At only 7 pounds, the PIPA urbn makes getting around the big city with a baby easier than ever.
Getting around New York City is a feat in itself. Add an infant or young child to the equation and every task, from running to the grocery store to meeting friends for coffee, becomes an arduous journey. But with the right equipment, like Nuna’s PIPA urbn travel systems, and a little bit of planning, that daunting errand outing can be a breeze.
To help new parents navigate the city like a pro, we asked Manhattan mom of three, Phebe Wahl, and premium baby gear company, Nuna, for their best advice to ease everyday travel. Because the last thing a new mama needs is one more thing to worry about.
Prioritize Mobility and Ease of Use
Hopping in a taxi or Uber with your baby has never been easier—The PIPA urbn takes just two seconds to latch into a vehicle.
In a fast-paced city like Manhattan, it’s crucial to keep things moving if everyone’s going to be on time. “As a working mom with three kids under five, I learned fast that moving my gang swiftly through the city was imperative,” says Wahl, EVP of editorial at Modern Luxury.
But between the baby, a diaper bag, a car seat and a stroller, moving quickly with a child (let alone three) is easier said than done. Anything that can lighten the load is a huge help. At only seven pounds, Nuna Baby’s new PIPA urbn car seat does exactly that. This baseless infant car seat, equipped with the integrated pipaFIX rigid latch system, is ultralight, easy to use, and can be installed into a vehicle in two seconds and uninstalls just as quickly with the easy one-hand release. Getting in and out of taxis and rideshares with an infant just got a whole lot easier. The super easy baseless installation makes for one less thing to worry about.
Choose Your Car Seat + Stroller Travel System Wisely
The PIPA urbn seamlessly attaches to any of Nuna Baby’s stroller options.
When it comes to being a prepared parent in the city, having the right baby products to meet your family and lifestyle needs is an important factor. For Wahl, this means equipment that is versatile and easy to use.
“Having a collapsible stroller where the car seat can quickly snap in and out is a game changer—that way you can go from the taxi to strolling in a flash,” Wahl says.
This ease is exactly what Nuna had in mind when creating the PIPA urbn travel systems. The PIPA urbn car seat is seamlessly paired with three existing, easy to fold and adaptable Nuna strollers—the TRVL, the TRIV next and the MIXX next—so parents have three different travel system options to accommodate every family’s different needs and lifestyles.
For traveling families, the PIPA urbn takes convenience a step further by securing in the airplane seatbelt through the belt paths on the side of the seat (the Pipa Urbn is FAA certified for aircraft use), along with easily latching into vehicles without the need to bring along an extra base. With all of these features, Nuna’s PIPA urbn travel systems ease the stress of going from stroller, to car, to plane with a child.
Not only are the stroller and car seat combinations sleek and easy to use, but Nuna's PIPA urbn travel systems also offer longevity for those fast-growing little ones as each can be used as a toddler stroller once they outgrow their infant car seat. With these one-box travel systems, parents are getting a world class infant car seat and an award winning stroller that they can rely on for several years, all in one convenient package.
Make a Go-Bag
One tip Wahl offers to keep the day running smoothly is to have your essentials on-hand at all times.
“A bag packed with wipes, diapers, snacks, extra clothes and muslin blankets were always with me—plus things to keep them busy like crayons and paper placemats they could color on in restaurants,” she says.
Along with keeping all your baby necessities on-hand, it’s important to protect your little one from the sun and the hustle and bustle of the city. The PIPA urbn’s removable UPF 50+ canopy offers protection from the sun, while the Sky drape, a fabric that pulls down over the seat and attaches to the front of the car seat with magnets, creates the perfect calming environment for your little one and gives parents yet again, one less extra thing to worry about bringing.
The PIPA urbn travel systems are a true reflection of Nuna’s motto, “designed around your life.”
