Nuna Bassinet Stand vs. UPPAbaby Bassinet Stand

Nuna Bassinet Stand vs. UPPAbaby Bassinet Stand

Once you become a mama, it becomes clear pretty quickly that your favorite things for babe are the ones that can multitask as well as you can. Okay, maybe not that well, but you get the point. That's why we love the Nuna and UPPAbaby Bassinet Stands. So which one is right for you?

Baby gear that can help you out in different ways, keep you from having to find space for several things, and also help you keep a little money in your bank makes all the difference when you have little ones at home.

Nuna MIXX Stroller and Bassinet Set

Have you ever wished you could take your stroller accessories, like your bassinet, and place them in a secure, stationary place inside of your home? Well, that exists!

Why a Bassinet Stand?

Both Nuna and UPPAbaby make great bassinet stands. So which one is the right one for you? Let's help you make the best decision for your family. Both bassinet stands are going to offer you the ease of taking your babe from the stroller and snapping them into the stand. Both the Nuna and the UPPAbaby stands are great options for traveling, near or far, because they fold up super simply and click open whenever you need it! They both have storage underneath, though Nuna's is more like a stroller storage basket to hold babe's essentials.

Since the stands are pretty much mobile and super lightweight, you can use them in any room of your house! They are also a great option for co-sleeping mamas who don't want to invest in a separate co-sleeper while babe is still sleeping in your room. Another reason these stands are making a mama's dreams come true is that if you have a babe who is falling asleep in the bassinet, you can just pop them into the stand without dealing with the dreaded transfer!

The Nuna MIXX Bassinet Stand

The Nuna MIXX Bassinet Stand is compatible with the Nuna MIXX Bassinet, but something that sets the Nuna Bassinet Stand apart from the UPPAbaby Bassinet Stand is that the Nuna allows you the added benefit of clicking in your babe's PIPA Car Seat into the stand. This makes it a great option for mamas who need something to use as a makeshift highchair or seat for babe when you're traveling, when you have other kiddos taking up real estate at the table, or if you're trying to use the stand when babe is a little older/heavier (considering the bassinet is only safe for babes up to 20 lbs).

Other features we love:

  • Connects to the MIXX series bassinet and MIXX series stroller seat - no adapters needed
  • Folds and unfolds with one hand
  • Ultra-compact design perfect for traveling and storing
  • Large storage basket holds baby essentials
  • Lightweight aluminum design

Nuna MIXX Bassinet Stand

Let us walk you through a few more of the Nuna Bassinet Stand's features in this video:

The UPPAbaby Bassinet Stand

The UPPAbaby Bassinet Stand is simple, secure, and sturdy. It comes in three classic colors and is compatible only with the UPPAbaby Bassinet. (It's not compatible with any other brand of bassinet or car seat, or with the pre-2104 UPPAbaby Bassinet.)

Some features we love about it:

  • Bassinet snaps in easily – just like it does on the stroller!
  • One-step open and close
  • Compact fold and stand storage
  • Convenient tray on bottom

UPPAbaby Bassinet Stand

No matter which bassinet stand you decide works best for your fam, whether you decide to keep with your current car seat/stroller combo, or are starting from scratch on a new travel system for your little babe, you're going to love the versatility and the multitasking design of both the Nuna and the UPPAbaby Bassinet Stands!

Hi Alexis,

The UPPAbaby Bassinet can only be used with UPPAbaby strollers. You’ll need a Nuna bassinet to attach to your Nuna stroller.

I have the UPPAbaby bassinet, but a nuna stroller set. Is it possible to put the bassinet on the stroller?

Hi Emily,

We recommend only using UPPAbaby products on the UPPAbaby stand. Adapters are only meant for joining car seat and stroller, so unfortunately your Nuna bassinet won’t work on the UPPAbaby stand.

I was given a Uppababy stand but have a Nuna bassinet. Would the uppababy-nuna car seat adapters allow me to attach the Nuna bassinet to the uppababy stand?


Hi Elizabeth,

This Nuna Bassinet stand is only compatible with the Mixx Bassinet.
