Yup, then sit back and get down with your Well Rounded weekly links.

There's two new Well Rounded babies in the house! Get a glimpse of our co-founder Kaity and managing editor Charlene's BFFs-to-be.

In ThirdLove’s mission to create the perfect sculpt for all women - and now that includes new mamas. With their close attention to detail and easy to use clasps, the new ThirdLove nursing bra is the perfect fit for the needs of the modern mom. Get your hands on one (or maybe two) here.


Apple has recently announced a string of new emojis to be launched later this year, including the breastfeeding mom! This new little emoticon will really spice up your mom-friend group chat.

    I can't see past you right now, I'm so small and everything's a little blurry.

    All I see is you.

    When you feel alone, like the walls are closing in, remember I'm here too. I know your world has changed and the days feel a little lonely. But they aren't lonely for me.

    You are my everything.

    When you feel like you don't know what you're doing, you're making it look easy to me. Even though we're still getting to know each other, you know me better than anyone.

    I trust you.
