    CLO for cod liver oil, FO for Fish oil - though usually that one is written out. Also, not an acronym but I have noticed that most of us use "Supp" or "supps" to abbreviate for supplements! Wouldn't want that to get confused with a suppository okay so maybe I'm the only one who thinks like that
    Wife to a sweetie DH & Mama to:
    C, 13yo ; A, 11yo ; B, 9yo ; G, 6yo - successful blue sway; H, 3yo - sweet surprise!; C, 2yo - successful blue sway!, S - newbie!

    Thank you GD!!
