Nuna PIPA Lite LX Infant Car Seat and Base

Compatibility Guide


The world's lightest car seat gets luxury finishes with the Nuna PIPA Lite LX. Building on the Nuna PIPA Lite, the PIPA Lite LX adds a magnetic Dream Drape that protects baby from the elements, along with natural merino wool blend fabrics that are more breathable and moisture-wicking than synthetic fabrics.

Despite its 5.7-pound weight, the PIPA Lite LX doesn't skimp on safety. Unlike most car seats made with non-flexible foam, the PIPA Lite LX is made with a first-of-its-kind flexible foam that compresses to absorb forces in a crash. 

The PIPA Lite LX snaps into a steel-reinforced base with a load leg that attaches to the floor of your vehicle for extra stability. According to Nuna, the load leg helps minimize forward rotation during a crash by up to 90 percent. 

Unlike the original Nuna PIPA, the PIPA Lite LX cannot be installed without the base for taxis or travel.

See the differences between Nuna's five infant car seat models in this Nuna PIPA Series comparison. This PIPA Lite LX is the current model.

      Super light weight !

      Love it, sleek design, light weight! Came with extra infant inserts and everything was neatly packaged. Very excited to try it out when our baby boy makes his arrival!

      Very Satisfied!

      After careful research and consideration I finally picked the car seat I wanted for our first baby. I had recently came across Strolleria and only saw really great reviews so I purchased the Nuna Pipa Light LX infant car seat and it was nothing short of a great investment. I am truly satisfied with my purchase especially with the fast service Strolleria provided us with. I will be sharing their site with other parents I know and will be making more purchases for our growing family as well!

      It can only be used in a car WITH the base!!

      The whole reason I purchased the lighter version of the Pipa car seat was for ease of living in NYC. We do not own a car, and I wanted a light car seat/travel system that could allow me to get into a taxi/ride share while out and about. I have now learned that this car seat can only be used with the base :( Although it is a nice, light car seat - DO NOT BUY IF YOU DON'T OWN YOUR OWN CAR.

      Sleek look

      Very lightweight and beautiful color in granite medium/ dark gray. Cant want to have my baby girl in this beautiful car seat. Another plus was the super fast shipping! I ordered on a Saturday night, on Monday it was a holiday and I received my car seat by Wednesday!

      IN LOVE with this car seat - non toxic, comfortable, 5 stars

      I previously thought brands like Nuna and Uppababy were just bougie names all for the sake of spending money because, consumerism ya know? But then I read Brain Health From Birth and learned about the effects of toxic chemicals regularly used on baby products and how it is not closely regulated in the United States. Only a handful of brands are truly non toxic and do not contain flame retardants that we inhale every time we are in the car and it is so close to baby's face. It is so reassuring that I've chosen a great product. OH! And also Nuna car seats have a longer life than other brands so this will definitely get used with subsequent children! Outside of all that, I love how light weight it is and how easy it was to install with the RELX base in my car, while my husband uses this base in his truck. Works great!
