Style + Convenience: Why We Love the Nuna Pipa Lite RX

Are you searching for a lightweight infant car seat that doesn’t compromise on safety, comfort, and convenience? The new Nuna Pipa Lite RX infant car seat is a true all-in-one, feature-filled travel solution that weighs in at just under 7 lbs. Here’s what we love about it.

Top-of-the-Line Safety Features

The Nuna Pipa Lite RX offers all the premium safety features Nuna car seats are known for. The included Nuna RELX base also features an extendable load leg that helps minimize the movement of the car seat in an accident and transfers crash energy from the car seat back into the vehicle floor. It features an anti-rebound panel to help secure the seat and prevent the rebound motion towards the vehicle seat back. The base also features a clearly labeled adjustable recline to help ensure your little one is riding at the proper angle as they grow.

 The Nuna RELX base also features steel-reinforced rigid LATCH connectors with red-to-green installation indicators, making it easy to ensure the base is installed correctly every single time. Need to install the Nuna Pipa Lite RX without the base? No problem! The European belt path makes seatbelt-only installation a breeze.

The Aerospace aluminum and Aeroflex foam provide superior security. From fabric to foam and beyond, each element is smartly sourced to be both flame-resistant and contain no added fire-retardant chemicals. 


Being a caregiver is tough, and the Nuna Pipa Lite RX has lots of handy bonus features that make the job a little easier. The no-rethread harness grows with your little one, allowing you to easily adjust the height for a safer fit without having to take the seat apart and twist up the straps. This car seat also offers convenient magnetic harness holders to keep the harness out of your way while getting your baby situated in (or out) of the seat. The 5-second steel-reinforced True lock™ installation makes set up swift, simple, and above all, safe

The Nuna Pipa Lite RX infant car seat works well not only with Nuna strollers but also with a wide range of other stroller brands (with adapters) so that you can design your perfect travel system that’s ideal for your lifestyle!


Every caregiver wants to experience a calm, relaxing drive (especially if you have a little one who hates being in the car). The Nuna Pipa Lite RX infant car seat was developed with comfort in mind. The soft, soothing Merino wool fabrics act as a temperature-regulating layer and have no harsh flame-retardant chemicals to irritate your baby’s delicate skin. The supportive GOTS-certified organic infant insert gently nestles your baby in the car seat to keep them feeling safe and stable. While you’re out running errands, the canopy has a peekaboo window and magnetic Dream Drape with breezy mesh panels to keep your baby comfortably shaded while still allowing plenty of airflow.

What Makes the Relx Base Different 

Basically, the RELX base offers extra positions for your LATCH connectors, along with additional recline positions. Sports cars and other similar “non-family vehicles” are often more challenging when it comes to installing a car seat. The locking 3-piece stability leg on the RELX base offers a wider range of positions, making it easier to install in vehicles with a center “hump” in the backseat floor. The RELX base also offers a practical solution to a major issue customers had about previous versions of Pipa, which was that it couldn’t be installed in many middle seats because of the rigid LATCH connectors and tight connections.

What Parents Are Saying

Take a look at what parents and other caregivers are saying about the Nuna Pipa Lite RX infant car seat and Relx base:

“The best baby purchase I’ve ever made. Beautiful, functional, and safe. Worth every single penny. The base is sturdy and easy to install and the car seat is lightweight and amazing. My husband and I are in love with the quality and the functionality. Best baby purchase ever made.”

“We love how safe and secure baby is. We also love the convenience of the base and being able to attach it to our stroller. Great quality.”

“Love it. My baby is riding in style and is comfortable. Falls asleep most of the time. I love the dream drape and no-rethread harness!”

“The lightest I have found. I like that you’re able to use it without the base if needed. The magnet buckle holders are awesome.”

The Verdict

The Pipa Lite Rx infant car seat and Relx Base are loaded with plenty of features that make life more convenient, yet lightweight enough to carry while shopping (just 6.9 lbs). It’s also flexible enough to take from a taxi to the family vehicle, thanks to the choice of seatbelt or base installation.
