Paloma Fernandes, one of the vloggers I have been following for a long time, I identify with her stories and I think her family is beautiful! I invited this 24 year old Paulistana to talk a little more about her life here for us at Changing Diapers! Welcome Paloma!
Changing Diapers: Paloma, talk a little about yourself, introduce yourself rs how old are you from where you are, how many children have their names and where you are from.
Paloma: My name is Paloma Aguiar Fernandes, I am 24 years old, I am a biology student at the Federal University of São Carlos – Ufscar, I have 2 children, Bernardo is 2 years and 5 months old and Rodrigo is 6 months old. I am from São Paulo, capital but I live in Indaiatuba, a city in the countryside about 100km from the capital.
Changing Diapers: How did your YouTube channel come about?
Paloma: The channel came about as a joke. I always watched the vloggers and moms and I loved it. I always thought about having a blog but never a YouTube channel, but since the second week of my second son’s pregnancy I recorded every week and saved it for future viewing. With the idea of the blog I discovered that to post videos on a blog it was necessary to have a youtube account and that was when I accidentally started to have an absurd number of hits. In this video I explain better how it all started.
Changing Diapers: Did you plan Bernardo’s pregnancy? Did you have any difficulty getting pregnant? how did you receive the news?
Paloma: No. It was all kind of scary lol. A few months before I got pregnant with him, I had gone to a doctor who told me that because of some cysts that I had my whole life on my left ovary, I would have a lot of difficulty getting pregnant and thinking about it would be difficult, I relaxed, but I continued with the contraceptive. In the meantime, I had a very strong urine infection and started with antibiotics and in this mixture Contraceptive + antibiotic = I got pregnant haha. It is true that this mixture makes one cancel the other. Well, I received the news kind of already knowing, the pharmacy test only proved what I already knew. I was very happy but at the same time very scared and afraid of the reaction of my parents, Lucas and how our future would be. After a while and with everyone’s support,
Changing Diapers: I know that Bernardo is allergic to cow’s milk protein APLV, what was the feeling you had and what helped you on this journey.
Paloma: Look, I can say that discovering his allergy was not easy. Bernardo since birth, had a lot of difficulty to gain weight. he suckled, suckled and suckled all the time and nothing made him gain the proper weight, that’s when the doctor decided to enter the formula to see if it would help him gain weight. When we gave it the first time, it swelled a lot and turned extremely red and we soon realized that something was wrong. When the doctor arrived at the hospital, he already diagnosed him with a milk protein allergy and said that I should cut out all the foods that contained milk from my diet because that was what prevented him from gaining weight. I went to his pediatrician and his blood tests proved it. from then on, a struggle began to continue breastfeeding, but I was not able to keep my diet restricted to milk products and even trying, my milk weakened a lot, and I think my despair and sadness contributed to this, and soon he dropped his chest and was just in the bottle with Neocate, formula made for allergic children. What helped me to move forward in all this was the love for him and the desire to see him well. I fight atpe today for his recovery, I take him to all the doctors who tell me he has the solution for this and we have already overcome this allergy by 60%. I know that my faith and search for his well-being will help us win 100% and it won’t be long. What helped me to move forward in all this was the love for him and the desire to see him well.

Changing Diapers: Do you think about having more children? and your husband thinks? have you heard the famous questions if the factory closed? (I always hear only because I have 3 children!)
Paloma: Ahhh I always hear: Won’t you try a girl? LOL. I don’t think about having more children but I don’t like to say you never know? the future belongs to god so I cannot say that I will never have it but for now neither I nor Lucas think about it.
Changing Diapers: What is your biggest desire in pregnancy, anything different or unusual situation due to the famous wishes of pregnant?
In Bernardo’s pregnancy, I felt a lot of desire for carambola rs, in Rodrigo’s I didn’t have a special desire, I just took advantage of the situation. Lucas always did everything I asked so I didn’t hesitate to live asking to eat out lol.
Changing Diapers: Does your husband Lucas change diapers for babies? and how is he like daddy?
Paloma: He’s not a big fan of poop diapers lol but who is he? but he does. Lucas is a wonderful father, I couldn’t have chosen better. He is only 23 years old and he plunged headlong into this world of fatherhood, he really embraced the cause, you know? it helps me in everything and a little more and it is very present in all the phases of the boys’ life since when they were still in my belly.
Changing Diapers: What are the main changes in your life after children, and in the relationship?
Paloma: I have a blog post where I explain more or less how things got after them.
But I can say that nothing, nothing, nothing else is the same. Everything changes. Our wishes, principles and plans for the future. a son changes everything, 2 then hahaha
Changing Diapers: How is your life parallel to that of mother and wife, do you have any project for the near future? What is your desire professionally speaking.
Paloma: So, I went back to college since August and my plans are to finish it as soon as possible lol and focus my studies on the competition for criminal expert of the civil police of São Paulo. until then, i intend to work in my area until i reach my goal in the police. but I’m still putting it off a little when it comes to work. Rodrigo is still a 6-month-old baby and I don’t know if I’m still prepared not to be with him on my day, you know?
Changing Diapers: The feeling of mother in your perception is …
Paloma: The biggest and most beautiful. There is nothing comparable to a mother’s love for a child. Being a mother makes you better. It transforms you and makes you a better person.
Paloma, I love watching your videos! you are too charismatic, human and hyper mega friendly! Much health to you, your children and your family. Much success with your blog and your videos! Mega Thank you!

My name is Dr. Alexis Hart I am 38 years old, I am the mother of 3 beautiful children! Different ages, different phases 16 years, 12 years and 7 years. In love with motherhood since always, I found it difficult to make my dreams come true, and also some more after I was already a mother.
Since I imagined myself as a mother, in my thoughts everything seemed to be much easier and simpler than it really was, I expected to get pregnant as soon as I wished, but it wasn’t that simple. The first pregnancy was smooth, but my daughter’s birth was very troubled. Joana was born in 2002 with a weight of 2930kg and 45cm, from a very peaceful cesarean delivery but she had already been born with congenital pneumonia due to a broken bag not treated with antibiotics even before delivery.
