Nadya Suleman, mother of octuplets plus six other kids, joins Dr. Phil to continue her first interview in front of a live audience. No one outside of the immediate family and hospital staff, has ever met the octuplets … until now. Go inside the hospital with Dr. Phil and Nadya to meet Jonah, Jeremiah, Josiah, Makai, Isaiah, Noah, Nariyah and Maleeyah, and find out how they're really doing. Then follow Nadya during her visit with Jonah, the only octuplet still in the neonatal intensive care unit, and see their precious moments together. Some of the babies will come home any day now, but the specialized care they need is astronomical in scope. Linda and Jackie from Angels In Waiting break down the realities of what it's going to take to care for these newborns. You'll be surprised to learn every detail they must consider to make the transition a success. Also, the women raise concerns about Nadya's new house. And, a few more angels surprise Nadya and her children with their generosity. You don't want to miss a minute of this show! Tell us what you think!


Find out what happened on the show.

Leave The Mother alone

This woman has not messed up yet with these 8 babies. She will... and it is normal to, but why the hell is everyone hovering over her? It's like everyone is waiting for a train wreck.

Leave her alone. It's terrible how the media are on a feeding frenzy with her.

i just get sick watching this woman

I am just disturbed watching Dr. Phil today..WHY IN THE WORLD is everyone going out of their way to make this woman who CHOSE to do this to herself....she once said that she holds EACH baby 45 minutes a day...hmmm has anyone ADDED that up....dont we just have 24 hours in a day??????!!!!!  I LOVE kids YET I am not OK with this woman goin out and getting FAMOUS (if that is even what she is) due to putting her babies in danger.....most kids in this world dont have food to eat and yet there are people throwing money at this woman to HELP her out????  God gave us the right to reproduce but USE your freaking head...........................................I am sick of paying MY HARD EARNED MONEY to bail women like her that put THEIR wants and desires above the WELFARE of their children,,,,,,,

 

Some PYSCH doc needs to evaluate this NUT JOB...and then you will see she DOES NOT deserve to have these 8 new babies in her care..much less the 6 she already has....GIVE ME A BREAK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Sad

This woman needs help, and not the help that we are giving her.  She has obviously done this for attention, and that is all that we seem to be giving her.  Instead of spending her time in interviews, she should be spending her time with her children.  The children she brought into this world that she cannot support mentally, physically or financially.  The poor children that are going to be raised by this woman, would be better off with parents who want to adopt.  We put adopting parents through the ringer before they can bring a child into their home, but for this woman we want to give her the world for making terrible choices.  She should have never been given the opportunity to bring even more children into her poorly managed life.  This is just sad and hard to find words to even describe, and those that I feel for are the children born to this woman, and the parents out there who truly deserve them.

Way to go Dr. Phil. I think you did a good thing for helping out Nayda. I know not everyone agrees on what she has done. I hope that she makes everything work with her babies. I don't thinks she deserves to loose them.

Today's show angered me very much. I realize that these babies are what we have to worry about, but Dr. Phil has now rewarded her with all the publicity and all the freebees he has helped her get. She seems to be a very shrewd  person.

I have read so many posts on here that "praise" this woman and "adore" and "envy" her. WHY?? Here is a woman that made a concious decision to, in her words "fill the void in her life" by producing more children that she knew she didn't have the money for. Now, Dr. Phil and the rest of the world will pay for her luxuries as she parades around on television and gets exactly what she wants. I do feel so sorry for those children and wish them the best, as they didn't have a choice to come into this messed up world. However, the mother in my opinion doesn't deserve to be "praised" or "adored". What she needs is some psychological help and to have her tubes tied so she is unable to have anymore children. As cruel as some of you may think that sounds, I think 14 is enough, don't you?? I agree with the post above. What is this world coming too when we feel sorry for people like this and think it's okay to give her all these things because of a immoral decision she made? I just don't understand people's line of thinking anymore.

I am so confused about all of this. My husband and I work very hard and no one rewards us with a new house, carpet, etc..... Why should she be praised for this? She needs to realize the mistake by her being a "lonely" child and going on to have all of these children. I CERTAINLY WISH SOMEONE WOULD REWARD ALL OF US HARDWORKING PEOPLE!!!!!!!!

Glorification of Nadya

Dear Dr. Phil,

 

My husband and I watch your program every day and are impressed with your ability to deal with the wide variety of problems and situations you address.

 

However, we are very disappointed and concerned about your handling of the octuplet situation.  We understand that these infants/children need care, however we feel that by putting the mother in the limelight as you have it may encourage others to commit to the same poor judgment.  You don't seem to have addressed to our level of satisfaction that this woman knowingly had ALL these children knowing that others would be "footing the bill".  How on earth do you or anyone else conceivably think that she will be a mother to all these children?!  She's left her own mother "in the dust" so to speak, and we don't see her in the wonderful picture you've all painted in Nadya's new home (given to her we assume by some generous individual).  As far as we know, the grandmother is nowhere to be seen - how sweet of Nadya to show her thanks for all the help her mother has given.  We also feel sorry for the first 6 children she's had, 2 or 3 of them with special needs....It just seems to us, and I'm sure to so many others, that she's used and manipulated the system.  We are concerned about your attitude towards "the next" woman who does the same thing.  Will you and others be so forthright in stepping up to condone such actions and totally irresponsible behavior?  We believe that by your actions you are encouraging another woman to do the same thing.  In this economic atmosphere, when is the financial dependency of such people called to accountability?

I totally agree, I have 2 children 5 and 11 months, we live in an 800 sq foot condo,.

Would I love more children yes! But we know we can not afford it so we do not have any more.

WHY ARE WE REWARDING STUPIDITY??

It makes me feel like maybe I should go out and do something stupid and not illegal so I can get a book, movie deal, lots of free stuff, and be able to sell pictures of my family for money!

As far as I was concered no one would have looked down on her for making PORNOS for a living! At least she would be paying her own way!!

I do agree the children are innocent.

But the way Dr. Phil is trying to coat her in sugar is revolting!

She is saying exactly what the whole world wants to hear so that in a year when her book comes out and the movie is on the Halmark channel we will buy it and watch and she can make even more money.

We honest people who live in obscurity eeking out a living and trying to live with in out means get no help.

But the stupid people who do the things we are too responsible to even think of catch all the breaks!

Nausiating!

I agree. It seems the good people go punsihed and the bad people in this world get rewarded.

 

I had to pay my way through college, I have to work 10-13 hrs. a day to make a living.  I am tired of seeing the people living on welfare and disability just coasting through life.  We work hard for them to live good. 

The doctor that allowed her to do this should lose his license.  A mother with no job living on welfare shouldn't have the opportunity to be producing more kids.  I feel she probably did this thinking she could get more in life from watching shows like Kate plus 8.  She figured she would get a free house, money, etc. and guess what, we reward her for being irresponsible in life.  

 

I am tired of working my butt off to try and make a living, pay my way through school, etc. No one helps me for trying to be a responsible tax payer. Instead we help the people that will not give back to society but drain it.
