If you'll be doing a lot of walking in the airport, you may want to get a folding/collapsible luggage cart (I imagine they're around $20 at Canadian Tire or Walmart) that you can strap the car seat...

Your cheapest option is without a doubt going to be the Scenera, but you'll get it cheaper at Walmart than at Costco online.  They're usually around $75 at Walmart and recently was on sale for much...

My very long newborn did not fit, and still doesn't at 4 weeks -- but probably will soon. You would have to have an extremely long and long-torsoed babe. I think the harness height is around 10".

See if you can get a birth stool in there to sit on. Also, folded towels ought to work. Once you soak it/them, and provided it's thick and heavy enough, it should stay put.

It should say in the manual. The general guideline is 80% must be on the seat, so 2" shouldn't be a problem provided the manual doesn't say otherwise.

I'm pretty sure it's the circular slightly padded bit that slips over the crotch strap. I think it's more for comfort than a required bit for proper workings of the harness.

I once taught a girl called Atlin, and now know a 5 year old boy called Atlin. It's very uncommon, yet not made-up sounding.
