  • I'll answer to the best of my knowledge. Some I am not sure of either. But these ones I know.

    DH/F/D/S means Dear Husband/Fiance/Daugher/Son
    IMO- In My Opinion
    KWIM- Know What I Mean
    SS/D- Step-Son or Daughter
    MIL- Mother In Law, FIL- Father In Law, SIL- Sisiter In Law, BIL- Brother In Law, etc
    SO-Significant Other
    BF- Breastfeeding
    FF-Formula Feeding
    BTW-By The Way

    I'm sorry but that is all i can think of at the moment. But I hope other moms can help you along the way as well.

    BTW, welcome to Cafe Mom
