  • Nobody made them up. People just observed kids who all did the same things eventually, like recognizing when they were wet or dirty and asking to be changed.

  • observant people who all decided that those signs correlated with when a child was more easily trained...?

  • i dont know who made them up, but probably a few smart pediatricians. makes more sense to wait til a child is ready then to force the issue on them.

  • interesting question! I always thought one that isn't on any lists that should be is a kiddo holding their legs up for you to aid in the diapering process.
