And many new parents find themselves to be extremely overwhelmed when their baby makes its anticipated arrival.

Parenting is all about practice...

And even the most experienced of parents will admit that their first time having a baby wasn't exactly a walk in the park.

But even the most experienced of parents can crash under this pressure...

Especially those who are juggling quite a large family along with the arrival of a newborn.

This is the Bird family...

Shannon Bird, who is from Utah, shares 5 children with her husband Dallin and they make the cutest of families.

Hudson was their firstborn in 2011...

And he was soon followed by Holland, then Briton, then Brooklyn, and then finally baby London, who arrived just 6 weeks ago.

Shannon works as a blogger...

And she regularly documents her life as a busy mom raising 5 children on her website, Bird A La Mode.

But a few weeks ago...

Shannon truly felt the pressures of her hectic lifestyle.

On January 28th, Dallin was working away from home...

And Shannon was left alone at home with the children.

Shannon was trying to breastfeed baby London...

But to her shock, she discovered that her milk had "dried out" and she had nothing to feed her baby with.

This only caused more distress...

And with her husband being away and the children being asleep, Shannon - in her panic - rang 911.

In the 911 dispatch audio, Shannon could be heard tearfully telling the dispatcher at 2am about her situation and how she had nothing to feed her baby.

This has never happened to Shannon before...

"I've been calling neighbors and no one will answer," she said in the audio obtained by KSL.

"I've never been in this predicament ever. My milk just literally dried out. This is my fifth kid and this has never happened."

But luckily for Shannon...

Officers with the Lone Peak Police Department were sent out to her home and they even picked up a gallon of regular milk on the way from the convenience store.

But when the officers realized that Shannon's baby was a newborn...

They went back out to the convenience store and picked up some formula instead.

"We'll leave this with you," Officer Brett Wagstaff could be heard saying as he handed over the regular milk, "We'll be right back with some formula for your baby - she's adorable."

Shannon tried to offer them money, but they wouldn't accept...

"That's the same stuff we gave my daughter when she was first born, so hopefully it doesn't upset her stomach," Wagstaff could then be heard telling the exhausted mom.

A truly kind and selfless act...
