Air Travel with Britax Marathon

I have a 2 year old and planning on going on a 6 hour plane trip. We purchased a seat for out toddler and prefer to use a carseat since otherwise she won't sit still. We have a britax marathon. Is it too big and bulky for plane seats? Should we purchase a cosco Senera for the trip? Also we don't mind lugging the marathon through the airport, just want to make sure it fits on the plane. And we don't want to use a cares harness. Any suggestions are greatly appreciated! Thanks.

Cloth Diapers and Carseats

Hi Moms, We're expecting our third baby this winter and we've decided to cloth diaper this time. I've done lots of research, but the more I read the more indecisive I am on which type of diaper to choose. For those of you who have cloth diapered, which type and brand did you prefer? I'm trying to choose between prefolds and pocket diapers or fitted diapers and covers. Second question is about carseats--we've decided not to do an infant seat this time and just start with a Britax convertible seat. I can't decide between their models...

First Time on an Airplane

My husband, daughter and I are planning our first airplane trip in May. My daughter will be 2 1/2 then and I need advice! We would like to bring the car seat on the plane with us, it is a Britax Marathon, but I have been told by another mom that this particular seat pushes the child too much forward in the seat making their feet touch the seat in front of them. Has anyone experienced this? Do you recommend flying with the car seat or a seat harness at this age? Also, what do you do about drinks for your child. Since you can't get...

Carseat/booster for 5 Yr Old - Britax or Radian?

Hi Moms, I'm looking for a new carseat for my daughter who is on the small side; 50 percentile in height and 25% in weight. I can't decide between the Britax Frontier -- I think it may be too wide and she might get a sore neck if she falls asleep and her head falls sideways. Or the Sunshine Kids Radian XT or Radian 80 -- Will it be too narrow for her in a year or so? Is the height-adjustable headrest on the XT useful or can I stick with the 80? She is currently in a Britax Boulevard, this is for a second car but if she likes it better,...

Britax for Newborn?

Has anyone used a Britax carseat for a newborn? I am expecting a baby boy in about 4 weeks and I'd love some advice. I already have the Britax Marathon for my daughter who is 22 months old. But she used her Graco Snug Ride until she was 6 or 7 months old. I know the Britax can accomodate an infant 5 pounds and up. I've never heard or seen an infant/newborn in a big carseat. I know I'll eventually get another Britax for my son. Any thoughts?

Convertible Car Seat V. Booster Seat

UPDATED: I'm trying to decide between a rear-facing/front facing convertible car seat and a front-facing/booster seat (Britax Frontier 85) for when my son is 2 and front facing. I know that booster seats are generally less safe than teh convertible car seats but I thought that was b/c of the lack of a 5 point harness. Britax Frontier HAS a 5 point harness so I'm wondering if its stil less safe than the convertible car seat or if they are now equally safe... What are the advantages/disadvantages of booster v. convertible car seat? Does...
