Parenting Web Abbreviation Guide

I am thrilled to be a first time mom living in the information era but the abbreviations used on different “mom sites” can be confusing. There are a lot of abbreviations used in forums, discussion boards, review websites, blogs etc. that took a while to get used to. Some are pretty straightforward, but sometimes as a first time mom I had no idea what people were talking about!
