About Andrea Olson

I'm Andrea and I spend most of my time with my 6 children (all under 12 yo) and the rest of my time teaching other new parents how to do Elimination Communication with their 0-18 month babies. I love what I do and try to make a difference in one baby or parent's life every single day. (And I love, love, love, mango gelato.)

    I actually see the opposite: potty resistance for my kids is usually at home. Out in public, they go easily. At home, it seems like they just plain are too busy having fun to pause. My 3 year old has taken to “But I didn’t pee in my undies!” When I catch a cue and tell him it’s time to go to the bathroom. 🤷🏼‍♀️🤦🏼‍♀️😂 My just-turned 2-gear old is my first EC/potty before 1 baby where I didn’t give up after a week or two, and she has a tendency to tell me she needs to go when we’re out and about, but at home, she only tells me once she’s wet. 🤷🏼‍♀️
