Infant Car Seats

Here at Tadpole we are passionate about keeping your little one safe and you sane. We know just how overwhelming buying an infant car seat can be. With so many different options, unclear websites, and confusing terminology, determining which car seat is going to be the best for you and your family is a monumental task. That's why we've created this condensed list of our favorite and best selling infant car seats, making it a breeze to compare these different brands back to back.


UppaBaby Mesa MESA Infant Car Seat - Henry (Blue Marl) Wool Version : Home &  Kitchen

If you've ever shopped at Tadpole you know how much we love UppaBaby. Their intuitive designs and stellar customer service are always huge pluses. As well as being super safe we love that the Mesa infant car seat is super easy to install and clicks right into the UppaBaby Vista and Cruz, no adapters needed! It also has the option for merino wool fabric that is not only naturally fire retardant but also helps regulate babies temperature, keeping them cool when it's hot and warm when it's not.

Clek Liing

Clek Liing Infant Car Seat + Base – Li'l Baby Sprouts

The Clek Liing is another awesome infant car seat. Clek is based in Canada and has some of the best safety ratings on the market. The Liing is super sturdy and boasts a load leg in the base and up to seven (!!!) recline positions. It also has one of the shallowest bases on the market, making it a great option for drivers with longer legs. As if you needed any more convincing the Liing also has a million color and fabric options as well as fun accessory names, majorly upping its cuteness factor. It is also compatible with many stroller options with an adapter.

Nuna Pipa RX

Nuna Pipa RX Infant Car Seat 2021 | 2022


The Nuna Pipa RX is always in high demand here at Tadpole. This car seat has quickly become a classic due to its huge amount of advantages. The RELX base contains many benefits, including a load leg and a rigid latch system, while still being super narrow making it a breeze to fit in pretty much any car. Other pros of this car seat are the high quality materials, iconic dream drape, and leatherette carry handle, making this car seat comfy to use for both you and your little one.

Nuna Pipa Lite RX

Nuna Pipa Lite RX

The Nuna Pipa Lite RX is one of the most exciting car seat releases of 2022. This model has all the benefits of the regular Nuna Pipa RX but with premium materials (merino wool) and a seat that weighs in at barely 6lbs. Given that most car seats weigh 8lbs and above this low weight can be a game changer. Also, unlike Nuna's old Pipa Lite this updated model is able to be used without the base, making it a great option for those who travel often.


Here at Tadpole we know that baby gear information can be overwhelming, that's why we created this car seat comparison chart which helps you compare and contrast all the car seats mentioned above. Our goal is to make this process not only as painless as possible but also fun! If you have any further questions feel free to shoot us an email at or stop by :)
