Car Seat Picks

The Nuna PIPA Lite LX

Nuna PIPAliteLX Caviar Angle US web 94e3
  • Designed in Europe and exceeds American safety standards
  • Lightweight Aeroflex foam absorbs and diffuses energy in case of a crash, minimizing the force transferred to your baby
  • Side impact protection and a stability leg that folds down and wedges against the car floor, absorbing collision forces in an accident and stabilizing the baby at all times
  • The steel-reinforced base is easy to install, and a True Lock system with color-coded indicators to let you know when you’ve got all the buckles fastened and locks in place correctly
  • Another callout for the Pipa Lite LX is its high-end fabrics. All the materials used in this seat are flame-resistant but without any added fire retardant chemicals. The fabric is a comfy Merino wool and Tencel lyocell fiber blend—it’s soft, safe, naturally moisture-wicking, and environmentally friendly. The pull-down UPF 50+ canopy creates a shady cocoon for your babe, while the mesh window lets you check in on them.
  • Two downsides are that this infant car seat with its Merino fabric is hand-wash only and a costly option.
