Olive Garden Waiter Feeds Baby For Mom

How 1 Waiter Stepped In to Soothe a Crying Baby — and Her Sleep-Deprived Mom

When a family was seated at his table, this waiter had no idea what they had just been through.

The young waiter had no knowledge that they had just left the hospital, where baby Ellee had spent time enduring tests. He didn't know that her mom, Dallas French, had barely slept over the past month. All he could see was a hungry baby whose mom accidentally spilled the bottle she was trying to make to soothe her daughter's tears — and that was enough.

Instead of showing frustration at the commotion, this kind server at Olive Garden immediately took action. Ignoring the messy spill that took place just as he served their food, the waiter sat to feed Dallas's little girl so that the exasperated mom could have a chance to eat her own food. Although she didn't catch his name, Dallas shared a powerful photo of the man, along with the touching story, on Facebook.

"He fed her, I ate my salad and bread sticks, and that milk on the floor got cleaned up after we left because he just understood!" Dallas wrote. "He didn't even know what we had went through that day and showed us love an understanding — not irritated that I had made a mess and my baby was screaming . . . "
