A baby bottle is a bottle with a teat (also called a nipple in the US) to drink directly from. It is typically used by infants and young children when a mother does not breastfeed, or if someone cannot (as conveniently) drink from a cup, for feeding oneself or being fed.
Various methods of baby transport have been used across different cultures and periods and for different ages of child. Methods can be divided between wheeled devices including baby carriages (carrycots in British English), strollers (pushchairs), slings, backpacks, baskets, infant car seats and bicycle carriers. The larger and heavier perambulators or prams, which had become popular during the Victorian era, were replaced by lighter and more flexible designs during the latter half of the 1900s.
A bassinet, bassinette, or cradle is a bed specifically for babies from birth to about four months.
A bib is a garment worn hanging from the neck on the chest to protect clothing from spilt food. Bibs are frequently used by children, especially infants, but also by some adults. Bibs are also worn when consuming certain "messy" foods, such as lobster.
Child safety seats (sometimes referred to as an infant safety seat, a child restraint system, a restraining car seat, or ambiguously as car seats) are seats designed specifically to protect children from injury or death during collisions. Car manufacturers may integrate child safety seats directly into their vehicle's design. Most commonly, these seats are purchased and installed by consumers. Many regions require children defined by age, weight, and/or height to use a government-approved child safety seat when riding in a vehicle. Child safety seats provide passive restraints and must be properly used to be effective. However, many child safety restraints in countries such as Canada and the United States are not used properly. To tackle this negative trend, health officials and child safety experts produce child safety videos to teach proper car seat installation to parents and caregivers.
A pacifier (American and Canadian English), dummy (United Kingdom, other Commonwealth countries and Ireland), binky, or soother (in other countries) is a rubber, plastic, or silicone nipple given to an infant or other young child to suck upon. In its standard appearance it has a teat, mouth shield, and handle. The mouth shield and/or the handle is large enough to avoid the danger of the child choking on it or swallowing it.
A travel cot is a bed for use by a baby or young child that collapses or folds into a bag for easy carriage. Travel cots are typically much lighter than a standard cot, with soft sides to provide comfort to the baby when sleeping.
