Of course, it is logistically easier for a mom of octuplets to simply bottle feed, since breastfeeding eight babies would take most, if not all, of each day.
Since one newborn can go through ten to fifteen diapers every day, octuplets could require up to 180 diaper changes each day.
After the octuplets become a bit older, mom and the nannies will have to try to get the kids into some type of routine.
Since children in daycare centers may not receive adequate attention and stimulation to develop fully, even more help would be needed for a set of octuplets.
With six children under the age of ten already at home, Suleman gave birth to octuplets in January, 2009.
