A five-year-old mother in Utah says she had to call 911 in the middle of the night because she had no way to feed her newborn baby.

In the 911 audio, Shannon Bird could be heard in tears at 2 am telling the sender that her breast milk had dried up and she had no baby food to feed her six-week-old daughter.

Bird, who is a blogger and lives in Alpine, told the coordinator during the January 28 call that her husband was away for work and that her four other children – one of whom had a broken leg – slept.

“I called neighbors and nobody will answer,” she said in the audio from KSL.

“I’ve never been in this predicament. My milk has literally dried out. This is my fifth child and this never happened. “

She said she normally breastfed her children and had no formula at home.

Officers from the Lone Peak Police Department were sent to Bird’s house and fetched a gallon of regular milk on their way to the supermarket.

Images from the officer’s camera showed Bird cradling her baby in a pink blanket as she opened the door.

After they realized that her baby was a newborn and could not get normal milk, the officers said they would go to the store for baby food instead.

“We’ll leave this with you,” Officer Brett Wagstaff was told as he handed over the regular milk.

“We’ll be right back with a formula for your baby – she’s cute.”

The officers returned shortly thereafter with the newborn formula and did not want to accept any money from Bird.

“That’s the same stuff we gave my daughter when she was first born, so hopefully it doesn’t bother her stomach,” Wagstaff heard the mother tell.

Although the officers acknowledged that they had never responded to a 911 call such as the one involving Bird, they said it was no different than helping someone replace a flat tire.

“So proud of our officers and their dedication,” the department wrote on their Facebook page alongside a link to a local news item about the ordeal.
