The Peg Perego infant seat has leather parts, which, when placed under the sunlight for very long hours, can get extra hot. If you live in a place with a very hot climate, you need to take note of this since your child’s skin can get burned when it comes in contact with the leather parts.

However, if you expect to use the Peg Perego infant seat in cooler months, that wouldn’t be a problem.

When getting the Uppababy Mesa seat, be sure to choose models from 2015 onwards* to have a breathable seat. Models prior to 2015 are said to make children overheat in the seat.

Conclusion


 

Having the same price point, let’s see what the advantages of the seats are against each other.

For the Peg Perego:

  1. It’s more compact, especially, lengthwise. If you are installing directly across the seat with a tall passenger/driver, you won’t have to move that seat more to the front thus, the passenger will have more space to move.
  2. It is a little lighter.
  3. It’s made in Italy (Some parents would prefer “non-China-made” seats).

For the Uppababy Mesa:

  1. It’s easier to move the canopy to your desired position.

There is nothing much that the Uppababy Mesa Infant seat has that the Peg Perego doesn’t have.

Both seats look as pretty and high-end as each other and getting their compatible strollers would cost almost the same.

Between the two, it’s a close fight.

  1. I have Peg Perego and bought because of its quality and safety features but honestly thinking Uppa baby would be better. My son has always hated riding in the Peg Perego. 10 months now and transitioning out of it. I soooo wanted to love the Peg Perego but I think the incline of the seat itself is not comfortable Although bigger in length, I think the Uppa baby is more reclined and comfy for babies. It’s extremely hard for my son to nap on this one too. I will very likely be switching to Uppa baby for baby number 2.

    1. Hi Brooke,

      Thank you very much for your insights about the two seats. I am sure my readers will find it helpful in their decision-making.

      Kind Regards,
      Pitin

  2. I have noticed that the Peg Perego is short in height and length, in relative to the Uppababby, Will this not have an effect as the baby grows, especially for fat babies?

    Could you please advise me on, up to what age could I use that.

    Thank you

    1. Hi Peniel,

      The difference in height and length of the two seats, I believe, is not very significant when it comes to fitting a child. They both have the same height and weight limits which are 35 pounds and 32 inches.

      Now, what age that would be will depend on the genes, of course. In general, most kids having those measurements are around 10 months to less than two years old.

      I hope this helps.

      Regards,
      Pitin

    1. Hi Peter,

      Thanks for sharing your thoughts.:) Appreciate it!

      We really do have different basis for choosing a car seat, and I respect your opinion.:)

      Cheers,
      Pitin
