One police officer went above and beyond to make sure a baby got fed.

Sometimes those meant to protect and serve also serve lunch. To babies.

Jilli Nel posted a picture on Facebook last week that instantly went viral. Kansas police officer Andy Black responded to a call at Oak Park Mall that a woman was having a seizure. When he arrived, he found the woman was still disoriented, and was unable to pick up her baby to feed her.

Officer Black immediately offered to hold the baby. The baby was immediately ungrateful (as confused babies held by strangers often are), but then officer Black, who has fourteen grandkids, took the bottle and fed her. The baby relaxed and ate, while still keeping her eyes on the affable man.

So there you have it. Even mall cops are human beings who would help a mom feed a crying baby if asked. I hope this warmed your hearts a little bit.

If anyone needs me, I'll be at the mall asking moms who are in no danger at all if I can feed their babies. No takers so far.
