I am a big mama, and pregnant to boot.
We flew (just me, Abby and my belly) in May and we did ok. She was in her Evenflo Triumph (which is wide, but has a narrower base.) and I put up the armrest and squashed my butt next to the base. Not the best feeling, but we made it. I liked it better on the flights where we were the only 2 in the row, and felt sorry for my seat companions when we had 3 to a row. (I had to sit in the middle, get up to change diapers, pee again and again, and get crap out of the diaper bag, etc.) But they were mostly good sports.
So basically, you just take one for the team and cram your butt as far as possible next to the carseat.
Sometimes it is great to be a mom, eh?
