Nuna Nuna Pipa Lite Infant Car Seat 2017/2018

About the Nuna Pipa Lite Infant Car Seat 2017/2018

We've always sung the Nuna Pipa's praises, but now we're about to lose our voices. Introducing the Nuna Pipa Lite Infant Car Seat! It weighs just 5.3lbs, and that'll definitely save the sore backs and biceps of busy parents around the country. The lightest infant car seat in the world, the Lite has shed 2.6 pounds from the Pipa while remaining incredibly safe (and even adding extra safety while they were at it). Here's what makes the Lite so revolutionary:

 

  • State-of-the-art Shell: Nuna employs its Aeroflex Fusion manufacturing process to craft this first-of-its-kind Pipa Lite shell. Typical car seats utilize non-flexible EPS foam. EPP foam is revolutionarily fused with plastic to make the Lite flexible, lightweight, and as safe as possible. Why is flexible better? In the event of a crash, flexible foam will compress to absorb the energy of the impact.
  • Pipa Series Base: It’s got the safe and simple rigid LATCH installation you’d expect from a Pipa. It still has a load leg as well, helping minimize forward rotation during impact up to 90%. The Lite can only be installed with a base, though. So this seat is perfect for families with a car, as you won’t be able to do a baseless installation in a taxi.
  • Memory Foam Headrest: The Pipa Lite's TailorTech memory foam headrest is luxurious, comfy, and shock-absorbing. It cradles your baby when they’re tiny and is removable for when they grow.
  • Chemical-free: While the Pipa has no added flame retardants to any part that touches the baby, the Pipa Lite has no added flame retardants whatsoever! 

 

Other Pipa Lite 2017 features include:

  • UPF 50+ canopy
  • 5-point harness
  • Side impact protection
  • Leather-look carry handle

 

Included extras:

  • Additional GOTS certified organic cotton fabric and dye insert, harness covers, and crotch cover

 

The Nuna Pipa Lite Infant Car Seat 2017/2018 holds babies rear-facing from 4-32lbs in weight and up to 32in in height.

Pros:

So light, fits stroller perfectly, easiest ever to get out of the car, love the neutral colors, Nuna makes the best!

Cons:

I only wish I had it for my older kids when they were babies!

I have 10 kids and I got this car seat for my 10th. It is by far the best car seat ever! It comes out of the holder with complete ease! It is so very light and looks amazing. It fits the stroller perfectly. I only wish I had this for all 10! Best seat ever!

An obvious choice!

Pros:

Lightweight, customizable, baby loves it!

Totally in love with the Nuna Pipa Lite, we could not be more pleased with it! We had trouble with our second little one settling into our old travel system infant carrier, so when we heard about the Pipa Lite we had to try it. LO fell asleep almost instantly at the start of our drive instead of screaming/crying the whole way! Life saver right there. Added perks: it really is lighter!, the sunshade, and extra infant insert seat cushions. My babies are notoriously in the 90th percentile, so to have a seat that doesn’t add to the weight and bulk is bonus indeed. I also really like the sunshade. It’s flexible and breathable and gives enough coverage to protect his face even in the car! Finally, our stroller did not come with infant cushioning eventhou it does recline fully to support strolling with an infant. We used the second organic cotton infant support padding in our stroller - win win! The installation was our only hesitation, but it really was more intuitive than you might really think. We have the Nuna Leaf and the Nuna Sena and have been nothing but thrilled with the quality and ease of use in our everyday life that adding the Nuna Pipa Lite was an obvious choice for my family... only wish we had had it sooner!

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

Love the PIPA lite car seat!

Pros:

lightweight, easy to clean, easy to use

Cons:

hard to click into the Mixx stroller

I am loving the PIPA carseat! I just had my second baby and was using my old carseat from baby #1 at first, which I thought was perfectly fine. I was wrong!! Life is so much easier with the PIPA, especially because its so much lighter! I had back and shoulder pain from lugging around the baby in the old car seat, and didn't realize how much better it is with a lighter seat - it makes a huge difference. I love how it comes with 2 sets of pads so you have a back up for diaper blow outs in the car. My daughter looks so cozy in there, especially since she looked much more unconformable in the old one. The safety ratings and features are awesome, and it was very easy to set up in the car. Also it doesn't hurt that the PIPA lite is just so pretty and stylish! We are very happy with this one. The only thing I am having trouble with is clicking it in the MIXX stroller, that was much easier with my previous travel system. Do yourselves and your back a favor by getting this super awesome car seat!!

Stylish and Functional

Pros:
<p>Lightweight, stylish, great safety rating, comfortable, well madep>
Cons:
<p>Must install with a basep>
<p>Nuna has done it again with their new PipaLite car seat! As someone who loves fashion, I was in the market for an infant car seat that was sleek and fit my personal style. I originally bought the Pipa for my newborn son because of the modern look and the light weight. I love everything about my Pipa but it is not the easiest to carry around. I now also have the PipaLite, and I can definitely tell the difference in weight (more than 2lbs of weight goes a long way!). p> <p>&#xA0;p> <p>The design of the PipaLite is sleek, modern, and extremely functional. The fire resistant fabric not only looks beautiful, but it also is super comfortable and breathable for my son. Best of all... it's very easy to clean (we all know how important that is!). The infant inserts provide the head and body support my newborn son needs but easily can be removed as my son grows. I also have the option to change out the inserts for the organic material if I prefer that design or if I need to wash the other insert. The PipaLite model does not have the DreamDrape like the Pipa so that it can be lighter. I do not find this to be an issue because I tend to use a MilkSnob car seat/nursing cover over the DreamDrape most of the time.p> <p>&#xA0;p> <p>My PipaLite is so easy to move from my car seat to my Tavo stroller. The car base installation takes only seconds and the stroller does not require any adapters to clip in. I feel like I can truly have it all with this car seat, especially because I don't have to compromise safety for design! p> <p>&#xA0;p> <p>The only thing to consider is the fact that the PipaLite must be installed with the base unlike the original Pipa that can be used with a seatbelt. This can become challenging when traveling on an airplane and taking cabs/uber. However, if you are not planning to travel often and don't mind bringing your base with you, it is not a problem. p> <p>&#xA0;p> <p>I highly recommend this car seat along with all my Nuna products including the Tavo stroller and Nuna Leaf Curve. I can't wait to transition to the Nuna Rava when my son gets older!p>
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

Phenomenally Awesome Car Seat

Pros:
<p>Lightweight, Easy to install, sturdy, beautiful, well madep>
Cons:
<p>Has to be used with car seat basep>
<p>The Pipa Lite is an incredible car seat! I own both the Pipa and Pipa Lite and the weight difference is REALLY noticeable. Ever since I became a parent, I feel like I'm lugging around 10 times the amount of stuff as I did before, so the lightness of the Pipa Light is great when you are wrangling a child, diaper bag, and everything else. p> <p>&#xA0;p> <p>Despite the Pipa Lite's lightness, it still feels like a very well-made, sturdy, and safe car seat. The car seat base is super easy to install and basically foolproof. I appreciate the extra protection offered by the load leg. The car seat clips in and out of the base very easily. Overall, the design of the seat and the base is extremely intuitive.p> <p>&#xA0;p> <p>I really appreciate how beautifully designed the Pipa Lite is. The canopy and seat fabrics are lovely, and it's awesome that they are free of flame retardants. It's also really great that Nuna includes an extra insert made out of organic cotton.p> <p>&#xA0;p> <p>In my opinion, there are only two downsides to the Pipa Lite, neither of which would have detracted me from getting this car seat. First, it's too bad that the Pipa Lite doesn't have the Dream Drape that's featured on the Pipa. However, the Pipa Lite's flip-out eyeshade still offers a substantial amount of coverage, so it's not that big of a deal. And honestly, the weight difference between the two models more than makes up for the lack of Dream Drape. Secondly, the Pipa Lite can only be used with the car seat base. This is not a dealbreaker for me since I either drive, walk, or take public transportation everywhere. If you took cabs or wanted to travel with the Pipa Lite, this might be a bigger issue. p> <p>&#xA0;p> <p>Overall, I think this is a great car seat! I'd recommend it to anyone!p>

Eli reviews the brand new Nuna Pipa Lite Infant Car Seat! You heard him right, it weighs just 5.3 pounds. In this video, Eli shows you these key features:

 

Steel-reinforced base: The Nuna Pipa Lite comes with the Pipa Series base featuring a Load Leg for extra protection.

 

Revolutionary Shell: The Pipa Lite's shell is lined with EPP foam as opposed to typical EPS foam in most infant car seats. Eli shows you why this flexible foam is best!

 

Safe for baby: There are no flame retardants added anywhere on the Nuna Pipa Lite.

 

Tailor Tech headrest: Baby will sleep comfortably on shock-absorbing memory foam.

 

Eli also shows you some of the extras included in the box!

Nuna Pipa vs Nuna Pipa Lite | Infant Car Seats | Comparison

In this video, Eli compares the Nuna Pipa to the Nuna Pipa Lite Infant Car Seat! Both are available from Magic Beans with free shipping.

 

Here's a quick overview:

Both the Nuna Pipa and the Pipa Lite use the same steel-reinforced base. It features Isofix rigid latch for easy installation and a load leg for extra protection in a collision. But the biggest different between the two is that the Pipa Lite cannot be installed without a base! This will likely not affect families using the base in their car daily. But city families that use taxis often will not be able to install the Lite with the seat belt. The Nuna Pipa is the better option for city families!

 

The Nuna Pipa Lite is the lightest car seat in the USA, weighing just 5.3 pounds! To make such a light and tough seat, Nuna used brand new technology in its manufacturing process. Flexible EPP foam lines the plastic shell. While the Pipa has no flame retardants added anywhere that touches the baby, the Pipa Lite has no flame retardants added whatsoever! This means a completely chemical-free seat.

 

If the Nuna Pipa is more your style, you're still carrying light. It features a Dream Drape for complete coverage and privacy, while the Pipa Lite features an extendable canopy. Parents also love the peekaboo window on the Pipa. And, again, the Pipa can be installed with a seat belt while the Pipa Lite cannot.
