Aeroflex? Foam

Lightweight and resilient, Aeroflex? foam minimizes the force transferred to baby by absorbing and diffusing energy. The first-of-its-kind shell is created through an 8-hour molding process (typically 90 seconds!).

No Added Fire Retardants

Every element of the Pipa Lite has been sourced to be both fire resistant, and free of added fire retardant chemicals - from foam to fabric and beyond.

Memory Foam Insert

The headrest?s patented Tailor Tech? memory foam insert provides customizable comfort while cradling newborns.

Stylish Details

The Pipa Lite is sleek with a leather-look carry handle and cushy micro-knit fabric.

True Lock? Base Installation

Effortless 5-second install and steel reinforced system makes set up swift, simple and - above all - safe.

Created with Compare Ninja

Tough yet lightweight. Protective and portable. Exactly what you both need. Boasting a svelte new design, the Nuna PIPA lite weighs in less than every infant car seat at 5.3 lbs. Tote with ease longer knowing it goes the distance with aeroflex? foam, true lock? base installation, and no added fire retardant chemicals, all while exceeding American safety standards.

These are amazing! We have newborn twins and these make it so easy for us to transport them from our vehicle into our house and anywhere we need to take them. They are very lightweight and come in handy if you need to carry more than one baby in a carseat like me.
  • For all the moms with babies in the Nicu. These can hold babies that weigh 4LBS. Very important for moms of Preemies that need to do a carseat test before going home. They hold smaller babies than most carseats.

July 21, 2021
Stunning granite color. Very eye catchy.
I'd say this - I do regret getting the pipa light. Wish I had just gone for the regular pipa. The weight difference isnt that noticeable to me. And we have had to randomly use uber/lyft etc and I actually had to purchase a regular pipa for traveling. So I do regret my purchase to be perfectly honest. But for what its advertised as, it does the job.

Loved it!
July 6, 2021
I waited to write this until my daughter was out of an infant car seat, but I can safely say the weight makes all the difference. We arenít a traveling family so the use without the base was never a negative for us. All of the cushions are easily removable and I loved the canopy. It treated us great and weíve got it boxed up and ready for baby #2 once we go on this journey again.

Best Infant Seat Ever
April 20, 2021
Finally after 4 kids, we have finally found the perfect infant seat. This carseat is truly so, so light which is huge when you're toting around an infant, toddler, diaper bag, and two other children. This seat is super cozy, stylish, and easy to use. It has wonderful safety features which were extremely important to us. Very pleased and highly recommend this carseat.

Had our first baby last year (during a pandemic!!) and I was so worried about how heavy car seats and strollers normally are. The Pipa Lite has been my saving grace! Not only is this thing light, baby gets to ride comfortably. And if he falls asleep during a car ride, itís really easy to transfer the seat over to the stroller frame. Once baby hits the weight limit, weíll most likely stay with Nuna for the next seat.

March 19, 2021
So far we love it ! Itís a beautiful cart seat. Very high quality. The material is flame retardant free which was important to me. The handle is beautiful . Itís the only one out there Iíve found thatís not plastic. We cary the baby in and out using the infant seat quite often, so the light weight was what sealed the deal on this one . It also does not sacrifice any safety features. It utilizes the latest technology to be extremely safe while also being very light weight. Itís super easy to install. After reading about the road leg I wouldnít by another car seat without one . Itís important to note this car seat can not be installed without the base. If you live in a city this would not be a good option. It also does not have the dream drape. I must admit had I known that I may have gone with the Nuna Pipa RX . The dream drape looks awesome.

Very nice carseat! I was looking for something light and practical and I was fortunate enough to find this carseat. I just had my 5th baby and hands down this carseat is the most comfortable one I ever had. The best feature is how light it is. I remember dreading going places with my other kids because I Never liked dragging their super heavy carseats after myself. This carseat was a definite game changer in this stance. The only down part about it is the price...

Lightweight, great fabric, seems very safe
November 5, 2020
I purchased this carseat for our baby who has not been born yet, so we haven't used it yet. However, the extra added safety of the metal support bar and after installation in our cars - the safety seems premier to other carseats we have seen. I love the soft fabric, and the fact that it weighs 5 pounds is a huge reason we bought it. We bought it with intentions to ouse it for all future babies, and I think it will hold up well.

So light!!
July 8, 2020
This car seat is beautiful! I love how light it is, I had a c-section and this car seat will make life much easier. I also bought this car seat specifically because it takes babies 4lbs and up. I have a NICU baby and she wonít be much over 4lbs when we bring her home. The infant padding is plush and looks like it will keep her snug and safe even though she is tiny. Base installation is a piece of cake and another thing I love about this car seat. Donít hesitate to buy if you are thinking about it.......with the money in my opinion. I love the NUNA brand and also have my older son in their convertible car seat with is also a great car seat!

Really good car seat!
May 3, 2020
I did my research on car seat for infants and when I found the Nuna I was sold. Well I personally had to see it at a store so I could fully believe all the claims and I was up and over the moon. Did not purchase from the retailer because something was not right about them and decided to purchase from Albee Baby instead. Best decision even, really light car seat and great customer service. I am completely happy with this purchase and would recommend to new mommas both car seat and website!

May 3, 2020
We've been shopping for a good deal for this car seat for awhile since price is so steep. Albee gives you the best deals with their points, since you will always need some other baby gear. We're expecting twins so with 2 if these car seats we were able save major bucks on other purchases. We're so happy with our car seats as well! Super light and pretty just as advertised.

So much lighter than anything we tried out in a store. We love the soft materials and how easy it snaps into the base. Only complaint is that the handle is hard to lower all the way as the canopy can get in the way.

I purchaed this carseat to be compatible with my Silver Cross Stroller. It looks great and I love the brown leather detailing! It is sooo lightweight and a breeze to install. The only downfall is that the hood looks a little flimsy when it is not all the way closed.

This infant car seat does not disappoint! It's the lightest one on the market and makes a world of a difference compared to other brands and models. At first I had opted for a cheaper heavier (7lb) infant car seat and had to return it right away and buy this one... It just didn't compare to the Nuna Pipa Lite. It's also so easy to put into and remove from the base (in the car) and easily clicks in and out of my Nuna Mixx stroller.

Fantastic Car Seat
June 7, 2019
We could not have asked for a better car seat. With our first child, we had another brand. With this child we wanted something that wasn't heavy and looked nice. The Pipa Lite checked off both boxes. At almost 11 months in the seat still looks like new and the bases for the car are very easy to put in and take out. Just ordered her a Nuna Rava for her next seat.

May 27, 2019
Our baby isn't here yet, so I'll have to come back and review further when we finally get to really use it. However, we've taken it out of the box, and it was so easy to put together! We've also practiced installing it in the car, and it took less than 5 mins on the first try! Felt Super secure too! So excited to use this with our baby girl in a few short weeks. The materials, safety ratings, and reviews give me the confidence that we chose the best seat for our little one.

I really liked the pops lite. I have a bad back so was looking for something light. And it was! Much lighter than all the other car seats. My only complaint.. is my baby was on the large side. She grew out of it much earlier than I expected.

I am glad I went with this product because of its weight. My baby is a heavy one and even with this light car seat, my wife at times struggles with the weight. I wish I had gone with the lux because I think I would have used the canopy included, I find myself covering the seat with a blank at times so I believe it would have come in handy.
