Car seat for my toddler London to JFK

I'm flying with my family to NYC and my youngest is 2.7years old and very big for her age. Has any one else flew long haul with their toddlers and which car seat would you suggest please? Any advice would be great

For her size, I wouldn't bother with the car seat on board. She'll probably be excited with using a "big person's" seatbelt and having a bigger play area. If she needs to nap, just lift the armrest and let her spread out onto your lap. Instead, gate check an umbrella stroller to help with the arrival (she might be tired by that time) in JFK.

Will she be needing a car seat at either end? If not, you might want to look into the Cares Harness.

Hope this reply isn’t too late for your journey: NYC Uber and Lyft both have options which provide you a car seat for $10 extra per journey. So you don’t need to bring one. Take the train to LHR and avoid the car seat at the London end too.
