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.)

    Hello, I am I the middle of the GDF Book and have been practicing EC for 1 month and a half, Part Time, when I can. My baby boy is now 4 months old and when he pees in the top hat potty or sink, sometimes pee gets on his legs or around the penial area from the little squirts or dribble. Is it best to keep toilet paper or a cloth nearby to always wipe up? I find rinsing him after gives him a little scare. Any suggestions appreciated. Thank You!

      Yes, a little pat dry with a cloth is super helpful!
