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.)

    We have traveled quite a bit through the US with my first three children. With all of them I’ve found it convenient to bring potty chair along. Traveling with toddlers and all the needed potty breaks are less of a problem to plan around. To make clean up even simpler we pop a disposable diaper into the chair. Once they’re finished with their business we remove and wrap it like one would wrap a soiled diaper. Clean up is a breeze and no one blinks an eye when you toss a diaper in the trash. 😁
