I was so thrilled to purchase this Nuna Pipa Lite for our first child. As new parents we were still navigating the road of what are ‘must haves’. Unfortunately we learned a valuable (and costly) lesson. This particular model is not FAA compatible without the base. Meaning it will not work if you were planning to also use it for airline travel and/or rental cars, taxis etc. That was a huge bummer when we realized it after already starting to use it, so it was too late to return.
We are now having to buy a second Nuna Pipa that can be used for vacations. Strangely the cheaper non lite model offers that ability plus the other Pipa lite models …just not this one. I would say Nuna missed the mark on this particular model and it begs the question, why the heck would they remove the few simple features needed for travel capability.
In my opinion, this model should come with that disclaimer in bold writing. (I believe I finally saw it somewhere in small print) Otherwise other inexperienced parents like ourselves may totally overlook that and find ourselves having to buy a second one.
Unfortunately that drawback was a HUGE disappointment.
We used this for our first child and are preparing to use it for our second. Safety was highly recommended and it is super lightweight and great for heavier babies! We also bought the uppababy adapters and (before covid) used that feature all the time!
Love the look and feel of this car seat. We chose it because of how light and safe it is and definitely recommend it.
We were debating between this infant car seat and the Uppababy Mesa. Both good quality but this one is significantly lighter and can still click into the Uppababy vista stroller with the attachment. Recommend this purchase!
Is very beautifull , very practic light weight and is confortable for the baby
