Bottle feeding is usually abbreviated as ff - formula feeding.

Really? In which case I really don't understand half the posts on here! grin Doesn't take much to confuse me though, I'll admit

HB generally taken to be home birth, but clearly hospital birth too.

I guess that the latter, sadly, is so much the norm it's taken for granted.
