'Octomom' and Her Brood Doing Well

CNN,  Dec 18, 2009

When Nadya Suleman gave birth to octuplets in January 2009 the news was greeted with amazement around the world.

But astonishment soon gave way to criticism directed at her -- it was revealed that she was already a mother to six children -- and over the ethics of fertility treatment.

So far she has weathered the storm and soon her eight babies will be celebrating their first birthday. But how on earth does she cope?

"The children sleep all night," she told CNN's Max Foster. "They sleep maybe from 7.30pm to 5am, but there are not enough hours in the day."

Caring for octuplets -- six boys and two girls -- poses a unique economic challenge for the 34-year-old mother of 14 who has also been criticized for being jobless. Watch the video.
