It's when people agree with a previous post. They put the previous post in "quotes" and then put THIS as they agree or would say the same thing.

What does PUL in relation to breast pads mean? Thanks


Polyurethane laminate (PUL) is generally a polyester interlock knit fabric that has been laminated to a thin film of polyurethane. This laminated fabric is useful as a wind and/or water barrier in the construction of fluid-splash protecting garments, shower curtains, outerwear clothing, cloth nappies / diapers and cloth menstrual pads. It is very thin and breathable. It can be machine-washed and dried.

Hi,

Thanks for this, it's really helpful.

Just wondering if anyone can tell me what NT stands for as it's used a lot and I'm not sure what it means.

Thanks,

Erin

Hi, I have been meaning to ask for ages what ASW stands for?  I can figure out basic meaning given context - I think it is basically thinking pretty highly of yourself in a lighthearted way.  Can anyone explain properly?

Cardamom - thanks so much!! You know when something has been bugging you for ages...Now, I guess I have to think about more important things like daycare, work, what to cook etc.

Kakki - not sure about NS.  Can you remember it in a sentence?  Sometimes I can work them out when I see how they are used.
