in partnership with

Tampa Bay’s signature LPGA Tour event, The ANNIKA driven by Gainbridge at Pelican, takes place Nov. 6-12 at Pelican Golf Club in Belleair, Fla. To give back to the local community, The ANNIKA has pledged to donate $50 for every birdie scored during all four rounds with a minimum donation of $100,000 to Morton Plant Mease Health Care Foundation. All funds received from this partnership will be invested at Morton Plant Hospital to promote safe sleep for babies. 

Promoting Safe Sleep for Babies

Height-adjustable bassinets:
Morton Plant Hospital, located in Clearwater, Florida, is committed to keeping families and infants together in a safe and secure environment. Height-adjustable bassinets are designed to keep infants close to their mothers without compromising safety. Designed by Amico, these Lily Series cribs allow for adjustable heights and sides that lower. This provides mothers, who may be unable to leave their hospital bed, easier access to care, comfort, and feed. Additionally, this allows an immobile mother to quickly reach her infant in the event immediate assistance is needed.

The American Academy of Pediatrics indicates that safe sleeping practices can reduce the risk of SIDS (Sudden Infant Death Syndrome). Promotion of safe sleep for infants includes sleeping on their back, on a firm surface, near a parent. Co-Sleeping is something that is popular with new parents, although not recommended as a safe sleep practice, because it has been found to increase the risk of SIDS. Therefore, providing these functional cribs for new parents promotes safe sleeping practices, reduces maternal anxiety, and mitigates the risk associated with co-sleeping.

Sleep Sacks:
To promote safe sleep practices and reduce the risk of SIDS, Sleep Sacks can be used as an alternative to swaddling infants. The Cleveland Clinic reports that studies show Sleep Sacks can be as, if not more effective in SIDS prevention than traditional swaddling. Sleep sacks reduce suffocation risk in comparison to swaddling with a traditional blanket, where the infants arms may not be freely accessed. We would like to send discharged family’s home from the hospital with education and a sleep sack to promote safe sleep practices for the infants in the community.
