When it comes to your infant’s car seat, you can never be too careful. Nuna’s Pipa line of car seats have a variety of features that make them some of the safest on the market—and the latest iteration keeps baby secure while still being light and easy to carry.

What we love

  • From the base’s stability leg to the seat’s fusion of plastic and Aeroflex foam, every element of this car seat is designed to absorb impact and diffuse it away from baby in the event of a crash
  • Weighing in at only 5.7 pounds, the seat is super easy to lift and load—especially when you take your baby’s added weight into consideration
  • The new combination of fabrics (merino wool and TENCEL fiber) is moisture-wicking, environmentally-friendly, and not chemically-treated
  • Nuna’s signature Dream Drape is larger and offers even more coverage than before, ideal for when baby is taking a snooze or you want to keep the elements (or prying eyes) out


Nuna’s not going to mess with this classic. They’re just going to keep making it better.
