Mothers with Paint #6-Mafalda Pathik

Mafalda Pinto Leite

36 years, 3 kids, 3 edited cookbooks, pretty and super nice!

A mother like many of us, to reconcile motherhood with a professional design. Mafalda regularly sharing on facebook, and soon on your site, recipes and tips with the goal of encouraging people to eat better, to discover new ingredients and to understand the nutritional factors of food. I’m a fan! The practical recipes in a carefree style and refined at the same time, the crockery, cutlery, colors. The photos that accompany the recipes are wonderful and a source of inspiration.

In this special interview for the Blog of Charlotte she tells us a bit about how were your 3 pregnancies, what else do you like to do with the kids and still gives us great tips on food during pregnancy. And of course, it also tells us what your preferences when it comes to baby clothes!

Is read from one end to the other without losing a thing.

How was the choice of names?

Like small names. There is thus no emotional choice, as they are not names that have on family unless Vasco which is the name of an uncle who I really like.

Natural births or caesarean section?

Unfortunately I had always a c-section. The first baby wanted it to be as natural as possible, at home with a midwife.But my water broke on a Sunday lunchtime, I was at home until Tuesday waiting to be born and I ended up having to go to the Hospital. My daughter just born on Wednesday. From there had to be a c-section.

What changes in your food when you’re pregnant?

I try to eat as healthy as possible. Feed me in order to make sure the baby is having access to everything you need to grow up healthy soon inside the belly. I do a lot of research on foods that more “return” will give … How oats that are loaded with fiber, B vitamins and nutrients. Or the avocado is a source rich in folic acid (which helps form the baby’s brain and nervous system) potassium, vitamin C and B6 (which is needed for baby’s skin and brain development, but also helps in morning sickness)

And desires of different foods or sweets, you had?

Had desire to eat ripe mango … maybe because it was sweet and healthy at the same time (Vit. A and B, potassium, among other nutrients). Did many shakes with soy milk … delicious!

Which product did you use in pregnancies do you recommend for sure?

Sweet almond oil! I made very large bellies of three pregnancies (and gained a lot as well). I was careful to moisturize well the body, especially the belly with oil and never had a stretch mark. Got that common oil that can be bought in pharmacies and then can also be used in the baby.

What do you think more complicated postpartum?

The pain from my c-section. You have to understand that we did a surgery with a lot of points. My problem is that I will not always painkillers, because I believe that affects the milk, which in your time will affect the baby. For this reason the first 3 days I have pain, which are erased by having a beautiful baby.

How do you define your personal style?

I like to feel beautiful and comfortable. A few years ago I noticed that he always wore clothes of the same brand, the Vintage Bazaar. When I met Patricia Parker, owner and force behind the brand, I knew I had to join her. Since 2010 we have a partnership and close friendship. The Vintage is a brand that makes me feel special, as there are few equal parts. Is bohemia and fun … There is always a choice, can be a jumpsuit to take to the beach or a shirt for a tv show. In addition to the Vintage Clothing Bazaar has beautiful and unique accessories and decoration pieces.

The style that you like for your children’s clothing is an extension of yours, or for the kids like a completely different style?

My daughter has a very strong personality and early on that has the style your own. It turns out that it’s very different than mine. I left a lot of “pushing” my taste. I know what she likes and try to get dressed always.

The boys wear comfortable clothing. Vasco to be able to run and jump and the baby to move at will and get dirty.

Are there any children’s clothing brand that you love?

I love the DOT! Has beautiful clothes, comfortable and of excellent quality.

Any tips for those who are preparing the baby’s outfit?

Never buy babygrows with feet … It’s uncomfortable for babies, never fit right. The newborns as they spend most of the time lying down should be comfortable, with loose clothing, cotton. Attention to capuchos in coats and sweaters are very beautiful but are not suitable for who is lying.

Everything that goes through your mind, from sweaters to bodies should always have appropriate openings or springs.Babies hate tight things going through my head!

I have to tell you about the “bucket”! My mother offered me this last pregnancy a bucket to bathe the baby. When I looked at it, my first reaction was to think I was crazy! I did some research on the internet and saw that he had a lot of good feedback. Used and use! It is wonderful, especially for those who had a c-section because it’s very light. Babies feel safe and warm inside. Strongly advise!!

And mothers who are thinking about breast-feeding, take night shirts open to the front and drink lots of water.

Who do Caesarean take fiber bars and fruit to eat in the hospital, very helpful.

How concilias your professional life with the day to day routines to be mother of 3? You can still have time for you?

Honestly not really, but more now because I have a baby at home. I feel very lucky to be able to work from home. My daughter helps me a lot.

Which program more like to do together?

I am homely, I really like to spend weekends at home with the kids. And of course they love to cook with me, try out new flavors and recipes.

Tell me 3 values you consider essential to pass on to your children:

Be friend

Be true

Share

You’re a reader of the Blog of Charlotte?

I found the blog I am when I was doing research before Diogo was born. It was great, especially since it helped me make some decisions on buying things to take to the hospital and the baby. It’s always a help to know where you can buy certain products.

Thank You Mafalda.
