    Default Explaination Please!???

    I see so many moms posting - and I love reading the threads, but will someone explain some of the abbreviations and jargon to me?

    What is dd? - and the other codes for nursing lingo? Help me out here, I wanna be able to use the acronyms too!

    I'm not sure if there is a thread with all the abrevations listed, but here are a few common ones:

    dd- dear daughter
    ds- dear son
    dc- dear child
    dh- dear husband
    MIL- Mother In Law
    bf- breast feed
    ff- fourmula feed
    ebm- expressed breast milk
    OAL(D)- Over Active Let Down
    CD- Cloth Diaper
    EC- Elimination Communication

    There really is a huge list...I know it was confusing when I first started seeing them. It's like a whole new language!

    Here's a sort of "master list" from an earlier thread. Glad you asked!
