Five of the octuplets born to a Southern California woman have begun bottle feeding on formula. Kaiser Permanente Bellflower Medical Center spokeswoman Socorro Serrano says bottle feeding of the other three babies is expected to begin later Wednesday.

Serrano says the six boys and two girls born Monday are all breathing on their own and the mother is also doing well.

The spokeswoman says the mother, whose identity remains a secret, has begun pumping breast milk in anticipation of eight hungry babies.
