Posts Tagged ‘lingo’


The more I hang out with my friends who are “moms-to-be” or new moms, I feel like they are constantly using lingo and acronyms that are foreign to me. Or if I am searching through an online forum with message boards, I noticed how many acronyms are being used and there are so many LO’s, FTM’s, DD’s and FWIW’s, that I feel I need an interpreter! I am relatively young and feel like I am becoming outdated!

That’s when I found this amazing interpreter on BabyCenter.com called an online guide to motherhood-related acronyms.

Here are the acronyms and emoticons that I find to be most useful, IMHO, to help you navigate the vast sea of motherly message boards.

BF: breastfeed, or boyfriend
BM: breast milk, or bowel movement
CIO: cry it out
CS or C/S: cesarean section
 DD: dear daughter
DF: dear fiancée
DH: dear husband
DP: dear partner
DS: dear son
DW: dear wife
EBF: extended breastfeeding, exclusively breastfeeding
FF: formula feeding
FTM: first time mom
LO: little one
MC or M/C: miscarriage
ML: maternity leave
MM: mother’s milk
PG: pregnant, or pregnancy
PPD: postpartum depression
SAHD: stay-at-home dad
SAHM: stay-at-home mom
SAHP: stay-at-home parent
WAH: work at home
WOH: work out of the home

Okay – enjoy and TTYL (talk to you later!).
