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.

Stylish and Functional

<p>Lightweight, stylish, great safety rating, comfortable, well madep>
<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

<p>Lightweight, Easy to install, sturdy, beautiful, well madep>
<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>

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.
