Welcome home baby Logan !
Pictures of Tamar Braxton and Vince’s son Logan have finally been revealed to the public, at an exclusive photo shoot with photographer Rob Ector, for US Weekly.
During an interview with Good Morning America recently, Tamar opened up about her initial reaction to motherhood, revealing she had a hard time connecting with her baby, which made her question if she was the wrong mother and if it was all a mistake. Tamar claimed she did not immediately fall in love with Logan, especially after he would not breastfeed.
I guess in a sense, I did feel unattached because I really really wanted to connect with him. I wanted to breastfeed and when he didn’t latch on and I couldn’t produce milk, I just felt like, ‘Is this the wrong child? Am I the wrong mother?’ I didn’t [immediately fall in love] but I loved him. It wasn’t like, “Oh gosh, yes! My baby! Ouuh!” It wasn’t like that! It was “What do I do now?”
She also revealed that she had mixed feelings after giving birth, and that she dealt with jealousy because her baby had an instant connection with her husband Vince. Tamar says that she felt so distant from her son that she couldn’t even bring herself to change his diaper in the first few days.
I was in shock and it took me a few days to come to terms with the fact that I am a mom and this is my baby. I was questioning my motherhood. Is this a mistake that God made. Is this something I should hand over to my husband, because he connected with the baby instantly. And I was jealous pretty much. When he finally latched on [while breastfeeding], I felt like, “He got me and I got him and this was all meant to be.
According to experts, a high percentage of women have the same experience as Tamar after giving birth but are afraid to tell anyone. Two months later Tamar says that motherhood is the best thing that has ever happened to her and child’s birth is a gift from GOD.
This was very brave and courages for Tamar to share this, I’m sure many women can relate.
