When you give birth to a child, you anticipate that there’ll be a lot of learning involved – dealing with poopy diapers, rocking a child to sleep... But the one time I never expected to be perplexed was mommy abbreviations, which are a dime a dozen on bulletin boards online. Just FYI,


DD: Dear or Darling Daughter

FTM: First-Time Momhttp://www.hindustantimes.com/Images/popup/2013/11/baby_blue_200px.jpg

SAHM: Stay-At-Home Mom

EBM: Expressed Breast Milk

CIO: Cry It Out

LO: Little One

DS: Dear or Darling Son

For the record, I’m an FTM who’s not an SAHM, and I don’t let the LO CIO – as yet.
