Octomom's Babysitters

It's EASIER

When She's Gone

The people taking care of Octomom's kids while she's in rehab couldn't be happier the mom of 14 is out of their hair -- in fact, one of the children's caretakers tells TMZ, it's WAY easier to do their jobs now that Octo's gone.

Octo has 3 nannies and 2 friends helping her with the kids while she seeks treatment -- and one nanny tells TMZ,  Octo's been calling twice a day from rehab, giving specific directions about how to care for each child.

The nanny says it's been helpful to hear from her, but it's a MILLION times easier to actually take care of the kids when she's not in the house constantly barking orders.

The nanny tells us, the house is much, much calmer than normal now that Octo's gone -- and the kids are in great spirits, behaving like angels.

It's a far cry from the photos we posted in April that resulted in a child services investigation against Octo -- real name Nadya Suleman -- showing the kids pooping outside and crazy graffiti.

The nanny says Octo will get to visit the children for the first time on Saturday and she's really excited. "She's been crying a lot," the nanny tells us.

As we reported, Octo entered a 30-day treatment program over the weekend for her Xanax dependency.

The fact that these so-called child care providers are talking to TMZ tells you everything you need to know.

She has 16 kids times average life span 80 = 1200 years of misery. You have to be licensed to drive a car but not have kids...

OBVIOUSLY it's easier without her and they're happier, she is the reason for the chaos and unhappiness. watching the live video, harvey was saying they need a MOM around so WHY haven't CPS or anyone else gotten involved and found GINA B who was clearly a more than apt caregiver for the children and had an actual relationship with the children!? instead, the children get to spend 30 days with three random (and i'm sure they are just lovely.....) nannies. if nadya is admitting to having an addiction, HOW is she in her right mind to decide what is best for her three and a half year old children and decide who should take care of them!?!?!

I do professional childcare. Kids are always easier to handle when their parents aren't there. When Mom & babysitter are both there, kids try to play you off each other. Get well, Nadya. Wish you the best.

AIDAN IS THERE TOO, WHICH ONE OF THESE "NANNIES" IS ABLE TO PROVIDE PROPER CARE FOR A SEVERELY AUTISTIC SEVEN YEAR OLD WHO CAN'T TALK, EAT, OR BE COMFORTABLE WITH ANYTHING?

Typical nadya, only thinking about herself. getting herself into rehab without making proper arrangements to keep her children with people who love them and who her children love. the kids are probably being so good because they don't know who they are with and are uncomfortable/scared/don't know what to do with them.

Everyone must be getting some well needed rest. Including the kids! I have a feeling mom is the cause of most of the chaos.

This story is bull****. No reputable rehab allows phone calls the first few days you are there. This is a publicity stunt she and her ex-porn star s***my manager cooked up. The rehab hasn't even updated their website for a few years. I also know for a fact that no reputable rehab facility would turn down payment from someone who said they were able to pay.

Child protection, PLEASE take this woman's kids. She doesn't give a gnats ass about those kids, they're just a government paycheque and keeps her crazy ass in the public--or should I say TMZ's- eye.

Sounds more like a holiday away from the kids. Some of these rehabs are like resorts.

None of you people have walked a day in the life of this woman's shoes' and have no right to comment rude remarks about her. For crying out loud, this woman has 14 kids, not to mention that one is autistic. Personally, I have 2 autistic kids, and they are very draining alone. Please leave this poor woman alone!
