California Briefing / La Habra

2 more octuplets go home to mom

March 27, 2009|Associated Press

Two more of the world's longest-surviving octuplets have been discharged from a Southern California hospital.

That makes 12 children now in Nadya Suleman's La Habra home, with two babies still waiting to be released.

Kaiser Permanente Bellflower Medical Center announced that Makai and Jeremiah went home Thursday night, exactly two months after their historic births. They join their six older siblings and four other infants at the family's new home.

Makai weighs 5 pounds, 5 ounces, and Jeremiah weighs 5 pounds, 14 ounces.

Two babies remain in Kaiser's neonatal intensive care unit. The octuplets were born nine weeks premature Jan. 26.

The first pair to arrive home were greeted by a chaotic crush of reporters and photographers on the quiet suburban cul-de-sac March 17.
