    Help with drive & fly trip with 3yo

    My DD is 3.5 years old, but weighs 42lb and is 41" tall. We will be driving for 12 hours to our destination, spend the week there, then fly home. I'm trying to figure out which of our car seats to take on the trip.

    She is currently using a Britax Marathon daily, and loves the seat - very comfy for her. I also have a Graco Nautilus in our second car, but she doesn't like it much because she doesn't sleep well in it.

    Since we will be driving for a large amount of time, I want to take the Marathon. But it's so large I don't want to carry it on the plane (aside from that, we will each be carrying on a carry-on bag, and my elderly mother will be with us, so I'm going to have to help her carry things too). So would it be okay to check it? and how should I pack it - or just use their bags they provide? Or is there a better seat I should consider buying? I would hate for her Marathon to get damaged while it's being checked, cause it's our main seat for her.

    We will be flying on AirTran.
    Thanks for your ideas.
    Heather
