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 think I have been off balance! We stopped nappies over the Christmas break and I was going well but the last few weeks he has stopped signalling and just pees everywhere. I thinkni need to refocus on the connection with him to help him feel more loved. It is hard to be patient when he goes through all his trousers in one day!!!
