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.

      Beautifully made

      First I have to say I have not had my baby yet so I have yet to see her in it. But I'm comfortable saying it's going to be a dream car seat.
      The infant inserts are unlike any I've ever seen. Innovative beautifully made and excellent materials. If you dont think what your baby is laying on matters, educate yourself. While your at it, look at every ingredient of EVERY product used on and in your baby. Most things approved by dear ol govie are jaw dropping.
      This carseat is expensive, we arent high rollers over here BUT it has some pluses that are in my opinion not optional when available.
      The way the base is so easily installed makes it extra safe. The absorbent foam that I hope is never tested in an accident is in the top of its class. The light weight seat is really good for a postpartum mum.
      Overall incredibly happy with our purchase, we do not regret it one iota.

      Terrible design, infant hates it

      Son looks slumped and squished. I have talked to customer service twice. It is awkward to put my son into it. And he hated it immediately. The straps tighten uneven and often put pressure on his shoulders before they are tight enough over his chest to pass the pinch test. And I read the manual so many times to figure out if I was doing something wrong. customer service told me to take out the padding (head and body support pillows) as soon as he was over 11 lbs. but without the gray head support pillow/ insert there’s no head support at all and his neck flops to the side as soon as falls asleep. He’s 3 months old and supposed to ride in a $400 car seat with no head rest!!! This is unbelievable.
