  • There's a cheat sheet somewhere. ...
    but PA means Public Assistance
    DH is dear husband
    SO is significant other
    BF is breast feed or bio father
    BM is bio mother
    DSS is dear step son

  • I don't have a cheat sheet, but I was super confused too when I joined CM. This is what I know:
    SO = Significant Other
    DH = Darling Husband
    DD = Darling Daughter
    DS = " " Son
    SS, SD = stepson, etc
    BF = Breast feeding
    FF = formula feeding
    MIL = Mother in law

    I know there are more but I'm sleepy. I hope that helps.
