Do I choose the Nuna Pipa Lite or Lite LX?

Do I choose the Nuna Pipa Lite or Lite LX?

Any mama who has carried around a babe in a car seat for any amount of time knows the arm numbing pain right in the crook of your arm. There is no fun way to lug around the seat with your bundle of joy in there.

If only there was a car seat that didn't already weigh 10 pounds without babe inside.

Oh wait... there IS! And just to make your life that much better, Nuna has given you TWO great options: The Nuna Pipa Lite and the Pipa Lite LX are a mama's dream, because they weigh in at just over 5 pounds. That is lighter than your average bag full of groceries!

And not only are these seats great for toting around your little, but both are packed with safety, comfort, and convenience features that will make you swoon. The Pipa Lite is the lightest car seat on the market, and there are a couple of features that make it a parent favorite:

Quick Install

The Pipa Lite features a 5-second base install with Rigid LATCH, which decreases the chance of the seat twisting or movement in the event of a crash. The base also features indicators to make sure that you've installed it correctly, so there's no guesswork involved!

Stability Leg

To make this an even safer car seat, Nuna included a stability leg that sits along the front of the seat and rests on the floor to minimize forward movement that contributes to the majority of neck and head injuries.

Chemical-Free Flame Retardant

While most companies use chemicals to make their car seat fabrics resistant to flame, Nuna designed the Pipa Lite to be flame retardant without the use of chemicals, so your babe is kept safe and comfortable without any additional chemicals.

Infant Inserts

Sometimes our babes grow quicker on the top half than the bottom, and vice versa, so it can be hard to make the car seat fit perfectly when they're infants. Luckily, the Nuna Pipa Lite has separate head and body inserts for newborns, and memory foam infant inserts for added side-impact protection. If you're looking for a seat with a couple extra comfort features for your babe, then the Nuna Pipa Lite LX is the perfect option! It has all the same great features as the Pipa Lite, but with a couple of upgrades:

 

Fabric

For some added luxe and a little more comfort for your little one, the Nuna Pipa Lite LX is a merino wool TENCEL lyocell fiber blend that is breathable, and extra soft!

 

Dream Drape

Something that was included in the original Nuna Pipa, but was missed with the Pipa Lite is the addition of the Dream Drape that removes any need for a car seat cover or extended canopy. The Dream Drape covers the entire opening of the Pipa Lite LX, and has a magnetic closure so that when your little one needs to take a nap, or you're trying to keep the sun out of his/her eyes, you won't be dealing with annoying snaps or velcro.

 

When you are looking for a high-end car seat for your babe and want a seat you can use from day one that is easy to install, light to carry around, and stacked with safety features, the Nuna Pipa Lite or the Nuna Pipa Lite LX are going to be convenient for you and comfortable for your babe, and perfect for anywhere you're headed!
