesie? I would have never figured that one out!


(Off topic: I have the hardest time with wrestling because I always want to call their singlet a onesie. I actually had to go look up the term, because I ALWAYS forget singlet)


Is Nana for grandmother something everyone uses? Because that might be a tough one to put in. In the US there are a million terms for grandma- and I know lots of grandmas who are very picky about them.

Is there a special term for "father" or "grandfather"?

I called my British grandparents Grandma & Granddad. And that is what parents have chosen to be called. I almost think this a family thing not a nationality thing.

um the grandparent thing is personal - my children call their British grandmother Nanny.

Pram is a pram - the baby normally lies down - don't think there is really a US equivalent.
an American stroller is a British pushchair
an American umbrella stroller is a British buggy in my experience.

um the onesie isn't a babygrow - the baby grow is the clothing that has the long legs with the feet in and long sleeves.

Sorry its been a while - I want to say vest for onesie but I don't think that is quite right either.

Absolutely! There are loads of different terms for grandma so I wouldn't take any chances.

I think you have everything. Yes, RiverIsis, the full body suit that a baby wears is either called babygro(w) or a sleepsuit. And yes, the thing you call a onesie, with short sleeves and no legs is a vest.

Can't think of anything else to do with babies... it's been a long time!

And how do you manage in the USA without prams? What do you put a newborn in when you walk around?

We use a stroller!

I'm trying to think too - my sister-in-law is married to an Irishman and lives over there and I think a lot of the terms are the same . . . . I'm just drawing a blank!

While touring Great Britan with my brother and his male friend we met up with a relative in Scotland. She offered her washer to me to do some laundry. How nice.
Anyway, I show up and wash only my clothes, I didn't offer to do the guy's.

She helps my hang the clothes on the line to dry and says "I expected to see more Y fronts" I didn't know why she laughed when I responded "I didn't bring many sweaters" until, she explained mens briefs are called Y fronts!! Here I was thinking V neck sweaters or a pull over.

hahaha

What about a jumper for a sweater?

But the experts tell us that we shouldn't use a stroller/pushchair until the baby can sit up ... that they need to be flat on their backs to stop problems with the spine. Do you think they are sponsored by pram manufacturers?!

Oh yes, a sweater is usually a jumper but some people say sweater. Y fronts are a particular kind of pants. "Pants" is the generic term for underwear, but men can have boxer shorts, trunks, briefs or Y fronts. Y fronts are those horrible old-fashioned ones with the upside-down Y on the front... hence, Y fronts.

Which brings me to... trousers. What you call pants, we call trousers.

I had such a hard time as a kid because I grew up in a British area of Mass and learned different spellings from what they teach here in the south. It is Catalog not Catalogue.... still gets me in trouble in the south...

On the stroller/pram debate....I think that prams are more like what we would refer to as a Baby Buggy. I never used one with my girls and just went to the full size stroller. Many US strollers recline so that the baby can lay down. I often just left the babies in their baby carrier/car seat which snapped into the stroller frame and they were still semi reclined but supported that way.

Most of the nicer strollers convert so the baby can lie down OR sit up. (Many actually have a carrier that snaps into the stroller or into the car seat, so you don't have to move the baby around). An umbrella stroller wouldn't be used until the baby can support themselves- it's not for a newborn.

There don't seem to be "experts" in the US that tell us to keep babies lying down until they can sit on their own- we often have babies sitting supported before they can sit unsupported.


Looks like I was a minute late!

Well just to add to the debate my modern "Silver Cross" pushchair had the pram attachment (mine slept in that at night instead of a moses basket) as well as the reclining seat and I could have had the car seat too... but I used a lot of "shank's pony" and public transport when they were young so didn't really need it.

I don't see so many "bouncy chairs" here in the US though - a very reclined chair that you could put the baby in indoors. - it bounces/rocks a little thus the name.

You may be relieved to know that a high chair is the same

If you think of the old fashioned baby buggies, or carriages, that is probably the closest thing to a British pram.

Yes, a onesie is a vest. The babygrow is a sleeper. Sometimes I see them called "sleep & play".

I attached a picture of the British pram.

That is what they looked like the last time I saw one in use.

And at the Harrod's website, they have ones that look very similar (but are VERY expensive!!!) under "pushchairs & prams"...and they are specifically listed as prams rather than push chairs. Their pushchairs looks exactly like our strollers...some fussier looking than others.

I agree with others that terms for grandparents (and even parents to some extent) is very much a family thing and varies enormously. Grandmother might be Gran, Grandma, Granma, Granny, Nana, Nanny etc. Grandfather might be Grandpa, Granpa, Gramps, Grampy, Grandad, Granda... If the scrapbook is not a surprise then you might want to ask the recipient but if it's a surprise then maybe avoid using anything at all!

Maybe just check out the harrods website? It might give you a good idea. I just used that particular store b/c it's well known as a British department store.

Looks like they call diaper bags "changing bags".
A bottle & teat brush looks just like the basic 'bottle brush' we use here...so I'm guessing they say 'teat' instead of nipple?

The moms I know, and the nursery I worked at last year couldn't live without them!

Do british have a name for a "boppy" pillow?

The "C" shaped pillow breastfeeding moms shouldn't have to go without. (Not to mention they are awesome for supporting babies while bottle feeding, and even better for supporting a baby who is learning to hold their own bottle)

I think a Babygro is an all in one with legs and sleeves, Hmmmm, your US onesie would be called a romper suit in the UK I think. Great name I think!

I've never heard of a boppy pillow - sounds fab though! I'm not entirely reliable though - I've not had children!

Completely OT, but I did hear the word 'bippy' on TV the other night. An American woman said it a couple of times "you bet your sweet bippy!" I was rather taken with it and I intend to use it a lot LOL!

Yes those are pretty much the bouncy chairs!

Um the boppy pillow - I think in the UK there is more of an L shaped pillow because they also suggest using it during the later stages of pregnancy for comfort and support whilst sleeping. (and I think it is just called an L shapped pillow though I could be wrong)
