When you're in a hurry in the lashing rain or you're in and out with baby a lot during the day the base is really handy, I can strap him in with seatbelt no problem but clicking into base is so much easier and faster.
Yeah, I’m just tight! Didn’t want to fall into the trap of just buying everything so held off and didn’t need it in the end. Personal preference though!
Whilst it's not a deal breaker, bases are handy in my opinion - when you're in a hurry (e.g. it's lashing down with rain) it's much easier to just clip in/out, plus providing you fit the base correctly in the first place it eliminates the risk of getting it wrong/not tight enough etc. I've found it particularly handy with our second child as we have a 3 year old and newborn (plus associated luggage) to get in and out (and by necessity one of them has to be on the driver's side). As alexlea88 said, you can cope without (and some seats are quicker/easier to belt in than others), but if I had the choice of one with a base for a little more money I'd go for it (it didn't factor into our original choice of seat as we bought a travel system package but I've subsequently bought a base for both cars, I was lucky enough to pick two up for around the standard price for one - definitely for convenience rather than out of necessity).
Nice. We had a 13hour flight. When we looked around for ours we where specifically looking for one to adapt to our pushchair and worked out expensive. £35 is no brainer. Great if you have other nuna stuff. Be careful lugging it around with suitcases and hand luggages. The travel one we bought was ideal as we took it as hand luggage and was light meaning only his baby bag and the car seat to take on-board. Was a handful at times with the suitcases but the trolleys came handy. Good luck and enjoy.
I’m looking at the nuna juva whjch is £35 and airplane approved. Might get that as got a long haul trip to visit family coming up.
