A Mom in Utah Called 911 When Baby Needed Formula, & Cops Brought It to Her!

Our hearts are so full after reading this story.

Police officers in Highland, Utah, recently helped out a mom who called 911 when her hungry baby needed formula.

According to KSL-TV, mother of five, Shannon Bird, called the cops after realizing she wasn’t able to feed her hungry 6-week-old baby. Reportedly, Shannon’s husband was out of town and she didn’t have any formula in the house because she usually breastfeeds.

“She was screaming. I called my husband and we were brainstorming. I started calling neighbors and teenagers in the area and my little brother and no one was awake,” Shannon told KSL-TV.

“I’ve been calling neighbors and no one will answer,” she reportedly said on the 911 call, which was obtained by KSL-TV. “I’ve never been in this predicament ever. My milk just literally dried out. This is my fifth kid and this has never happened.”

What happened next was super sweet.

The Lone Peak Police Department picked up a gallon of milk on their way to Shannon’s home. Once they arrived, and realized the baby was too young for regular milk, they headed back out for formula.

“We’ll leave this with you,” Officer Brett Wagstaff says in body-camera footage, according to KSL-TV. “We’ll be right back with some formula for your baby — she’s adorable.”

The officers returned with the baby formula, and didn’t let Shannon pay them for it.

“That’s the same stuff we gave my daughter when she was first born, so hopefully it doesn’t upset her stomach,” Brett reportedly told the mom.

How cute is this story?! We need more officers like Brett.
