Hi im hoping to start a parenting forum (we currently have an ezboard) with some friends but before I look for a web host I would like to know a bit about what features we would need in particular bandwidth, can anyone tell me a bit about bandwidth and how much I would need each month and or how its measured? Thankyou

Instead of looking for a hosting package, my suggestion to you would be to get a reseller package from a place like MCHost or Splashhost. For $30-$40 month you will get plenty of hdd space and bandwidth to grow your forum with. A benefit is splitting the cost with the other parents you are starting this with, and each can also host their own domain, family page, or whatever.
Stay away from "unlimited" hosts if you choose not to get a reseller package, because if your site gets really popular, you may be shut down for hogging resources! This is only my opinion, but it really may be the best for you.
