STOKKE® PIPA™ by NUNA® and Base

What is the proper harness tightness for my car seat?

A snug but comfortable harness is important for good crash protection. If there is slack in the harness at the time of a crash the child could move unrestrained increasing the risk of injury. With the chest clip placed at armpit level, pinch the strap at your child’s shoulder. If you are unable to pinch any excess webbing, you’re good to go

When I use the newborn insert, the harness seems very tight, even when it is at maximum length.

The Stokke® PIPA™ by Nuna® car seat comes with an infant insert and an optional foam pad that is placed in a pocket on the backside of the infant insert. If the harness seems very tight, remove the foam pad.

Stokke® PIPA™ by Nuna® is certified for a 4 lb. child (low birth weight baby). The purpose of the newborn foam pad is to put the smallest sized child in the most ideal position when in the car seat. In some cases, depending on the size of the child, that extra foam may never be needed. The harness length is appropriate for the full range of intended use.

What is the highest position that a child's head can be in when using this car seat?

When using this car seat always check the shoulder harness is at or below the child's shoulder levels and the top of the child's head must be at least 1 inch below the top of the seat back.

At what level should the harness straps be for my child?

For an infant that is rear facing, the harness straps should be even with or just below the baby's shoulder level.
