This questions can be asking many different things so hopefully this it what you are wanting....
If you are wanting to know the type of sentence it is a simile.
If you wanting to know which part of the sentence makes it "Rhetorical sentence" I am 99% sure it is:
(The baby was like and octopus)
Remember it as anything that is very effective in the sentence and/or is Persuasive. Basically it stands out.
Sorry for the rambling, hopefully this helped. :)
