I am such a noob lol......

Is there a forum or something which explains all of the abbreviations women use on this site??I figured out that BF and FF stand for *Breast feed and Formula feed* But I have yet to figure out what 'DH' means....I assume it is something about husband, or dad....but I am so confused around here....
