Best of Baby Winner for Best Infant Car Seat
There’s a reason we can’t stop awarding the Nuna Pipa Lite RX in our annual Best of Baby franchise—it’s just that good. For starters, it’s lighter than light, which comes in handy when your infant starts to pack on the pounds, and you’re suddenly hauling a heavier load from your vehicle to your house to a stroller base and everywhere in between. A five-second True Lock installation system makes this car seat a breeze to safely install: Use the accompanying base, or take advantage of the latest model’s built-in belt paths that allow you to safely install the seat with a vehicle’s seat belt (perfect for taxi travel). We love the thoughtfulness put into each feature: Magnetic buckle holders keep straps out of the way when you’re trying to quickly and efficiently seat a fussy babe. Suffice it to say that the Nuna Pipa Lite RX has all the bells and whistles, and it has yet to be dethroned.
The Nuna Pipa Lite RX is one of the lightest infant car seats on the market, weighing in at just 7 lbs
Standout features include a no-rethread harness; a padded, adjustable headrest; a recline you can change without removing the base; magnetic buckle holders to keep straps out of the way; a built-in Dream Drape shade for when baby needs to nap on the go and a UPF 50+ canopy
The Pipa Lite RX doesn’t skimp on safety. It’s made from aerospace aluminum and Aeroflex foam for reliable security and naturally flame-retardant fabrics to lower chemical exposure. Side-impact protection and a stability leg give you extra peace of mind
The height-adjustable headrest is made with Tailor Tech memory foam for supreme comfort to keep your little one happy on the go
