Here she told, weeping, that no longer ran milk to her breast, so that she could breastfeed her six-week-old daughter. And furthermore, she had no baby formula to give the little girl instead.


Shannon Bird is a blogger and lives in Alpine, Ohio. On Instagram, where she has over 100,000 followers, shares her pictures from her life as a mother to the five children, Hudson, Holland, Briton, Brooklyn, and London.

In the recording, she told emergency services that her husband is at work, and her four other children slept. Therefore she was now totally desperate, because she had no food to offer little London.

'I have called to the neighbors, but there is no equivalent. I have never been in such a predicament before. My milk is just literally dried out. This is my fifth child and this has never happened before', says Shannon Bird in the call, where she also tells that she does not have the formula at home, because she up until now has been able to breastfeed all her children.

Fortunately for the american bloggermor gave the paw to contact the police with mælkeproblemet. For shortly after appeared the two officers from Lone Peak Police up on her doorstep with 3.7 liters of milk.

After a little time the officers back with her mother, who stands and cradles his daughter to London in her arms.

- here is the same one we gave to my daughter when she was born, so it gives her hopefully no hassle with the stomach, said the officer to her mother and refused to accept payment from her.

I had not expected that they would retrieve it for me, " says Shannon Bird to KSL TV, and tells that her thought to call the police was that she might even be able to run in the supermarket, while the cops looked after the house, and her 8-year-old son could keep an eye on the remaining sleeping children.
