Real Nappy Week 2013: Abbreviations Update

Postby JabberJabber » Sun Apr 14, 2013 9:07 pm

It's that time of year again when we are celebrating all things cloth! There are so many terms and brands and we often use abbreviations to refer to them. We thought it was time to hightlight where to look for a translation and also to ask you to provide us with things that are missing.

As you will see, it's not just nappy related terms, but all sorts. So if you know of an abbreviation or acronym that should be on here, please comment on the thread and I will add it to the list.

Thanks :)
