Octomom's Babysitters


When She's Gone

10/30/2012 9:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

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.

I'm not someone that hates this gal like some others seem to. But she seems to really like the attention. I think she thought she could play the mom role to a large group & it would just be sweetness & light. But as any parent can tell you, there's more to parenting than rocking a baby to sleep. I guess it's catching up with her.

I think Nadya is starting to turn her life around. I think she is away from negative people and looking to make her life better. These nannies seem to be doing a good job at last instead of just calling CPS and tabloids complaining all the time like the old ones.

Its sad that with that many kids at once, I feel that they would not get the personal attention a child would need. Always bustled around in a pack, like school kids, can't be good for their individual growth. If i had that many kids it would be a constant thing, trying to give each child enough personal time
