I'm a 31-year-old mum-of-12, I started at 16 and the older kids help me raise the younger ones

MOTHER-OF-TWELVE Britni Church, whose brood includes triplet boys, shared her tips for caring for some many children – including drafting in the older ones to help and drinking a lot of coffee.

The American mum shares snippets of their lives on social media and answers questions from fans of their big family.


In one video on TikTok, a viewer asked her: "No hate at all, genuine question, do you make it a priority not to parentify your older children?"

Britni said: "As a mom to 12 kids, I get this question a lot. It's simple. I don't make them do anything they don't want to do."

Luckily for Britni, her older children are often keen to help out.

One viewer commented: "But most of the time they WANT to, mine fight over holding and taking care of the baby."

To which Britni responded: "Yes!!"

Britni also credits a lot of coffee with helping her manage her day as a mum to such a huge brood.

The full-time mum and her husband Chris spend the equivalent of £230 a week on groceries, and go through five boxes of cereal, 66 cartons of milk and 600 nappies.

She previously defended her large brood and said they are "just like everyone else" after being criticised for her super-sized family.

Speaking to CafeMom, she said: "People assume a lot of things about us that just aren’t true – we are just like everyone else."

The US-based mum from Arkansas City, Kansas, had her first child, Crizman, 15, six days after her sixteenth birthday with her ex-husband.

The pair had married five days before, and had another four children together – Jordan, 14, Caleb, 13, Jace, 12 and Cadence, ten.

After the divorce, Britni unexpectedly fell pregnant with her sixth child, Jesalyn, now eight, in 2012.

She spent three years raising six kids alone as a single parent before meeting her current husband, Chris, a sub-contractor, in 2014.

The pair have since had another five kids together, and are now expecting their sixth.


In other parenting news, this couple wanted one more kid but ended up with all-female quintuplets – they change 420 nappies a week and make 40 bottles daily.

And this mum is raising quints, triplets & TWO sets of twins – all of her kids were conceived naturally and she spends £2k a month on food.

Plus this mum asked her midwife for an extra ‘husband stitch’ after she gave birth and it saved her sex life.
