This has gotten a lot of press in the US but I see it has made the BBC also. BBC Linky A California woman in her twenties who already has six kids 8 and younger had octuplets. Her husband is a contract worker on his way back to Iraq and she is staying with her parents. The thing that really gets me isn't in the BBC article but has been in stories here in the states. She plans to breastfeed them!!! FFS, a springer spaniel is equipped for 8 and still has a hard time with 8 pups. How can she feed 8 when equipped for 2?? She will be nursing for about 20 hours a day. Daft!
