Not sure if you guys all heard, but Well Rounded NY recently turned one year old! And while we know it’s traditional on birthdays to give a gift to the person (or in our case, website) celebrating, we like to do things a little different around here. So for our first birthday, we’re giving a gift--actually many gifts--to one lucky reader! This week’s giveaway is a homage to our first birthday party we threw on a beautiful NYC rooftop a few weeks’ back--a party that could have never possibly have gone down, especially in such kickass style, without help from a few of our friends. We’ve gathered some of those friends together again now for a WRNYisOne Gift Package giveaway that includes some mighty fine goodies for you and your baby (or baby-to-be...or friend’s baby-to-be). Here’s what our WRNYisOne Gift Package includes:

In real life, postpartum mothers are just as likely to be wearing diapers as their babies are, and bumps need months to deflate.

That's why we're so grateful for the way celebrities are ditching damaging narratives about postpartum perfection and embracing the messy authenticity of new motherhood. Thanks to these modern mamas, the rest of us are seeing our own experiences reflected in pop culture, and that lets us know we're not alone.
