the term "baby boomers"

it means baby boom.

it is literal.

people had a lot of children in the past generations.

Families had 2-3 children for themselves.

That is what is called a "baby boom"

Families are different.

Not all people/parents want that many kids.

It depends on the couple.

Some couples and families like having large families.

BAby boom is the term for having larger families.
