    Which seat when traveling with a 6 month old?

    We will be taking a flight with our 6 mth old. Wondering which seat I should take. Our Sienna will be waiting for us when we get there and then we will have a 4.5 hour drive. Which of these seats would be easiest and most comfy? Chicco Keyfit, Urbini Petal, MR 65 or Cosco Scenera?
    Thanks!

    I found our keyfit a breeze to travel with and install on the plane, even when I was traveling alone with the baby.

    Did you install it on the plane without the base?

    Yes, it is really easy! The base wouldn't work on the plane since the buckle is in the middle and would be right in the way of snapping the seat in. I just put each side of the belt through the belt guides on the seat (they are exposed on a Keyfit 30 and under the cover on the Keyfit 22) and pulled it tight. It was nice and snug. I was able to get her out during the flight to nurse without having to unbuckle the seat.
