Our girl, Tamar Braxton affected millions of women across the country, when she bravely admitted that she did not initially fall in love with her newborn son Logan. Mrs. Braxton-Herbert made that statement during our EXCLUSIVE Interview a few weeks ago. Since she sat down with CNikky, the topic and the interview have been brought up everywhere! It’s been featured on Wendy Williams, hundreds of websites and now Good Morning America has asked her to explain her answer as well!
Tamar appeared on “GMA” this morning to give the real on how many brand new moms REALLY feel immediately after giving birth. Tamar dished that she felt unattached at first, and wondered if God had made a mistake by making her Logan’s mother.
“I loved him, you know. But I wasn’t like ‘oh, gosh, yes my baby, ooh,’ you know. It wasn’t that. It was more like what do I do now, you know?
You’re in shock….And you know, it took me a few days to really, like, come to terms with the fact that I am a mom and this is my baby.”
And it didn’t help that the breastfeeding and diaper changes didn’t happen as expected.
“Well you know, I was questioning my motherhood. … Like, is this a mistake that God made? Or like, is this something that I need to hand over to my husband because he and the baby connected instantly. And I wanted that. And I guess I was a little jealous, pretty much. Am I being really honest here? I guess I am.”
She continued about not feeling like the “right” mother:
“I guess in a sense I did feel unattached because you know, I really, really wanted to connect with him because I wanted to breast-feed. And when he didn’t latch on and when I couldn’t produce milk I just felt like, ‘Is this the wrong child?’ You know what I mean? ‘Am I the wrong mother?'”
But 2 months later, Tamar’s riding high in the mommy saddle and overcame all the doubts:
“When he finally latched on I felt like he got me and I got him and this was all meant to be….I am very happy. I feel complete … he is the best thing that ever happened to me.”
Because of Tamar’s honesty, many women are standing up and saying..ME TOO! We’re happy to know that mommy and baby are doing great! Thanks Tamar for giving us that Exclusive and not being afraid to live your truth!
