Are Nuna Car Seats Compatible With Strollers?
Yes, Nuna car seats are compatible with strollers. All Nuna PIPA and PIPA Lite infant car seats are compatible with all Nuna strollers. Also, there are other brands of strollers that are compatible with Nuna car seats.
If you intend to use a Nuna car seat on a Nuna stroller, you won’t be needing any enhancer (adapter) for a secure connection with the stroller. On the other hand, you would need a car seat adapter to use Nuna car seats on other brands of strollers.
It is important to know that only infant car seats are compatible with strollers. You can’t use the Nuna RAVA convertible car seat or any other convertible seat for strollers. Convertible seats are heavier and not suitable for strollers.

Which Other Brands of strollers are compatible with Nuna car seats?
If you have a Nuna infant car seat and don’t want to form a travel system with a Nuna stroller, there are other options to explore. Below are strollers that are compatible with Nuna infant car seats.
You can use Nuna infant car seats on Mockingbird’s single or single-to-double stroller. You’d need the Mockingbird car seat adapter to use Nuna car seats on Mockingbird strollers.
Nuna car seats you can use on Mockingbird include PIPA, PIPA RX, PIPA Lite, PIPA Lite R, PIPA Lite LX, and PIPA Lite RX.
If your plan is to use a Mockingbird Single-to-Double stroller to push two kids, you will use the car seat adapter on one seat and will also need a second seat kit for the other seat. You can get the second kit from Mockingbird.
Baby Jogger Stroller
It used to be that you can use all Nuna PIPA infant car seats on Baby Jogger City Select and City Select Lux.
However, in 2012, Baby Jogger discontinued the car seat adapter needed to connect Nuna car seats to the City Select, City Select Lux, or City Select 2 stroller.
Without an adapter, the Nuna PIPA infant car seat would not be compatible with City Select strollers. We are not sure why the adapter was discontinued, but it could be due to compatibility or safety issues.
Graco strollers are not compatible with Nuna infant car seats. You can only use Graco infant car seats on Graco strollers. To use Graco car seats on Graco strollers, no adapter is needed, a simple click would do the magic.
There is no adapter to attach a Nuna infant car seat to a BOB stroller, hence, they are not compatible. The BOB Gear All-Terrain Pro Stroller is compatible with Graco, Chicco, Britax, and Peg Perego infant car seats (adapter sold separately).
Nuna PIPA car seats are compatible with UPPAbaby Vista and Cruz strollers. If you have a Vista, Vista V2, Cruz, or Cruz V2 stroller from 2015 and later, you can attach any Nuna PIPA infant car seat to the stroller.
Here’s a detailed article on Nuna car seats and UPPAbaby strollers.
Maxi Cosi Strollers
Nuna car seats are not compatible with Maxi Cosi strollers. If you must use another brand of car seat on Maxi Cosi, it should be Britax (B-Safe series), Graco (SnugRide Click Connect Series), or Chicco (KeyFit 30 series and Fit2).
Using any of these brands of car seats on Maxi Cosi means that you’d get the required car seat adapter for a secure connection.
Recommended: Do all Nuna car seats use the same base?
While it is true that Nuna infant car seats are compatible with other strollers, using a car seat and a stroller from the same brand makes things quite easy for you.
If you decide to use a Nuna PIPA car seat on a Nuna stroller, you won’t be needing any additional adapter since the stroller has the adapter attached already.
Before you decide to use a different stroller brand with a car seat, ensure that the car seat adapter is readily available for purchase. Doing so would save you from unnecessary issues because there are times when parents struggle to find a particular adapter for a stroller.
