Nadya Suleman "Octomom" on Oprah

Nadya Suleman on Oprah: Can Any Mother Handle 14 Children?

Nadya Suleman gained fame (or infamy) when she gave birth to the world's first surviving octuplets. The mom quickly given the nickname "Octomom" already had six children at home. During an interview with Oprah that aired today, the talk show host asked, "Do you feel that you can give your children what they need and deserve?" Suleman said no, that "no parent could," but that she would die before she'd give up any of her kids. What one woman can handle is overwhelming for another. While some parents hit their limit with a single child, there are others like the Duggars who have 19 and would welcome more offspring. But do you think any single mother (or father) could handle the Suleman bunch, which includes octuplets, twins, and an autistic child?

Yeah! What starbucks said! :D It might be possible for someone incredibly patient who doesn't need much sleep to take care of 14 young children's most basic needs, but nothing more.

I think you can handle them, but nothing more. You can not give them the attention and love they need. It's one thing to feed and change babies. It's another thing to raise, love, educate children!

I agree with the comments that if they were spread out you could. There is no way a single person could care properly for 8 newborn babies by themselves and give them each all the love and attention they need and still care for 6 other children.
