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.)

    How do you get caregivers convinced to at least try EC? We wanted to start daycare after our baby has turned one year old, but the daycare center strictly refuses to put our baby on the potty and forbids the use of washable nappies. (We’ve been doing EC since 6 weeks old so it matters to us). When I’ve told them that maybe we would postpone the starting date until our baby has turned 18 months old, they said it would not work either because they’ve never seen babies before 2 years old to use the toilet alone (no one is helping apparently). What are your experiences with daycare?

      There’s another podcast on this very topic! It can be difficult to get the daycare on board, but once they are witness to how EC works it tends to change minds. Check these out! ,
