It’s pretty and portable, pert and purposeful – it’s Pipa! The innovative infant car seat from Dutch company Nuna is one of the lightest seats we’ve found. It’s also easy to install, loaded with safety features, and has the fantastic “Dream Drape” to protect baby from the sun and the elements. New this year Nuna has made their Nuna Pipa 2019 Infant Car Seat out of flame resistant materials and has eliminated the spraying of chemical flame retardants!
The Nuna Pipa 2019 Infant Car Seat weighs in at 8 pounds. With its ergonomically-designed carry handle, it is incredibly easy to tote your baby from house to car, and car to stroller. The designers at Nuna managed to pack a tremendous number of safety features into the Pipa car seat (and, in particular, the Pipa car seat base), including:
True lock™ installation: The Nuna Pipa Infant Car Seat base features rigid lower attachments for LATCH installation, which make correct installation incredibly easy (after all, the car seat only provides full protection if you install it right), and provide extra protection. The rigid attachment ensures that baby’s head is contained properly during an impact, since it’s attached directly to the steel frame of your car.
Stability leg: This clever attachment on the car seat base keeps the seat more intact during a forward impact, reducing forward movement by up to 90%. Wow! Based on USA FMVSS 213 testing, the stability leg can reduce head injury risk up to 33%.
Ensuring proper installation: The Nuna Pipa Infant Car Seat base has red/green indicators to tell you when the base and stability leg are properly connected to the car; dual bubble level indicators confirm the proper base angle. The multi-position base fits various car seat shapes.
Seat belt lockoffs: For installation with the seat belt, the Nuna Pipa Infant Car Seat also has lockoffs which have garnered praise from reviewers.
The Nuna Pipa Infant Car Seat also has a heavy-duty plastic shell – it’s light, but
We also love the unusual and useful Dream Drape, which shelters your babe from light and weather as she naps: it attaches to the end of the Pipa Infant Car Seat with hidden magnets, so you don’t have to fiddle with fasteners. If you’re not using the Dream Drape, it tucks away seamlessly into a hidden compartment. It’s made from UV fabric and mesh, letting you see inside while letting air through.

A full-coverage two-position canopy with an eyeshade;
